I worked at Bridgepoint Education full-time for more than a year

Pros

Working at Bridgepoint varies a ton depending on what department you are in. I lucked out and had supportive managers and worked on a relaxed fun and exciting team. Hearing about the working environment in other parts of the company it was a completely different experience.

Cons

Overall the company has some lame policies. There is so much they can do to improve student learning that they are just not investing in. The benefits are fine and are about level with other corporate mid sized companies in the area, nothing to write home about. There is a lack of carrear tracks in some areas and the only way to move up if you hit the senior level is to become a manager.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Overall my experience with direct and senior management in my division was great. It was just a few levels further up that we had problems with. You hired people who are smart and know what they are doing, listen to them sometimes don't just be a dictator.

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

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Good place for entry-level college gards. Will gain experience in cold-calling and sales.

    Cons

    High turnover rate of employees. Didn't like the two week classroom training porgram. Would have rather been trained one on one by a manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a way to keep more employees for the long term.
