    I worked at California Psychcare part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Really do their best to work with your desired availability/wages if you're not afraid to speak up about them. Take their jobs very seriously and hope you do too!

    Cons

    Overall just a difficult job to have. Supervisors are incredibly overworked and you hear the brunt of parent's complaints without being able to do much about it. On top of the stress of the job itself and being pretty self-guided and having to make on the fly decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more supervisors, don't overwork them! It affects everyone else.

    I worked at California Psychcare part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Getting to know the families
    Rewarding experience
    Flexible schedule

    Cons

    Too much driving around
    Supervisors not around when needed
    Communication between the office, supervisors, direct staff and families can be all over the place.
    Families can cancel at any minute and there goes your hours.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people to work at the office! Don’t overload one person to be in charge of everything that goes on at the office

    Pros

    Learned lots of new things, great experiences working here, flexible hours, great supervisors! Communication is really important, you will be listened to if you speak up.

    Cons

    None I can think of. You do work by yourself with the consumers most of the time but that is to be expected from a therapist at any company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    It was a very fulfilling experience getting to work with Autistic children. The staff was very supportive.

    Pros

    Friendly staff
    Great receptionist
    Ehhhhh first job

    Cons

    Horrible management
    No one in upper management (manager and director) really cares about employees or clients' needs

    Advice to Management

    Call back your clients, answer your emails (rather than Look at it and put the device back down) and respond when your employees get hurt.

    Lots of support, adequate communication, and excellent company culture.

    Pay is moderately competitive, not many benefits, and decent travel.

    Find more ways to encourage participation, but don't force it. Perhaps have bi-monthly training from time-to-time.
