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

    Pros

    The culture of this company is fantastic. The people here are wonderful, helpful, inclusive, and knowledgeable. The office is very nice and in a great location. I enjoy my co-workers and coming into work every day.

    Cons

    While the company is making major transitions, communication/training/troubleshooting/reorganizing effectively is a mess. The training for new hires is a joke, and so is continual training within departments or teams.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more comprehensive training to new hires and better continual training.

    I worked at Blackbaud full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    For the most part, no one is going to bug you to work nights or weekends. They might try, but the culture doesn't roll that way. There's some good people that work there, and it's not a coal mine for the most part.

    Cons

    Some google searches will tell you what you need to know. The company looked to grow aggressively through the recession. However their strategy was to buy out smaller competitors, cut costs, and take full advantage of attrition. It turned out to not be a good multiyear strategy and the CEO was booted. But it was felt through the ranks long before that. No training, groups operating at half size, no resources put into the product... most people are scrambling to keep the lights on. Frustrating to say the least.

    Advice to Management

    Slim down the middle management and try to evolve as a tech company instead of an 80s conglomerate.
