    Good company. Considerate of employees.

    Accounts Receivable Representative (Former Employee) Charleston, SC

    ProsGreat atmosphere. Relaxed but professional. Worked in accounting department, and management was pretty down to earth. Team mentality encouraged.

    ConsTemp position, so that might have been relevant, but a lot of the employees didn't seem to take their work too seriously. Pay was low, but again, temp position. I was headed to grad school, so I did not go on to a permanent position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work with taking care of your staff.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Company that keeps getting better

    ProsGreat people, great mission. New leadership is making a difference. Good work/life balance and the ability to do meaningful work.

    Consstill need more work on our product roadmap/vision but this is getting better. the people that are nay-sayers are bringing down the rest of us.

    Advice to Senior Managementzero tolerance for the people who can't see the future and the positive changes.

    No idea companies like this existed.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI'm a recent hire.

    I knew there was something special about Blackbaud when I interviewed with them. Every person I interviewed with was friendly, passionate and highly intelligent. I was ecstatic when I was offered the job.
     So far, I can't believe how good it is to work here. Yes, there are challenges, but they are nothing compared to things I've experienced in similar sized companies.

    People are friendly, helpful, and open about challenges, whether it be technical debt, process or otherwise, and everyone wants to work together to succeed.

    I look forward to a long and successful career working alongside some of the most passionate, intelligent, awesome group of people I've ever met.

    ConsI've only been here for a short while, but so far, I don't have a single negative thing to report.

    Work Hard, Play Hard

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Charleston, SC

    ProsBlackbaud is a great company to work for. They truly care about their employees and their clients.

    ConsWhile immediate managers and supervisors are conscious of your personal time, it's very easy to get wrapped-up in your work and put in long hours. I wouldn't say it's expected, but be prepared to work hard.

    Great place to work!

    Current Employee (Current Employee) Charleston, SC

    ProsOur clients are the great! Who would not want to help support the non-profit industry?
    The people will get to work with are smart, driven and have a passion for our clients.

    ConsNo organization is perfect...change level is very high now but I expect that to settle now that the new CEO is here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep on the simplification path...it is where we need to be.

    Awesome job. I got so lucky getting hired.

    Account Executive (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsThe money is good and the dress code is casual. They have a ping pong table in the office. We are not micromanaged, but are expected to sell. Beer at work (sometimes). Super nice office. Lot's of free food. They bring in massage therapists for us. The health insurance is practically free for Anthem. You can work some days from home if you hit quota.

    ConsIt's hard to get hired here. They interview a lot of candidates. Non-sales jobs don't pay as well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThanks for hiring me.
