Pros
Cons
  • The CEO really cares but is isolated from the reality of being on the front lines and only informed by people who are in upper management (in 12 reviews)

  • It always seems to be a cost savings method and as time goes on great people are let go and those who stay, most are always looking to leave (in 6 reviews)

    I have been working at Bridgepoint Education full-time

    Pros

    Lots of fun, great environment to work in, flexible hours and stuff, able to do what you want

    Cons

    Very strict on stats, sometimes you want to pound your head into the wall because not many people you call want to actually go to school

    Advice to Management

    Maybe set realistic goals instead of basing success on how much money you make? You can't force people to go to school online, and those you have to force will fail

    I have been working at Bridgepoint Education full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Initially, this company gave employees great incentives for their 5 year tenure, but these are no longer offered. Not sure there are any pros anymore...

    Cons

    Everything comes from the top down and here seems to be very little collaboration within this company. With consistent layoffs throughout the year, employees are often left feeling very unsure and often anxious about whether or not they will still have a job the next day.

    Advice to Management

    Stop having money as the main focus.

    I worked at Bridgepoint Education as a contractor

    Pros

    Staff is mostly young and easy to get along with. I was able to make a lot of friends working here. Lots of paid holidays.

    Cons

    Top management is out of touch with what their departments needs are. There doesn't seem to be a clear direction for the company. The recruiting department is clueless and unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more autonomy. Less micromanaging would go a long way. Bringing on new talent with a focus on innovation would be important.

    Pros

    The pay is good here. You have the ability to work over time and make a decent amount. The company is working to become a "Great Place to Work." They provide their workers with good vision and dental benefits.

    Cons

    The grind! Making 200+ dails per day can get exhausting. Many people who work here are only here to collect a paycheck. There's a lot of negativity on the floor which causes people to stress.

    Advice to Management

    Plan more team outtings. Don't be cheap with the monthly budget they give you! Crate a culture of people who look forward to coming to work, even if the highlight of their day is their co workers. Treat people with respect and you shall see that in return.
