Floater/Assistant Teacher (Former Employee), Bethel, CT – April 12, 2014
I enjoyed my time at Bright Horizons. While I worked there, I was able to work closely with all age groups and I bonded with numerous children. This center paid close attention to education and made sure that each individual child was getting the help they needed on various levels.
Lead teacher (Current Employee), Forest ln Dallas tx – April 12, 2014
Pros: going home!
Cons: bad hygiene(breath) and managment is distasteful!
This company just got bought out by bright horizons and boy have they changed a lot. I get depressed as soon as I turn into the parking Lott only because I know what I'm about to face! Managment is terrible to say the lease and as soon as you walk in your greatest by a pungent odor! I can't quit wrap my finger around the smell but it's awful! YUCK! – more... And the directors treat certain employees different then they do others ! Let's just say they have "favorites" no overtime you can forget that and no morals! They do not exemplify their core values at all! It's also very messy amongst some of the management there! The forest ln location is horrible and if your looking for growth then this is NOT the place for you! I'm currently looking for another job with better benefits, more pay, and management that values me as a worker! Good luck to future candidates and hopefully your experience will be more fulfilling then mine has been! – less
Assistant Director (Current Employee), Boston, MA – April 9, 2014
Pros: working with children and families, completing tasks invovling the children's files, helping others.
Cons: short breaks, poor management, poor trainings if any, respect from others
Working at Bright have given me lots of experiences some challenging than others. It has given me confidence in some areas I feared I lacked knowledge or experience. We have a small team which can be a pro or a con at times. The hardest part of my job is not having the proper management/training needed to perform my job well. It is also challenging – more... when there is not a great deal of support from co-workers. Last not given the proper amount of time to complete an important task.
What I like about my job is working with the children they always put a smile on my face. I like when my co-workers are working well together. I enjoy learning new things/ideas when given the opportunity. – less

I am an Associate Teacher in the Infant rooms, and couldn't be happier. Watching children learn and grow is rewarding. Strong work will bring advancement opportunities. Management listens to staff requests and concerns and they do what they can to allow a good work/life balance.
