Bridgepoint Education

Enrollment Advisor (Current Employee)
San Diego, CA

ProsBridgepoint is a young and growing company in which some people will achieve early advancement in their career. The organization as a whole offers a very appealing professional and collaborative culture. Many employees express pride in being part of a young organization with an entrepreneurial spirit that is also an emerging industry leader. Bridgepoint is an excellent place to start a career.

ConsThe Enrollment Department in particular is an incredibly competitive, often unnecessarily stressful environment. The culture in this department is performance driven with an unspoken "up or out" mentality. The company is also very growth oriented and favors it's sales force heavily over other departments. Employees in other departments often complain of having unrealistic workloads and a lack of resources. Many positions are underpaid for the educational and workload requirements expected.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think the executive leadership at Bridgepoint has proven that they know how to grow a young company. The future seems bright for this emerging industry leader. I would like to see the corporate officers place as much emphasis on the quality of what we do as an educational instituition as they have on what we do as a business.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
