Audubon was a wonderful company with a lot to offer but was badly hurt by the industry downturn. The owners did all they could but had to layoff a high percentage of staff in order to survive. Hopefully an upswing in the market brings them back to good working order
2 words - Audubon Surprise If you work there you will hear these words. They mean on any day having nothing to do with job performance you can walk into your office and be given the "surprise" - time for you to go.
Good co-workers, decent benefits, decent pay
too many owners with thier own agendas, no job security

Working for Audubon was intimidating. From the first day during the Orientation meeting it was mentioned several times that we would be "fired" if you fail to turn in your contact reports on time, "fired" if you mess up writing checks, "fired" if you don't dress correctly. I have never in all my woking years felt so unappreciated from the get go. Everybody attending the Orientation meeting was flabbergasted and nervous going forward.
I enjoyed working for them, but they no longer have a project for me.

Typical ROW agent day, can vary quite a bit. From contacting new or previously contacted land owners, to negotiating deals, to tracking down persons that other agents were not able to find. Learned quite a bit about the ROW industry from the project with them, and moved into higher responsibilities than I was initially brought on for. Co-workers were co-workers; can have a few you may not like, get a long with, or like how they work, but, most of them were just fine and you learn to deal with ones you do not like by brushing it off and staying on your tasks at hand. Hardest part was dealing with stubborn land owners. Most enjoyable was the opportunity to meet all sorts of new people, talk with them and build a good relationship.

I enjoyed my time with Audubon, however short it was. The company has a great mix of people working for it, all of them very knowledgeable in their field. Unfortunately, it has been severely affected by the downturn in the energy industry and has suffered massive layoffs over the past year.

Great pay, great looking offices, great equipment...and fun people and culture. However, management and leadership are sorely lacking. Not enough Sr. Engineers employed here, too many young professionals with not enough experience to lead teams.
