There are plenty of women in leadership positions, and women are promoted often. The maternity leave is standard, as far as I can tell - we're lucky to have one, but it could be much better.

    Any workplace flexibility is entirely dependent on unit leadership, and is negotiated at that level - there are no university-wise policies allowing for official flextime.

Not as friendly to women in STEM as it might seem.

It has a horrible maternity leave policy that forces women to invest in short-term disability insurance in order to be on leave for 12 weeks. This fails to recognize the health of the baby and mother as well as the fact that most care providers do not accept children under 12 weeks. In addition, there is no day care on campus.

It is an exciting time of growth at USC and they are increasingly focused on diversity, living in a global marketplace and all forms of scholarship

Depending on what department you work for some allow remote, work from home, but others do not.

USC has a great maternity leave policy and vacation packages. They also have great health benefits and I believe the pay is competitive (although this depends on your job and department). I do think there is very limited flexibility in terms of flex time, work from home, etc.

    Paid maternity leave is scaled - from 55% - 100% depending on the years you've worked at USC, whether you've enrolled in their supplemental disability policy and the number of weeks you take for maternity leave.
