I have noticed that Skype goes "online" whenever I turn on my computer.  A camera screen pops up to take a online profile picture.  Is my privacy being compromised in any way?  Can anyone, including employees at Skype, see or hear through the camera screen?

no.  That window asking for you to take a picture for your profile picture is just a regular function of Skype.
