Pros

Health Benefits, 401k, and good work environment.

    I worked at Blackboard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Clean environment, Generally people are willing to work with you on issues if you approach them. Ratings are from when I worked there, 2011 and prior. The overall culture is good, people that work at Blackboard want to do good work and strive for excellence.

    Cons

    The top position needs doesn't always listen to the good people (VP's) that he has hired to guide him. Lately the environment has been toxic since Blackboard was taken private. I hear for every quarter that goals are not met that they will lay off more people. Sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transact division president needs to be re-evaluated. It seems he is on the same track as he was when he worked in the Learn division which didn't work out so well.

    I worked at Blackboard full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Availability to work on the latest software/hardware, knowledgeable coworkers, decently flexible when it comes to work hours, free snacks and drinks, good benefits package inc. paid time off and health.

    Cons

    Drama, you have to be adept at avoiding it. There are people that will throw you right in front of and under the bus if you are not careful. Upper management also has an issue with keeping the workforce informed about company direction, goals, successes and failures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better at keeping the workforce in tune with direction of the company. Nip the drama in the bud right when it starts instead of letting it continue; above all honesty is the best policy.
