Overall a great internship

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC

I have been working at Blackboard as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Great people, learned a lot, got paid well for an internship, and it was a fun corporate culture. I actually enjoyed going to work everyday.

Cons

The organization is so big, sometimes you have to work with people who are across the country (just a bit confusing with the time changes)...

    I worked at Blackboard full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good insurance and had good values. however this has changed since being bought out. Buys up smaller companies to stay ahead in technology

    Cons

    Managers will hold you back from advancing if they want to keep you in their department. Managers fluff stats to make it look like they are doing good. Do not expect managers to stick up for you. they will throw you under the bus whenever possible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Blackboard full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing benefits. Amazing people. Lots of opportunity to express your opinions.

    Cons

    The environment favors the A-type personalities. If you are forceful and outgoing, your ideas have more attention paid to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand performance bonus program to have clear metrics.
