    Former Employee - Technical Support in Poughkeepsie, NY

    I worked at Vassar College full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the camaraderie of many of the Staff, Faculty and students. There was a sense of achievement when projects were completed and that success was enjoyed throughout the team.

    Cons

    At the time of my employment, the CIO was not one I admired. Many of the behaviors he portrayed were uncomfortable and I found some of his decisions to be less than appreciated by the staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replacing bad people was a great start. Offering early retirement to good people however, will leave a brain drain on transferred knowledge.
    The IT Department, especially user services was particularly overlooked on workload balancing and appreciation.

Getting into Vassar College takes more than a WASP heritage and preppy nickname. The highly selective school enrolls about 2,450 students each year, most of whom graduated in the top 20% of their high school class. It has a student-faculty ratio of 9-to-1 and a list of alumni that includes standouts in every area from business to philanthropy. Vassar has no "core curriculum" -- students may concentrate in a single discipline, a multidisciplinary program, or they may design an independent major. The only universal requirements for graduation are proficiency in a foreign... More
