It's a place to start, not a place to stay
Coordinator (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 29, 2018
The rather cold, wall street corporate style management does not make life pleasant. Constant cuts to program, benefits, and staffing make a rather oppressive atmosphere. Promotions from within are basically non-existent in recent history. On top of that the pay does not make up for the abuse you'll receive
Not a pleasant atmosphere for the long term, but definitely an ok stepping stone, don't stop looking for your next opportunity.

Pros
Worked on the beach, all tools needed are provided, work shirt was provided.
Cons
Temporary, low paying position.

Wonderful Mission - Poor Manager
Development Associate (Former Employee) –  MidwestMay 24, 2018
Wonderful mission; poor management. Confidential complaint process is not confidential. Everything was forwarded to manager.
Employees are then punished for speaking up.
Nepotism policy on paper, not followed in reality.

The management staff that I worked with don't currently work there but the facility was impressive and newly renovated. The compensation was pathetic but the feds don't have a large budget.

A conservation organization with a long, respected history
Vice President (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 22, 2017
Incredibly committed conservationists at all levels working for modest salaries but returning great results. Because it is such a distributed organization, the experience largely depends on the immediate leadership, resources, and community support for the mission.

National audubon society
Development Intern (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 17, 2016
I was allowed to work with the National Audubon Society as a Development Intern during the summers of 2011 and 2012. While I was living in Florida, I would travel to New York every summer to visit family. While in New York I came across the non-profit organization and I supported their vision. I also saw it as an opportunity to develop organizational experience. Thanks to the National Audubon Society I gained experience in office work, such as filing, documenting, organizing, etc... My brief time with the National Audubon Society help prepare me tremendously when it came to office management with my Assistant Site-Coordinator job.
Pros
Gained Experience, Great Purpose, Friendly Environment, Great Leadership

Not great
Human Resources (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 14, 2012
Very tough place to advance career. Seemingly simple things take forever to get done. Horrible team atmosphere. Does not feel like management wants you to succeed. They dont care about creating a fun atmosphere or keeping employees interested or retained. Their motto is "come in, do you work, go home."
Pros
good working hours, great benefits and generous vacation and sick day policy, ok salary for non profit
Cons
management, poor retention, issues not addressed timely, problems get out of hand before they are addressed
