3.9I worked for USC for a little over six years. In general it is a great place to work. Most of the people were very professional and pleasant to work with. I was part of the Legacy Support Team and we were charged with keeping the systems up and running and to provide assistance in conversions to newer systems. I worked on a lot of systems that were inherited from other departments and not well documented. We had to figure them out strictly by interviewing senior end users and reading through the code.
My one complaint is that they did not provide much training to most of my team. I and others could not see the rationale on who got training and who did not. I thought I did a really good job on all my assignments and received praise from departments I worked with. There were about 12 other programmers laid off and 4 others who were fortunate enough to find employment beforehand. If you take it upon yourself to upgrade your skills but you don't get the chance to use it often it is very difficult to move up.
Being a seasoned Pick programmer this seems to be the way Legacy people in an organization moving to newer systems are treated in general so I cannot say that USC was any different.
Overall I think USC was a great experience and that I am all the better for it.
2.9Value staff and students more. Give faculty more support staff. Do away with the strict hierarchy of power. More collaboration between departments. Written policies and procedures. Stronger leaders.
