Featured Review

Current Employee - Sales Director

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

Pros

Focus on people, culture, diversity. Strong investment in Products and Sales, coupled with focused growth strategy continues to provide career growth opporutnities and high employee retention. The... future is bright.

Cons

Need to increase engagement with entire employee base and new remote workers due to Covid-19. Senior Leadership can be too invisible for lower-level employees.

Advice to Management

Continue to innovate, but move faster with product rollouts , especially where releases can be monetized to provide additional selling opportunities.

Current Employee - Engineer

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

Pros

Mason, Ray and EVERY leader and manager are busting their butts to take care of us and our business. Every single associate. Every single customer. And every single shareholder. I have worked for... many employers in my time and have never experienced this level of drive, commitment and openness. We are a small company. We work hard. We care deeply for each other. We try to do the right thing. We screw things up sometimes - like all companies.

Cons

We have a handful (perhaps several handfuls) of associates who need to move on from Benefitfocus. Their actions are selfish and disruptive to associates and to customers. It appears they have lost... sight of the realities of running a business and taking care of each other. Most everyone here is a high performer AND a team player. It is obvious when you don’t pull your weight.

Advice to Management

Thank you! We are all pulling together as best we can. Just like we must take care of our families first - most of us recognize you have the best interest of our business in hand - and there are many... dependencies to balance. Continue to Stay open and transparent as we move through these months.
