I worked at Convio full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

I would say that the people there genuinely cared about the non-profit clients they were serving. The place had a positive karma because it indirectly helps clients deliver vital services to their constituencies. That included Katrina hurricane and Haiti earthquake victims as an example.

Cons

Stock options (the standard at the beginning) have given way to the RSU (restricted stock unit). This is not great for the rank and file, especially since they no longer award them in sufficient numbers to be anything more than a token incentive.

Also, the company was recently acquired by chief competitor BlackBaud. There is no telling what they will do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Tech people in Austin have a LOT of options. Don't let all that valuable corporate knowledge and experience just walk out the door.
