    Senior management is overpaid, under-whelming, with little conservation knowledge or commitment

    I worked at Audubon Society full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Concerned, kind staff at local level, working hard to introduce birds and nature to people. Flexible enough to amend to ever-changing directions from senior management.

    Cons

    The Audubon CEO is a major ganef and pretender in today's conservation industry. The CEO barely raises a fraction of his enormous annual salary, he is repulsive to sophisticated donors who quickly ascertain his weak depth of knowledge and little personal commitment to the cause. He is, after all, a newspaper salesman from San Jose. The CEO inspires fear from all who work for him. The entire organization has had all enthusiasm sucked from its veins. He commands instead of asks; he blames others for problems instead of fixing the problem; he drives employees but offers little direction or coaching. He talks of the "global scale" of Audubon, but can't show any real results saving bird species or habitats that Audubon is directly responsible for. He is slow at the helm: look at Cornell's E.D. John Fitzpatrick timely and excellent NY Times essay on the extinction of passenger pigeon. Thanks to its CEO, Audubon is irrelevant, immaterial, inapposite, inapplicable, inconsequential, insignificant and unimportant now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the CEO and his useless band of senior sycophants. Audubon's current management is contemptuous of every conservation battle they never had to fight. The current leadership cannot hold a match to the achievements of preceding managers. They should spend less time with women Cirque du Soleil dancers whose nude bodies were painted as birds, and more time with practitioners of habitat protection at local, community and regional levels.
