    Former Employee - Quality Assurance in Chicago, IL

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


    1.) Generous days off
    2.) Free soda!!!
    3.) Colleagues who care about the product
    4.) World's hardest-working Tech Support team, in my opinion
    5.) Many people have a fun sense of humor


    1.) Before the Blackboard acquisition: Poor upper management, lack of decent project planning and product focus
    2.) After the Blackboard acquisition: Too many tasks thrown on too quickly, getting lost in minor details
    3.) This is mainly just me, but I hated working in downtown Chicago - so many people, bums, crazy cabs, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When I left, the new management was doing well at working on fixing some of the processes and flubs from previous management. Keep up the good work!

    Positive Outlook
