      Inspiring Results & Supportive Team

      Pros

      I started as a clinician RIGHT before the center shut-down, due to COVID. Although it was a hectic time to start a job, the company already had a successful online platform to transition to. Additionally, all of our resources were quickly transferred to an online platform. I joined the team after being a classroom teacher and can honestly say I am amazed by the teamwork and collaboration. In former work environments, resources were scarce and everyone was always stressed out. At Lindamood-Bell, I am smiling constantly and laugh every day. Above all, our programming truly works. I have taught other reading support programs that never quite met the needs of every student. At Lindamood-Bell, there are supports in place to monitor and adjust student plans as needed. I just can't say enough about how great this company is.

      Cons

      Although the starting pay is a bit low for someone with an advanced degree, there have been opportunities for raises regularly.

      Enjoyable Job, but maybe not long-term career.

      Pros

      Working 1 on 1 with most students allows you to build relationships and give attention that would not otherwise be possible in a classroom setting. Everyone hired is so peppy and nice. Staff tends to be very supportive and encouraging. Very willing to work around your schedule. Weekdays only. You don't take work home with you (if you're a clinician that is).

      Cons

      Very little opportunity for advancement. Apparently quite a few clinicians that have been promoted to consultant don't stick around for too long due to having to deal with stress from management and constantly being available for parents of students. Despite the supportive work environment, the low rate of pay and the tendency to hire people on a seasonal or temporary basis alone tends to create a revolving door of employees. Hours can be unreliable. The low pay is absolutely insulting considering what other teaching jobs will pay. The company takes advantage of college students and fresh graduates and pays them nickels on the dollar for a few months before they inevitably leave on to something better. It is a business model built on cycling through teachers.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      2 week training with pay Higher than minimum wage pay Potential for benefits Great opportunity to gain experience working with kids 1 hour lunch Clinicians have good rapport Great opportunity to bond with students Academy focuses on guided lessons of McGraw-Hill online curriculum software Research backed program that often really works Can be very rewarding Great stepping stone to other jobs in education and tutoring Fast moving environment Promote from within Discount offered for services for family

      Cons

      Disorganized Lack of support from management on student issues and professional growth and development. Can have difficulty making sure a break is provided, occasionally resulting in missed breaks. While there is a missed break form, it is not widely advertised and discouraged. Constantly changing schedule, often abruptly Constantly short-staffed You will work over forty hours a week It's teaching in a school and reading intervention program for kids with disabilities without the supports and resources of an actual school Often takes students above it's capabilities to support and manage High staff turnover Difficult call-out policy with no extra staff built in the schedule for protection. Days with staff call-outs are hectic and difficult with stretched-thin staff. Few promotions available and with little support during those transitions Most staff does not have other education experience (specifically lacking in prior special ed experience) Mismanaged with managers having no or limited previous experience Very sterile feeling Exhausting

      Missed opportunity

      Pros

      Most of the kids are amazing and working with them one on one is very rewarding. The company provides a 2 week training when you are hired which is paid, but after that there are no real opportunities for growth.

      Cons

      The company charges families almost $200 dollars an hour while the tutor is making less than $20 an hour. I’m unsure how that makes sense. Very disappointing. If the company paid their employees what they are worth they wouldnt have such a high turnover rate.

      The company is great. Some of the managers are real problems.

      Pros

      I genuinely love Lindamood-Bell as a company. They care so much about the students that they help. I've seen other reviews say that they only see students as dollar signs and that's just not true. The company is research validated, and they truly know what they're doing.

      Cons

      Some managers are so desperate to find problems with others that they make things up. I'm just saying, if a manager is firing more than one person in a short period of time, maybe the staff isn't the problem. Something to look into. Mass firings shouldn't be a common thing for any location. It's not even end of seasonal work, it's this is the second mass firing in the same location in a 12 month period.

      Great place to work

      Pros

      Management is supportive and consultants were always responsive to my assessments of students, as well as troubleshooting needs (academic and behavioral). They do their best to create a sense of community through shared experiences, such as lunches and celebrations. Everyone is there for the right reasons and put the needs of students first,

      Cons

      Can get overwhelming given the pace of instruction. Some students have special needs that are not specified, but become immediately apparent when working with a student. I assume this has more to do with HIPAA laws than anything else, but it would be helpful for clinicians to have more strategies in their toolbelt to work with special populations.
