    Java Coding Bootcamp - Review

    As you go through life there are key moments that drastically change your course in life, and, for me, the decision to attend  Tech Elevator was one of them.  After more than fifteen years in retail I was treading water in a position that had become just  a job to me, something I had to do to pay the bills.  I had done some work on my own designing a website using HTML, CSS,  PHP and a little Javascript, and I found it fascinating, but lacking direction and support I couldn't see myself ge...

    Java Bootcamp at Tech Elevator

    After several years working in industry (international trade) I wanted to study coding both to add to my skill set and to open up new career paths. Tech Elevator's lead Java instructor, David, brough his extensive career experience into the classroom - he proved to be a great teacher, really devoted, and I felt he truly cared about the progress of our class, often responding to email queries on homework assignments late into the night and early mornings, and also w...

    Terrible

    The pathway program is a series of useless material, which may not be useful if you have prior work experience in literally any field. The program does not prepare you for technical interviews, which is a crucial part of the interview process for tech jobs. The 6 month job assistance offered is limited to meetings with someone from TE, who only provides generic advice. The matchmaking event was not productive, as most employers were not hiring and the few that were required a bachelor's ...

    We appreciate your feedback and are sorry to hear that the career development portion of our program did not meet your expectations. We have a diverse student population with varying backgrounds, and our instruction is based on those new to a tech career.  With over a 90% job placement rate, we typically get positive feedback regarding the Pathway Program curriculum, but of course, are always open to constructive feedback from our students. Please feel free to reach out to alumni@techelevator.com with further comments or suggestions. We would love a chance to offer more value and additional career guidance.

    Worth Every Minute

    At the time of this writing, I graduated 3 days ago. I was a C#/.NET Student at the Cleveland campus.

    I loved my time at Tech Elevator. My classmates were great, the instructors were knowledgable, and the Pathway Director has guided me into 4 interviews and 1 offer. The cirriculum moves extremely fast, which is a good thing. It only took 14 weeks, but I feel confident going into Junior Developer interviews. I've done technical mock interviews with friends in the tech industry, and...

    A big scam

    Where do I start? If you’re deciding on taking the online course and end up getting [name redacted] as your instructor then please run. His instruction is very poor. He does not follow the lecture code he is given by the TE curriculum team and will try and make his own and get lost and confuse you more. If you ask a question then expect everything to be answered but what you asked him..

    The pathway is just a lot of bologna. Day 1 they show you a big slide about ho...

    Team Oriented

    Wonderful experience.  They give you a good foundation on the technical side.  More importantly they prepare you for the team oriented endeavor that is programming today.  You will have to work, and the more you put in the more you get out. 

    Brian is an excellent instructor!

    Harassment and Violation of Conduct

    Women in our class, including myself, have reported some form of harassment and/or violation of student conduct rules by a certain student. Unfortunately no action has been taken and the student is still in the program. This is very disappointing coming from a program with such a high reputation.I feel unsafe and uncomfortable in our building, and not able to be present or focus in the way I would like to be. I am very disappointed that a month has gone by and nothing has come of it.  It...

    Hard But Worth It

    I did a lot of research before enrolling in a bootcamp and I think Tech Elevator is a great choice because of the languages taught and the career help. The bootcamp is very hard and intense but the other students were great to work with and we did a lot of pairs programming which I was skeptical of at first and ended up really enjoying the process. They have matchmaking days with some employers hiring entry-level tech jobs (like development, QA, and tech support roles). A few people from...

    Life Changer!

    It's hard, it's scary, it's stressful, BUT it is completely worth it. You'll meet a lot of other great people learning just like you, and it'll seem like it's impossible to learn all of the stuff in the program, but you just have to trust in the process. It is absolutely a life changing experience. I was skeptical, but after you do a couple of interviews, you'll build that confidence that you truly know your stuff. In the end I had to two offers, and couldn't be happier with where I ende...

    Tech Elevator Was Amazing

    Tech Elevator was an amazing experience that changed the course of my professional career. I came into the program with little idea of what I wanted to do going forward with my life, and I left with direction and the skills to become a professional in the tech field.

    The best bootcamp

    Prior to joining Tech Elevator, when I was deciding on a Bootcamp to attend the two things that set them apart were the Pathway Program and the fact their job placement rate was 90% and that number was updated and checked by a third party each year. The Pathway program completely exceeded my expectations and did more than what I expected. They help you from day 1 until you find a job. They helped us prepare our resumes, practice interviews, taught us how to network and market ourselves a...
