Pros

You make great connections with other co-workers, everyone is easy to get along with, there are some decent shift times if available, and the children are great to work with.

Cons

The pay is very low for what you are doing with the childcare, the business is not accommodating to personal matters (you must find a sub and if you don't you have to work), it is very hard to find someone to cover shifts due to the lack of workers, and more shifts need to be available to work around personal schedules.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to raise the pay rate (this is half the reason why they don't have enough workers, they need to hire more teachers, and they need to make more shift times available.

    I worked at Bright Horizons Family Solutions full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The kids were the only aspect of the job that made it worthwhile.

    Cons

    Management is absolutely horrible and lazy. Management rarely made themselves visible in the classrooms and were never around to help out. You had to page the front desk to get a restroom break (can't leave because of ratio) and sometimes it would take 20-25 mins for management to get to your room. Often management is found sitting at the front desk on the computer just killing time. I was rarely greeted with a hello or goodbye when walking by management at the front desk. If you ever try to move up to a management position it is next to impossible. The pay is horrible especially if you have a college degree. Also you may be scheduled to work 8-5 but not leave until 5:45/6:00 because of ratio so it is hard to balance work and life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to keep good and hardworking employees treat them with the respect they deserve. Make your selves visible in the classrooms.
