I have been working at Blackboard full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good opportunity to contribute, advancement opportunities are there, lots of smart people, lots of energy.

Cons

Work/life balance is 'okay,' but could be better, Retirement benefits are sub-par, Need clearer insight into decision making process

Advice to Management

Transparency has been great, please keep that up... some decisions have been surprising.

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

    Pros

    Great people, fun company culture, challenging projects, beautiful office space.

    Cons

    lack of resources (budget), lack of man power = extremely long hours, company seems to be cutting costs to the extreme, no opportunities to advance in my particular department.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting costs just to make your number to Providence. There is collateral damage you may think just goes away on its own, but it wont. You cant expect the same level of service after reducing headcount and getting rid of contractors and consultants.
