    I have been working at University of Southern California full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice weather but that's about it.

    Cons

    The students are low calibre and largely just rich kids at university because it's what you do, not here to learn and get ahead.
    Terrible department structures and pay.
    Little to no management.
    Awful research environment as there is little equipment and the University is poorly funded for life sciences research.
    Feel like we can't make a difference and postdocs are treated like students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some better Asst. Profs. Really low impact staff. Some can't even speak English properly.

    Doesn't Recommend
