    I worked at Skylight Opera full-time

    Pros

    Skylight was a low-key environment when working as part of the administrative staff. Small staff. Flexible schedule, allowed a casual start/end time. Vacation was minimal the first year, but quickly accumulated. Nice touch to get your birthday off as a holiday. Gain a lot of experience on a variety of tasks, given the small staff size.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, they haven't kept pay competitive. Most people have worked many years without a raise or even a cost of living adjustment. High staff turn over, seems to revolve every few years. Not much room for growth within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Skylight is a real community gem. Productions are clever. Fundraising needs more emphasis. Competitive pay would keep people on staff for a longer period.
