    I have been working at University of Southern California full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very nice working environment, beautiful campus, convenient to downtown Los Angeles, academically stimulating. Lots of support from the University for personal and professional development.

    Cons

    Nothing beyond the traditional downsides of working on a college campus, such as limited and relatively expensive parking, and the general acceptance of only one type of opinion as legitimate.

    Advice to Management

    Please focus on your specific job descriptions to make the University as academically excellent as possible, rather than following whatever trends you feel will reflect best upon you.
