    I worked at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes part-time

    Pros

    Great training and good work atmosphere made for an excellent work environment.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of the business scheduling was a little inconsistent as it depended on amount of work available, and as it was only for the summer I wish there could have been more work with them

    Pros

    Get to see lots of great progress for students. Coworkers are very nice.

    Cons

    Incredibly low pay considering what parents pay. Inconsistent schedule. Rude corporate management. Honestly, don't work here if you can avoid it.

    Advice to Management

    Pay workers more. Stop trying to cut worker hours. Change creepy aspects of culture.


  3. Only good for a summer job as a Clinician.

    I worked at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Positive environment for lower level staff and great entry level work for college students who need a summer job.

    Cons

    The company does not care about employees, parents are charged $100+/hr while staff pay is only $12/hr, jobs go to family members of higher-ups, and management does not support staff's needs.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay, treat employees like human beings, and bring the focus back to the magic of learning instead of making a sale.

    I worked at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with the kids! This job acts as a great boot camp for anyone interested in an educational and/or therapeutic field. I would recommend seasonal (i.e., summer) employment only, for college students or recent graduates.

    Cons

    A toxic, passive-aggressive culture is passed down through the ranks. The schedule in the off-season is unpredictable. Pay/benefits are not appropriate. Employee satisfaction is perhaps the company's lowest priority.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. There is huge turnover at every LBLP location I have worked at and/or been to, which negatively impacts everything from the quality of the students' instruction to the ability of employees to work effectively as a team. If employees felt respected, valued, and safe, this would not be the case.

    I worked at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes part-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are all great to work with. The students are great and many of them have learning difficulties or disabilities. It is great to see the students make progress with the systems Lindamood-Bell has in place.

    Cons

    Pay is low. It may be difficult to move up in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Seek more to promote cllinicians

    I worked at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes full-time

    Pros

    decent pay, pretty easy work if you like children, good location near the metro, office was in a great building, interesting clients

    Cons

    poor management, staff break room was eliminated during the summer to fit more student desks, no help for instructors with extremely difficult students

    Advice to Management

    Need to be much more involved in the work of the Instructors. Many more Bx intervention techniques need to be learned. I had one horrific experience where I was instructed to stay alone in a room with a child blocking the door so he could not escape while he threatened me in various ways. Management just told me to continue until my hour was over..

    Pros

    Working with children is incredibly rewarding Good summer job for college students

    Cons

    INCREDIBLY low pay. I have a Masters Degree and I had to fight my way up from $15/hr. They've recently increased rates but it doesn't come close to compensating for the amount of stress and energy that the job requires. Only a select few people are given full time non-salaried jobs (2-3 per center) and over summer they are the staff who are expected to just "get it done" while given NO support. The center directors are constantly looking for ways to cut costs & hours in order to get a bonus and the Consultants and Clinicians have to do all the work and pick up all the slack. Management is a joke and the company promotes those who play the corporate game or have a pretty face. The go-to response to any employee grievance is that there is no solution and that decisions are made "based on center needs".

    Advice to Management

    You must increase your pay rate and offer benefits if you want quality staff members. All the employees working in the corporate headquarters in SLO should see what it's really like to work in a center without so much visibility.
