    Love the academic environment, fantastic retirement, healthcare, and tuition benefits.

    Regular merit increases are typically very low without pushing for a raise or title change. Bureaucracy is increasing, especially with IT.

    Pros

    Worked for different offices at USC including VPD, Annenberg's Marketing and Communications department, the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, Leonard Davis School of Gerontology social media team, and for the Image of the Journalist in Popular Culture and gained so many great experiences and learned so much from each role. The pay varied but was always at least minimum wage in the state of California.

    Cons

    Could only work 20 hours a week with school.
