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

    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.
