I have been working at Bridgepoint Education full-time for more than a year

Pros

Decent Pay, good benefits, opportunities for professional development and growth, community partnerships. This company does a great deal of community service projects as well as outreach to the San Diego community. Outside of the admissions department, there is a great sense of job satisfaction, and safety. OUside of Admissions you will find a very professional atmosphere, and an emphasis on developing talents and leadership. Very supportive of the military community.

Cons

a lot of turnover, constant change. The Admissions floors are a place that can be very tough. Management puts a lot of pressure on employees and lower management to perform. I have seen people with Masters degrees completely not satissfied, nor appreciated for their value. I can say that the culture is changing though. The company is moving away from overly-aggressive sales tactics. Now they're just aggressive. The company doesn't do an adequate job of addressing parking problems.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep striving to develop a culture in the Admissions dept. that can support every employee. Everyone should feel proud to have this company on their resume, or facebook page. Continue to be involved in the community, and making the reputation of the brand a strong one. Make exceptions for students if you have to, especially if it means they won't feel ripped off.

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology, great employees and talented engineers. Management is not just another layer added for process but helpful and qualified.

    Cons

    Need a better plan for consistancy across state lines. Educational depth is lacking in that there are not technical competencies. Benefits are good but not stellar.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    On the software the side tech leads and managers are highly qualified and willing to work with team members of all walks to get things done without sacrificing quality.

    Pros

    Co-wokers were mostly fun, there is a certain level of professional development here though it plateaus quickly.

    Cons

    This company is under constant pressure now from the Congress to change its practices, and is being investigated by the department of justice. They essentially lied to me about the job I would be doing when I signed up. They have no idea what they're doing now. This place is a dead end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of your ENTIRE executive team and start over. Terrible.
