    Pros

    The organization did make sure that their Au Pairs did not work overtime or were being taken advantage of by certain families, which was great.

    Cons

    The lady responsible for the Au Pair's in my area only cared about the host families, not so much about the Au Pair's. So it was a bit frustrating when one of us had a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and continue to treat your assets as well as your liabilities.
