Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Denver, CO (US)

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

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.

    I worked at Bridgepoint Education full-time for more than a year

    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.

    I worked at Bridgepoint Education full-time for more than a year

    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.
