My salary supports the life style I live but if circumstances changed it would not be sufficient.

The only event we have is a company Christmas meal in December, there aren't any other events for staff to attend to get to know each other. Some rooms within the company with arrange team nights out independently.

9. Would you recommend Bright Horizons Family Solutions to a friend?


9b. Why?

I would recommend Asquith Day Nurseries to a friend as a good nursery to put their child(ren) in as I feel it would benefit the child(ren) and give them the support they need, I wouldn't recommend a friend to work there unless they are fully committed to working long hours as at times it can be tiring.
