Sadly, Layoffs in Denver, Again.

Recruiter (Former Employee)
Denver, CO (US)

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

ProsGreat Pay. Great Benefits. Fast Paced Environment. Updated building. Meet New People.
Some of the management staff are friendly.
You get to keep your job if you do well selling online education subscriptions.

ConsSadly, there are layoffs happening in Denver again. If you aren't making enrollments fast enough, you will be laid off. Very cut-throat environment.
The focus is on Education yet you will be expected to make enrollments- at any cost.
This is a value testing environment. If you have any, you won't make it for long.
Human Resources hands are tied. If you don't meet what they won't call a quota, you will be fired.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo Not Discriminate In The Hiring Process. Lay off the managers that risk you being exposed for discrimination in the hiring process.
Admit you have a quota. 'Performance Based' works but don't tell people when you 'lay them off' that they don't fit the values when they aren't making sales.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
