I have been working at Bridgepoint Education

Pros

As a swiftly growing company , there are plenty of opportunities to experiment and be involved. For people who do not favor the traditional office environment, this company will be a refuge. while not quite as free as say a Google.. it does pride itself on being happy, casual and down to earth.

Cons

The company was not prepared for it's swift growth. systems are in place that worked well enough for a few years ago, but are barely holding up under the pressures of the current volume.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not going to suggest a thing.

    I have been working at Bridgepoint Education full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing and you gain experience in a corporate setting. It was a great way for me to learn the ins and outs of the corporate work environment.

    Cons

    The position I was in could get monotonous; finding ways to make the workday more enjoyable for entry-level employees could reduce turn-over rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would benefit employees in entry level positions to gain experience in other job functions. I would suggest an official internal internship or mentoring program to help employees advance their careers.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits & pay, however not all time off requests are honored, even with plenty of notice. Weekend shifts are required. Supportive team environment.

    Cons

    Managers are inconsistent in communicating with their teams changes from upper management. Policies are constantly changing as the university evolves. Shifts, management and team changes are continual. Being flexible is expected. Weekend shifts are mandatory and there is no extra pay for working weekends. Work is not challenging, no room for advancement. Dead end job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quality conversations with students matter vs. quick as possible. There needs to be room for advancement and leadership within the department as the jobs are not challenging.
