Featured Review

Current Employee - Strategic Account Manager

I have been working at Salesforce full-time for less than a year

Pros

Onboarding is amazing (training, enablement, Bootcamp...), work-life balance is second to none, and client interactions are very high-level when you come with Salesforce name on your business card.... Of course there is always room for improvement, but as a seasoned professional (18 years), I can tell it's an incredible place to work for on many aspects and there is not a single day that I regret my choice

Cons

It might be challenging to evolve in an environment with such a rich offer that keeps growing with time. Skills to develop are not just Sales ones, but also Consultative Selling. Resilience is kee,... patience is mandatory... It takes time, can be frustrating, but we never get bored

Advice to Management

Keep culture like it is no matter how big the company grows in size ! Make sure career opportunities & promotion processes remain transparent

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.
