Autism Initiatives job reviews

Showing 8 reviews

  • Best thing

    The people we support are great.

    Worst thing

    Co-workers treat other people who aren't in the office politics horribly. Managers are condescending and treat you as-if you are supposed to know everything on the first day. Co-workers struggle to teach newcomers the basics. Everyone (managers, colleagues, and other people within the company) disrespects colleagues who are autistic. The workplace is ageist, racist, and some of the workers deal with daily harassment.

  • Best thing

    The clients who have a wide range of abilities and different methods of communication.

    Worst thing

    Most co-workers talk down to new people, primarily colleagues struggle to respect the transgender community, and managers do not work alongside their employees. I found that multiple managers would not respect the privacy of clients or medical disabilities of staff.
