    Pros

    Great place to work. The agency was very flexible with me regarding my schedule while I was in school. They looked out for me and took any concerns seriously. If there was a problem they listened. They also made sure that the families treated me with respect and not a second class citizen. Most families were great. It opened my eyes to different cultures and lifestyles that I will be able to use in my career going forward. Management is very considerate and understanding of circumstances that arise but if when the is taken advantage of they definitely will take disciplinary action.

    Cons

    I would have like to have been paid more but understand that because many jobs were contracted from an outside agency they were limited but did increase whenever possible.

    Advice to Management

    Other than increases in wages since the area does deem a higher hourly rate there is not much I advise I can give since they are very kind, caring and appreciative of their employees from what I have seen.

    Pros

    The company is all about working with your schedule. As a placement nanny your schedule is pretty cut and dry and it's easy to get into a routine. Unlike food service or retail you don't have coworkers to switch shifts with, but they have an on call nanny service just in case of an emergency. On call is also pretty cool to do because it's something different every day.

    Cons

    Challenges, probably just communication with families. Parents are always changing their minds about things and sometimes they fail to communicate with you. But the good thing is that CNT understands that and has your back usually. The dress code is a little dated but again not every job is totally perfect.

    Pros

    the technology rocks and there is some great training available. each location is run by a business owner, so by showing the right attitude you can really progress

    Cons

    none, really, although there is a lot of technology being implemented at the moment, such as a mobile app, which can be a headache - but will totally be worth it for families and "role models" i.e. nannies and tutors

    Advice to Management

    keep the transition between systems smooth and offer benefits where possible.

    Pros

    I loved what I was doing, and the pay seemed good for it - getting paid to play and clean?? Two of my favorite things to do.

    Cons

    Management was awful. I dreaded having to work with them, but luckily I didn't have to regularly. Unreliable. I'm hoping that was only true for the specific office I worked for, because what the company in entirety offers is special.

    Advice to Management

    The reason that I left was management, simple as that. New parents seeking nannies requested me and I was exceptional with those I worked with. Cut the drama and become more professional.

    Pros

    Super flexible with your schedule. Management team is amazing, and the families are fantastic.

    Cons

    Sometimes if you don't respond in time, the job will go to another nanny.

    The families appreciate you!

    Cons

    Franchise owner and management are dreadful. The pay was way below average. The profit they make off of families by lying about the insurance margins is pathetic and the business model is unethical

    Advice to Management

    Pay people and treat people with value and worth

    Pros

    The only reason you should work here is if you literally have no other option. Unless you are about to be evicted onto the streets, don't work here.

    Cons

    -Text messages as early as 6am and as late as midnight all day every day, and you have to respond within 15 mins. Completely takes over your life-- and you're not compensated for that. -They charge clients extra for multiple children, but your pay rate stays the same regardless of the number of children. -Wage Theft: Policy is that you need to show up 10-15 minutes early and if the parent is late, stay for up to an extra 15 minutes without compensation. -Management "restructured" the pay scale, essentially cutting pay, and tried to convince us that we were getting the better end of the deal. -Their caseload doubled, and instead of hiring more people, they worked us even more. And tried to guilt us and manipulate us when we said no. -Driving long distances at God awful hours, often working 10 hr shifts with no overtime. -No professional development or trainings beyond orientation.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic. You don't pay enough for staff to be on call all the time. You burn us out and then act surprised when we quit. Either pay us more or hire some more people. Also, buy a map of Atlanta so you won't be surprised when I won't take a case in Jonesboro at 7am or can't get to Buckhead in 20 minutes.

    Pros

    It pays but not much

    Cons

    your asked to lie to clients, they don't give you much notice of jobs, they don't pay attention to where you want to be placed, they play favorites, they lie to you, you have to almost beg to get a good position, Clients request you many times and are told you are not available even when you are.

    Advice to Management

    get a heart, stop thinking of only the $$$ you are supposed to be in it for the children and families. stop lying to everyone.
