A lot of responsibility
Clinician (Former Employee) –  Marin City, CA17 June 2019
The mission and goal to help change lives through differentiated, intensive remediation is a passion that drives the center staff and teachers. Management positions are stressful especially with the sales goals set quarter by quarter. Work-life balance is not achievable by the time someone reaches a management position which can result in high turn over.
Pros
Great co-workers
Cons
Lower pay compared to job expectations

Challenging in a good way
Clinician (Current Employee) –  Birmingham, MI13 June 2019
I think that this job is very rewarding and you see the difference and impact you and the program make on each child. Often can be overwhelming for new hires because the programs and positive encouraging attitudes are hard to keep up with until you gain more experience. Atmosphere of the office and morale is generally high. My supervisors are all dedicated and ambitious and want their staff to succeed and will make sure you have all the tools and resources to do so.

Great Work Environment, No so Great Leadership
Tutor/Mentor (Former Employee) –  Tallahassee, FL5 June 2019
Now this varies based on the region so I am speaking based on the region that FL (Jacksonville) leads.

~Great Students & Curricula
~Work is typically 8 work hours (1hr sessions with each student)
~Usually a positive and supportive work culture (depends on management though as they set the tone)
~Scheduling gets weird if people don't show up since we are 1:1 with students so COME TO WORK lol
~Opportunities for travel
~Worst part was that I felt that the company didn't value me as a person when considering how their management issues would effect me/our students/other staff
~best part is seeing student growth and building relationships with families

Best to keep this as a summer job only
CLINICIAN/MENTOR (Former Employee) –  Rolling Hills Estates, CA29 May 2019
Although it is incredibly fun and rewarding working with the kids and seeing them improve, the complete disconnect between upper management and the clinicians who actually work with the students causes issues.
Pros
Working with kids, making a difference in their lives
Cons
Very low pay compared to the work you do, not much recognition from company on your hard work

Fulfilling Job with Drawbacks
Teacher/Clinician (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FL29 May 2019
The kids are great, but the pace is fast, expectations are unrealistic, and the pay is terrible for the amount of work. The hardest part of the job is communicating with management.

Good place for educators to work during summer
Clinician (Former Employee) –  Westwood, CA28 May 2019
I enjoyed this job a lot. The people were super empathetic, welcoming and understanding, the cons is that occasionally you got cases that were difficult. But the kids are awesome! If you are an introvert you may need to step out of your comfort zone but they do train you and help you out a lot.
Pros
Positive work environment, great co-workers, great kids
Cons
Parking on the west side is difficult, commute is a bit long due to traffic

Good training-- don't plan to stay.long
Clinician (Former Employee) –  Menlo Park, CA27 May 2019
Lindamood-Bell provides good training for working with kids who have comprehension problem or dyslexia that is not caused by a lack of phonemic awareness. It's better training than most teachers have. But the pay is very low, and you're expected to keep your schedule clear just in case they need you. Usually two weeks notice was required to get even a few hours off for a doctor's appointment, but they could change your schedule the day before they wanted you to work. Summers and Christmas they want people to remain available, although they might not call you in. This includes Christmas Eve! I was the only credentialed teacher at my center, and the people directing instruction had no experience outside of LMB. So they only had a few ways to work with students; they used those techniques even when they weren't appropriate. Right now the Seeing Stars program is the most popular. It seems to be effective for students without phonemic awareness problems, but it is a dreadful grind and very abstract. Even so they had kids as young as 5 doing it for four hours a day.
Pros
Good training, nice co-workers, some holiday pay
Cons
Low wages, unrealistic expectations, condescending attitudes towards clinicians, shallow educational knowledge

great place to gain experience - don't stay long term
Associate Center Director (Current Employee) –  NY21 April 2019
The programs work, changing students/parents' lives is very rewarding, and if you are lucky you'll get a pleasant manager as well. However, talented educators and leaders will quickly reach a frustrating ceiling -- at the core, one needs to remember, LBLP is a for-profit corporation. They would prefer to continue with high turn over & high attrition than to properly compensate and appreciate existing staff. When promotions are offered, it is usually out of a desperate need to fill a role and clean up some mess at another location. Excellent stepping stone to work up the ladder and gain experience, but unfortunately not a place to put down roots and have a long-term career.

