Current Employee - Director in Washington, DC

I have been working at Blackboard full-time (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

    Work life balance is great in certain departments. Mostly smart people dedicated to their job. The industry is an interesting and exciting one to be in right now.

    Cons

    Getting a good manager is hit or miss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruiting for better talent needs to be made a priority. Current recruiting practices are a travesty for a technology company.

    I have been working at Blackboard full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working here is fast-paced and fun. Lots of learning on the job and new projects to keep you interested. Most people actually really care about teaching and learning, which was a big surprise to me.

    Cons

    Busy work, too many meetings and PowerPoints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should make it more clear how to get a raise. I got an excellent review, but I can't figure out how to translate that into a raise or a bonus.
