Suggestions for improvement
- Get a new owner. Under the current leadership suggestions are not accepted, rather ridiculed.
What I like about the company
I enjoyed working with special needs students and developing a bond with a student and often time his/her parent/guardian. I also enjoyed the staff I worked with. My colleagues are the only reason I stayed sane during my time with the company.
What I dislike about the company
Everything. The Doctor (also owner) is unethical, degrading, emotionally and verbally abusive. During my time at the company I lost all sense of professional confidence often leading to a lack of personal confidence. Employees are yelled at in front of each other and clients. Employees are mandated to alter assessment scores per Doctor's orders. This assists clients in receiving services needed, but is unethical. Employees are degraded constantly. Additionally, employees are illegally compensated. Overtime is not paid, but it is mandated to finish tasks. The owner will not allow employees to leave if tasks are incomplete. Employees are not provided the state of CA sick days (3). If an employee is sick, she was required to work overtime to make up the hours. If she did not, she was not compensated. If she did work the overtime, she was not paid at an OT rate. I provided 9 business days' notice when departing the company (1 day short of a traditional 2 weeks) and was not given my final paycheck on my last day of employment (CA law). I was told that I was unprofessional for not provided upwards of 1 month notice. Overall, this company is a disaster and deserves to be shut down.
