I worked at Brightside Academy part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Some of the other teachers were very nice and looked out for you.
At first the bosses seemed to care about you and how you were doing.
The bosses did check in every two weeks to see how you were doing and made sure that you went to many training's.

Cons

The company itself did not care.
The building wasn't in the best condition.
The parents were rude at times and the children were abusive to the staff.
At times management did not step in when needed.
They worked you to the last minute they could and at times would keep you over.
The windows could not open which is a fire hazard.

Advice to Management

They need to be more understanding about their employees and their needs. They also need to check on more often and help in stressful situations. They also need to hire people and not wait till the last minute to do so.

    I worked at Brightside Academy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work is rewarding when you think about who you are doing it for. The kids.
    There are some talented people working for the organization.

    Cons

    Overall there's a real lack of structure within the organization and a very high turn over that puts a greater strain on already strained resources. Poor Compensation, Poor leadership and management, overall unprofessional work environment, and disproportion workloads.

    I worked at Brightside Academy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If anything, the laid back environment.

    Cons

    This was honestly the worst job I have ever had. The management is terrible and VERY unprofessional. They give no opportunity for growth no matter how hard you work. It's a lot of work for very little pay. All in all this job/company is a joke. Steer clear.
