    Pretty much a scam

    The module curriculum was pretty good for what you could fit into a few months, although the free Odin Project is better if you are self motivated and can teach yourself. There is no way it is worth $17,000, and I assume the job placement numbers are massaged or falsified. They let in almost anyone, and I would estimate anywhere from 33%-75% of my class will never get a software engineering job. Most people had zero knowledge going in. Many did not seem to take it that seriously or work ...

    Flex Program is not Flexible enough

    I joined Flatiron as a part of their Flex program for Software development. 

    Pros : Course content for the time I was on seemed organized

    Cons : I joined the flex program because i was in a full time job with kids. I joined the program based on flexibility and during the time i was on had a job change due to which i could not commit to the corsework. I asked for extension multiple times, but they mentioned since it was a flex program, i had flexibility. However, they emaile...

    Admissions Cybersecurity Engineering

    Applied for the Deloitte Career Advancement Program. I received an email stating that I need to take an admissions assessment. Requested a copy of the assessment and I was told it was not part of the admissions process. Confused already. Then I was told not to apply online to the Deloitte website. So why is the opportunity listed on several job boards? Sketchy. Then I received an email redirecting me to apply for another program at Flatiron from the same admissions person. If the admissi...

    Awful

    I am so profoundly disappointed in Flatiron School that I am considering full scholarship tuition for people to attend a different school. My company and I will do just that.

    Waste of time

     I attended their online program 3-4 years ago. Unfortunately, I have to agree with those students who say their program didn’t teach the basics well enough. After much struggle I had to leave the program prematurely because I could just not keep up!  The majority of my time was spent on trying to find tutorials or additional information (Google/ Youtube) trying to grasp a basic understanding of the material so I can keep up with what they were teaching me. I asked for additio...

    Please don't

    Don't think of this as an college education, this is a pure form of business. The first thing you should know is that there is "no money back", engrave that to your brain. Second you need to work your butt off after finishing the course, i mean u really need to do a lot of supplement study which in my opinion make the course itself useless.   I will admit that i only got my job because one of my good friend - i would had gotten this job with or without flatiron, my friend didn't even ask...

    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".

    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...
