    I have been working at Bright Horizons Family Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Friendly - Love the families - Fun at times - Supportive for the most part

    Cons

    - Scrambling every day to get paperwork done for NAEYC, Curriculum, Conferences, Documentation, Day to day things - We really need a fourth teacher, but we barely make it with three. If I'm not doing paperwork, I'm cleaning up or preparing for something. I rarely get that quality time with the children and it shows. - I'm walking on eggshells because there goes my job if I mess up. What's worse is I'm the lead teacher! Everyone says they're there for one another, but really they're there to take over your position if you get fired. Honestly its everyone for themselves. Can be very stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your teachers better, or better yet - take our salary for a week or even a month THEN ask yourself can you really survive in the bay area with our pay? You'll realize that you can't. Don't ask why did a teacher leave when they're so good with the children. You could have kept them had you paid them better wages. Know when your staff is getting burnt out because that's another reason they will want to leave.
