    I have been working at Butterfly Effects full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great group of owners, clinicians, executives and staff that have the same common goal of
    making sure employees feel supported and appreciated and great services to families.

    Cons

    Mainly a field based group so one must be confident and independent. More support has been put in place over the last year and a half to help with some of the distance issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep promoting people from within and focus on recruiting the right fit for the role from the beginning. Those that seem to not work out were never meant for the role to start with and could have been filtered out before hiring.

    Pros

    Working with the children
    Part time opportunity allows you to have more time for personal life
    Free training

    Cons

    You are disposable
    Lengthy application process
    No growth
    Rude managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about your employees they are the root of your company. People are not disposable when they don't match with clients needs they should be given other clients/ other opportunities. Overall your employees should be treated with respect and don't waste people's time that are trying to work with you.

    I have been working at Butterfly Effects (less than an year)

    Pros

    There are some very nice people on the office staff. If you have no experience and need to get experience to move onto something better, this is one of many possibilities. Initial tutor training is very good.

    Cons

    Understand that you are disposable to them. you are not seen as a human being, just a cog in a money making machine. They make lots of promises, but don't expect those promises to be kept. They are not upfront about how much time they require you to work that you can not bill for, they are not upfront about many aspects of the job. From a clinical perspective, the paperwork looks good, but the ability to do good solid clinical work simply does not exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire clinicans for upper management.

    Pros

    The kids are wonderful to work with and you end up building a relationship with the kids and families

    Cons

    Many times clients cancel without notice and you drive to their homes really for nothing. They say that you can get more hours but they don't stay true to their words.

    Poor excuse for a company who claims to provide quality intensive ABA services to children.

    I worked at Butterfly Effects as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you are looking for a job providing ABA services to children diagnosed with autism and have little to no experience this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Management is focused on the bottom line. The majority of sales people in the main office are motivated by the almighty dollar. This company lacks the integrity and clinical oversight to effectively service their clients. During the recruiting process many families do not ask questions and assume this company is providing quality ABA services.
    The cases presented to me were a mess and my immediate supervisor was absolutely useless. When I presented various scenarios regarding clients she failed to provide any constructive feedback or ideas. I could not help but question her clinical judgement and experience. My weekly supervision meeting consisted of her asking How is it going? with no support to address the issues.
    Client's programs lacked proper clinical development and implementation procedures. There are no quality control procedures in place. Staff is not effectively trained in ABA methods. The majority of cases I received lacked any form of valid or reliable data collection. When I questioned staff about this they said they had no idea and/or referred me to management. Management apparently didn't have a clue. They were too busy counting their money. What data are these people providing to the insurance companies in order to complete their reports? Do you see where I'm going with all of this?
    Every company who claims to provide ABA services should be audited randomly every 6 months. If you're doing the right thing you don't have to panic (I've witnessed this) to ensure everything meets quality assurance/fidelity procedures.
    I consider this type of service behavior respite and/or babysitting.Butterly Effects makes a significant amount of money claiming to provide intensive ABA services to children diagnosed with autism and other developmental disorders. This is simply not the case.
    I noted the outlook for this company will remain the same unless someone decides to do something and change it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire professionally trained clinicians to manage your company. Your management team consists of sales people who recruit clients but have minimal experience working with the population you serve. We all understand a business has to profit but this should not impact the quality of services you provide to children and their families. You claim to be one of the top ABA service providers but fail to disclose any evidence to support this. Take some of the money you used to decorate your new headquarters and redistribute it to your employees.
