    Sadly, Layoffs in Denver, Again.

    I worked at Bridgepoint Education full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great Pay. Great Benefits. Fast Paced Environment. Updated building. Meet New People.
    Some of the management staff are friendly.
    You get to keep your job if you do well selling online education subscriptions.

    Cons

    Sadly, there are layoffs happening in Denver again. If you aren't making enrollments fast enough, you will be laid off. Very cut-throat environment.
    The focus is on Education yet you will be expected to make enrollments- at any cost.
    This is a value testing environment. If you have any, you won't make it for long.
    Human Resources hands are tied. If you don't meet what they won't call a quota, you will be fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do Not Discriminate In The Hiring Process. Lay off the managers that risk you being exposed for discrimination in the hiring process.
    Admit you have a quota. 'Performance Based' works but don't tell people when you 'lay them off' that they don't fit the values when they aren't making sales.

    Pros

    Decent starting salary and benefits package
    Enjoyed my coworkers

    Cons

    Everything else
    The pay and benefits have to be good because nearly everyone hates working there.
    Management was hilariously inept. I had 3 managers in 8 months and didn't learn a thing from any of them. Directors are only about the bottom line and will overlook employees breaking federal laws as long as their enrolling "students".
    Admissions Counselor is the most misleading title ever. They use sales tactics and teach you how to guilt people into enrolling into a school that is going to fail them.
    I was repeatedly asked if I was interested in moving up to management, then inexplicably laid off in their last "10% cut" without any concrete reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out before the DoE shuts down the school and prosecutes for breaking federal regulations.
