Pros

Willing to hire inexperienced people. Good environment for networking. Good place to build new skills if you're a self-motivated learner.

Cons

Low pay. Long hours. Lack of respect for employees. They talk a good game, but their actions say something completely different. They squeeze employees for everything they can get and find reasons not to give raises. They also are pretty underhanded with their customer. Customer are nickle and dimes and lied to to make sales, which results in a lot of angry phone calls.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your employees better or the brain drain will never end. Follow through on the talk, or you just end up with disenfranchised employees.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Seriously, get a clue.
