    I worked at YAI National Institute full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Options for overtime, good learning experience, lots of training opportunities to learn a variety of skills on company time such as CPR/First aid, AMAP, defensive driving, and bare-minimum ABA standards, free/affordable benefits

    Cons

    People in higher positions who shouldn't be there (based on popularity contest standards), higher up staff ignorant to actual ABA practices making the goals set for adults impractical, unsuccessful, and unappealing to the individual (especially true for BIS staff), terrible pay for the amount of work.

    Advice to Management

    Hire staff based on professionalism not based on a need for coverage, this way pay can equate to the job and promotions can be based on potential for improvement rather than social standards set by unqualified supervision.
