    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...

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Keep in touch with what feedback you're getting from workers; we often don't know what we want, really, but we know we want this tough direct work to be made easier by management being as clear as possible on the expectations. That is improving though.

    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...

    Advice to Management

    Use the principles of behavior analysis within the company; set clear expectations for yourselves, staff, and clients along with (immediate) consequences for desired and undesired behavior; be proactive rather than reactive (don't avoid issues, be honest and forthcoming with clients and employees, and live up to your promises); measure how well the company (and it's employees) are living up to its mission and goals; be...
