I have been working at Blackbaud full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

In my role, I have a lot of flexibility and autonomy. I learn something new everyday.

Cons

Reorganizations happen at least once a year in each department and/or company-wide.
Amounts and frequency Promotions/Raises are very inconsistent across departments/teams.
Continual decrease in perks and benefits over the past 5 years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let the dust settle and give things a chance before changing things up - again.

    I have been working at Blackbaud full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Interesting clients
    Decent benefits
    Company culture used to be positive; now is a witch hunt environment.
    Nice location (Charleston)

    Cons

    Convio acquisition has been a disaster that has ruined company culture.
    Recent layoffs cut too deep and company lost a lot of good talent.
    Remaining employees workload is overwhelming.
    Middle management is terrified of new senior management and looks to protect only themselves.
    Company will not address core issues: poor project scoping, no cohesive product strategy and failure to manage client expectations.
    Employees are expected to work 24/7-----churn and burn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit addressing the symptoms (forecasting) and start fixing the problems (realistic scoping, making project delivery more efficient and properly managing client expectations).
