    I worked at Au Pair in America full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - This experience opened my mind to other cultures, not just the american
    - Teached me how to live with a different family with different rules and different habits.
    - Increased my sense of responsibility since another human being was dependant on my work.
    - Offered me the opportunity to assist to schools that normally would have being very costly to attend
    - Gave me the chance to travel to many places and cities
    - I have met very interesting people, made friends and learn from others situations

    Cons

    - It is very easy to get misunderstandings with your host family when you don´t have a good communication.
    - It is practically a matter of "good luck" whether you get a nice family since you never know how things can turn out after a while with the family you chose to live with

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    a way to avoid misunderstandings between the au pair and the family is to have a closer relation between the person responsible of the area with the au pairs to serve as conciliator between this two parties before misunderstandings arise.

    I have been working at Au Pair in America as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    As a contractor there's freedom from having to work a straight 9-5 schedule
    Event and meeting planning `for program participants affords many areas to be creative.
    Required meetings can be scheduled during traditional non business hours

    Cons

    Low pay with no merit raises
    Detachment from upper management - Departing contractors must alert colleagues and other business contacts. No acknowledgement of staff departure.
    Office and out -of -office- cliques. Management favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Merit raises and/or bonuses. Acknowledgement of staff. Less cronyism.
