    Pros

    Good team support network, thorough training, quality care, understanding management and staff team approach.

    Former Employee - Applied Behavior Analysis Therapist in Meriden, CT
    Former Employee - Applied Behavior Analysis Therapist in Meriden, CT

    I worked at Institute of Professional Practice full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Extensive training in restraint and applied behavior analysis techniques, working one on one with an autistic child and being able to develop a rapport with that child.

    Cons

    No bathroom breaks unless the child is left with another therapist, having to keep records of progress manually instead of entering it into a computer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The graphs should be entered using a computer system instead of having to do it manually. One mistake can set off the entire book and if it's not noticed right away then any reports developed for that child could be completely wrong.

    Pros

    - Decent Health insurance
    - Independence in daily activities

    Cons

    - Some managers and employees can get away with anything depending on who they know
    - Don't follow their own policies
    - Turn a blind eye in some cases to bad situations
    - Mediocre pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually listen to your employees. Don't take everything the manager says at face value. Some of the managers are not good people and shouldn't be in this field. Don't fire people for no reason and leave the houses completely short staffed. Don't let employee's that have been here for 10+ years get away with everything including terrorizing the newbies. If you hear allegations of abuse/neglect--investigate it like you are suppose to.

    It's an ok company to start with, but I would not stay here for an extended period of time.

    I have been working at Institute of Professional Practice

    Pros

    A rewarding company and a rewarding job. I am always well respected by my superiors, and I frequently receive feedback on my performance. Since it's a helping profession, all of the employees are friendly and a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    The company is pretty disorganized, and will send you to another school last minute if your primary child is absent. Also, they always seem to be understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have none.
