I have been working at Blackbaud full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Blackbaud has very good name recognition throughout the non-profit space as well as the city of Charleston. It has very talented employees who work hard to serve our non-profit clients. It is a growing company that when hiring, tends to look to hire from within...until the VP level and up (where they tend to look outside the company).

Cons

Year after year Blackbaud continues to become more and more slave to Wall Street and the shareholders of the company. Every year we have benefits lowered or lose them altogether. Every year we are expected to do more with less. Every year come budget time, they cut more and set higher goals for the following year. Any unique culture that Blackbaud once had, is ever diminishing.

Advice to Management

If you expect employees to believe in your motto "our people are what make us great" then you should start treating them that way. And with the growing tech industry in Charleston, Blackbaud will continue to lose top talent to newer and smaller companies because they actually value their employees.

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

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Ability to move around to different positions. You will definitely make a lot of friends here if you choose to. Cafeteria on site.

    Cons

    the hours can be long. Organizational structure changes often so you have to be open to having many different managers over time.
