I worked at Blackbaud full-time (More than 3 years)

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 Management

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

    Our entire company shares a deep passion for our nonprofit customers' causes. We enjoy a very respectful and open work environment, and have fun. Our main offices are in great cities. We are continually improving our internal operations, processes, and systems.

    Cons

    Sometimes working for a larger company (large for the space we work in, anyway) can mean needing to be patient to get good ideas heard and acted upon, building consensus can be challenging. But our executive team are good listeners and open minded about recommendations for change

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to those great ideas and helping us improve our business.
