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

    Pros

    Location, culture and overall impact of our work makes BB a great place to be. Great people (that IS what makes us great, after all) and excellent work/life balance.

    Cons

    Some jobs and roles are under-valued and under-paid compared against industry standards. For those in these roles, it can prevent BB from being a GREAT place to work. There has been some recent attrition - mainly due to comp or simply looking for a new challenge. The grass is always greener, right?

    I have been working at Blackbaud full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - I very much enjoy the individuals that I work with and the non profit organizations that we serve.
    - My manager, for the most part, trusts me to do what I need to do (and to do it well) without micro-managing.
    - PTO is better than most companies in the area.
    - The CEO is very transparent. I've always liked Marc. He's the only CEO at Blackbaud that I honestly can say that about.

    Cons

    It's very easy to become stagnant in personal and professional growth in the Products department. Blackbaud creates a variety of internal tools that are similar to those that are listed in job descriptions for progressive software companies. I haven't received any hands on experience with standard industry tools, preventing employees from growing and being competitive in the job market.

    Blackbaud invests in their engineers, but not in any other roles in the Products department. There are no clear career paths for growth. There's a lack of follow through and everyone accepts the status quo. Yet everyone wonders why there is no innovation.

    Lots of favoritism. The same handful of individuals are recognized and everyone else is overlooked.

    Be prepared for re-organization every 6 months to a year.

    The pressure is on to deliver more than what seems possible sometimes. Sales and Product Management run the show. Everyone else's opinions are secondary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest and value your people. Otherwise, they will continue to walk out the door as more progressive companies become more alluring.
