    I have been working at Comfort The Center For Autism full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great clients, Caring culture, nice facility, always provide extra things for staff, free RBT training, scholarship program for Masters, responsive and team - oriented. Emphasize very best ABA practices, extremely qualified clinical leadership, diversity of staff and clients is valued. Extra training every Friday. more paid holidays than normal. 3 BCBAs and one BCaBA -strong clinical knowledge to benefit clients, good relations with families.

    Cons

    need more staff and sometimes the high expectations and high ABA standards can be too much for some people

    I worked at Comfort The Center For Autism full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The other Behavioral Therapists and children. The Behavioral therapists work as a team to work through behaviors while the BCBA's are not present.

    Cons

    A non-caring culture, dilapidated facility, does not provide extra things for staff, "free" RBT training (there is a catch), a scholarship program for Masters (they'll help pay for your schooling but you are locked in for years with no escape) , the BCBA's are non-responsive and have power/control issues. Do not provide legal ABA practices, unqualified clinical leadership with major power problems (micromanagement), the paid holidays are not actually paid (they manipulate the policy and procedures manual to fit their needs). Mentions to parents that the kids are served Halal food (they are not served Halal food). The owner is in on the company to fill his wallet (he doesn't know the children or staff names).

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Comfort The Center For Autism full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The children and other behavior therapists.

    Cons

    During interview, they said I could get supervision hours for grad school. Once I started, there was not a licensed staff to even get supervision hours from - all lies to get you to join because of the high turn over rate. Toxic work environment, you will want to be on the look out for a new job ASAP. Time off/PTO requests are increasingly difficult to obtain. Management does not respect you as an employee. There is constant passive aggressive behavior from management. Trust me when I say there are better clinics to work for and will pay better. It is just not worth it.

    Pros

    Great group of therapist, amazing kids

    Cons

    Manipulative CEO and supervisors. Supervisors are constantly micromanaging staff, using ABA to manipulate staff, have power struggle issues, talking down at therapist and are not open to constructive criticism. Unfair pay distribution. Constant change of policy whenever convenient to benefit the owner. PTO- essentially does not exist since it’s always being denied. If staff calls in sick, supervisors are passive aggressive about it by giving staff a hard schedule. Constant talks about being ethical by admin but BCBAs do not follow ABA principles and owner is constantly finding loopholes to manipulate staff and to pocket more money. Owner and supervisors have no appreciation for staff who have dedicated their time to the center. In the span of 1 month, 4 therapist have quit/walked out.

    I have been working at Comfort The Center For Autism full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Close-knit group of individuals working towards the same goals, always interested in the children's benefits. Fun with coworkers and with the clients. Competitive pay Culturally competent Paid holidays Goal-oriented Promotional opportunities Pay increases PTO accrual

    Cons

    Employee satisfaction with management is lower than it should be due to a bad taste some have from experiences that happened before the current management team stepped in. 401K does not currently have a match program No health insurance benefits

    I worked at Comfort The Center For Autism full-time

    Pros

    The children are the only pro.

    Cons

    No training for new staff. Staff members were not nice/welcoming to new people and were often times rude to the children. This center has no idea how to implement ABA techniques and it is clear by the way everything is run. No one runs programs or sessions appropriately and more often than not therapists are sitting around and/or on their phones during the session. I often saw therapists eating food during therapy times as well. People choosing programs have no idea what they are doing, parents are not required to be involved in anyway, no one focuses on toileting or working on programs that truly matter. TINY spaces, little to no equipment/toys/stimuli. The kids are in tiny cubicles basically all day and are not being taught anything functional.
