No matter what position you hold at AAI, you are heard and valued. I also love that you can have a work/life balance at AAI!""I absolutely love the collaborative nature of AAI! I also love how everyone's value to the company is consistently recognized and celebrated :)""I love that growth and change is welcomed, but not at the expense of our core values as an agency! I love that everyone's input, from all position levels, is valued, considered, and a huge part of the decision making as an agency. I love that there is flexibility and that our mental health is prioritized in order to be the best clinicians (and humans) possible! I appreciate that the work culture promotes a drama free environment and that egos are left at the door (or at the sign in screen, if you will), which is hard to find within this field! I LOVE that I get to disseminate our science to rural communities and that I get to do this with THE MOST incredible team with me."The camaraderie we have as a team is unlike anything I have ever experienced at any other agency. Saying I am blessed to work here is an understatement! I can go on and on, but I want to hit these as my main points. AAI is truly da best!""I love that AAI fosters creativity and individuality in all of our treatment plans, and we are constantly growing and evolving to be better. Most companies prefer you produce identical copies for every treatment plan for ease of implementation. I have never once felt too stressed out to come to work at AAI. AAI's community and overall atmosphere is so welcoming and not only client oriented but actually employee oriented. That is so rare to find! I LOVE AAI!!!""AAI is unlike any other organization out there (especially in this field). There are so many specific factors that set AAI apart: dense levels of support, open communication, frequent access to reinforcement from one another, eagerness to learn, honest-to-God appreciation and value for what each team member brings to the table. Moreover, there's really just an 'it' factor that the founder has manifested here; a way it FEELS to come to work; a way we can be in a meeting and just BE; a way we KNOW we are being heard and TRUST that this organization is as motivated as we are to be happy, successful, and well, in both work and life.""One thing I love about AAI is that this organization takes into consideration everyone's strengths and areas of support needs for each person, and it feels like we genuinely have a giant support group to help out when needed!"LOOKING TO FILL THIS POSITION ASAP! approximately 27-29 hours/weekPI0211c3024559-31181-32575581
