    Pros

    Good place to learn and grow.

    Cons

    A little to click-ish and people tend to outcast you if you associate with another group.

    Advice to Management

    Some projects are a little to top heavy in terms of management.

    I worked at Audubon Engineering full-time

    Pros

    Pay was very good and the benefits were decent - prior to the oil collapse. Not sure how they are currently.

    Cons

    Owners are ill prepared to operate and grow a business. They were intoxicated with the growth experienced during the shale boom and arrogantly felt it was their skill that brought about this success - nothing could have been further from the truth! When the crash hit - they didn't know how to react and they suffered more than most companies in the space.

    Advice to Management

    Stop believing that you are smarter, more insightful or just plain better - you are not. You got lucky during the boom times, that is it - nothing more than DUMB luck.

    I worked at Audubon Engineering full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    When they were on top in the mid stream market it was good.

    Cons

    They put all their eggs (AKA Midstream) in one basket and it was the demise of the company. Very click'ish and inexperienced people in key positions. Grew way too fast without having proper structure in place.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe listen to the people that made you money in the future in lieu of the false prophets that lead you into the gutter.

    I worked at Audubon Engineering full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay and smaller-ish feel

    Cons

    Constant hush hush theories of them trying to sell the company which turned out to be true. Terrible project controls management with no finger on the pulse. Made terrible business decisions instead of sitting down to develop a best case scenario and financial analysis. Didn't utilize resources that they had.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring egos and get some folks that know how to truly lead a group. Recognize the talent that you already have in the company.
