I worked at Bridgepoint Education full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The job paid well, offered great training, and benefits

Cons

Highly stressful environment. If you didn't enroll enough students you would be fired or receive pay cuts. They hired about 200 people ever couple of weeks and most of them couldn't make the cut. About 1/4 were fired for not being good enough. 1/4 were promoted to manager or transferred to another department. And about 1/2 left the position due to stress. Many employees were seeing counselors strictly for work related stress. Also get ready to work a lot!!!!!

Advice to Management

Invest in your employees. Don't churn and burn

    I have been working at Bridgepoint Education full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great team of people in the graduate division.

    Cons

    They operate a classic boiler room. Nothing but high pressure phone calls to prospective students (veiled as admissions counseling).

    Advice to Management

    Cut out all the layers of management. It's overkill.

    I have been working at Bridgepoint Education full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Laid back environment and good people. The benefits packages are decent, but not great (no paid FMLA for new parents).

    Cons

    Professional, educated, and salaried employees are treated the same as those with only high school degrees. I believe that there should be benefits for finishing school and having experience. Software developers don't get a lot of self-improvement benefits, unless you happen to be on the right team.
