    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Blackboard full-time

    Pros

    Most people there are friendly and welcoming

    Cons

    No balance between home and work life
    Salary paid positions are awful because you'll end up working 10+ hours a day with no extra compensation or appreciation for what you do or the time you put forth
    Management is both horrible and unprofessional
    Training across all departments is looked at as a foreign subject
    More consumed with acquiring new companies and acquisitions then taking care of their employees
    Just overall "backwords" company whose priorities are not where they should be

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and actually do some work for once rather than having everyone below you slave away all day while you do absolutely nothing

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    work / life balance (sometimes)
    compensation

    Cons

    way to decentralized, every product has a different team with different objectives and equal power

    the corporate structure is severely backward

    senior management doesn't care about broader team interplay

    egos and meetings with no real productivity

    no innovation, terrible central customer support, many broken internal systems.

    they would rather acquire and further screw themselves from the inside out for profit rather than innovate

    Advice to Management

    You are not the big shots you once were, you are a dinosaur with deep pockets. Focus on fixing internal problems before acquiring more companies and adding to the mess. efficiency and team camaraderie are non existent. fix that first.
