Assistant Dean of Undergraduate Admissions (Current Employee) – Potsdam, NY – March 6, 2018
Cut-throat business where the top 1% rake in 6-7 figure salaries while bottom of the food chain employees require food stamps to live. No opportunities for advancement unless you want to become the "yes man" of your supervisor, who you will rarely see.
Male-dominated with Trump-leaning views, not good for women, not supportive.
Assistant Professor (Current Employee) – Potsdam, NY – February 12, 2018
Cryptic ways of promoting certain people but not others, even if they are better qualified. Nepotism galore. Not a good environment to be honest. Very gossipy. Fractions, bullying. Male-dominated. Pressure to conform or else.
It's factions, not fractions... other than that, everything checks.

Truth be told: other than the misspelling of "factions", this review is very accurate!
Job Work/Life Balance
Nice part-time job while going to school there
Tutor (Current Employee) – Potsdam, NY – December 26, 2017
Being a tutor and doing research at Clarkson was an easy way to make money to pay for groceries, rent, etc. while being a student there. Tutoring is only at night from 7-11 and can be done in open hours or small group sessions. Research is more independent and based on the professor you work with.
Work hours you want
Only paid minimum wage, and some students want you to be a professor not a tutor
Structural Analysis Tutor (Former Employee) – Civil Engineering Department – October 17, 2017
I was a structural analysis tutor at Clarkson University. I graded roughly 80 homeworks every week. The Professor for whom I was grading for was very understanding of busy schedules and was a great job to have while also being a full-time student.

Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Potsdam, NY – January 9, 2017
Clarkson University is a unique university, in how much it encourages peer mentoring and peer education. I worked as a T.A for a bio-molecular class/lab a year after I had taken it. Far from just being a grader I ended up doing a lot of hands on work with the student body. Teaching the materiel to other students solidified the knowledge in my mind as well. over all a very rewarding experience.
