How employees describe working at Blackboard Inc.

Poor communication between HR and workers

Posted 16 days ago

The importance and detail of education assistance and dedication to class and professor accessibility.

Very clique oriented. They do not care about their temp employees nor do they communicate in an adequate timeframe. Camilla in HR is very condensing via emails and do not have a proper system for reporting neglegence, discrimantion, or returning equitment. Loved the job when i had it. Needs more pay

Review from Customer Support Dept

ilike everything about this company

I am proud to work here

Asked to all employees at Blackboard Inc.

  • Start with 20 days PTO including sick leave. Use it or lose it.

  • Hourly employees receive vacation time after one year. Salary employees receive their time after 90 days. The amount of time you receive is dependent on your tenure and hours worked. After 4 years I was allotted 96 hours a year. They also allow you to borrow vacation time if you need it. Typically, you receive your base rate(wages) per hour.
