I have been working at Bright Horizons Family Solutions full-time

Pros

Big company, always have job security as long as people still are having kids- HA!

Cons

Being in a room all day, can sometimes feel like being a caged animal in a zoo. Calling for someone to come and give you a restroom break - annoying

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

    Pros

    Job security: 2-worker families=daycare job positions

    Cons

    Poor leadership. No voice for employees. What the poor leadership says, goes. The teachers are very underpaid. Insurance benefits are offered but expensive. Hard to get time off for vacation, doctor appointments, etc. No work/personal life balance for us! I had great hopes for my career at BH, no thanks. There are other jobs out there where you can be appreciated for all the hard work and commitment.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to suggestions and change, when warranted. Lets be a little fair here, Dave Lissy. I'm sure YOU get paid a handsome salary with great benefits. How about reviewing your centers. Provide a better life for the ones that make your clients lives better. I can't support my child on what you are paying your employees. The economy is recovering. Lets get with the times.

    Pros

    Supportive, caring environment. The company does a great job in the area of corporate responsibility.

    Cons

    Very low wages. Pay is well below what the market suggests it should be.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people what they're worth - or at least market value!! Attracting great talent is only half the battle - you have to keep them!
