Featured Review

Current Employee - Client Support Representative

I have been working at Blackboard part-time for less than a year

Pros

Got to work with a great and passionate group of people. Very rewarding and supportive company to work for. Has a clear commitment to professional development and supports staff who wish to undertake... further study.

Cons

Dealing with time zones can be a bit painful.

Advice to Management

Consider the teams/clients your staff are involved with before making a decision to offshore the services to Asia. Sometimes it’s not about the cost saving, and actually about the client experience.
