    I have been working at Audubon Society

    Pros

    If you love birds, the environment, and want to interact with others who do, Audubon is the place. There are a lot of passionate people out in the field who are doing amazing work. The field is where its at at Audubon.

    Cons

    There are a lot of senior people who have been there a long time and the group could use some fresh ideas and perspectives. Technology (ie web site) is one of Audubon's biggest challenges and they could really stand to streamline their internal systems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build your web presence. The web site does not currently have any key word meta tags, which is astonishing. SEO marketing and a well written blog and newsletter could help provide steady stream of content and drive people to the web site.

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

    Pros

    I worked with great co-workers: dedicated, in many cases talented, and driven by the mission.
    There was a formerly good work/life balance, but increasingly there's a demand to be on call for the birds 24/7
    As is often the case in decentralized orgs, it was better working in field offices rather than at HQ

    Cons

    As others have noted, it often seems the new leadership team has minimal interest in conservation. They are however, sadists, seriously. Other comments corroborate that. Horrible people, who really shouldn't be leading others.
    Morale has suffered as a result, esp. in the moribund HQ
    Lots of energy expended on political intrigue and mind games.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Given the deservedly horrible reviews of the current CEO on Glassdoor (14% approval?), I'm surprised the Board hasn't fired him yet. 990 revenues don't seem to have increased.
