"I joined the USC Consulting Group organization and hit the ground running immediately with little to no training so it was the proverbial "drinking from the firehose" situation. The experienced co-workers expected me to know exactly what they were doing rather than share their knowledge so getting up to speed took extra effort. The position overall was rewarding to work closely with clients, to make positive changes, to be that horsepower to help make the changes and watch the success."

Management Lead

"I worked with USC since late 2020 with a specialization in Auxiliary Services. My experience with the company was brief, but the university tried its best with the cards given. The staff was very friendly and willing to work hard to give the best customer service. From a management perspective it was difficult to navigate a direction to which the department would go with priorities being everchanging which caused miscommunication at times."

"USC has a lot to offer for those interested in a large university atmosphere with strengths in professional programs. My first few years there were excellent. However, it has developed an overbearing top-down control structure that is exceptionally toxic. This seems to be a reaction to recent serious legal exposures created by high profile lawsuits. In time, it may become a welcoming place to work once again. For now, I recommend caution."
