I worked at Blackboard full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I was employed there for over 3 years and loved the people i worked with. It was very laid back (shorts and flip flops during summer) and decentralized. My managers always had an open door policy. People helped each other whenever needed, loved my coworkers. The technical equipment we used were top notch. Learned a lot from the 3+ years i spent there. Michael Chasen was a great CEO, i left before his departure so I can't speak for the new CEO (Jay Bhatt). Got several promotions and raises. If you work hard, you'll move up - I did.

Cons

Training was non existent. First few months were really tough, but once i got hold of the Bb Learn product I did very well. Often worked thru lunch as days were very busy.

Advice to Management

Offer more training programs for your technical staff.
