    I have been working at HBIC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Supportive administration, great people who always have your back and this job is incredibly rewarding.

    Cons

    Can be a bit stressful at times, but so much support makes it easy to deal with

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great job and do more fundraising to pay your employees a bit more.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at HBIC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great students who, with some effort, make great strides.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. They think they know everything about special education and they actually have no clue.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to school and take some leadership classes. You’re not helping your student and especially not your staff

    I worked at HBIC part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some of the staff are really great people who have your back. Getting the opportunity to connect with some really special students.

    Cons

    Due to the severity of student behavior it can be an incredibly unsafe environment. There are safety precautions but even that doesn’t feel like enough. On top of that, there are way too many staff and students crammed into one tiny classroom. I can’t speak for every teacher there, but the teacher I worked with was incredibly passive aggressive and made the job that much more stressful.

    Very rewarding and you get to learn a LOT!

    I have been working at HBIC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The staff and faculty are all very supportive! The students is what makes this place special. It's a great entry level position to gain experience with students with moderate to severe disabilities if interested in the field of special education.

    Cons

    No opportunities for raises or salary growth (Capped off)

    Advice to Management

    Give raises to high performance reviews to staff members. I believe the turn over rate wouldn't be so high if the staff felt they were working for an incentive.

    I have been working at HBIC

    Pros

    You feel good about the work you are doing and the kids you work with are great! You get to know all of your coworkers.

    Cons

    You get to know all of your coworkers....and thus if there is someone you dont gel with then there is no escaping.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work on being proactive about hiring people who care about the work being done and the wellbeing of the kids.
