    Pros

    Great opportunities to meet new families all over the city.

    Cons

    Wish they had more full-time assignments for Nannies who want one family.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more chances to do get togethers with other Nannies who live locally instead of once a year.

    Pros

    When I first started, my manager was very helpful and contacted me whenever there were possible students. I worked with a few students periodically and it was some nice side money. There isn't much training, but the manager assured me that they could get any resources/materials I may need. Their system is easy to use to enter the hours you worked.

    Cons

    A few months ago, my manager left and now I'm not sure if I'm even still employed with the company. I haven't received any calls about possible students and there hasn't been any communication. When I did have students, sometimes it is difficult to get to their homes if they aren't metro accessible and they don't reimburse you for travel time or cost. Compared to other tutoring companies in the area, the pay is pretty low, but I accepted because I really liked the atmosphere. Will probably be moving on very soon.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication when there are changes!

    Pros

    Short hours with higher wage per hour, flexible scheduling, friendly atmosphere, adhered to a code of ethics, good marketing resources to build clientele.

    Cons

    Short notice for cancellations, no show appointments were frequent, director left with no notice and it was not clearly communicated to Per Diem staff- effected scheduling and correct student with tutor placement.

    Advice to Management

    Need for better after hour management protocols, frequently there was a need for a tutor to reach management or a family and they had no resource available to do so.

    Pros

    Great job for college student, they flexible with your hours.

    Cons

    If you don't response to there email and phone calls they hardly ever call to schedule you, they schedule you on jobs at 12am or 5am in the morning and you don't respond in an hour it's given to someone else

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay, try to schedule us at a timely fashion. Give more hours and benefits

    Pros

    At first, one would feel as if they are doing something good, by helping families secure childcare and tutoring--but this is not the case. They give you a cell phone, but only because you are required to respond to families 24/7.

    Cons

    It is hard to work for and believe in a company that basically rips off their clients. They claim to "build stronger families" but they really just "build stronger rich families". The only people who don't think it's a ripoff are the owners, rich parents who don't care, and clients who don't know. The company is only concerned about making huge profits by charging families double and triple what they are paying their nannies and tutors. Managers are so overworked, underpaid, and stressed out from having to meet sales goals. If a family suggests that the cost is a little too high, managers are told to either push them and make them feel bad until they give in, or be rude to them and move on. Owners only support managers who make them the most money, regardless of how hard you work. I've seen managers show prejudice towards families they automatically assume cannot afford the services. Their hiring practices for nannies and tutors also boarder on unethical. They are a staffing company, yet there is zero HR training or education. In addition, they offer bare minimum benefits (if any, and only to FT employees), little to no home/work life balance, and little to no advancement opportunities. After many years with this company, I realized I could no longer be apart of it. If you have any morals at all, you will stay far away from this company.

    Advice to Management

    This should be advice to corporate and owners: STOP BEING SO GREEDY!

  10. Great place to work, and you gain very valuable experience!

    Pros

    There are many pros about working here- You can create your very own, flexible schedule. They work with you on what YOU can do and how many hours/week you can manage. You get hands-on practical experience with children and families, which is always fun! The staff is always very nice, pleasant, friendly, and understanding.

    Cons

    When you create your scheduler online for your availability, make sure to stick with it! If you made personal plans while the scheduler says you are available and you get staffed for a job, you have to quit those plans.

    Advice to Management

    Work-life balance is great. This is more of a FUN job, so it never really felt like work when I was going to nanny. The business is facilitated in a very professional, easygoing manner. The staff is also very supportive of any concerns that may arise while working.
