    I came to BrainStation with a background in finance and my goal was to get a better understanding of how teams within digital businesses (Design, Marketing, Operation, Engineering) work together to bring ideas to market. The hands on experience I got being guided by top industry professionals in modelling my own market opportunity and finding product market fit was top notch. 

    By the end of the class I felt more confident in my abilities to speak the language of digital and better evaluate digital businesses. 

    Another really interesting aspect of the course were the students I got to work with. They came from a variety of backgrounds which made for a dynamic environment with many view points and opinions. Also made for an interesting group of student presentations. Highly recommened this course as an intro to how the digital product development process.

    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.

    After going through Wyncode, It definetly was not worth the 10k. After graduating I enrolled in a Udacity nanodegree course and graduated after 2 months. My current employeers were way more impressed with the work I did in my nanodegree program. The job support I received with Udacity actually helped me get my current position. It is strange that Udacity offers money back after 6 months if you are not hired but Wyncode won't do that. I would love to get that 10k back to be honest. Waste of good money and time. I do not reccomend. its a good course but worth around $700 to be honest. I urge you to try something else.

    Dear Wyncoder,

    Thank you for your feedback! Udacity is one of our out-of-state hiring partners and we're happy to tout three Wyncode graduates who have been hired there with one right after the program. In fact, those graduates have been instrumental in the creation of the Ruby nanodegree. 

    We're happy that you were able to finish the nanodegree in two months, which is faster than the average completion of six months to a year. It's unfortunate that you feel the nine-week program did not attribute to your success with that curriculum. 

    Also, we're confident that the web immersive is more than just a curriculum that teaches beginners how to build web applications. Wyncode is a community of individuals, including you, who are looking to broaden their opportunities while developing a new skill set and investing themselves in the burgeoning South Florida ecosystem.

    As far as job support, we've successfully placed graduates in over 80 companies with over 30 hiring more than one, five of which have hired more than five. Considering your experience as a Wyncode graduate, it makes sense that the Udacity nanodegree would make you a more exceptional candidate. We also encourage our graduates to continue learning beyond the web immersive and it's great to hear that you've done that.

    Best of luck in your current role and know that we're happy to have you part of the Wynfam!

    Thanks,

    Matt Campbell, Director of Admissions at Wyncode Academy

    Overall Experience:

    Job Assistance:

    A lot of people chose Wyncode because of their 90% placement in 90 days. After their own audits we now know the truth behind that. Many people are still looking for work. Many people had to go back to their old lives and even move back to where they originally lived before moving here with the hopes of finding work. 

    Saying that Wyncoders graduate and go to work in Tech, isnt a stretch. But with that said, they are not coding. Lots of people graduating Wyncode are taking jobs with companies doing things other than coding. 

    Wynwork (job placement) sessions are depressing. They ask you if you have any leads, then share them with everyone else, causing that company to get bombarded with applicants. That arent always qualified. 

    Miami tech doesnt really exist as much as they try and sell you. Its the same small group of people. To be honest they arent even that welcoming. If you dont beleive me just go to any "tech event" in Miami and say "hello" to the same 30 people you see at every event. 

    After looking for work for almost over 6 months, I can tell you that Ruby is not hiring here in Miami. They will tell you that so many companies use Ruby, that may be true. But they def. arent hire, and if they are. They arent hiring Jr. Devs.

    With that being said almost no one is hiring Jr devs in Miami. 

    JavaScript, PHP, UX developers is where the work is.

    There arent many negative reviews here because Miami is all about who you know, and people know that if you get blacklisted. Its pretty much over for you. There has actually been talk about class action lawsuit between quite a bit of previous Wyncoders from multilpe cohorts across multiple locations, because of the 90% job placement rating which was their biggest selling point. A lot of people took out loans and are paying them back and honestly havent even gotten a single interview after Wyncode.

    Also, telling people that "getting the job is up to you, we give you everything you need to get the interview" is a really crappy way to make people think its their fault they cant find the work. When in reality there is no work. 

    Finally, if any of this sounds far fetched or just someone being bitter. Lets look at the facts, well over 250 people have graduated Wyncode and there are only 118 reviews. If everyone was satisfied with their experience they would have been happy to leave a review, or let alone resond to the audit questions. 

