Pros

Bridgepoint Education, Ashford University and University of the Rockies has great benefits, $401k, stock options, tuition remission family oriented events and parties, and there isnt much mico managing.

Cons

There inst really any job security. depending on what department you are your managers can be conniving and manipulative. it is hard to move up when you work hard and don't try to sabotage others to get there.

Advice to Management

Really listen to your staff and take their concerns and or suggestions into consideration and try to implement when they stress that it is important.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Education is viewed as very important within the company. The programs that are offered are plentiful, and accredited through the higher learning commission.

    Cons

    Sales type environment to get students into school. Pay increases are not what they used to be. Different verticals make it challenging to get students. Compensation does not compare to market standards.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership programs are plentiful, because the organization is growing so quickly. Areas of advancement present themselves, as long as you are an expert in your current position. Most people start off in sales, and shift from there.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    A lot of Holidays (up to 12 holidays a year), pretty good benefits, you only have to be in a position for 6 months before changing positions

    Cons

    Very disorganized. The company grew so fast and employees moved up to be managers even though they lack experience managing people. There is lack of communication amongst department members. It takes forever to implement new things because everything has to get approved by upper level management. Communication company-wide is terrible. They just got rid of 10% of their employees and will probably do the same thing again next year.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to people in your department. Provide more guidance and support and stop throwing projects down to your employee without giving any feedback.
