    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at BlackLine full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Brought in CTO, Architects and a great development Director that know what they are talking about and "have done this before". Got rid of a development director that avoided responsibility/accountability and really didn't do anything positive. Got rid of an engineering VP that made bad decisions.

    Cons

    The ineffective and non-performant product team needs the same scrub that was done to the development management...teams have been working without a road map..kinda the whole reason for a product team...no real vision or effective direction from the product team.

    Advice to Management

    I wrote a poor review some years ago....the personnel changes in Engineering Management and the leadership of those new people have totally changed my mind. I've changed in attitude from "having to watch my back" to "looking forward to the future"

    Contracts Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woodland Hills, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at BlackLine (Woodland Hills, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    This interview process was uncomfortable. The interview was held in a glass-walled room in the middle of the reception area, which was very busy and caused a lot of distractions. I found it difficult to answer questions, as I was provided very little direction as to the responsibilities of the job I was applying for, as I was brought in by a recruiter.
