Poor organization and management
ABA Therapist (Current Employee) – Clive, IA – November 13, 2017
Working with the children and seeing their development is rewarding, that is something I loved about this job. However, management is poor and the work environment is very hostile in the ABA clinic. Staff members are generally 22-25 year olds who do not give support to coworkers. When I asked questions in the beginning, I was looked at like I was incompetent and some of the staff members who have been there a longer time PURPOSELY try to intimidate the new team members. Y'know, because status of who has been there longer is soooooo sought out. Also although we are trained, no one answers you directly. That's the frustrating part of starting the job because you have to find out things yourself. There's very little team member support.
Lastly, the pay is very unsatisfying. Compared to ABA therapists/specialist around the nation, The Homestead very much underpays their staff.
Working with children, great supervisors
Hostile coworkers, low pay, unorganized management, little communication
