    No training
    No communication

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying and stop gossiping
    Listen and hear out staff
    Stop having double standards
    More training
    Stop doing clinical work if your only supposed to be doing operational work
    Stop engaging in inappropriate behavior with employees
    Don't be afraid to say no if you disagree with something
    Praise staff more; make us feel like you appreciate us vs.. you want to just give extra money on a gift card that gets taxed!
    The list goes on and on.....

    I worked at May Institute full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Experience in ABA, tuition reimbursement, benefits, great culture/coworkers.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible compared to public schools and it is nearly impossible to enter data/plan/write IEP's, etc AND teach students/manage behaviors. I felt we were frequently under staffed.

    Advice to Management

    More staff in classrooms to allow a planning block and higher pay.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and the kids are awesome.

    Cons

    Pros

    The children are the best part of job!

    Cons

    very poor pay, back stabbing, awful human resource department. The woman running the department is a rude, and ignorant person. No support from management, no support on the job. Unfair schedules, same people doing all the hard work, and caring for the hardest children. Same people have the easy kids, and schedule over and over.

    Advice to Management

    get fair leaders, treat teachers fair and equal, and give them support!
