    I worked at Firefly Autism House full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Devotion to the science of behavior, Benefits, Center Based is great for those who want to stay in one place, Home based services are available for those who want to make their own schedule (to a degree... you have more work in the evenings usually especially starting out, as is the case with all service providers who aren't purely center based since this is when kids are not in school), Leadership is INCREDIBLY devoted and skilled. Competitive pay with great benefits of being a highly respected and well established member of the Denver Autism community. Great opportunities to get supervision in many ways (meetings after work, BCBA supervision within work, etc.) Flexibility with scheduling if you choose home based, that flexibility is of course not there if you choose center, hours were 8 to 4(ish... lots of opportunities to communicate were only available after work due to high paced environment middle management was dealing with) when I was there.

    Cons

    Communication with a growing organization can be difficult and this is the case at Firefly sometimes.

    I have been working at Firefly Autism House full-time

    Pros

    Employees are friendly and positive; company provides iPads for "easy" data collection and analysis; great playground area for clients both younger and older; high regard for client safety; can bring dogs to work on days when clients aren't present

    Cons

    Understaffed and overworked management team; supervision, planning, and communication is poor within the company as well as with clients and funding sources; there are very few systems in place to support staff; expectations are often unclear or are not lived up to; training is often lacking even for the programming (ESDM) and technology (electronic data collection system) the company brags about (which means it is often utilized inefficiently if not ineffectively; very little unity among the different but related programs and activities. The executive director asks a lot of employees (volunteering for fundraising, acceptance of huge changes effective immediately without discussion, full availability when he wants/needs you) without giving much in return (aside from "thanks" that seems insincere)

    Thanks for your review. We are pleased to announce that since the time of this review, we have grown our company significantly, and are adequately staffed and managed to the point that we are moving to a larger facility in the Lakewood area come this summer. We have good communication between managers and employers, provide an awesome work life balance (15 days of sick leave, 11 government holiday closures, on top of many other paid days off), and have also updated our data collection technologies to better align our mission and goals!
