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

    Pros

    Employees are super switched-on and that energy is felt throughout the entire organization. Values-driven business ensures that employees feel empowered by the work that they do. Heavy focus on employee engagement/experience sets MicroEdge apart from the rest - beer Fridays, casual dress, ping pong makes the office a fun place to be. I love working here and would recommend MicroEdge to anyone interested in the SaaS world and leveraging technology to make a difference.

    Cons

    None. Keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    My coworkers (at the time - I don't think anyone is left) were amazing team players, supportive, and just plain nice. I met a delightful group of people working in this office.

    Pay and benefits are fine.

    Cons

    I never felt appreciated by upper management.

    Rather than understanding a difficult time in my life I was going through, they repeatedly "wrote me up" for petty issues like arrive to work 10 mins late.

    Despite the work I did for them - Including slaving over the execution of their yearly conference - I was let go days after returning from the out-of-state project. I received no recognition for the hard work I put into making a 300+ conference happen. Rather, I was pushed out due to petty legalities.

    I believe this all came about due to the change in management after the company as acquired by Blackbaud. The marketing team lost their team lead and backbone. Shortly after that the entire team went crashing. We were either fired or pushed to quit.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget your employees are people. Give them recognition. Recognize the signs of mental illness and tough times. If your employees are having a hard time in their personal life and things seem off, address it and work with them to solve the problem. Do not add to the stress. We are not machines.

    I worked at MicroEdge full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    MicroEdge is aware of the fact that their Employee's mental health and happiness at work is important - extra curriculars are common, as are team lunches and speakers, etc. Vacation time is generous.

    Cons

    Owned by a large Corporation, communication from management always feels insincere and disingenuous. Most employees stopped going to company wide meetings because they were always a waste of time. The Executives would feel they needed to communicate with their employees, but would refuse to do so in an honest and open way.... then what's the point you may ask yourself?

    Advice to Management

    Treat the employees like human beings, and quit trying to obscure things when "everything is not fine."

    Pros

    Great people to work with and even better clients to sell into. Remote office was supported.

    Cons

    Low base salary. Management decisions were made based on equity partner standard operating procedures. Very rigid. Not much flexibility on how to do things

    Pros

    MicroEdge was a good company to work for before the Blackbaud acquisition. Afterwards, it has become a phenomenal company! There is a ton of investment in the employees with engagement programs, volunteerism, career opportunities and ongoing training programs. Every person at the company strongly believes in our mission and values and works as a team to develop and enhance the Ecosystem of Good.

    Cons

    The transition into Blackbaud went relatively smoothly though at times it still feels like we are a separate company.

    Thanks for the feedback and the recommendation. We agree that career-path hasn't been a strength, and we're addressing it this year.

    Pros

    Fun work environment. Employees are diverse in age, mostly millennials though. Beer Friday, snacks and foods often, autonomous work environment, option to work from home.

    Cons

    Lack of diversity in everything else. They is definitely a hierarchy/group methodology even with co-workers that are non-managerial that can be distracting.

    Advice to Management

    Foster a more inclusive and diverse workplace. Be less inclined to favoritism. Everything else, is pretty good.
