    I worked at Blackboard

    Pros

    Culture is really casual, but with good, committed people, especially on the product side. Great intentions and lots of opportunities to move and grow..

    Cons

    Really suffering over the last two years with new VC ownership. Constant reorgs and the general market space has flattened sales which has pressured management to cut a lot of corners. A lot of those corners were in people with the excuse that reorgs were necessary to align new business strategy. Reality was that Sr Mgmt had to make the numbers and they cut people to save in short term while hedging long-term with standard reorg finance/accounting shifts. Wasted a lot of money on Management Consulting expertise and ignored 90% because the required investment in OPEX personnel was too much. All go forward investments had to be packaged in CAPEX or other non-ops vehicles hence external, short-term resources are plugging the holes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real on what it takes to build a professional corporate management structure. 3 years under new management and you still haven't updated core corporate governance, policies and procedures. Reorg, reorg, reorg is reactionary. My group was reorg'd 4 times in less than 18 months, and is still running with only interim leadership.
