Project Assistant for Project RED (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – February 28, 2014
I greatly enjoyed working at USC as a Project Assistant and gained many skills from the position. Working as a Project Assistant exposed me to the many facets that go into a longitudinal study. The most enjoyable part of the job was the creative freedom I was given in terms of taking the lead on certain projects. I learned a great deal from the Project Manager and consider him to be the best mentors I have ever had.
Resident Assistant (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 19, 2017
The environment is an academic and rigorous one, but it is also very lighthearted and playful. There are laughs and a lot of silly humor that comes from the intelligent and brilliant staff and faculty.
Nice place with great stuff but beware of egoistic profs
Postdoctoral reseach associate (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 8, 2017
Everything about USC is great. But like any postdoc position it also depends on the people you work with and although many nice people are there, definitely USC is not lacking in number of good for nothing, egoistic profs. People who think are above all and they are visionary (whatever that means) and see the trend. Most of such professors' new publications have less than 100 citations, i.e., their research is useless/ irrelevant.
Program Specialist (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 28, 2017
A solid place to work. The benefits are good. The people are dedicated to the mission. The brilliant students you are serving are motivation to wake up every morning and go to work. The location is terrible and you can expect to spend a lot of time commuting. Good luck moving up in your career from within.
great place to be an hourly worker, worst place to be a salaried manager
Manager (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 11, 2017
Do not believe what your contract tells you. I ended up working double the hours I was promised. It is impossible to hold staff accountable because of the HR and Union system. If you enjoy to work at a very corporate place that has no passion for hospitality or high standards (but likes to talk about it), that pays you below average salary for double average hours, this job is for you.

Senior Admissions Counselor (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 16, 2017
The school exemplifies social work values not only in education but in practice with the faculty and staff. They provide areas for community involvement and professional development that allow for individuals to grow.
