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 Management

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent wage for the area, San Diego has a higher cost of living. Very liberal LOA policy.

    Cons

    "Managers" came from the ranks of "salespeople" on the floor. Many had poor management skills if any at all. I was embarrassed to tell people I worked for Ashford University, since it has such a bad reputation, always said I worked for Bridgepoint Education.

  2. Loved my Co-Workers, Communication needs improvement
