Blackboard has been a great career move for me.

Senior Oracle Database Administrator (Current Employee)
Amsterdam (Netherlands)

ProsThe is a very good working culture, motivated and talented staff are given the opportunity to learn and develop.

I thought I was quite experienced before joining Bb (MSc in Computing plus 14 years of IT industry experience) but I am very pleased with my career progression in the last few years.

I have also had good opportunities to develop both technical and people leadership/mentoring skills.

ConsWork/life balance has suffered occasionally.

Advice to Senior ManagementThree years ago the business was still slightly US-centric but that appears to be being addressed by Senior Management now.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
