Suggestions for improvement

  • I would improve the IT turnaround time for certain requests. This could be improved by hiring more IT staff, I imagine. I would also decrease parking costs.

What I like about the company

My supervisors actually care about me and my personal, emotional, and physical wellbeing. After every weekend, my supervisor checks in with me and asks how my weekend went. She is always available to consult on a draft revision or to answer any question I have about research in general.

What I dislike about the company

There is some crime in the area, as it's not the safest area. It would be better if USC could employ greater security surrounding campus.

Suggestions for improvement

  • As of now I don't have any suggestions or serious complaints. However I have only worked here for 3 months so far.

What I like about the company

The whole building gets along well. Everybody knows each other. The dean of the department is nice and the campus is really pretty. Public transportation is close by and there are a lot of restaurants near campus. The only problem is that the surrounding area isn't the safest so I can't live very close to work. However the whole campus is gated and there is a lot of security so I have never felt unsafe on campus.

What I dislike about the company

The surrounding area isn't the safest and HR is kind of a pain to deal with. They move extremely slowly and most times you have to physically go there and make them do someone before they will actually do it.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would make it a more ethical place, I could be more team player friendly, more one big family sort of work environment.

What I like about the company

It is one of the greatest places in the USA to work at. I have been here for almost 16 years and I am very well paid. I have wonderful medical and dental coverage and I hope to retire from her sometime in the near future.

What I dislike about the company

I really disapprove of all the negative things that seem to be happening more and more on this campus, from doctor's doing very bad and unethical things to people being fired for not being apart of the current bad situations and I feel terrible that a president had to step down from a job I am sure he loved.
