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

    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!

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

    Pros

    The only real pros to this company are the Bright Bargains deals online and the ease of on-boarding (since it's a large corporation). There are an abundance of positions with Bright Horizons in many cities.

    Cons

    The pay was disappointing. The director/head of school and I were the only salaried employees in the school, because of my level of experience and education. The school was always trying to save money, so employees were often cut earlier than their shift and classrooms were combined. None of us felt valued and I was the only teacher with a certified Montessori credential....in a Montessori school (6 classrooms). Teacher turnover was high and family/student turnover was also high. Many parents saw how poorly the school was run and how mistreated and unhappy the employees were. Bright Horizons takes "diversity" to the extreme opposite of what it should be: rather than teaching about different cultures, religions, values, NO culture is celebrated. We could not have Halloween parties (imagine the parents' disappointment!), but only a Harvest Fest. We couldn't celebrate or discuss Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, etc. We had young students (ages 2-6), which is a perfect age to talk about and celebrate what makes people different.
