    I worked at ITHAKA full-time


    I worked for JSTOR, a division of ITHAKA that has wonderful leadership at the very top, as well as a truly collaborative and supportive environment on the editorial side. There are many new and exciting things going on at JSTOR, and very smart people doing good work.


    1. Sometimes it seems like the organization wants to take bold steps to change, but simultaneously feels bound to the way it currently operates. 2. Depending on where you fall in the structure, there may not be many opportunities for growth beyond mid level.

    Average Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at ITHAKA (Ann Arbor, MI).


    Applied via career site and got a callback really soon. 3 Interviews and the questions were really basic.

    But i was really unhappy about was that there was no response. they never even came back with a offer/no offer at all for many weeks. Really wish it could have been a bit professional.
