Behavioral Therapist (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – May 23, 2017
The momented I started working here I liked it, but after about 5 or 6 months being employed, it started to get old quick. I enjoy working with kids, but this company ruined it for me. The management only worries about the kids and not their employees, they play favoriteism around the office, and complete lack of support when a child is in crisis. Don't get stuck here, it's rewarding but the amount of work you do for not enough money is not worth the time.
Therapist (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – May 16, 2017
I resigned a stable position for the opportunity to work with autistic children. Training was horrible, no help given, then when I scored 2 points to low on the final exam terminated. Don't quit your job!
Behavioral Health Technician (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – May 3, 2017
Worked for the company for three months, and they failed to pay me for ten weeks worth of work. No one could give me answers, HR was never available, and eventually they stopped scheduling me. It's been two months since and not a single word from my supervisors. This is the worst company I have ever worked for, and the pay itself was completely unfair. Save yourself the trouble and don't waste time on this terrible company.
Doesn't pay, management is absolutely terrible, communication between team members is nonexistent

Great for entry level or college grads starting to look for position in either clinical or in operations. Work life balance can be hard on all levels but building relationships and networking is great. The pay is low but again its good for starting out and building resume. The CEO and Directors are great
Behavior Therapist (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – April 24, 2017
When this company hired me i thought i was finally going to make my family proud. I was judged for 2 months for my looks and payed minimum wage,eventually fired. I have then become depressed because i have a family to support and one single mistake with this company will cost your job,even if your new.
Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee) – Garden Grove, CA – April 24, 2017
CARD Garden Grove is an awesome place! I really enjoy my co-workers and it's like a second family to me. The company itself has an awesome mission and vision. The people who work here are really passionate, caring and hardworking. They all really want to make a difference to all clients and families at CARD.
The hardest part of my job as an Administrative Coordinator is that once in a while there are difficult parents; other than that the job itself is great!
Awesome co-workers, positive enviroment, great benefits (health, vision, bonus)
Behavioral Therapist (Former Employee) – Salem, OR – March 18, 2017
What the company does for children is great, don't get me wrong. They provide a much needed service to families with children that have autism and related disorders.
The part that was a terrible mistake was signing a contract to work for one year minimum with a management team that made everyday of work hard.
This company lacks communication with its therapists in a functional way that makes the therapist feel like a part of the team, the mindset there is very much the therapists versus management. Favoritism is in play hugely.
The pay is terrible for the amount of work and judgement from management.
Amazing company with people that care and lots of advancement opportunities
Behavior Therapist 3 (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – January 23, 2017
I've worked for this company for almost a year now and I couldn't say enough wonderful things about it. As a full time student it is great to have a company that is willing to work with my class schedule that changes each semester. In this time I have received comprehensive training that absolutely prepared me to handle any situation, as well as has given me the opportunity to receive my Registered Behavior Technician and Board Certified Autism Technician certifications. There are many opportunities to get bonuses through the company, which is nice. There are opportunities to get quarterly bonuses depending on success of your office, and referral bonuses for recruiting therapists. The job can be hard, which results in a high turnover and constant hiring, but if you have the heart for these kiddos it will be one of the most rewarding entry level jobs you can get. Not to mention that most of the management level employees used to be entry level therapists, and many of them had at least part of their education paid for by CARD in order to become supervisors.
These kids have changed my life and I'm so happy to be working with people who care about them as much as I do.
Management was hard to work with and treated you as if you didnt have a life outside of work. Compensation was extremely low considering what was expected of you. However, seeing the progress in your clients made it worth it.
Therapist (Current Employee) – Beaverton, OR – June 14, 2016
I started working at this company right out of college and it has grown tremendously during that time. If you are at all interested in working with kids and want to make a difference in the lives of those with special needs this is definitely the place for you. Not only can you start at entry level (HS diploma is required) there is tons of opportunity for growth with the RBT/BCAT certifications. CARD pays for you to receive these and help you to maintain them. The training that I received was very comprehensive and I never feel as though I don't have the support I need. I would recommend this to any person seeking a rewarding and fulfilling job that you need no experience to start.
Flexible hours, opportunities for advancement, educational assistance
Therapist (Current Employee) – Roseville, CA – April 12, 2016
The creators and employees of CARD are wonderful people with incredible empathy, big hearts, and patience. They help so many families to understand the disorder and they help the children with autism to be able to live their lives with some independence. It is a wonderful company!
IT Technician (Former Employee) – Woodland Hills, CA – February 3, 2016
10-15 employees are let go every day. management don't care about how to improve job environment at all. if you open your mouth and say something about they will build case against you and terminate your employment regardless how good you are at your job.
Behavior Therapist (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – January 3, 2016
I briefly worked here and didn't like it at all. First red flag: I applied online and was contacted within 10 minutes of my application submission. I'll hold myself accountable on that one, because clearly, that's a strong indicator that they are desperate and severely short-staffed!!!!!!!!!!! Second red flag: I was told at the outset (interview), that "training" is only a 2 week period and once it ends you're assigned cases. This was definitely a bald faced lie!! "Management," (if you can call them that) was lacking terribly. There was no sense of true leadership and integrity among management in this office. These beez (NOT the insects) were extremely deceitful, dishonest, spiteful, grossly unfair, and vindictive. BEWARE: IN ORDER TO AVERT A MAJOR CRISIS, DON'T WORK HERE!!!! If you're interested in the human services field and want to work with children with autism and their families, then this is not the company to work at. It's not worth the time, effort, and energy that you'll expend when you can be someplace else and be truly rewarded, form meaningful relationships with your colleagues and be compensated for the time that you put into doing your job. NOTE: I would have given a rating of NO stars, but unfortunately, zero isn't an option. :(
N/A-wasn't there long enough to know if there could have been any highlights
-poor management -lack of communicaiton -deceitful -low wages -high travel
