    I worked at Cultural Care Au Pair full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The demographics of coworkers makes it a great place to work after college. Buildings are very new and modern. Healthcare benefits are great, as are their ET and sick time policy.

    Cons

    No real career ladder. Often have to switch from one internal company to another. Environment can be clique-y with lots of gossip. Don't let anyone fool you, this is very much a sales job. If you do not hit your goals, you will not be rewarded and rewards are often trips where you get to spend three or four days in another country and working extensively! Managers definitely play favorites. The job is not 40 hours. The job is an expectation to get your work done and hit your goals, which may mean coming in early or staying late.

    Advice to Management

    Create a career ladder. Although it is marketed as a young and hip environment, it should feel open and safe as well, not allowing hostile behaviors by coworkers.

    I have been working at Cultural Care Au Pair full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My favorite part of working here is the awesome, smart, hardworking people. My 2nd favorite thing about working here is all the different parts of me I get to utilize. Sometimes I get to be a social extrovert, and sometimes an analytical introvert. Sometimes I get to run around, do public speaking, make gift bags, lead a training, interview candidates, and have fun at work. I help support a staff that provides amazing experiences for au pairs and host families. There are indeed long-term career opportunities for the Best & Brightest.

    Cons

    A lot of the cons here seem to be from actual au pairs who didn't have the best situation, or from independent contractors (LCCs) who contract part-time with us. It is unfortunate when anyone affiliated with the company has a bad experience, but it's worth noting that full-time staff in the office (like me), or in the field, have a very different experience than those who are au pairs or independent contractors with us.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your staff. They are smart and thoughtful.

    I worked at Cultural Care Au Pair full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    my host family was very supportive, kind,even though there difficult moments, they were very nice to me when I need it the most.

    Cons

    my schedule was hard to handdle because it was fixed every day according to the mom's schedule, so I never knew how it was going to be for the next week, she changed it all the time.

    Pros

    Possibility to explore a different culture

    Cons

    It depends on luck whether you get a great family

    Advice to Management

    Be more concerned about the Au Pair's well-being than the Host-families. Remember the Au Pair is here alone and relying on you


  11. Wonderful experience and company - only if you take your time to find the right family.

    Pros

    Good support (in most cases) Great life experience You get to know amazing people from all over the world

    Cons

    Low salary Many times they will support the family during a rematch and not the Au pair (even if they've been abusive in different ways)
