    I have been working at Bridgepoint Education full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has gotten much smarter, more strategic and transparent in their business moves. They've tightened up a lot of areas that needed it. Decent enough pay and benefits.

    Cons

    They want to become a great place to work but in many ways stay in the dark ages. Unless you're job title already had flexibility in it, very unlikely to gain it after the fact. Working from home, flexible schedules are said to be options but it is not even across the board. That goes for pay, budgets and benefits as well, some departments are much more "important' than others and get more perks.

    Advice to Management

    On the right track in many ways but can still improve. Look at other great places and be more flexible in what a modern workplace can be.


  3. "Sales"

    I have been working at Bridgepoint Education full-time

    Pros

    Fun team of people to work with. I enjoy being a remote employee. Traveling within my territory is a bonus.

    Cons

    Working remote you can feel disconnected at times. Long sales cycle where it can take up to a year to gain commitment from a prospective partner.

    Advice to Management

    Keep managing the rapid growth to ensure career advancement for team members.

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

    Pros

    People in the office are friendly and willing to help. Benefits are good. Social gatherings after work are nice. Free masters degree if you work there 6 months and continue to work there.

    Cons

    Very dull work. Cold calling all day. Minimal good leads that are most likely to enroll. I feel like my life wasted away sitting at a desk for 8+ hours.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage all employees for even the smallest achievement. ESAs go through many ups and downs and getting managerial or administrative recognition helps.

    Pros

    fun culture, issues resolved promptly, good benefits, great learning experience for future jobs. coaching when needed and support when the job gets to be a bit much. overall, its not an easy job but its rewarding when you improve in the role

    Cons

    the initial training could be more directed at the actual job. was vague and seemed like a waste of time in the bigger picture. it can be a constant battle of getting hung up on and yelled at. need to have a tough skin to do this job

    Advice to Management

    the initial training needs to be more effective. the AI training was fantastic, but the new hires need something effective so that they can start to build good habits right away.

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

    Pros

    Very in depth interview. Completely went over job description.

    Cons

    Just be prepared to do a role play - and you should be fine. The person who interviewed me was pretty intense about it - even though I have no experience. Still got the job though.

    Advice to Management

    I would say that the interview process is good overall. They know what they are doing because they have been hiring hundreds of people lately.
