    Pros

    Great company.You are given as many hours as you'd like, so I had no problem getting a full-time position. They give you extensive training in ABA, mileage reimbursement, and you get your full hourly pay for drive time. A lot of companies in this field don't do that. This is a perfect place to start in this field because you get hands on experience. There are a lot of opportunities to move up in this field.

    Cons

    Not many. The company as a whole is great. A major con in this field would be that there are always a lot of client cancellations with in-home therapy. Especially during summer.

    Advice to Management

    Management supports you and makes sure that everyone is on the same page. They are constantly checking in and making sure you understand what is asked of you, and clarify any questions.

    Pros

    Rewarding work, convenient hours for those working and going to school simultaneously, same pay for administrative tasks done at home, offer 20% off a masters at national university and educational reimbursement pay

    Cons

    High energy job, BIs tend to be disregarded, parents are usually great but because ESSC requires a co-pay for each session they have high expectations

    Advice to Management

    Respond quickly to BIs having issues with their working environment (allergies to animals, 40 minute drives from home, etc.)

    Pros

    You can pretty much get as many hours as you need as long as you are a valued employee and do your work well.

    Cons

    The pay isn't remarkable and getting a day off when you're sick or need a personal is a huge challenge.
