    I have been working at Institute for Applied Behavior Analysis full-time

    Pros

    Amazing core values & philosophy. Many extremely long term employees (5, 10, 15, 20+ years)! Flexible schedules within variety of departments. Great benefits. Amazing team members who all have the same goal of helping the people we serve!

    Cons

    Still very paper based. State funding rates need to increase so pay rates for employees can increase. Challenging to find number and caliber of employees needed to support the population we serve.
