Pros

Pretty satisfied with it, though there's always room for improvement. Team is responsive and helpful.
The calendar has a nice look and has a lot of features integrated into it. It has been stable and reliable throughout the time we've used it.
The integration with our event management system is great and the UX is really good. Super user-friendly and clear with labels, flexible to add your own tags/categories, etc.

Pros

Snowball is a great product that makes it that much easier to raise money via text-to-give and other useful features. They provide a great customer and user experience.
Snowball tools helped Encuentro take our fundraising activities to the next level - super easy to use and set-up campaigns and I love the text to give feature and online auctions.
Adding items takes minutes and editing them is just as easy. I loved the simplicity of the auction itself and that it could be run by one person short on time.

Cons

The lack of a writable API is discouraging and makes it difficult to integrate with our other systems.
The calendar has little to no spam protection so users can post hundreds of bogus reviews while trying to farm clicks on our platform.
Inability to manage RSS feeds of content in a custom way, but that could just be me.

Cons

My organization is still charged the processing fees. I would imagine this is "industry standard.
Every once in a while, a purchaser has failed attempts at donating/purchasing a ticket. This usually leads to a double charge with the need to refund.
Sadly, it just was not robust enough for our needs.
