Behavior Monitor (Former Employee) – Lawrence, MA – June 27, 2017
It was a great place to work. A lot of independence with scheduling etc. Very flexible. Some later evenings based on client's availability. A lot to do from home as well, which isn't always a bad thing.
company lunch 1x per month, great staff and supervisors, flexible
Receptionist/Billing Assistant (Former Employee) – Warwick, RI – July 24, 2017
Management did not know how to treat employees. Very rude and ignorant. New HR supervisor was not pleasant. Thought she own the company. Co workers were friendly in your face but talked behind your back.

NBA has its bumps like every employer but the job is great. You get a laptop and phone. Really flexible hours. No micromanaging . There is great trust and autonomy. They really value the staff and treat us well including buying us all lunch once a month. I'm not sure which disgruntled ex employees write reviews but my supervisor is always there even answering questions on the weekends or late night and never complains.

I initially gave the company the benefit of doubts. I might have been wrong for doing so. There is very little ongoing leadership support and opportunity for in-service trainings is virtually almost non-existent.
Flexibe schedule and good feeling to help families
Direct service worker (Current Employee) – Warwick, RI – February 15, 2016
I have been working as a Direct Service worker for several years. I get infrequently get raises and get called all the time about constant new changes in the rules. I found out fellow PASS workers get paid 13$ at seven hills, the most I can get paid here is 12.75 but I started at 10 dollars.

Working with staff and families is the best part of this position. However, the CEO and administration makes working here absolutely unbearable. While there is flexibility in your schedule, administration continuously adds cases to staff caseloads resulting in burnout and turnover. They also offer no support and offer next to no training for staff in the field. It's apparent that the welfare of the staff is NOT a priority, PROFIT is for the CEO. This agency thinks nothing of firing people. The employees are in fear of losing their jobs and don't have a positive regard for the administration. This has been a nightmare experience.
Flexibility in scheduling, work with families
Lack of support, pressure from CEO/admin, job instability, etc.

NBA is a fun, relaxed work environment! The flexible schedule gives you the opportunity to work from home which is great! There is also billing incentive to let you earn more $ each month. The company also provides mileage reimbursement to all full-time employees! Staff is supportive of one another and it is more like working with "family: than just co-workers. The most rewarding aspect of the job is working with the Families. They are all so different which make every day exciting and challenging!!
flexible schedule, great benefits, mileage reinbursment, billing incentive

I joined Northeast Behavioral Associates couple of years ago, and I am still working there. The admin team and my co-workers are very supportive. I also love working with the clients, and their families. I recommend this place.

Life at NBA RI was really tough under the old management -- up until about April 2015. So much drama generated by the Director of Operations! It was very difficult to operate with so little guidance and so much drama. My friends tell me that so much has improved with the current team. Thank God the CEO cleaned up the old management. Pretty sad that some people have nothing better to do than make things tough for the folks that are there trying to help children and families.
Definitely a great place to work now that the dead wood is gone. So stressful with so many agendas! I was driven out by the previous management and truly regret it.
Owning a Human Services Company Should Be About Helping Others
Clinician (Former Employee) – Warwick, RI – November 3, 2015
I enjoyed spending time with some of my co workers. Employees are often overwhelmed and management is mainly focused on money rather than quality work with the families. I enjoyed working with the families and felt I provided quality work. However, my efforts often go unrecognized as employee benefits have been consistently cut over the past few years. The atmosphere is also stressful as employees tend to be fearful of losing their positions. Most stay because they enjoy the families they work with and the type of work that they do. The agency should focus more on the well being of families rather than lining the CEO's pocket.
Clinician (Former Employee) – Warwick – October 22, 2015
This agency had potential and they made a lot of promises when I was hired. I realized quickly that it is all about money to the CEO/agency and not about providing quality services. Cuts are made frequently at the expense of employees and/or clients in order to line the CEO's pocket. Employees are treated horribly and are all miserable. I was constantly afraid of losing my job when working there and this caused a lot of stress. Beware if you interview there. They may seem pleasant, but it doesn't last long.
Behavior Specialist (Current Employee) – massachusetts – October 20, 2015
coaching parents on how to manage difficult behaviors in children is very rewarding. The job requires constant travel, and the demand on my time away from my family is difficult but more so the required billing hours can be nearly impossible to reach. In addition the bonuses & incentives for working/ employee recognition is nonexistent.
Administration (Former Employee) – Warwick, RI – July 28, 2015
The mission of Northeast Behavioral Associates attracts great employees and those employees are truly the best part of working here. Other than that, it's pretty bad. The CEO may have created this company, but he does not show signs of believing in this mission. This company is for profit and that is the bottom line for the CEO. Not only that but he is condescending and difficult to work with. The whole time I worked there I had a constant fear of losing my job. Turnover is extremely high due to either the CEO firing individuals or employees not being able to take the pressure of working for him. I would say these issues are mostly for administrative staff who have direct contact with the CEO. Proceed with caution if you are applying for an administrative role...this is a very tough place to work. The job is easy but the mind games are not worth it. Look elsewhere.