    Response From: Matt Campbell of BrainStation
    Title: Director of Admissions at Wyncode Academy

    Dear Wyncoder, 

    We’re sorry to hear that you’ve been having difficulties finding a role in Miami. The job hunt in any field is difficult but, we would like to make it better for you. We appreciate your feedback and would like to address some of the concerns you expressed. 

    For a long time we wanted to make sure our stats were verified for the benefit of those enrolling in our program and you. So that's what we did this summer. Our recently released independently verified job report will show that 97% of job seeking graduates during 2014-2015 were placed 120+ days after graduation. 188 Wyncoders graduated during that time, and 168 graduates were considered job seeking, defined as actively looking for a role in the 90 days following graduation. Of the 163 graduates who obtained work after graduation, 137 graduates, or 84%, obtained a technical role. A technical role is defined as working as part of, or directly with, an engineering team. Our marketing will be updated to reflect these audited statistics.

    As far as the job market, Wyncode graduates have been hired at over 80 companies, with 30 hiring more than one. The majority of our hiring partners are in South Florida and we’ve had five companies hire five or more Wyncode graduates. We continue to host Wynterviews, which introduce Wyncoders to companies looking for hires. There is definitely demand for junior developers and is evidenced by the number of Wynterviews we host every cohort. Students have been hired out of these sessions in the past and it’s also valuable interview practice.

    The WynWork sessions are a means to support students as they continue their job search. The sessions are designed to provide tips, advice, and personal introductions and direct contact with hundreds of local hiring partners. Also, WynWork support is not only offered to help graduates with their first roles, but also their second and third after graduating from the program.

    Wyncode is licensed by the Florida Department of Education and as a result, we are not allowed to promise roles to anyone by law. The job search can be difficult, but as I mentioned, we offer support for students and do the best we can to help place them in tech roles after graduation. The web immersive program is designed to teach individuals the skills necessary to build web apps while also focusing on soft skills, including interview prep, resume prep, and providing connections with South Florida hiring partners. In our over two years of operation, we’ve done just that and our student outcomes are evidence of that.

    Wyncode has the most ratings out of any brick-and-mortar coding bootcamp in the country on Course Report. Considering your logic, none of the coding bootcamps on this site would be legitimate. We’re happy to see graduates leave reviews, positive or negative, because it provides prospective students an opportunity to see what our program has to offer.

    If you’re still having trouble finding roles in Miami, please feel free to reach out and we’ll do our best to support you.

    Thanks,

    Matt Campbell, Director of Admissions at Wyncode Academy

    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.

    Intro

    First, let me say, that I met a lot of cool people who I still keep in touch with and who I had a lot of fun with.  But like a previous reviewer stated, I did not sign up to make friends, I signed up to learn to code and acquire a set of skills that would make me employable. That however did not happen.

    With that out of the way, one of my first issues with Wyncode is with integrity. It seems like they will say anything to get you to signup and give them 10k.  90% placement at 75k is terrible unethical marketing. Not even close to 50% for my cohort.  That was their pitch when I signed up. I've actually considered taking legal action as I'm still stuck paying the loan.  When I was on the fence, they pitched " hurry, only one spot left", so I did, only to see 2 students admitted after our start date.  In the previous cohort they admitted a older gentleman who was unemployable and In our cohort they admitted a student who could not type.  If they could pay they were in.   

    Curriculum:

    I agree with a previous post, if you sign up for code school,($25) and if you read a book each in JS, Ruby, and RoR, ($75) you would have learned more then the curriculum and only for $100!!!  I agree with homework issues stated below, many times you would learn something very dense, only to realize the hw is from yesterday's lecture.  

    Instructor:

    We were basically lab rats with our instructor.  They hired Damon, who while a great coder, was a poor instructor.  He only taught two cohorts and was let go, so that tells you all you need to know.  Meanwhile we are stuck footing the bill for this experiment.  

    Job assistance:

    This is one of the worst parts of the whole program.  You are basically on your own.  Send emails and come to follow ups and talk about it.  The wynterviews, are good, but I think they should probably be longer and allow you to show off a project or two.  In my cohort alone, I would say 75% were not hired and/or no longer coding.  I would also second the email bombarding from Wyncode was a turn off to potential employers, as I had an employer say this to me directly.  

