    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...

    Flatiron was the best decision of my adult life

    If you have no prior tech experience and are looking to make a jump in your professional life, Flatiron is the place to start. It was stressful and a lot of work, but if you have the time and resources to commit for 15 weeks I am confident that you will come out an incredibly desirable job candidate for a variety of positions across the tech industry. I was able to land a job on a government contract with a starting salary of $90K in less than two months of graduating, more money than I ...

    It Works But It's Not Easy...

    This bootcamp can change your life, but be ready devote your entire life to it for 15 weeks (and more). Having done my research, I believe this to be one of the more well-rounded, comprehensive DS curriculums out there. As great as this sounds, more learning material = more hours. Period. Be ready to spend well beyond 40 hours per week learning concepts, practicing code, completing projects, and blogging. Be aware that the bootcamp's standards for passing each module and graduating are l...

    NOT FOR BEGINNERS

    If you are looking to start a career in Software Development do not start here! Look into other programs that teach the basics. I was informaed that Flatiron would be able to go from where I was (beginner) to being "job ready" by the end of the course... for me this was not accurate. Majority of my time was spent on Google/ Youtube trying to find tutorials or additional information to grasp a basic understanding on what they were teaching me. I asked for additional support such as a tutor/...

    Tough Prep Work and Application Process, but excellent staff

    I recently got into Flatiron's Engineering Immersive course. I had researched other courses and found Flatiron to be the best fit. Beware the prep work before the interview is about 100 hours. Once you pass your technical interview, which is where you show the code that you used to solve one of their labs in the interview prep work. You explain how you got that answer, and then pair code with your interviewer. They got back to me promptly that I got in. Once you get in there is another 100...
