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

    Pros

    Stable company, they are not going away any time soon.

    I worked at this company at a time when I really needed a job and pretty much clutched at the first thing that came along as the economy was tanking so this provided security.

    If you're lucky you can get to work with some great organisations with an inspiring mission

    Cons

    Blackbaud suffer from the big fish/little pond syndrome in the not for profit sector. Which impacts them on a number of levels:

    1. Spectacularly uncompetitive salary with no / below inflation pay rises.

    All employees can earn money and are encouraged to generate 'business leads' with existing customers. While this can be a useful/essential source of additional income, it leaves a bad taste. How can customers trust the advice they are given when ultimately the employee is just trying to milk them for all they've got?

    2. Few opportunities for career development.

    If you want to coast in your career then this is the place for you. You can quite happily sit at this organisation for 10 years spinning your wheels.

    Management are largely making it up as they go along, no real strategy or direction. Furthermore they have no real incentive for developing talent.

    3. Charleston is the centre of their world

    Which should tell you everything you need to know about that.

    4. Outdated technology

    Seriously though! The flagship product, The Raisers Edge, was outdated 10 years ago. It's a miracle it's not obsolete, Enterprise CRM isn't much better and doesn't justify the cost. The only reason it's a viable proposition is because other tech vendors aren't serious about competing in this sector.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being greedy. Management use the excuse of lower fees in the not for profit sector to justify the meagre pay for their employees.

    If you don't pay well then you are not going to attract talent, and it shows - simples

    If you really want to work here then be sure to look out for no. 1 as no one else will. . .
