    Pros

    If you are willing to work hard and do a good job, you will advance quickly through the compant. Very supportive and very rewarding work.

    Cons

    Some of the employees can tend to be slightly clique-y. If you can stay out of the drama, you can avoid this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management and leadership at CVAP is for the most part excellent. THe only suggestion I would have is to not always assume your employees are wrong when an issue occurs.

    Pros

    great learning opportunity. good experience for those who want to start a career in anything child development/psychology related. it is a tough job but rewarding.

    Cons

    the pay is miserable for the type of work that you're doing. people are clique-y & constantly gossip about everyone. watch ur backs newbies!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop assuming you know it all. when you haven't seen a client in 2 weeks and you come in as a know-it-all no one likes that. you mess up the therapy. sometimes the tutors have better rapport with the clients than you because they spend hours HOURS per day with these kids. be open to suggestions from your staff. when handing out infractions provide immediate feedback. don't wait 2-3 weeks to send an infraction for something that happened today. be more friendly with your staff. SMILE more. seriously, SMILE MORE. also, parents talk about the bad supervisors so you should probably build good rapport with the clients parents because they often ask how to get rid of you.

    Pros

    You learn a lot every day, the company actually stands for something and it's a wonderful thing to work for

    Cons

    Reporting mileage (and receiving infractions if you don't turn it on time), late lunches, having to execute behavior plans that you don't always agree with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the supervisors should have a more hands on time with the children, it really felt at times like the tutors had more experienced with the kids and had better judgement about them but the supervisors would go in and change things unnecessarily or not do anything at all.
