    I have been working at Code Fellows part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Fantastic staff - Reasonable hours and pay

    Cons

    None that I've seen, it's a stepping stone position for those finished the bootcamp so the pay isn't super high but that is to be expected.

    I have been working at Code Fellows full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Code Fellows really stands behind their messaging. One of the required readings when I got hired was 'The Growth Mindset' and we spend time at every meeting talking about ways to embrace a growth mindset. Mistakes are embraced as a took for learning and feedback is encouraged at every level. I love working for this company. My core beliefs align so well with what they believe.

    Cons

    It can be emotionally draining to work with stressed out students all day every day. They need your support and empathy and that can take a toll.

    Great benefits and unlimited PTO, they don't micromanage your time and give you many opportunities to affect change including adding to the curriculum.

    Pros

    Outstanding flexibility transitioning to work from home plus highly supportive and transparent leadership make Code Fellows a great place to work. Workflows and culture are highly modernized in keeping with general tech industry trends.

    The usual drawbacks to joining a smaller org are present, including high workload. Obtaining subject matter expertise and collaborative time from peers can be a challenge, although staff is highly supportive on all fronts with the resources available.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Code Fellows full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great community. All the staff at Code Fellows each has their own unique experience and they are more than happy to share it. Ability to dive into brand new technologies is probably my favorite part about the company. They keep up to date with the newest trends, and allow you to dive into those trends to share it with the students. It keeps me, as a developer, up to date, while not missing out on industry work. Supportive management. I am always able to turn to my managers when there are issues and we always work on a solution. Code Fellows does not micromanage their employees. The ability to learn from and be exposed to adults from all backgrounds to teach them software development.

    Cons

    Teaching a class has it's stressors, and sometimes prepping can overflow into your personal hours. This is only when first starting to teach, after an iteration or two, you begin to have a better work/life balance.
