Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Saratoga Springs, NYJuly 19, 2018
Skidmore has a great culture. They encourage staff and faculty to maintain a work-life balance. Compensation is good as is morale. Increasing diversity is a priority for the administration.

Leadership Gift Officer (Current Employee) –  Saratoga Springs, NYDecember 21, 2017
Distracted management is one of the greater difficulties at Skidmore and a culture based on tasks not goals adds to this difficulty. On a positive note, staff are collegial and pleasant to one another, and teamwork is emphasized within divisions on shared projects.
Pros
Vacation, autonomy
Cons
Lack of management and planning

Skidmore is a challenging environment to make in with staff and students alike.
Office Coordinator Media Services (Current Employee) –  Saratoga Springs, NYFebruary 8, 2014
A typical day at Skidmore involves managing student workers and interacting with both staff and students. I learned that media in college is very different than media in the public realm. I would have to "rate" both management and co-workers as average. The hardest part of the job is a lack of consistency emanating from the top down. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with the students.
Pros
Relaxed and learning atmosphere.
Cons
Working with faculty who think they are "above the law."