    Summary

    Save your money.  Sign up for codeschool and code academy, read a couple of books, and you'll be fine.  Definitely not worth it.  I would also recommend some project based learning like code4startup or baserails.  These were excellent.  Also like someone mentioned before i would focus on Javascript more, it's barely taught at all at Wyncode.

    We’re very sorry to hear you feel the skills you learned at Wyncode haven’t landed you a job as a developer. 

    A top Miami accounting firm recently completed an independent audit of the job placement outcomes for all students graduating in 2014 and 2015. This report will go live next week and will be accompanied by a web application displaying interactive graphs representing the audited statistics for the 168 job-seeking graduates during that period.

    The job report will show that 97% of job seeking graduates during that period were placed 120+ days after graduation. While we had 188 Wyncoders graduate during that time, only 168 graduates were considered job seeking, defined as actively looking for a role in the 90 days following graduation. Of the 163 graduates who obtained work after graduation, 137 graduates, or 84%, obtained a technical role. A technical role is defined as working as part of, or directly with, an engineering team. Our marketing will be updated to reflect these audited statistics.

    We do not promise that graduates will make a starting salary of $75,000 in South Florida. The statistic posted in our FAQ is a nationwide average, sourced from a recruiting firm that has since updated their site. While we have graduates working throughout U.S. and the world, most of them remain in the region. Our audited average salary statistic will be available in the report next week. 

    Because we are licensed by the Florida Department of Education, if you are concerned about our marketing practices, you’re welcome to contact the Commission for Independent Education at 1-888-224-6684.

    Our admissions process starts with an interview and requires a code challenge. For the third quarter of 2016, only around 40% of the students we interviewed were accepted.

    We believe that an older person can learn to code, but we are also transparent during the admissions process about the challenges that they may face getting employment after the program. 

    We also inform prospective students about what to expect from the program and, due to the rigor of the course, we do not admit students after the start date.

    The Wyncode curriculum is iterated continuously, and the extra week we’ve recently added to the course will allow us to go even deeper into all the topics you mention, including JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and SQL. We’ve also improved on our homework assignments, and are connecting our lectures, homework, and projects to clear objectives to ensure that students are progressing through the program effectively.

    We don’t claim that the topics we’re teaching aren’t available to learn online - cheaply, even for free. Wyncode’s value stems from a structured environment that provides a great foundation for a career in web technology. We teach best practices, we immerse you into a technology work culture, and we connect you to the South Florida tech ecosystem, introducing you to the influencers and hiring partners in this region.

    Damon Davison taught three cohorts for Wyncode. We’re proud of the work he did, but he decided to return to his previous gig as a developer. Our current head instructor in Fort Lauderdale, Auston Bunsen, is a senior developer, former CTO of two companies, and has taught three cohorts with tremendous success. He has also done significant work iterating our curriculum and processes as we look to improve going forward.

    We continue to host Wynterviews, which introduce Wyncoders to companies looking for hires. In addition, we now offer twice weekly WynWork sessions that allow all Wyncoders to get job placement help. We provide this service to all Wyncode alumni for free, and we will continue to do so for as long as we can. We’ll support not only your first job, but your second and third after graduating from the program. We’re extremely proud of the job support we offer, from tips and advice, to personal introductions and direct contact with hundreds of local hiring partners.

    If you are one of the two students in your cohort still seeking employment, we invite you to join us at the next WynWork session so that we may assist you as well.

    For those newly in development, Wyncode helps support people to launch into new careers, especially if you're a south florida local. It was definitely a fun and memorable experience! Still though a price tag that costs an arm and a leg of $10,000 which was SOOOO MUCHH for me, I would probably expect similar education for $5K or something... in terms of actual content, didn't feel like a full-on developer or designer and so much to learn still so a bit bummed out for that but maybe I had too high expectations and yeah wyncode did help me jumpstart everything still and yeah am happy I still got access to the network and for learning about the power and elegance of Ruby on Rails. Pitch day won't be forgotten! Nothing is perfect but take the leap if you're ready :) And if you're not or can't afford it..it will be difficult but you can pull through with right mentorship so yeah keep the hustle going and find local guides to help steer the way! Anything is possible for those committed!

    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. 

Thanks!
