Toddler Teacher (Former Employee) – Richland, WA – October 17, 2017
Bright Horizons states that they are all about positive environments, they support their employees 100% and that everyone that works for them is apart of a big family.
I disagree. There are many people at Bright Horizons that get treated unfairly not only by the Leadership team and co-workers, but families as well. Some of the people that work there are actually kind-hearted but some are just down right rude. I would not recommend this company.

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – October 16, 2017
A typical day at work providing excellent customer service to the parents. I have learned a lot while being employed at Bright Horizons. I have learned to be a good listener and always be positive, dealing with different personalities and cultures always smiling no matter the outcome. I have learned the rules and regulation dealing with small children. Management is great, always willing to help out when needed. Weekly meetings to keep us informed what is going on in the center. The workplace is very diverse you learn a lot about other cultures. We have international food week so the other cultures can display their food. The best part is seeing the smiling faces on the children everyday leaning.
As a substitute teacher at Bright Horizons, I loved the flexibility with my schedule. The management was personable and were easy to work with. The hardest part of the job at times were adjusting to the various types of temperaments of the children in different classes. The most enjoyable part of my job were the friendships I made with my co-workers and seeing my precious babies grow and learn.

Bright Horizons is a good place to work. As far as early childhood education settings go, Bright Horizons is a solid organization. Good management structure, solid procedures and systems, and excellent underlying values.
Teacher (Current Employee) – Charlottesville, VA – October 14, 2017
While they promote that this a career choice that you can move up and strive with, they constistantly hired new people off the street instead of promoting perfectly capable candidates who were already working there. Management was very poor, you could never get the admin team to answer the phone, they would approve your time off and then forget about it when making the schedule, waited 2 hours for a bathroom break once because none of the 3 admins up front would come down to my room.
The facility was beautiful! The classrooms were nice and neat even with children playing and leaving toys all over. The staff was friendly and nice. But while I worked there the director was not a nice lady, so between her and my moving to north jersey I resigned.
Fun work and learning environment. Have the opportunity to work with a diverse group of people and children. the center provides training for their employees. Management is very supportive of the employees.
Cook/Kitchen Manager (Current Employee) – Ames, IA – October 5, 2017
I work in the kitchen. It is hot, fast paced and sometimes chaotic. My co-workers are good people, my supervisor is great. I am single and rely on myself for income. After taxes and insurance my take home pay does not allow for any savings. I believe for the work I do, my wage is not high enough. I enjoy the children, they are my sanity. My age and health issues are not in compliance with the work I do.
great management, free meals, appreciation
wage not enough, kitchen is not made for the work involved
Professional, good benefits, opportunities to grow

A very professional and fun group of educators to work with. Our monthly meetings were timely and they provided dinner for the employees. One of the most enjoyable parts of the job was working with a very diverse community and learning about others.
Kindergarten Teacher (Former Employee) – Evanston, IL – October 1, 2017
I worked here for about 10 months and about 60 people left within that time. Enrollment dropped and most people were unhappy. We walked thru the halls trying to cheer each other up. The kids were awful, there behavior was out of control due to the turnover. worst place I ever worked for.
