I have been working at Bridgepoint Education

Pros

A lot of paid holidays. Average vacation and sick time. Decent health benefits.

Cons

Horrible management. Several managers advanced to their position with little management experience. Very disorganized. The company grew too fast and internal structure and organization did not evolve with it. The company let go of 10% of the company all at once (a mass fire, not a layoff). I would not recommend working here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more direction and feedback for employees.

    I have been working at Bridgepoint Education

    Pros

    Cafeteria on-site
    Gym on-site
    Clean bathrooms
    Full package of dental, vision, and healthcare benefits

    Cons

    A lot of management have no clue what's going on with the employees in their department. They're busy running off from meeting to meeting instead of checking in on their employees' productivity and mentoring them in the right direction.

    A lot of co-workers are conniving and don't teach you everything you need to know because they are insecure about losing their job. Most of management are really incompetent. they only got lucky to be promoted because the company grew so fast

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher salaries, recognize who is working hard vs. workers who are hardly working and just chit chattin with their friends.

    I worked at Bridgepoint Education

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
