Internal Communication

Some people enjoy "all-hands" emails that share things completely unrelated to you or your job. I am not one of those people.

Suggestions for improvement

  • While Blackboard is a great place to work, recently there have been a round of layoffs that have put people on edge and that makes the work environment more difficult.

What I like about the company

It is the people I work with. They are very intelligent and I enjoy the challenge.
