I have been working at Bridgepoint Education full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great learning opportunity for me. The growth was incredible and sustained for a long period of time. I thoroughly enjoyed all the opportunities that were presented to me.

Cons

It's now a big corporation with some significant risk because of the accreditation status of Ashford University. The Admissions Counselor job is a rough one that is effectively a sales job with no incentive pay and a lot of turnover. The IT department has been behind for years. They just can't seem to stay up to pace with the business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Plan and communicate - that's where the opportunity is.

    I worked at Bridgepoint Education full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My co-workers were fun, friendly and smart despite the overall negative vibe created by leads and managers.

    Cons

    Inexperienced managers who did not practice what they preached.
    Highest turnover rate of any employer I have ever known.
    Outing employees in group meetings for job performance -- who trained these people?
    Harassment of employees and open discrimination.
    There is no salary that can compensate for being treated as sub-human.
    Salary in my department was low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some leaders who have leadership skills and experience.
    Treat employees as people and not machines.
