    It Worked

    I was skeptical and prepared to me taken advantage of, but I have to say the process worked. I did the part-time program and, while it was still fairly grueling, I learned a lot and stumbled through the rest. The pacing did make things tough, but my cohort leads were as helpful as they could be. Their chat support also notably improved as I progressed through the curriculum and they seemed to make changes on that end. The job assistance was really top-notch and that was why I went in the...

    I'll talk about the bad and then the positives. My only complaint is that career services didn't set me up with the right career coach. I had a hunch that maybe the career coach wasn't doing much in helping me get employed. Her means of encouragement and assistance didn't suit me. She was a "critiquer."  I changed my career coach after a year of ineffective coaching and got hired within 3 months. The new career coach spurred me to study harder and boosted my confidence during the intervi...

    Struggles in Data Science

    I took the data science course. It was partially review from undergrad, but I still learned a ton and got way more active experience. It's a huge amount of work, but quite rewarding. The career coaching after taking the course was wildly unpleasant however. They set up extremely unreasonable requirements to prevent you from being able to refund the course if you don't get a job. They also really provided absurdly little guidance as to what kinds of jobs to look into, what level of job to...

    Software Engineering (Part Time)

    Hello, my name is Dmitriy Malayev. I was enrolled in the part-time software engineering course entirely online. I think joining and completing the curriculum was the best decision. My cohort lead and instructor Dakota Lee Martinez a has always been personable, intelligent, experienced, and supportive in every way imaginable. My cohort consisted of about 60 people from various states and were all interesting and respectful. 
    After completing the cohort, my coach Karen Nixon and her tea...

    Well I can't say I didn't enjoy my time. It was what got my through COVID, and my dead end job in Chemistry. I will say you need to be ready to work hard for this. You will have great support networks within the school and through your instructor. The weirdest part was learning so quickly you didn't even know you were learning. Then you start building a project and are all the sudden grasping everything. I had a great time and don't regret a thing.

    Best Decision I Ever Made

    I wanna start this off by saying that I was originally very hesitant to enroll into Flatiron (not because of Flatiron itself but because of the reputations of a lot of other predatory bootcamps). It's also important to note that I enrolled in the data science program so I cannot speak towards it's other programs. Ultimately, I chose Flatiron because it has one of the best reputations of all the bootcamps out there and I am happy to say that all the positive things are 100% true

    Still employed 3 years later

    Upon graduating I had intended to write an extremely in depth review. However, its been 3 years since Ive graduated and I dont remember all of the nitty gritty details.
    I can say, however, that I was one of the first in my cohort to get a job offer. I do not have a college degree, I was not the "brightest" one in my cohort, and my starting salary was on the lower end ($55k), but soft skills start to play a much more important role when it comes job-search time.

    Best Decision I Ever Made

    Coming from a background of dentistry, I knew absolutely nothing about coding. The Flatiron School equipped me with the tools and skills I needed to succeed in this field. Not only were the instructors and staff incredible, but the atmosphere was so wholesome and amazing! I've made incredible friends along the way, and I am forever grateful that I chose to enroll in this bootcamp!

    Don't.

    I write this sincerely as someone who put themselves in unnecessary debt with the hopes of turning my career around. Please, if you are someone who is looking to get into Cybersecurity, please explore your options when it comes to continuing education. Flatiron school is a scam. I am embarrassed to have partaken in the Cybersecurity cohort.

    Hi Joe, thank you for sharing your feedback. At Flatiron School, we pride ourselves in equipping our students with the skills necessary to pursue careers in a variety of tech fields including cybersecurity. We’re sorry to hear that you feel this goal was not met during your experience.


    As with most boot camp programs, we do our best to educate incoming students that everyone’s journey will look different. Some students come in with less experience than others and are still able to excel, although this is not always the case. 


    We agree. “Virtual Happy Hours” don’t cut it, which is why we are planning to offer in-person resources at select campuses, as soon as we can safely do so within CDC COVID-19 guidelines. It’s been a challenging year for many people, but we are happy to announce our plans to reopen campuses here: https://bit.ly/2Sjt8Y4.


    While Software Engineering is our flagship program, we value all of our programs equally and have built them with the same goal in mind - to prepare students with the skills needed to pursue a career in that field. Our Career Services team works with each student months beyond graduation, meeting weekly to help with everything from résumé review to interview prep. We’ve built relationships with hiring managers at top companies across the world, constantly advocating for our grads and helping them get in the door. We are proud to say that Flatiron School grads have gone on to work at some of cybersecurity's most influential and innovative tech companies.


    Student success is our top priority and we will investigate your situation further. If you feel you were not given these opportunities, please feel free to reach out to studentservices@flatironschool.com to continue the conversation. 


    Thank you again for your feedback!

    Excellent program! (caveat: there is some stuff that's most helpful if you're in the US or UK!)

    I attended the part time online Software Engineering Bootcamp with Flatiron last year and had a great experience! Basically, we went through five main modules. Each module involved learning about languages/frameworks through reading written lessons, doing coding labs, having a couple of class meetings a week where our instructor reviewed the content, or showed us bonus content, and at the end, building an app with what we had learned. We also did pair programming every week with other st...

    Preparation & Dedication will result in Success

    Flatiron is an intensive rigorous program that requires your preparation (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Ruby, GitHub) and dedication. The Software Engineering program consisted of 5 Modules in which you built a project at the end of each module. Instructors are incredibly knowledgeable. They support you but they also push you to learn how to go out and find the answers on your own.
