Pros

Helping non-profits as a side effect of making money for senior execs. It feels good helping so many good causes but sometimes you wonder how much you are really helping them vs just making money.

Cons

They do not value their employees and their Austin office is terrible. Pay is below average there is a lot of vague pressure to do better, somehow. They tell employees to wait for it to get better but they do nothing to really help. The office in Austin is terrible and they make no effort to actually make it better. Whoever is spending money on that office is completely inept.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your people better and try to really help your customers not just find ways of getting more money out of them. Fire your building administrator and be nice to your employees. Or just close up shop in Austin and go back to Charleston and go back to being the low tech company you used to be.

    I have been working at Blackbaud

    Pros

    Great team of fun people who enjoy serving non-profit clients while enjoying all the perks and benefits of a major for profit company. Austin Domain location offers many amenities and entertainment options.

    Cons

    Needs to press the accelerator on innovation for new non-profit fundraising and advocacy solutions. Company has tendency to coast on strength of market position instead of pushing technology forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees want to hear what the next exciting benefit/perk coming is. What about Stock Purchase Plan? A real gym/health club reimbursements, or just simply, better snacks. If you want to compete in Austin, you gotta have some of this. You have to step it more than what you offer in Charleston.
