    I worked at Convio full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was there for ~1.5 years prior to and 6 months after the BlackBaud purchase. While I was there: great teammates and lots of talent, and I worked for 2 really great directors. The excellent HR group had honest work/life balance and personal/professional growth philosophies and initiatives. I really loved working there with my team. We cared about the success of our clients and we proud to be helping them.

    Cons

    BlackBaud management was undeservedly arrogant, more or less tone deaf and far too proud of their outdated flagship product to be taken seriously. They made money, but not by really helping their clients or being much of a technology company. I was really disappointed Convio was sold to them.

    Advice to Management

    When I heard the CEO and CTO of BlackBaud at the time of the sale were no longer there, I was not unhappy. Don't be like they were.

    Sales Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Convio (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    A phone interview with the VP of Sales, followed by on-site interviews. The VP was quite pleasant and candid. The on-site was typical: I met several people including the heads of engineering, professional services and sales (again). It wasn't very technical.
