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

Pros

Laid back environment and good people. The benefits packages are decent, but not great (no paid FMLA for new parents).

Cons

Professional, educated, and salaried employees are treated the same as those with only high school degrees. I believe that there should be benefits for finishing school and having experience. Software developers don't get a lot of self-improvement benefits, unless you happen to be on the right team.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, coworkers were mostly nice, great gyms

    Cons

    It is very political and people who don't know what they are doing get promoted and and unfit for management. Right now there is a lot of uncertainty, and people I know who work there fear that they will be let go at any time. In January they let go of 10% of the company and they say it will happen every year. Many veterans with the company are leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Start to value your employees and don't use scare tactics to get people to work. Also, look to reorganizing management, especially upper management, as they are often the least competent.

    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 Management

    Provide more direction and feedback for employees.
