    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."

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

    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

    I have been working at MicroEdge full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Part of the business goals is that people have fun. You become a better person overall by learning to enjoy life, but also be responsible about it. This place encourages growth like I've never seen before. We just implemented Slack for inter and intra team communications and for someone like myself who came in knowing basics but not backend stuff, I have learned so much through Slack participation and getting to know dev teams. I made friends quick and we got super close quicker. A great group of people doing a great deal of great things in the world

    Cons

    As with anywhere, no company is 100% transparent. Here, things can be more transparent - especially when going from child to parent company - as far as the support role goes. However, they're great at hearing grievances and doing something in the way of addressing an issue head on. Also - I've never seen such a response anywhere else

    Advice to Management

    Know you're doing work which is inspiring your teams to keep up great standards. Even without pushing we know of our jobs, and we know to always achieve goals. I enjoy being able to get help from anywhere I need it and it helps me to help you in the end. Thanks for everything so far!
