I have been working at Blackbaud full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great atmosphere (at least in my area) and I truly enjoy what I do. I look forward to going to work.

Cons

Meager (relatively) salary; merit increase either minimal or non-existent regardless of "Exceeds Expectations" rating.

Advice to Management

Financial rewards are important to your workforce. Continue to justify not rewarding or properly compensating your employees and you'll continue to lose the really good ones in droves. No, it's not a coincidence that so many stellar employees have opted out recently.

    I worked at Blackbaud full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Spend a lot of money on top notch training from the people who "write the books" on how to do Inspired product management and agile product development right. - The products delivered help great non-profits fulfill their missions of making the world a better place - There are some awesome amazing great wonderful people who work there

    Cons

    - they don't care about employee retention: after the Convio acquisition there has been a mass exodus of dozens of really talented and knowledgeable staff. - Charleston-based salary ranges mean that if you are outside Charleston, your salary will stagnate and not rise with the market - for mid-level individual contributors who are in the primary "growth" phase of their career, there is little-to-no opportunity to grow within the company. If you want to be promoted, you have to leave

    Advice to Management

    Stop rewarding and celebrating executives who have bullish, back-stabbing behavior and are at the root cause of many top-notch employees just giving up and taking a hike. You are fostering a a workplace culture where the bad behavior of a few individuals is literally leaving wreckage in their path. Just because an executive runs a team that is responsible for projected revenue growth, doesn't mean that they have a right to bully other departments (that are responsible for large portions of EXISTING revenue) to drop what they are doing and risk their revenue to help drive the new growth.
