    Pros

    The families and the children.

    Cons

    i have worked in bright horizons for 10 months the staff are very under trained. I recall a time a staff member telling a child that she shouldn't eat to much because she will not be beautiful. On my frist day I walked in to the staff room to hear nearly all the staff talking about how much they hate this place. It was almost that I wasn't allowed to like the place from the start. Everyday I walk in to such a negative enriomemnt of complaints and people planning to leave its so heartbreaking because now I hate my job and planning to give in my notice this week. Because of this job I no longer desrise a job in childcare and looking for other options. Bright horizon is company that cares more about the money then there staff its a very unorganised company and it's very sad but wouldn't wish anyone to work there.

    Advice to Management

    Stop gossiping with other staff about other staff and start being a manager

    Pros

    great support, always someone at the end of the phone or on your doorstep if needed,upper managers, regional managers supportive and listens to management team and their opinions. Brilliant opportunities for ambitious people with plenty of training on offer.

    Cons

    sometimes the reasons behind things are not explained to lower staff who like to see an upper management person cascade things to the team, as a manager we dont always have the time, to give the reasons to our full staff team, staff team like to see upper management in the nursery

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work, maybe turn into a nursery practitioner for the day to engage staff in a positive way.
