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 Management

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

    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.

    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
