I worked at Bridgepoint Education full-time (more than an 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 (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.
