    Former Employee - Clinician 

    I worked at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, supportive management, good pay, and great experience working with kids!

    Cons

    Sometimes the schedule can be a bit hectic or unpredictable (like student changes at the last minute before a session), but my center was very good about trying to be supportive if this was happening.

    I worked at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Days are busy, not a lot of downtime so time goes by fast. The students were often fun to work with as well.

    Cons

    No major complaints, pay was fair. Occasionally you have to work with difficult students, but managers are usually easy to access if help is needed

    I have been working at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - the programs are effective, moreso than Orton-Gillingham, FAST, iReady, Kumon and other popular reading and math programs out there. - the customer service for families attending is phenomenal. - co-workers are intelligent, fantastic people who love helping students. Easy to meet lifelong friends working here.

    Cons

    Employees with children do not last long in Lindamood-Bell, no matter their talent. Hourly employees (all staff save 2-3 employees in each branch) are required to have open availability and work no other jobs, but branches are not obligated to fill their schedules. Hours can vary drastically, with 40+ hours a week at peak times, down to 25 or below when the center is slow. I once asked my manager for more consistent hours, to which she responded “you just called off the other day- isn’t it a little ironic to ask for more hours?” As my manager knew, I had called off to care for a sick child. Apparently children are only valued when they’re paying an hourly rate. The most disheartening turn of events I have seen, however, has been corporate’s approach to Covid-19. Despite marketing their image as a school, Lindamood-Bell has decided to open its doors to students rather than keep instruction exclusively online. Southern states with high infection rates were some of the first to open, and masks were not made mandatory until this week. We work one-on-one with students, using materials that have largely been digitized- the only legitimate argument for working in-center is technical issues that could arise on the tutor’s end. Employee oversight and accommodating parents who wish to send their kids in person are more likely the driving forces. Paired with a slew of hushed layoffs and demotions, this change has been detrimental to employee morale, a problem HR has only worsened with curt responses and gaslighting.

    Pros

    The kids are amazing. My direct supervisors are good, too.

    Cons

    The people who run this company at the corporate level are some of the greediest out there. You're really going to charge families $125 an hour and pay your teachers $16 an hour? Where's the rest going? Don't tell me it's to those dumb, white, "company policy" couches in every center. It's either in the CEO's pocket or directly feeding back into her plan for world domination (why are you opening new international centers during a global pandemic?). The micromanagement is overwhelming. The unannounced, nitpicky "mentors" coming into sessions on a very frequent basis to watch me teach make me feel like I'm on Big Brother, not employed as a teacher. I feel like some people who work here don't put in that much effort, and while it seems corporate thinks that's because they aren't whipped into perfect form, it's probably because they're emotionally occupied by looking for a better job.

    Pros

    Entry level education summer job

    Cons

    Another consideration is that their hiring is through silkroad--a website that was i involved in the dark web. Despite my numerous attempts to delete from my computer and phone, it repopulates in my contacts.
