Director, USC Orange County Campus (Former Employee) – Orange County, CA – November 12, 2018
Manage all aspects of the USC Orange County campus. Administrative, landscaping, maintenance staff. What I learned; I took a class on listening skills and I learned the importance of really listening. Management: Professional and encouraged team interaction. Culture: So many people with so many different backgrounds all coming together to create an exemplary educational environment. Hardest part of the job-probably commuting to LA and back to OC. Most enjoyable...watching the students learn and grow.
Office Manager/Executive Assistant (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – November 4, 2018
USC is not known to have a good work/life balance, even though the have a department dedicated to it the management doesn't follow the ideas for their staff. Most recently as published by the LA Times wrong doings by the faculty are covered up. Staff tend to feel unappreciated and in some cases put at personal risk. You do not feel like you can report wrong doings. They will quickly deesclate situations to make you feel like you are the one in the wrong.

I received my PhD in Chemistry from USC. The research group was great. The school itself offered a lot of support to intentional students, though, however the classes every foreign student must take were horrible, not productive. ALI at USC campus is a useless institute.

Being that this a renown and prestigious university, they really should pay respect to employee's compensation. Grateful for the experience; however the amount of work required tremendously outweigh the compensation.
STUDENT ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 24, 2018
If you're currently a student at USC, I would recommend finding a job on campus. The pay isn't great, and you're limited to 20 hours a week maximum, but they're great at accommodating your schedule, and your managers are excellent.
