Stressful
Infant teacher (Current Employee) –  Boston, MA 02210August 18, 2017
Overall love working with infants. As far as scheduling and trying to benefit the childrens needs Bright horizon lacks. Minimum requirements are met as far as ratio. More focused on enrollment and making money than overall staffing and child needs and development.

Great Principles
Associate Teacher (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIAugust 17, 2017
work place culture is just about the same at any childcare center. The only difference is the mission and what the partiular company stands for. I like the parents like the H.E.A.R.T. principles that they instill in the company.

Poorly managed
Teacher (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 17, 2017
Employees come and go. No consistency. Staff show blatant favoritism towards children. Cookie cutter education. It's a business before it's child care. Zero support for employees who need childcare(part time employees are not eligible for tuition discount) therefore, No incentive to sending children of employees there.
Pros
None
Cons
Revolving door staff, No individuality or creativity, no support for employee childcare

Not a great enviroment
Teacher (Current Employee) –  Columbia, SCAugust 15, 2017
It could be a great place towork if it were not for management. you dont get enough planning time and you are not allowed to maintain control in the class. If you are doing story time If the children want to run around and not listen and disrupt the room you have to let them, The management is is there on world and really dont manage the center. they sit at there desk and do whatever and basically ignore whats going on unless you call them and pitch a fit. The atmosphere is always tense and stressful because we do not have enough help and the management want come in the rooms to help

Not a good place to work
Education Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCAugust 15, 2017
The expectations of workload do not match up with what they pay. even if you have a degree and the right credentials, they still do not pay well. You could do better elsewhere

Great company, bad salary
Teacher (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 15, 2017
Great company to work for however, the salary should be higher. Teachers at this company give quality to children and their families and should be compensated for it. In most of these centers teachers have college degrees and should be paid accordingly.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Terrible salary

Associate Teacher (Former Employee) –  Marrero, LAAugust 14, 2017
The child development center is inclusive. The culture is friendly. It's a place where your talent, skills, and creativity can be freely expressed. The lunch break can be spent away from the work place.

Good company if you are just looking for experience
Teacher (Current Employee) –  IllinoisAugust 13, 2017
Bright Horizons is good for someone just starting off. Definitely wouldn't recommend if you are looking for financial stability. For the tuition that is paid by families, the teachers hardly see a dime. Most employees that i know (multiple centers) are struggling to make ends meet. Good company when it comes to quality care and curriculum.
Pros
Good Experience
Cons
Poor Compensation

Working at Bright Horizons was a very enjoyable experience! Nurturing children and helping develop their education needs was a joy of mine. Not to mention the amazing work staff where every one gets along and can correctly operate in a workplace made the experience even more enjoyable.
