Pros

Blackbaud values its employees, they hires great people and that makes it an enjoyable place to go to work. They will push you to be your best and your career can be as successful as you make it.

Cons

The benefits packages are not great, but it is probably comparable to what most mid-market software companies are able to offer. If you don't direct your career you could get lost in the shuffle.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase employee pay. Invest in technology, underfunding the software and hardware that is running the business will prevent the business from reaching their goals.

    Pros

    Creating Software for the Non-Profit community
    Working with people that have a passion for Non-Profits
    Co-workers are sharp and highly intelligent

    Cons

    This is a work hard environment, so you need to be up for the task and that environment
    Would prefer to have more technology firms in this area- but that is more with the area than Blackbaud

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think our managment team is strong and is taking the organization in the right direction. I don't have any additional advice.

    Pros

    There'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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Already 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.
