What are perks and other benefits like at Skidmore College?

Pros

Good benefits and fair pay. Oftentimes had enough/extra hours and opportunities for upward movement. Coworkers and yourself have an opportunity to get close. Learning on the job is expected and fostered; if you put in extra effort/show interest, you can learn skills outside of your job description's parameters. Can have opportunities to shift the specific areas you work. Can meet many new people of various ages. Can meet great people for future job references and friendship.

Cons

Some sexism and issues with personal space/unsavory jokes when SOME folks get too comfortable/familiar with you. Also, a small handful of male coworkers made younger female staff uncomfortable when they found them attractive (myself and others who confided to me). Sometimes this was done unconsciously, and others times it was egregious and objectively rude/out of line.

Advice to Management

Watch out for the types of jokes and stares some folks say/commit with younger women. Make sure student supervisors/managers are emphasized to check in privately and publicly with the student workers they oversee. Try to create some more rusting bonds with workers so they feel safe to note their worries. Some senior management gave off sexist and rude vibes (towards student workers AND full time staff they didn't favor, and I say this as someone they favored); maybe this is something they can work on for work culture.

Good benefits and fair pay.
