Reviews/touch base meetings Are you honest in those? Is there any benefit in giving honest feedback in these? I loved my job ..you know the saying "Love the work you do and you'll never work a day in your life" then I got moved. I find frustration in the disorganization of my current location. Doctors stall and discharge late with no regard for the chaos that causes. And...I still feel super salty about my move....and I can't help it.

Behavior Frontiers really works with your schedule and availability. I've never had a problem changing my availability or being scheduled outside of my normal hours without being asked first. I have also never had a problem requesting time off and getting it approved. My supervisors are great and offer as much support as needed with clients and future professional goals. I would also like to add, after speaking with others at different companies, our training and field training before starting with clients does not leave you feeling unprepared. Nervous or anxious? Sure, but not unprepared.
Working part-time, one of the only downsides I can think of is if one of my clients cancel and there are no fill-in sessions available, I do not get paid for the hours missed.1Behavior Frontiers Response2mo

Flexible schedule Reasonable billable requirement (25/week) No direct required for BCBAs
Large region so drive time and mileage can be extensive

understanding if you cancel sessions here and there, especially if you are good at what you do,
Overworked, and covid ruined the whole system. Case managers stayed home while the real workers had to go into homes and continue session. The BT's had to use their own devices to have their case manager watch from the comfort of their own home.

Good pay & ability to help others.
This company breathes micromanagement. They do not value your work and this is just a giant corporation that works as a machine. Get ready to be burnt out and have mounds of ridiculous admin work on top of a heavy duty caseload. If you miss a summit meeting Helen the CEO sends out a company wide email with the list of names of those who missed assuming the worst when those people were out working supporting clients. Upper management has become so far removed from what direct work actually entails and does not allow BCBA’s independence and creativity.10Behavior Frontiers Response3mo
Please feel free to email me directly or to reach out to your clinical director to have a discussion about how things are going for you, since this will likely lead to a more productive outcome than posting on a public forum. As a founder, CEO, and BCBA, I care greatly about our team and about the service we deliver to our clients. That is why each month, I make it a priority to meet with all of the supervisors and directors so that I can personally speak with all of you and be there to answer your questions. At these clinical summits, we offer you and the other clinicians free CEUs from world-renowned guest speakers. I also take the time to review important company initiatives. At the last summit meeting, we launched our new Behavior Analyst Fellowship program, which will help our behavior technicians and case managers to advance their careers to become BCBAs! I continue to look forward to the time that I am able to spend with our clinical management team each month, in which we are advancing the practice of ABA to improve the progress of our clients! With regard to clinical independence and creativity, our BCBAs are given the ability to select their assessment methods, curriculum lessons, parent training methods, BIP interventions, etc. Meanwhile, we strive to reduce administrative tasks by providing centralized recruitment, scheduling, and intake departments, as well as customized software solutions. For example, next month at our clinical summit, we will be discussing the launch of our progress report writing feature in PrioraCare, which will greatly reduce the time that our clinicians spend writing progress reports.

They pay pretty good and have a program where you qualify for $1 raise every 6 months.
I'm not usually one to leave negative reviews. I know that as with any job, there are pros and cons and every employee is going to have a different experience. That being said, the average employee turnover rate is about 6-9 months. I worked there for a little over a year and was told by other employees that that was "a long time". This is a horrible company that clearly prioritizes profit over people. I went 6 months without the necessary training needed for one of my extremely aggressive clients, even after constant nagging and emails. You have to work 30 hours to be considered full time, but if a client cancels that takes away your hours, and you don't get paid for cancelations either. I was working 30 hours a week, two of my clients canceled, meaning I went under 30 hours. If you go under 30 hours a week 4 times within a 6 month period, you lose your full time benefits. My offer letter said my salary would be $47,000, I ended up making $27,000 that year. There's a lot more I could say, but I'm afraid I would be too identifiable. Just trust me, don't work here.7

People who stay are great people.
People leave because of compensation and the hours is rough. Work at mornings and late afternoons with no work in between...

Pay raise every 3 months. Will get promoted and supported if you show willingness to learn more. Company will support your educational goals with partnership programs. Good benefits
Having clients cancel or non consistent clients which impacts your pay. Scheduling department is difficult to get into contact with sometimes.

The supervisors have been caring and extremely helpful throughout my time at Behavior Frontiers. At a certain point, I got burnt out, and luckily, my supervisors were quite understanding. They let me change my previous schedule to a more suitable one, and since then, I have kept that same schedule. Another pro, is that the drive time between clients is paid for by the company, and every 3 months you get a $1 raise in your hourly pay.
Clients will cancel sessions often and at times for weeks leaving some BT's without work. Schedulers are often switched and some are not great about answering clients or BT's messages.2

There are no pros to this job. very bad
The company will use you for your education and put a toll on your vehicle. They will fire you after training because the trainers are competing with you, the new guy, for the clients; clients are screaming, violent kids and the houses are very unhygienic. You will not get money for gas, and the people training you will fail you and act really fake/toxic2
