    Pros

    Good retirement benefits and tuition remission for admission-eligible dependents

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees that produce work product and be more proactive in eliminating workers that rest on the laurels of productive colleagues. It’s bad for morale.

    I worked at Keck Medicine of USC full-time

    Pros

    Working for the USC brand has some cache in Southern California. The physicians are mostly excellent, so at least you can believe in what you're selling the public in the way of quality healthcare.

    Cons

    Incredibly toxic environment of favoritism that isn't based on professional merit and sexism that goes unchecked. Childish, incompetent senior leadership with no accountability. Your annual review will be conducted by one person and it will be their opinion of you without input from any other coworkers/peers. You'll be working in a neighborhood so dangerous that leadership discourages employees from walking around except in groups. You'll be forced to pay for your own parking. There are no growth opportunities - people go years without promotions. HR is useless and has high turn-over, so you can expect retaliation if you seek assistance from them. You may be sweet-talked into taking a job here with the promise of the USC tuition benefit, but since the most valuable degree programs at USC are full-time and you'll be an hour's drive away from UPC campus, you can forget about using that benefit. There are a lot of other healthcare providers in the Los Angeles area, and if you're any kind of administrator, Keck is the worst one to work for. Beware!

    Inconsistent communication and decisions from supervisors. Expecting an unrealistic amount of work from some, while failing to hold other individuals accountable.
