Good benefits. Recommended if you can be happy at a desk job
Program Manager (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 18, 2018
Recommended if you can spend your time behind a desk and are ok with taking instruction in a highly structured hierarchy. Raises, promotions and advancement are not offered, you have to apply to a different department in order to move up. University policies not followed.
Safety/Security Coordinator (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 14, 2018
A normal day would include checking in for assignment to one of the residence on campus. An overall briefing on what's transpired while our crew was off-duty, any restrictions that may have been implemented and special events that may affect our clients overall safety.
Private Tutor (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 14, 2018
Great community. The tutor center administration was easy to work with, most folk were very friendly and easygoing, and the process of matching students to the tutor best suited for their needs was fairy accurate.
Easy system to work with
No onsite rating system of tutors for the students to see.
Can be a good place to work if you find the right department.
Program Director (Former Employee) – University Park Campus - Downtown – August 13, 2018
Upper management in some departments have no connection to the staff. There is a huge disconnect which causes undue stress. Way too much emphasis on bottom line resulting in working multiple jobs without a pay increase.
Benefits and campus life
If you question anything you are seen as a trouble maker.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 13, 2018
Great job for people interested in a career in research. Excellent professors and researchers who are willing to help and guide you at every step. Great if you are open to meeting and interacting with people from different countries and backgrounds.

USC-Alzheimer's Therapeutic Research Institute
-Administrative Management and HR are biased -Minor group of employees were favored more with a lot of incentives -Minor group of employees are waiting to retire, with very high salaries and little work output, causing unbalanced work loads for team members -A lot of unseen politics between units leaders -Hard workers tend to be overlooked and unappreciated. -Friendly employees with Admin management and HR are protected despite poor performances -Everything is wireless and employees can work remotely from anywhere. Great improvement.
Great benefits, easy going environment
Very difficult to fire employees even when work performance was below minimum
HR Transition Manager, OCM (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – July 29, 2018
Excellent benefits, and reduced education for staff!! Working on campus is fun, engaging and memorable. Having the opportunity to build new policy and procedures using best in class innovation technology is exciting.
Research Programmer II (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – July 9, 2018
Generally the working environment is good. But for the last 2 years working in there the job security is not that good anymore. We were doing health environmental research funded by NIEHS. "National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences" and the projects is getting fewer.
Flexible working time
the last 2 years working at USC, I find it too hard to focus because there were several projects coming in at the same time
Great place to work with service supports and foods.
Clinical Project Coordinator (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – July 6, 2018
USC offers a good working environment to employees to learn new experiences, to improve communication and problem solving skills, and to handle different cases. The workload level was varied day by day.
System Technician (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – June 29, 2018
bottle neck is alway at the neck, not at the bottom. this place is run mostly by old managers who's mind set are dated at least 20 years ago, a lot of micro management, no vision at all, wasting parents' hard earnd money.
