I love what I do for the animals, not for the people I work for.

I have been working at Audubon Nature Institute

Pros

The experience is one you will never forget or never match - I have had contact with animals that most people will never see (or possibly even recognize) in thier lives. It is beyond comparison to feel like you are doing something to individually impact the survival of endangered species.

Cons

No one does this job for the pay, but we would like to make a liveable wage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Respect and treat people for what they are worth. Zookeepers these days are eduacated people with a lot of heart, knowledge, and work ethic - do not take them for granted.

    I worked at Audubon Nature Institute

    Pros

    Your schedule is very flexible. Work when you want to. Great hourly wage plus tips. Beverage staff is a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Some of the catering managers were awful to work with but as a bartender there was little exposure to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall I would say they are doing a great job. They provide high end catering services and do very well.

    If they want to cut hours they also should cut their own salaries.
