    I worked at The Shape of Behavior full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, working in the psych field.

    Cons

    Honestly it was one of the most stressful jobs I have ever had. I had kids run around the room, punch me, kick me, scratch me, and throw poop at me and scratch me with his poopy fingernails because you are NOT allowed to react. Sometimes this would happen for five minutes. Sometimes three hours. It was pure torture standing there and having to control body language while getting bit really hard. The BCBA is super strict and if you slip up once you get a verbal warning, the next time a write up. It really was a stressdul job. And you are NOT allowed to deal with emotions. Its always behavioral. So if these kids are throwing tantrums because they say they are frustrated, we cannot communicate with them or give them talk therapy. It is pure behavioral therapy with no counsoling. Honestly the worst side of psychology I have ever seen. Even psychoanalyst are better than behavioralist. Psychology is about emotions, what goes on in the mind. Not just good/bad behaviors. They dont explore the real reason why they are doing it. They just assume its because you take stuff away from kids, that they throw a fit. There is very little compassion or love at this job.

    I have been working at The Shape of Behavior full-time

    Pros

    Great CEO, great staff, amazing patients, a lot of benefits

    Cons

    physically draining at time, but changing the lives of the children.

    Advice to Management

    The Shape of Behavior is a great place to work. Everyone works hard everyday for the children. The leadership team is very helpful with whatever you need. Any time I have spoken to corporate they are very friendly and helpful. I love my job and making the children and families lives a little better each day.

    Onsite management is great. Corporate needs to consider communicating possible changes to staff, shed some hope on pay raises and bonuses.
