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

Pros

I know I would love my co-workers if I spent time with them outside of work. However, the system makes me dislike some of them because of what they are asked to do, not who they are. The pay is decent, manageable. I love being an exempt employee, I probably would not work here is I was asked to not be.

Cons

Since I have the job I do, I see all of the wrongs the university does as a whole, from a student's perspective. The system is definitely more valuable than the employee. I wish I would have worked here before it became a "public" company.

Advice to Management

Get new management. I cannot stand it when the system is put before the employee, not a recipe for success.

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

    Pros

    Benefits, pay (but only in some departments), and friendliness of most employees.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency, firings that do not make sense (I was not fired, but I saw many people who were), corporate greed, and bad upper level management (many people were promoted because they were just there, not because they were great leaders). If you work in a non-revenue generating department, you may be under paid.

    Advice to Management

    Live up to your values, and stop putting money ahead of the well-being of your staff.
