I worked at Bright Horizons Family Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

cute, intelligent, happy, and engaged children

thoughtful, caring, involved, diverse, well-educated parents

weekends off

no nights

consistent start-stop work times

respectful, professional site leadership/management

inclusive, diverse and multicultural workplace/client enrollment

corporation philosophy and HEART principles are ethical,logical, consistent and realistic

proprietary WORLD curriculum guidelines are developmentally sound and well-founded

creativity, spontaneity and flexibility in developing and differentiating curriculum are encouraged and supported by center staff

corporation is forward-thinking and growth oriented

Cons

facilities upkeep/aesthetics slow to be realized

sick, vacation benefits acquired in small increments (calculated per minute/hour)

substitute staff variable

payment for lead teacher is rendered on hourly basis

overtime is strongly discouraged

school day planning time is frequently nonexistent

initiatives from upper management lack appropriate allocation of time/resources for teachers

technology, such as "Employee express website," and "Brightweb Employee Portal" are frequently
inaccessible and center management does not have time to deal with issues

front desk support can be skimpy, resulting in rushed/changed/shortened lunch breaks

tuition remission for employees is not enough to cover even one three credit course per year at public, community college

time to maintain Bright Horizons branding in classroom (in the form of basket labels, documentation board captions, deliberate toy rotation and organized storage of materials) is often unavailable and as a result room visually does not fully conform to corporation setup policy

Positive Outlook
