I worked at Bright Horizons Family Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

If you are motivated, focused, hard worker and wants to learn a lot, this company offers endless opportunities in their Backup programs. It is very challenging to work with different group of children and families on a daily basis, but the rewards are priceless. You will be honed to be a multi-tasker, flexible and strong leader in the field. There are enormous possibility for advancement in Backup because you get to expose yourself to all of the center roles and work in all the classroom, from infants through school age program.

It is not for everyone, but someone who wants to grow, learn and be really good at what they do, combine with passion in teaching and leadership, this is a great a place!

Cons

There's lot of ongoing changes within the program that I worked at, but that is part of the program so one has to be open to working during school holidays as the center gets very busy when school is out.

Advice to Management

Some leadership can be more grounded and compassionate, interactive and supportive, after all, this the field of childcare, so caring is the main word that needs to be highlighted. Showing more genuine appreciation and connecting with the center staff (regardless of roles), can help the company keep the best and amazing teachers from leaving the company.

    technology, such as "Employee express website," and "Brightweb Employee Portal" are frequently

    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
