Audubon Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove is situated on a historic 18th-century site. John James Audubon Center is to educate and inspire people to cherish and protect the natural world, by preserving Audubon’s artistic, scientific, and historic legacy and celebrating the conservation movement he inspired while serving the mission of the National Audubon Society.
Audubon Center tours are disappointing and a waste of money, the guide was bad and indecipherable, according to a review by Tim W. at yelp.com
"The tour is bad. The guide, who I assume is a volunteer, talked too much and has a heavy accent and speaks far too quietly making him indecipherable. Waste of time not to mention $14 per person. The museum and grounds are ok. But the tour was brutal. Very disappointed."
Project Controls Analyst (Former Employee) says"There are too many signals don’t know what to do and how. Management is lacking and the PMs are untrustworthy. The company milk its clients. Not sure how they are still existing. As long as Audubon is in the business the more work other firms will get to clean up their mess. Cons: Not trustworthy"
Survey Supervisor (Former Employee) says"They underpaid their employees. The turnover rate was well above average. And the reason is simple the company only cares about their profit margins. Plus they employ alot of family which is a bad thing. Certain individuals got away with calling in weekly while others were held to a different level. Plus you never heard from upper mgr at all"
Anonymous (Former Employee) says"Upper management on a severe ego trip. Extremely stressful environment driven by the whims of senior management. Cons: no job security"
Designer (Former Employee) says"Poor management no instructions at all, backbiting, backstabbing culture is the norm."
Party Chief (Former Employee) says"Some good people to work with but some project managers very cut throat always looking for ways to dip into your pockets. Will hire you at a fair and agreed to wage. Then try to cut your wage telling you that they under bid the job. Cons: Time off without pay"
Rodman/ Party Chief (Former Employee) says"I'd look for a better Survey firm to work for and don't settle for less. They put terrible bids out on jobs and never kept their word. Never really cared about the employees. Cons: Unprofessional, Terrible Management, Benefits, and Advancement Opportunity. Inconsistent hours"
Project Support (Former Employee) says"There is a lack of communication between upper management and the employees. Management does not have the employees in mind when making daily decisions."

Project Engineer (Former Employee) says"An average place to work and get a paycheck but very political and clannish. Unless you have your clients, forget about any advancement. Just show up, keep your mouth shut and do what you're told. Highly dependent on a few clients all tied to offshore GOM. When times are tough like now, layoff. Cons: Highly cyclical work load and political office environment"
Project Engineer (Former Employee) says"Concern is more on keeping budgets low instead of making it a great place to be at."
Instrument Operator (Former Employee) says"This company will lie about your job duties and location to get you somewhere nobody else would want to be. After you're there they'll only give you per diem for the days you worked, but only work you 3 days a week. Can't make money that way. Cons: Not helpful when you bring up the fact they lied."
Piping Designer (Former Employee) says"I loved working here ( Houston office ). My direct manager was also great to work for. However, they called several of us into a conference room and laid us off. No warning. Just immediately laid us all off."
Sr. Lead Pipeline Mapper/Piping Designer (Former Employee) says"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."

Project Engineer/Manager (Former Employee) says"They bring you in, promise the earth, then lay you off at the next downturn. The only way to stay is to grovel to management or be related to someone in the Louisiana home office. Cons: Inept management, hire’m fire’em mentality."
