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

    Pros

    -great people
    -market leader
    -location(Charleston SC)
    -career development
    -new CEO with some balls
    -new on boarding program for sales/marketing
    -publicly traded company(BLKB)
    -extremely competitive to get hired
    -arguably the best company to work for in charleston

    Cons

    -lack of product development under past CEO, Marc Chardon
    -got caught up in the acquisitions game
    -flagship product runs well but looks old(current leadership is committed to addressing this)
    -middle mgmt, like others have said, it is a problem.
    -sales reps get paid, solutions engineers do most of the work though. They get paid less.
    -support analysts seem to complain about lack of pay and long hours.
    -consultants are highly utilized, which can tend to burn them out quickly.
    -the marketing team has too many people for the amount of work to be done. I think they can condense those slots. Not enough revenue generators to justify the number of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New CEO has said all of the right things so far. Nice to see some fresh management. Speaking of which, there are too many managers in the middle. Also, too many ppl in marketing who don't produce enough revenue. Pump more money into product development and talented developers to help everyone in the companyt. Sales can then sell, support can support, services can implement and marketing can market the product more effectively. Have to get caught up with Product Development to compete with sales force and other market competitors. Let's be done with the acquisitions too, nobody wants to see anymore of that. If we need it, let's build it, like we used to.

    I have been working at Blackbaud full-time

    Pros

    Great impact through the work of our clients. Interesting/challenging projects. Fantastic office in Bay Area. Culture, values and work/life balance are all pluses

    Cons

    It's a big company and some things are more complicated than necessary: human resources, help desk, etc. in particular.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are a technology company so make sure we continue to evolve and stay current with the state of the art technically.