Very fun for seasonal work, but not an appropriate long-term option
Consultant (Current Employee) –  not willing to share that info15 April 2019
If you are looking for a fun summer job, this place is great. It's a high-energy, positive environment and you see life-changing progress in the students. The corporate culture, however, is actively dishonest and the company is going downhill. Middle management is held in a precarious position between the company changing (their "Academy" product is garbage) and an extremely over-involved CEO.
Pros
fun for the summer, very positive, ongoing mentoring for new hires
Cons
low wage for the amount that is expected of each employee, hours can vary greatly by season

Good Company
Operations & Office Manager (Former Employee) –  Deerfield, IL10 April 2019
It's a good company, I just got a bad boss. The CD in Deerfield, IL was really bad at her job, didn't know what she was doing at any given moment and was always overwhelmed. She made a lot of mistakes and blamed everyone else, lost her temper a lot, really unprofessional. So she didn't treat her staff well and corporate didn't respond to reports of her awful behavior.
Pros
The Company in CA
Cons
Boss in the filed may suck.

The company provides you with very specific training that is required for the job. This includes specific language to be used. Follow the program and watch the students grow.

Working with kids almost makes up for bad environment
Clinician (Former Employee) –  Coral Gables, FL18 February 2019
Not a good job for someone looking to advance within a company or create a career. Better suited for casual employment situations as a part time job for younger people.

Public School Educators Beware
clinician (Former Employee) –  Atlanta4 February 2019
The workplace culture was very elitist. The expectations of management were very high. Employees were expected to know the program in-depth after a two-week training. The training was thorough; however, it did not equip you to work independently as a clinician as was expected immediately after training. Management placed clinicians with students too early in the process and then were hypercritical. Some supervisors were supportive and helpful, but most were condescending. This company may appear to pay well initially for part-time work, but the work pace is intense and demanding with unreasonable expectations. The company does not allow discipline of the clients in any way. I believe in positive reinforcement, but the children were often in charge, running through the building without shoes, eating through the sessions, bringing blankets and personal items, and working under the tables. This company caters to the elite! They charge very high prices and must keep the children entertained and willing to come back. Public school educators on summer vacation, BEWARE! You will know more and have more experience than most of the staff. However, your opinion will not be valued. In my opinion, this job is not for professional educators.

Outstanding environment for entry level educators
Clinician (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZ26 January 2019
Lindamood-Bell is an extraordinary place to work. Tutors, called "clinicians", are given an intense training in the company's proprietary learning techniques, then gain immediate opportunity to put their newfound skills to work in a one-to-one environment with real students.
The work can be very challenging, even overwhelming at first. However, the environment is second to none, and their goal is to put the fun into learning. Weekly costume contests, student celebrations, peer-to-peer recognition and frequent feedback truly make this a delightful place to work.
Pros
Culture, people
Cons
Low wage, no benefits

Clinician (Former Employee) –  Johns Creek, GA12 January 2019
Working at Lindamood Bell was a great learning experience for me, it taught me patience with the students and organizational skills for life. Its training is very informative and their employees are always welcoming and excited for you to succeed, even if you don't feel as if you're getting progress with a client.

This company does not value it's employees. only good if you really love kids, and just need a little pocket change
Clinician (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CA5 November 2018
The pay is extremely low. They pay the clinicians, who are the ones actually working with the kids, a tiny fraction of what they are charging the parents.It's truly shameful.

The technique is interesting to learn, and can be useful if your career is in special ed, or some other related field.

They will work you into the ground all summer, but in the off- season they will only offer a few hours, and act all indignant if your not available to them when they need you.
