This job is not for everyone. It is rewarding and amazing at times, but then there are those times when it is hard and takes so much out of you. One of the key elements to this job is having a great support system. Sadly, this is a hit or miss with management; some BT's do not have adequate supervision or support making their jobs all the more difficult.
This company does not operate with the best interest of their clients or employees. While they offer training, some of the overlaps are done with new hires that don't know what they are doing. For an ABA company, you'd think they would be able to have systems in place. However, management will push more cases on supervisors when we are already understaffed and no support is given to management.
The workplace culture is non-existent aside from their being clicks. If someone in management does not like you; they will blackball you from their cases. If you are in management and they don't like you they will treat you like an outcast until you quit or they get rid of you.
The hardest part of the job is the office politics and the most enjoyable part of the job are the kids.
The kids, families, and some of the employees
Lack of support, management, and hostile work environment
