Excellent University to work for. I could have stayed working there, however, I relocated and it was a very long commute for me.
Financial Services Department - Secretary III (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 26, 2016
Excellent University to work for. Interfaced with students on a daily basis. Developed & maintained good customer relations with students and USC Associates. There was no dull moment in that campus. The most busiest or hardest part of the job was during the open enrollment, where every students come to our Department to make payments for their Tuition. The most enjoyable part of the job was do the best I can to help students in the midst of crucial moment.
Free lunches provided by the Manager only when busy.
Health care benefits, discount on any courses you take, free schooling for full time employee's kids after serving 15 years working in the University.
Admissions Intern (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 12, 2016
This position was just an internship. It was a great job that taught me great people skills. The campus at the University of Southern California is just a jovial place to be. Therefore, interacting with students, potential students, parent and staff only increased my people skills.
Human Resources Representative (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – March 28, 2016
I had great people I worked with and we got to think outside the box on not only fun things to do with the staff in our division , but how we can make our team more efficient. Really enjoyed working there.
Great folks to work with, very challenging project
Senior Director, Enterprise Systems Implementation (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 14, 2016
USC was a great place to work. I was fortunate to have a great team. The down side was we took on too many projects in a short time frame (4 years). I was asked to lead project teams to successfully move the University's finance (GL, accounts payable and accounts receivable) payroll, HR, time accounting and their research administration systems from their 20 year old legacy systems to new state of the art systems.
A typical day was 12 to 15 hours for me staying on top of the project budgets and plans and preparing status updates for the executive steering committees for the major projects.
The hardest part of the job was keeping the teams focused on their objectives and isolating them from the internal politics.
The most enjoyable part of the job was celebrating our successes and working with the dedicated staff.
Support from the senior executives
Too much to do and not enough time in the day to get it all done
Web Developer (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 11, 2016
As a student web developer, there is a lot to learn and you can work and learn when it's an amazing place to work. Working hours are very flexible and you can work anytime you want. People here are always ready to help.
Graduate Student (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 3, 2016
good college to study. Interesting courses and interesting professors. Some are more "I'm brilliant so they gave me this teaching job" rather than "I'm a great teacher who also happens to be brilliant".
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 3, 2016
The work environment at USC is best for employees who are happy with minimal to no advancement, and where nepotism and glad-handing rein supreme. This is not a desirable place to work in anymore under those conditions.
Student Employee (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – February 27, 2016
I had a student position on campus and worked part time. Schedules were always flexible and the people were great to work with. However, there were way too many politics with academia that hampered the job significantly.
