Would not recommend.

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Charleston, SC

I worked at Blackbaud

ProsThere's a gym in the building. Generally speaking, employees are nice and easy to get along with. The exceptions are fortunately few, and unfortunately in positions of authority.

ConsManagement has much to be desired (see caveat in pros section).

Advice to Senior ManagementAlready given by so many others as well; none of the advice was heeded.
Treat your employees with respect.
Treat your employees fairly.
Take responsibility for the product you manage.
Look to yourself first for reasons why your admittedly smart and talented employees don't succeed.
Be humble, especially if you were promoted simply by being there longer than other people.
If you feel like you might be doing something wrong, you probably are.
Your employees are smarter than you think they are and that's why they are leaving in droves.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
