    Leadership not transparent

    Pros

    benefits are great! tuition remission option for staff. full health, dental, and vision. There is a housing stipend if you purchase a home near one of their campuses. 403b option available with matching funds. The benefits are probably the biggest pro of working at USC especially if you're looking at getting a graduate degree.

    Cons

    Leadership is not transparent. Staff and faculty had issues with the former leadership team under Nikias but the new leadership under President Folt is even worse. President Folt constantly promises change but no change has been made. It is understandable that change takes time but no real steps have been taken to even initiate change. During the height of the pandemic, leadership was nowhere to be found. Staff and faculty were eagerly looking at the president and provost for guidance but often found themselves not being able to provide students with real answers. When decisions were made by leadership, they were made hastily and often without consulting campus partners. For example, the provost recently sent out a memo letting students know they were eligible to take P/NP again. This memo was only sent to students and staff who advise students were not made aware of this policy update. When students approached their advisor about the memo, advisors were caught off guard and asked what memo are you talking about. There is no communication from leadership.
