    Thank you for taking time to offer feedback and we are glad you have had a positive experience so far! I am especially glad that our flexible scheduling (including a very flexible time-off policy) and the community of clients to support has been a pro of your work with PBS. I do want to clarify that Student Analysts are offered paid sick time. If you need more information about this please reach out to your Regional Coordinators, Staffing Specialist, or HR!

    I have been working at Positive Behavior Supports full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are a few BCBA/Program Managers that are absolutely amazing, and willing to help you with any questions or concerns. If you know those people, you are supported with at least them. I have only stayed with the company because of those people. The 2 stars are only because of those BCBA/PM

    Cons

    Not always paying right away after billing for a client if there is a mistake with your pay they will wait sometimes up to a month before they pay it out to you quite a few BCBA that violate the BCBA Code of Ethics When a BCBA is reported to Regional Coordinators nothing is done to resolve the problem BCBA are promoted to a higher position even if they were reported to violate the BCBA Code of Ethics Huge lack of BA/RBT's to service clients Clients are not transferred when they should be due to lack of RBT Company is Money orienated and makes decisions based on Money and not the care of the client. Most BCBA's due bare minimum of work.

    I worked at Positive Behavior Supports part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free CEU opportunities for BCBA and BCaBA

    Cons

    -PBS has shady upper management and admin. They engage in ethically and legally questionable behavior. You don't get paid for all of your work. They are not always honest with insurance companies, such as intentionally backdating things to incorrect dates. They are even suspended by the franchise tax board in CA, which is public information on the secretary of state website. -PBS has poor communication, including lack of communication, slow communication, miscommunication, and even contradictory communication from some upper management and admin. -PBS could provide better oversight and training when people are new to a position. -PBS requires you to use Sharepoint, which is slow and doesn't work well. -PBS takes a long time to give you cases, without giving you a heads up at the time of hire that you may be waiting for months.

    I have been working at Positive Behavior Supports part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexibility with scheduling client sessions. Tuition reduction if you enroll in a masters program with a partner university. Quarterly bonus for those billing 20+ hours weekly as well as the ability to bill for drive time in between sessions. Training is provided to take the RBT exam. Increase in pay for becoming an RBT and Student Analysts. Continuous mentorship support especially for those pursuing BCBA status.

    Cons

    Billable hours can be unpredictable so pay amount can be inconsistent. Example someone gets sick, other therapies or families go on vacation. However there is always the option to do make up hours. You can only bill for drive time in between clients and max time is 1 hour. So if you have more than an hour window in between sessions you cannot bill. You can’t bill for the commute from home to your session or for the commute back home. The online portal used to bill and add progress notes has frequent tech issues but getting a little better.

    Thank you for your feedback and I am so glad to hear that the flexibility, tuition benefits, and mentoring / support have been a benefit to you! I am also glad that you have been able to manage your schedule and make up your time with clients if you do experience a cancellation. I do see you are a current employee so please do let me know if you would ever like to have a chat about how we can make your experience at PBS the best it can possibly be!
