    I worked at BrightStar Care full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Kind, compassionate people who actually care about you and their work.

    Cons

    Not a lot of upward mobility since it’s a small company. Pay isn’t what it should be by industry standards for my position. Benefits are mixed free healthcare, everything else is low standard

    I have been working at BrightStar Care full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility . Although the rate per hour could be more the company has flexibility and opportunity to increase weekly pay with opportunity bonuses and incentives.

    Cons

    Very hard work, can be long hours. Wish the hourly compensation was a bit higher.

    Advice to Management

    It would be wonderful to see individual caregiver (s) evaluated by BSC clients ; BSCG with positive reviews might have more incentive to perform their daily work with more commitment and passion. BSCG with positive reviews from BSC clients should receive more financial incentives wether it is hourly or weekly etc. it would be nice across the board.
