I have been working at Blackboard full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Need to be OK with change as the company is working through an evolution from product to solution specific. Very passionate team.

Cons

Few opportunities for formal training, professional development is mainly via on-the-job projects. However, there are plenty of opportunities for OTJ learning.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increased transparency and cadence of communication.

    Pros

    Fast paced always growing environment which keeps things fresh and motivating. We help people with their higher education opportunities which is rewarding as well.

    Cons

    Politics reign over actual performance in many ways. Communication is also an issue between various lines of business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Write some SOPs for communication, base performance off of acutal performance and not off of who you like the best or who you think is the best looking!

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

    Pros

    flexible work arrangement, depending on your manager, and fun people to work with most of the time. benefits are decent/normal but nothing to get excited about.

    Cons

    there is no on going training in the company and also no room for growth, depending on the department you work in. with so many acquisitions, integration has been messy.
