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

Pros

Blackbaud is at its core a good company. Because at its core are the people that work hard every day. You are rarely prevented from moving around or up according to your experience and skills. Most line managers are encouraging and try to help you do your best. Being remote is an option a lot of employees take advantage of. And there is a fair amount of flexibility in terms of work hours.

Cons

The company has hit many growing pains. Acquisitions of other companies generally puts a strain on current and new staff members. It feels like Blackbaud has hit an identity crisis in many ways. No longer the small company that can closely align itself with its core market, the non-profit sector. Not big enough, shrewd enough to play with the big boys in the for profit world. It is truly a struggle between meeting the needs of investors and being true to its humble privately held roots.

Advice to Management

Find growth through means other than acquisitions.
