Positive Outlook

I have been working at Bridgepoint Education full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

You are guaranteed raise each year

Cons

They have no problems lowering your pay if you change positions. HR needs to be evaluated and replaced with competent staff with relative experience.

Advice to Management

Make it a standard practice to promote from within and start with members of your own team.

    Pros

    -Training
    -Decent Pay for introductory/first time career
    -Fun atmosphere until the micromanaging sets in
    -Young corporate culture

    Cons

    -Micromanaging
    -They say you are an enrollment advisor-its pretty much telemarketing
    -They only care about the numbers-couldnt care less of actual student success other than the academic advisors.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing!

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

    Pros

    Decent/competitive pay, nice building, clean bathrooms, nice cafeteria, supportive environment to foster education related goals, some very smart people, a few fair leaders with integrity

    Cons

    Where do you start? Ironically, being qualified, focused, or educated does not lead to success or career growth opportunities here. Its about playing the game here. This political place lacks focus from 'leaders' & transparency (& its getting worse), applies dysfunctional processes (even after $$$ spent on expert product development consulting to shake up the org. with agile processes), is governed by arrogant/short-sited management, w/ visions of improvement through constant changes/re-orgs. But the end result is high turn-over, demoralized staff, and uninspiring 'innovation'. Skills available not utilized, new titles/roles fail to reflect true expertise, and many feel insulted/invisible/under-valued.

    Advice to Management

    They don't listen, but in the rare chance they do here it is: Management - If you really care about the future of education with the intent to be a leader in this field of innovation for educational technology & if you care about your employees developing solutions for you, then take an honest look at what processes/innovation-approaches are really being implemented & how. Don't assume new leadership is driving things for the better. Don't assume they are really the voice of those hired to innovate. Reach out to the talent that lacks a voice. Your turn-over is high. You are pushing out those who deserve to be respected & appreciated. Employees are frustrated. Your choices are leading to poor outcomes & low morale. You are missing an opportunity to make a difference. You have staff that cares about doing the right thing, but feels undervalued & deeply demoralized.
