    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 (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.

    I worked at Audubon Engineering full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    When market was good, when Owners were not involved in managing, employees were happy to work there.

    Cons

    No vision, no plan for downturn, lot of favoritism and some real worthless executives still employed

    Advice to Management

    Cheaper is not always better, hire some good Business Development personnel who can bring work, what you have now can't even sell water in desert.

    Pros

    Management is creative & flexible, wholesome environment with some dedicated events for "fun", organized procedures & engineering tools, continuing professional education routinely available, varied technical work across wide spectrum, no specific in-house personnel "problems" in 5 years

    Cons

    Workloads can fluctuate with client perogatives, clients can require "special handling" like any public customer, project engineer/management team communications can be strengthened with some communication system training

    Advice to Management

    Continue with current philosophies, ensure interoffice communication/expertise is maximized, utilize inter-office technical checks for cold eyes reviews to maximize independency of checks
