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

    Pros

    Great people. Good benefits including PTO. Good pay. Work from home (if you are ever home).

    Cons

    Poor leadership that is very reactive due to budget constraints placed upon them by private equity ownership. Extreme lack of work/life balance with push for earnings from consultants who are expected to be 80% billable every week. Bonuses do not match expectations. No advancement opportunities. No opportunity for career development. Feel like a workhorse. We don't provide the best consultants for each job which is a horrible disservice to our clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip on the reality of the situation you are asking your employees to perform. Put yourselves in their shoes. No job is worth never being at home and being at a career dead end.

    I have been working at Blackboard full-time

    Pros

    The people you work along side are helpful, friendly, and a pleasure to be around. DBA's are good for the most part. Direct management respects everyone's personal life, lifestyle, etc. They are very flexible and understanding with everyone's needs. PTO is fair. Challenging work where you learn and keeps you going the entire shift.

    Cons

    No 401k matching, work location is fair at best. Pay is the pits. Lots and lots of work; tough work. Even tougher deadlines. Far too much for each person to do and no incentive to get it done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay to keep good employees. Increase staffing to keep sanity.
