Suggestions for improvement

  • A culture where employees feel safe and secure to discuss/report potential concerns (IE: Sexual harassement reports), and are not ostracized and/or fired for taking concerns to HR.

What I like about the company

There were many teammates I worked with directly that were awesome and there for the right reasons. The direct co-workers were never the issue, as much as the management. There were numerous harassment allegations (of various types) and when co-workers went to HR they were quickly fired for another (arbitrary) reason. My co-workers were supportive, had a 'team' mentality and were there to help children in serious need of help. The support staff, IE: therapy team, medical team, were all wonderful, as well. The MOST positive experience I took away from the job was the kids I worked directly with. I learned a lot from them and it definitely confirmed that I'd gotten the right degree/into the appropriate line of work AND prepared me for my future place of employment.

What I dislike about the company

The supervisors and management were not approachable and I personally was very anxious about interacting with many of them. It created a toxic environment with one program manager directly in charge of all employees and a limited scope of what was occurring on the wings due to only listening to select employees. (I believe there was a dramatic change in the management structure/persons in management after I had moved onto my next employer, so this account is reflective of working there from 2010-2015.)

Suggestions for improvement

  • I've heard one of the top managers has left since my time, and this may have improved things, although if my direct supervisor is still there, then it is still a bad place to work. Allowing people to use their pto instead of constantly denying requests (so hard to even schedule a doctor appointment) would help. Treating employees with just a little respect, instead of sticking so rigidly to hierarchy would help, too. Talking to employees about what they're thinking instead of assuming their thoughts and motivations based on a few out of context behavioral observations. Using a more informed, progressive approach that takes into account what we now know about human development and autism... Attitude and philosophy here feels like it is out of the 1960s.

What I like about the company

Some of the other team members were great gals and those of us at the entry level tried to support each other and keep each other's spirits up in an otherwise dismal environment.

What I dislike about the company

Micromanagement, very poor communication in supervision, supervisors not doing their jobs properly but all the blame falls on the autism facilitators. In particular goals and reinforcers were not updated appropriately so you had to scramble to keep kids busy but criticized for not spending enough time at the table. Kids would be so bored and miserable. Whole place just awful.
