    I have been working at University of Southern California full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    USC offers great benefits, especially if you put in the time- like tuition assistance and retirement plans. It’s a great networking opportunity because you correspond with so many departments at USC, including managers, professors, supervisors etc. There is the ability to internally apply to other USC jobs before they are posted to the public.

    Cons

    The team has some serious attitude problems and a high turnover rate. Frustrations with management, yet colleagues act like angsty teenagers too bothered to do their job and not welcoming to new employees. Training is basically like getting thrown in the ocean to learn how to swim.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those willing to go above and beyond their expectations and thoroughly train those who are eager to grow.
