ABA Therapist in Nepean, ON
on 16 October 2021
Do not work here
I cannot stress enough the damage that working at the Portia Learning Center will do - not only to your mental health and well-being but any chance at a career at other centers. Therapists at Portia have a bad reputation due to the poor management, training, and stress that is put on us as therapists. DO NOT WORK HERE. If you are thinking of becoming certified - RUN. This place has so many ethical violations, I am not sure how they have not lost their license yet or someone lost their credentials. The place is dirty, the toys are broken and the rooms are falling apart. Not a good place to work at all.

Run far away!
This place was the most toxic environment to work in. The staff are caddy and management sucks; always making you feel bad and judged when you ask questions or ask for clarification. The pay is terrible and does not compare to any other therapy places. Your mental health will be affected and burn out will settle in. The turnover rate for staff is wild which in turn affects everyone there. This company is very money hungry and doesn't actually care about the clients. Staff talk about clients, client families and their situations in front of many other people to hear. Honestly just run, there are lots of other centres who do the same work who are way more professional and apply proper ABA therapy.

The Portia Learning centre is terribly managed. I have anxiety from time to time but this job made it unbearable. I would have panic attacks at least one a week working here. The management do not care about their staff of clients. The amount of work the therapists do is overwhelming and we get no recognition for any of it. You need a masters degree if you want to consider moving up in the company and the pay is terrible. After handing in my two week notice the managers and senior therapists were very hostile towards me which genuinely showed how little they really care. Over all would not recommend working here.

Stay Far Away From This Awful Company
Working at The Portia Learning Centre has been nothing short of a nightmare. Management is extremely hostile and rude and the overall workplace environment is toxic. You will be put in situations that will take a toll on your mental health and safety, without any form of support. The Portia Learning Centre manages its staff on a fear-based system, where you are scrutinized over the ways in which you conduct your work. The low wages are not worth the amount of work they pile on you. It is quite clear that the company favours making money over the well-being of staff and clients. The benefits are also a joke and are given on a shared group basis. Please do yourself a favour and avoid working at this awful company if you truly love working within the field of ABA, because this company will make you hate it.

Terrible company
This was literally the worst job I have ever had! It seems great when you start, but it goes downhill so fast. The work environment is very hostile and people only advance (promotions, raises etc.) if they kiss management's a**. Management will also lie to you point-blank. It is very much a company that only cares about money and does not actually care about the kids or the families. Therapists are not appreciated by management and there is so much gossip that goes around (between therapists and management). They don't handle situations well and therapists get very minimal training. Pay is awful compared to the things you will have to put up with. I could literally go on all day about how horrible the Portia Learning Centre is. Would not wish it upon my worst enemy to work here. Do yourself a favour and find a different job. If I could give zero stars, I absolutely would.
