    Pros

    CARD is a great place to start out, especially if you are planning on becoming a BCBA. They offer supervision, and the BCBAs I've worked with genuinely care about my future career.

    Cons

    CARD is a pretty big company, so the typical woes of working for a large company often apply, such as blanket policies that may not be beneficial to specific centers or clients.

    I worked at Center for Autism and Related Disorders part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This job was a great place to work right out of college. When hours were great they were great, and when they weren't they weren't. For me home session were a little uncomfortable. I preferred going to the clinic everyday where I had access to other therapists and supervisors foe questions and concerns.

    Cons

    Unsteady hours, If a client cancelled you were just left without those hours. Drive time could become excessive. Hard on your vehicle if you dint have the newest and greatest.

    Pros

    Fantastic if you like working with kids and want hands on clinical experience in the psych field

    The workplace environment and management style will depend from center to center so definitely try to check in with employees wherever you’re applying if you can

    I have been working at Center for Autism and Related Disorders full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The work environment and the kids

    Cons

    Bosses changing and making their own rules, or backing up someone to cover what they are doing wrong. The company only cares about getting as many hours they can from the kids, without taking everyone’s health first priority
