    I worked at RCS Learning Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Clients are wonderful. Company offers discounted ABA Master's.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment. Caseload/hours/driving distances are ridiculous, no lunch break ever. HR/upper management only pretends to be understanding. Supervisors are dishonest. BTs are overworked and burnt out. Employees pretend to be welcoming and that they want you to succeed. In reality, everyone is looking for opportunities to throw someone under the bus so they can seem vigilant to their higher-ups.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating BTs like they're disposable second class citizens. Families want caring, long term providers-- not a revolving door of those who just kill time and wait for their check.

    I worked at RCS Learning Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only pro of this company is that the students are wonderful. Nothing else I can share that is good about this place.

    Cons

    Terrible communication, as the communication lines are totally shot! You have over 19 supervisors and when you contact the “right” one about an issue they will tell you to go and talk to this person and that person! You will never get a solution to your problem or an answer to your question. They will misinform you during your interview process and once in the field of consulting they will have you doing the complete opposite of what they originally said the job entailed. They will tell you that you’ll be “regionalized” but will then have you driving all over the state; not to mention you only get .10 cents per mile. They don’t seem to care about the wear and tear on your transportation.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about what your employees endure when consulting and the scheduling department should regionalize more and stay true to their word. Treat your employees with more respect.

    Pros

    The students are amazing and the people you work the floor with will become some of your best friends.

    Cons

    Admin is very condescending, growth within the company is difficult due to favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Try providing staff with praise and reinforcement instead of just finding things to correct/pick on.

    I worked at RCS Learning Center full-time

    Pros

    Advancement within company seems common.

    Cons

    Low pay, and 10 cents per mile in mileage reimbursement. Center itself needs a major cleaning. Carpets very dirty and old building.

    Pros

    Great for new BCBA's or if you're just out of grad school and do not have a lot of experience. Lot of support from everyone in the office!

    Cons

    Scheduling - difficult because you are still working directly with clients and providing supervision.

    I worked at RCS Learning Center full-time

    Pros

    The kids are absolutely awesome and the PTO and benefits are great.

    Cons

    First of all, the training does nothing to help you with real world experience on the floor. No one sat with me to go over each child’s lesson plan, so I was teaching myself as I went. Because of this, during weekly meetings I would get in trouble because I was running something incorrectly. I’m a perfectionist, so I’d ask questions constantly and feel very degraded when given an answer.

    My group was also really mean to me. They would constantly leave me out of conversations and events and did not make me feel welcome at all. Oh also, if you quit before six months they take $300 out of your paycheck for RBT training (bogus). I love ABA, but I dreaded going to work everyday because of how I was treated by staff.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your staff is polite and welcoming to new staff. Also, you need to up the training.
