Risks involved when using Mailchimp (or any other email marketing service)?

I have a user who wants to use Mailchimp to send newsletters to their list contacts.  Although I see emails would be originating from Mailchimp’s servers, they would actually be shown as originating from our domain (with the help of SPF and DKIM records).  

In view of this, could this potentially affect and risk the reputation of our domain and/or own mail server in a blacklist scenario?  Or would a potential blacklist be isolated solely to the IP addresses of the Mailchimp servers...

I have not seen any reputation server being so strict, that it looks further than the originating IP (in this case Mailchimp). Only VERY custom made spamfilters might internally blacklist you, but it's HIGHLY unlikely.

All the big mailers, including MailChimp and ConstantContact, work the same way.  At least in CC, every time I add a name, I have to agree that the person wants to receive my email.

I expect that the big mailers work closely with Spamhaus and others such that if they do receive complaints they are quickly rectified.
