I worked at Mass Audubon

Pros

The staff was very close-knit and supportive, particularly as I settled into my first internship. They not only gave me plenty of responsibilities to take on myself, but allowed me many opportunities to learn things myself about the reservation, as well.

Cons

As with many other non-profit organizations, it was not possible to get paid for my work at the reservation. And again, as with many other non-profits, the lines drawn between duties of employees were a little bit blurry, so I was often asked to take on many very different responsibilities--which I saw as a benefit, but might be a downfall to someone who's looking for a well-defined, dependable set of duties.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It might have been interesting to sit in on more of the committee meetings as an intern--in another internship I undertook, I was the note-taker at the meetings, so not only could I learn things from the meetings, but the other employees benefited from my attendance, as well, in that they didn't have to take notes themselves.

    I worked at Mass Audubon as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible staff, great people, incredible properties, great mission. This was a job where I was able to spend most of my day out of doors while also getting great professional experience at other points of the week.

    Cons

    Some unrealistic expectations and lack of a balanced work load but for the most part my manager was very understanding of the needs of myself and my coworkers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not too much, keep running a great organization.

    I worked at Mass Audubon full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The mission of Mass Audubon. Their beautiful properties. Great staff, really dedicated. Worked there for 8 1/5 years in the Natural History Travel office. Had a great manager.

    Cons

    Because the salaries aren't high, would be nice if they gave 4 weeks vacation. While I was there, there was a huge reorganization that was tough to go through, as I got reorged along with my manager. We were moved to a much quieter building and a different department, and it was tough to be away from people I really enjoyed being around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate the staff and their dedication!
