Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Blackboard full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Amazing, talented coworkers, dynamic atmosphere, location, growing company offers opportunity to constantly work on new challenges, avoid mundane and repetitive responsibilities. Products serving the education market provides meaningful mission.

Cons

Company is too decentralized, poor employee communication, acts like a start up but has long ago passed that point. Constant acquisition prevents focus on core improvements.

    Pros

    Empowered to work on projects outside of your job description Willingness to explore new technology Free soda Worthwhile mission Rapid growth

    Cons

    The clique of deciders: you're in it, or you're not Wanna get ahead? Don't ever go home. Since being taken private... the screws are tightening LOTS of M&A... change fatigue will set in after about a week

    Advice to Management

    Slow down, clean up the house before continuing to expand.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the chain of command
