    I have been working at Blackbaud full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people
    Great industry
    A lot of the staff truly cares and wants to improve products and services

    Cons

    The biggest con i can think of is that it's such a large company that the pace of change can be tediously slow, but honestly, this is not the first company i've worked for, but it is definitely the best i've worked for.

    Advice to Management

    i know software development takes time, but we have to pick up the pace. our products are already "behind the times" and it feels like instead of getting ahead of the curve we're playing catch-up to get to where the rest of the software industry was yesterday.

    "Great name recognition but becoming slave to shareholders"

    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.
