    totally not worth it

    First thing first, if you are self paced don't bother the material on udemy is better.  if you are doing immersive which is all online now, still not worth the price, you are basically paying someone to keep you on track.  You are basically there to do some networking and hoping you can get hire.   The instructors are nice and encouraging but tats about the full extend of it, better off just learn it urself and create a profolio, it is a joke

    Ok Bootcamp - Data Science Immersive Program

    To be more practical and succinct I am going to use bullet points:

    Pros:
    - Good material. You have a lot to learn and not only on the "canvas/learning" website SOME instructors are no-nonsense and give you other websites to practice that are not linked to Flatiron.
    - Nice people. I feel that majority of both students and Flatiron staff are trying their best. To be a nice person and to do what they want to nicely. Some exceptions I will get into in "Cons".
    - Good lectures ...

    Scam

    The school is a complete scam. They take credit for students who find jobs but many of them found the jobs on their own. Career services does nothing. No job connections, just tells you Google is your friend. They do not care if you can barely afford to live as long as they get paid. If you can study on your own then do it. You do not need to spend thousands of dollars to learn how to use Google. If you have a cpmplaint, do not respect a response back. If they do respond they will laugh ...

    UX Design

    I went to Flatiron because I had friends that successfully completed their Engineering program. The UX Design program is much newer so it's still evolving and they're still learning to perfect it as they go on. Some things felt disorganized and scattered but for the most part, it was a really solid experience, I learned a lot and... got a job! It is a lot of work especially post-graduation. It took me 9 months to get a job and it felt impossible at times but if you stick with it, and put...

    Not worth the money

    I basically taught myself everything. The only real positives were critique sessions where I got to see other students' work and get valuable feedback from them. I had some good instructors but halfway through my program, they were let go because they stopped running UX/UI. This was really disjointing and unfair to the students. So you have a pandemic going on and then you are having instructors being swapped out, let go, etc. The online curriculum was sad, I started reading everything d...

    Keep Grinding

    The course experience was great. They give you the tools needed to create and design websites in 15 weeks, which is really incredible. That said, because of the time constraint, major things aren't really addressed: JavaScript Classes, Data Structures, Algorithms - things needed to pass interviews and land jobs. Can't really be too upset, given what you have under your belt when finishing the course. But ,know you'll have to put in just as much work post cohort to land a gig.

    Great people and process

    Attending bootcamp gave me guidance and direction when I was trying to resume my career after a gap. Flatiron has great instructors and their lectures were awesome. Coding challenges and projects helped reinforce the concepts. Career services supported in building resume and tackling interviews. Within 90 days after starting job search , I could land a job as Software Development Engineer II Intern at Audible. i would highly recommend Flatiron to aspiring software engineers.

    They don't give you your money back

    The program was a total let down to be honest.. It was basically learning everything on our own with little to no teaching. For a couple weeks, we didn't even have a teacher. Also, the money back guarantee is a total lie. They will find anything in your "job tracker" to tell you that you don't qualify. I knew it would be hard getting the money back, but they got me on technicalities that were so granular. I highly recommend another program for getting your UX Design Certification. Possib...

    UI DESIGN

    The program was very detailed and an amazing experience. The instructors were always ready and available to help and give constructive feedback. I also loved the phases where we were put into groups and could challenge each other. The curriculum was also very thorough and gave us experiences with what we needed to know as designers. I chose the UI track as I am more passionate about the visual aspect but we were still able to becomes well rounded designers because we still learned all th...

    🚩 ***SCAM ALERT*** : Read before enrolling

    Oh boy...where do I begin.    My recruiter was Madison Delaney and I would sometimes go weeks without hearing back from her. You can't call Flatiron and get a single person on the phone...always goes to voicemail. I'd constantly have to follow up, and it was overall an unpleasant, unprofessional start from the get-go. That should have been the first red-flag.   I payed for the in-person program and received the online program. Flati...

    Web Engineering Bootcamp - Self-Paced

     I did the self-paced boot camp. I was initially required to complete it within 15 months, but Flatiron School offered a three-month extension due to COVID-19. I would've dropped out otherwise because I found a full-time job that consumed most of my time shortly after getting into the program.  The technologies I learned are ruby, ruby on rails, Sinatra, HTML/CSS/Javascript, react, redux, and thunk.  The structure of the program is a...

    UX/UI Student - No Longer Interested in Program/Feel Stuck

    I am currently in phase 2 of the program and I want out. I am in an income share agreement and I feel stuck because I would have to pay it back ASAP if I drop out and I don't make the minimum income requirement right now. I was torn between two fields, this one and data science, and against my better judgment, I chose UX because I didn't have to do any programming. I did some master's level work with data science, and have experience with Python and Pandas, but I had to discontinue becau...
