    I took BrainStation's Data Analytics course as a way to further my analytical skills for my current role. I use Excel often but had no experience working with larger data sets, and wanted to upgrade my skills to be able to do more complex analysis.

    I came out of the course with an understanding of some complex tools (SQL, Tableau) as well as with hands-on experience doing analysis of a variety of different data sets. The instructors were very attentive and there was enough time in class to work through problems with their assistance. The pace does move quite quickly, but there is enough support in and outside of class if you need it. Highly recommend this course!

    Signed up as a part of my company's effort in learning more about Google Analytics. The company spent roughly $2.5K to send 7-8 people to the 7-hour course on Sunday. 

    In the first 30 minutes, it was clear that both instructors have not prepared at all to host the session :

    • No structure
    • Reading from slides
    • No structured approach to explaning material
    • Lack of rehearsal for the class

    In about an hour, I realized that we are already a section behind and instructors did not think of sticking to the agenda up until the moment it was lunch time and we were nowhere near the expected point in agenda. 

    There was a huge gap between the audience and instructors, no interactions and on occasions when "students" would ask questions, answers were never 100% satisfying - as if we are paying someone who is only "good enough" to teach us. 

    My advice : before thinking of signing up for one of these 1-day bootcamps, I definitely recommend searching for available online materials ( especially if this is a Google Analytics/Ad Words/Digital Marketing) as this will be a more structured approach to learning rather than sitting in a classroom where instructors aren't 100% or even 75% confident about the topics covered. 

    Most common words used during the session : 

    • I think this is how its done
    • I'm not too sure because I'm not a developer
    • I think that's what it used to be
    • Not sure why they do it that way
    • Need to look it up during the break

    Question to Outbrain : HOW DO YOU SELECT INSTRUCTORS? 

    Do you ever look past their resume and have any other ways to see how fit are they to host sessions that cost 300$ per head?

    I did the web development immersive program. The group started off on the wrong note as there were way too many students, the ratio we were promised was incorrect. 

    There was a lot of great topics covered in the lectures, but it was presented too quickly for most, and once you fell behind you stayed behind. Brainstation offered little to no support for anyone who was struggling. I had reached out for assistance on several occasions to multiple instructors and was ignored or put off for the most part. The one time I was spoken to it was in an aggressive manner, it was strongly suggested that I was the problem, not the program. 

    There were many times that the group was promised something that was never delivered. The portal we were getting our lessons from was a work in progress, often you could not access the lessons and they kept modifying the website. It felt like we were the test rats for the new platform. Everything felt very disorganized, and the cohorts took second place to any corporate event that took place in the space.

    I signed up for the part-time class in NYC.

    They cancelled the class 4 business days before the start date of the class.

    Or as they put it "Unfortunately we've had to delay the start of our part-time courses, and we don't have an official start date posted yet."

    I couldn't sign up with another institution due to the fact that all fall classes had passed their admission deadlines. 

    Didn't receive any type of accommodation for the inconvenience they caused (like a discount on a future course or something of that nature).

    They provided me with a refund but the waste of time and effort, not to mention how unprofessional this was, forced me to write this review.

    Hi there, 

    We appreciate you leaving a review, and apologize that your class was cancelled. This is a very rare occurrence for us and not something that we take lightly. Unfortunately, there are rare instances when this is unavoidable, and our Learning Advisor team always provides a full refund to students, saves a spot in the next cohort if you would still like to take the class, and also offers a Learning Credit for future events, panel discussions, or workshops.

    Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us directly at contact@brainstation.io so that a member of our team can discuss your experience further.

    For the amount of money paid for this course, the quality of teaching was really underwhelming. Industry experts are awesome but that doesn't make them good educators. Brainstation needs to do a better job of training and equipping the industry experts to teach an effective class. I walked away feeling very disappointed and without a goog grasp of Digital Marketing, and I know many/most in my class felt the same. For the final presentations reps from the companies we were presenting on were supposed to be there but only 1 showed up. They announced a winner but didn't explain why the rest of us didn't win which would have been an idea learning opportunity that was missed. There's a lot of potential here but Braintstation really needs to step up it's game if it wants to be a leader in this space. There aren't really any substantial perks for alumni who have spent thousands of dollars for these courses. I definitely wouldn't recommend to a friend.

    As someone who has just recently stepped into the world of product management, BrainStation's 10-week long part-time course kicked things into high gear for me. Starting from the basic fundamentals of what it is to work in the industry, I found very quickly that so much of what I had done and have been doing in my role as Academic Operations & Digital Media Manager at an e-learning start up was translatable.

    The course content is well put together, practical and current with a hands-on approach in mind. I'm holding these class resources dearly now as I venture into new projects at work, searching for ways to apply the material. For me, this was the best part of the entire 10-week course; the fact that I could turn around and use what I had been learning in the class the next day at work. The course covers a lot of ground and touches on all aspects of being a product manager from market research to user experience to pricing.

    The instructors in the course were fantastic as well. Industry professionals who have the experience and stories to make the material incredibly relatable and contextual for the class. Their feedback, never-ending patience, and passion for the industry made the 10 weeks fly by!

    The product management course at BrainStation is a must-take for anyone looking to transition into a more product-focused role. The small class size makes it easy for students to dive deeper into the material and have meaningful discussions with each other. I really appreciate how the students all come from diverse industries as well. The instructor is super approachable and spends time answering your questions, while providing relevant anectotes from his experience as a product manager.

