Strong company dedicated to bottom dollar rather than employees

I worked at Blackbaud full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Some autonomy within individual teams

Cons

Seemingly, corporate goals are more driven by sales goals and gobbling up competitors rather than on the long term plan of being able to properly staff the business increases. Would like to see more employee support for increased work loads.

    I had high hopes after our acquisition, but none of them are panning out.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance; enjoy working with customer base (nonprofit organizations).

    Cons

    Information is not communicated clearly to employees or customers; company feels like two (Enterprise vs. General Markets); processes are unnecessarily overcomplicated/not clearly communicated. No information about our 2013 benefits has been communicated yet and many stand to lose vacation time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you care about retaining people who came over during the Convio acquisition, I'd address the issues of employee morale in a realistic way ASAP, as well as any changes to our benefits.

    I worked at Blackbaud full-time

    Pros

    Many opportunities for advancement, if you get in the good graces of the right people. Don't make a mistake b/c it will not be forgotten.

    Cons

    Blackbaud has made some internal organzational changes in the last few years that make it a difficult place to work because the employees are having to battle with each other for resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at some of the people that are leaving the company and then squarely place the blame for those departures on some existing executives.
