Digital Asset Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 20, 2019
Non-profit environmental organization with specific mission. People are friendly money is tight. Very socially progressive. While many do know about birds, it is not necessary to be knowledgeable about birds for many of the jobs in the organization.
Coordinator (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 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.
Development Associate (Former Employee) – Midwest – May 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.
Human Resources (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 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."
good working hours, great benefits and generous vacation and sick day policy, ok salary for non profit
management, poor retention, issues not addressed timely, problems get out of hand before they are addressed
Development Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 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.
Gained Experience, Great Purpose, Friendly Environment, Great Leadership
Director of Data Services (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 5, 2016
Audubon’s mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biological diversity. A powerful combination of science, education, and policy expertise combine in efforts ranging from protection and restoration of local habitats to the implementation of policies that safeguard birds, other wildlife, and the resources that sustain us all—in the U.S. and across the Americas.
A conservation organization with a long, respected history
Vice President (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 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.

Audubon Louisiana Walker Communications Fellow (Current Employee) – Audubon, LA – July 13, 2016
This an organization with a purpose and a plan. Employees are friendly and their work is outstanding. It is nice to work in an area that is positively impacting not only wildlife, but the lives of people and the land that they live on.