    The course content is also really impressive, although I wish we had more than 10 weeks to go over it all. There's a lot to absorb, so I recommend that after class, you take the time to review and really understand the concepts. The material touches upon all aspects of product management, and explains how different business functions interact with each another. As a marketer at a tech startup, it was crucial for me to understand how product marketing fits in the product manegement discipline.  

    Lastly, the final project allows students to build their own product from start to finish. Thinking critically about the features you're building and the problems you're solving for really trains you to think like a product manager. I'd recommend this class to anyone.

    The curriculum is a work in progress.  Things we were supposed to learn were never covered and not replaced by anything else.  We were promised files containing the solutions to many of the challenges, but many were never delivered.  The deployment lessons we were promised near the end of the course still haven’t been added to the online portal.  

    Some of the challenges used starter code provided by other people from Konrad Group which didn’t work and actually prevented us from completing the challenges.  Even the code written by our lead instructor Rares was frequently wrong because he didn’t take the time to check his work before giving it to us to work with.  This is not the right way to teach!  Spending hours trying to figure out where I went wrong only to eventually find out it was the source code (which we weren’t supposed to touch) that was wrong, was a colossal waste of time and incredibly discouraging.  Rares just shrugs this off like the quality of the information we are given shouldn’t matter.

    The lead instructor was mainly unavailable, across the street working for the parent company, taking meetings, or even teaching a different class while we did without.  That’s double-dipping, and Brainstation should know better.

    The TAs tried to be helpful, but it wasn’t enough.  One had the attention span of a gnat, one was too busy babysitting the girls who were flirting with him (for hours on end), and the third didn’t have the training to be able to answer even the most basic questions.  The teacher was rarely in the mood to answer questions.  Waiting for 45mins+ for someone to be available to answer a question was the usual.

    The pacing of the course is uneven.  We raced through HTML, CSS and Javascript, then pretty much stopped dead while the teacher was teaching the other class.  Each lesson was dictated at lighting speed so most of the students didn’t even try to keep up.  We just had to teach ourselves via Google after our teacher or TA stopped talking.  They have no presentation skills.

    Most weeks there is a “guest speaker”.  I put that in quotes because every single speaker worked for Konrad Group, so they weren’t really guests.  One week they brought a female developer all the way from the Costa Rica office to talk about being a woman in tech.  They couldn’t find a female developer in Toronto?  Hmm.  The single freelancing talk was taught by our lead instructor who told us he only worked freelance long enough to build up a portfolio and get a job.  The company doesn’t know anyone who actually chooses to work freelance?

    The website used to brag about the classroom being in the midst of industry professionals.  It isn’t.  It’s across the street in an old building they haven’t finished repairing yet.  There is no heat, the floor shakes like the building is falling down, the plumbing isn’t hooked up right, and the brick walls are held up by wooden shims.  But the design has won awards!  LOL

    There is zero job search support.  Only a couple job ads were posted on the Slack channel before it became a ghost town.  These were not for companies that Brainstation has any connection with, but just ads somebody saw.  The interview preparation consisted of a slide deck prepared by Konrad Group for their own hiring purposes.  We were promised a copy but never got it.  There were mock interviews conducted by Konrad Group which consisted of, “Show me your project,” and “What is…” (simple questions of general programming knowledge which we hadn’t actually been taught).  Useless.

    Konrad Group/Brainstation exists in a bubble.  They don’t bring in other companies to speak, they talk about themselves exclusively, and they don’t care if we get hired by anyone other than them (as TAs or interns, never as web devs).

    The consensus among the grads from my cohort is that we were ripped off.  An immersive course is better than nothing, and better than studying on your own, but for $8000, we did not get our money’s worth.

    Hi there, 

    We appreciate your feedback. There have been changes made to our full-time programs over the years. We are constantly iterating and improving content with the help of some of the most innovative organizations in the world, and our full-time Web Development program is now a designated diploma program designed to give students the real-world programming and development skills they need to be successful in the field. 

    Our full-time diploma programs are immersive, challenging, and fast-paced to replicate the experience of working in a professional web development setting. Our educators and TA’s are there to offer support, extra help, guidance, and real-world insights to students - ultimately preparing them for a career in development. 

    The full-time programs do bring in guest speakers, but they come from a range of organizations–just last week there were three guest speakers brought in from IBM. The full-time programs try to bring in professionals from innovative technology companies, and many of these organizations host tech tours for the students as well. 

    Our career support program is a chance for full-time students to get help with resumes, cover letters, attend networking events, present their projects to hiring partners, and participate in mock-interviews. Career support is ongoing, so don’t hesitate to reach out to our student experience team at contact@brainstation.io to see how we can offer continued support. We would also like to hear from you to talk more about your experience and to help improve it.

    I enrolled in BrainStation Data Science part time course to learn Python. It was a great experience. Instructor Colin and Ahmed were very resourceful and helpful. 

    Course material covers a broad area of Python. I found the first three classes are a bit challenging since I had no expericence in Programming, and most of my classmates had some computer science background. After some crushing learning time by my own, I was more comfortable in the next couple of classes. 

    The pratices are beyond the course mateirals, which will encourage the students to learn by themselves during their spare time. It could be hard in the beginning, but if you are motivated, and keep learning, it should be ok in the end. 

    I'm a bit older than most of my classmates, who were in their early 20s, which on positive side gave me a lot of energy.

    I would suggest this course to someone who has some degree of programming knowledge. 

Thanks!
