    Pros

    They take safety incredibly seriously. I live in Michigan where the polar vortex is happening. Behavior Frontiers put our safety first and allowed us to cancel sessions in order to keep our staff and clients safe. It’s amazing not having to worry about balancing my safety and my job. They care about their employees beyond anything else I’ve seen before!

    Cons

    I can’t think of anything that I don’t love about the company. If there is a policy that needs writing or adjustment, they do it so quickly in order to make things as smooth as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work! I love it here.

    If they had a center it would be top quality.

    I worked at Behavior Frontiers part-time

    Pros

    - They provided thorough (and paid) training which was amazing and prepared me for solo work with clients
    - They had a lot of nice perks like an employee incentive program and company socials
    - The supervisors were generally supportive and available to answer questions/concerns
    - There were incredible opportunities for advancement if you were interested in pursuing a life-long career in ABA (ex: discounts on graduate programs)
    - Of course the kids were great :)

    Cons

    The biggest downside was the hours. I feel like I wasn't given an accurate representation of the schedule and hours I should expect upon hire. I went in hoping to make a livable wage but even with a second job, I couldn't afford my bills. Even if I had been able to achieve "full-time" hours, they consider 30 hours full-time which is crazy considering most companies consider 40 hours full-time. And while the hourly rate for direct behavior therapy was competitive, that was only a fraction of my working hours as I had to spend hours and hours in the car every week. Drive time was paid at a different rate (minimum wage) so between that and the inconsistency of hours, it was just not worth it. For example, if one of your clients was gone all week, it was rare to get those hours made up and if they were, it was in the office which again is paid at a much lower hourly rate. All in all, if this is a supplementary income for you, great, this job will work well for you and I think you will enjoy the company but if you plan on making this your primary source of income, its almost impossible to get by. I was a newbie to the industry so maybe this is the nature of private, in-home ABA...but I just wish they would have given me a more realistic picture of the work before offering me a position.

  5. "Good company to work for."

    I worked at Behavior Frontiers part-time

    Pros

    I had great coworkers, and I was well supported by my supervisors. The training was effective, I had great experiences with my clients; and the company socials were a great way to keep in touch with your colleagues.

    Cons

    If you work part time as a behavior instructor, the nature of the industry means that your hours can fluctuate from week to week. Not much the company can do about this, just something to be aware of.

    * Salary!
    * Great support from my Assistant Clinical Director.
    * Supervisors and Case Managers all support each other and work as a team.
    * Company values your hard work and dedication.
    * Organized company. (Billing, intake, scheduling all have their own departments)

    * On-going trainings for managers and BCBAs.
    * Provide CEU's!
    * Company has very clear expectations and policies.

    Cons

    * Sometimes, things get very hectic with reports, administrative work and caseload duties all at once... leading to bringing work home and working very late nights.

    Advice to Management

    I think management is doing a great job at keeping their employees motivated and happy in their work environment.

    I have been working at Behavior Frontiers part-time

    Pros

    Kiddos are sweet and fun, case managers are easy to talk to,

    Cons

    Full time is impossible and you will have to constantly ask for more hours, a lot of driving only to work two hours in a day. Scheduling is difficult to deal with, a ton of cancellations and scheduling does nothing to replace or make up lost hours.

    Advice to Management

    Need more hours and consistent schedule

    Good incentives, friendly work environment, love working with kids

    Cons

    No enough hours, hard to get more clients, waiting on upper management for more jobs

    Advice to Management

    this is part of the job, but cancellations are hard on someone working so little hours for not that much pay... Should have some kind of monetary fix for no shows or cancellations
