    Pros

    Checks don't bounce. Parking is okay.

    Cons

    Benefits are limited. Executive Leadership management communications is corporate speak gobbledygook -- meaningless, frustrating, and at times downright insulting. There may be good individual leaders at Blackbaud. However, it does appear that as a group, a few things are true about the Executive Leadership Team. There is no emphasis on product quality, customer satisfaction, or employee satisfaction. The rule of the day is company politics. Many stupid corporate management decisions are in play every day. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are being wasted on a regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously, get a clue.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were great people.

    Cons

    Management will consistently ask the engineers for advice on how to proceed in a project, then disregard that advice and go their own way. In addition, changes are often pushed to production systems without testing.

    Advice to Management

    Create test environments, spur and encourage innovation, and USE the advice of the engineers. They know more about these technologies than you.
