Great Training Place after all
This place has challenge me enough to transform my mindset for success in tech world and got me ready by equipping me with all the current tools and technologies with in short period of time, and helped me through every steps of my career. can't be grateful enough that I made the choice to join them regardless of all these negative reviews people said about this place. At the end of the day, It all depends of what you're looking for in Life. I'd recommend a place like Revature for anyone who wants to get their foot into tech industry but has no prior experience.

Great company
I really like being part of Revature's unique business model that succeeds in launching technology careers for so many, every day. The work culture is great and really does celebrate diversity and inclusion. With rapid growth there are some bumps in the road, but also a lot of opportunity for growth. Revature offers great work/life balance and I enjoy being part of this team.

Providing Life Changing Opportunities
What I enjoy most about working at Revature is that we are changing people's lives for the better every day. It's so rewarding to hear from our associates that they went from not even being able to secure an interview to now having a solid technology career in an industry that will continue to grow for decades to come (not many industries can say that).

Since it is a growing company, the workplace culture is open and collaborative. Because of that, the transition to working remotely during the pandemic has been pretty smooth. There are also the usual growing pains but nothing out of the ordinary.

Decent place to start
Training is good and a good way to get your foot in the door. Not a long term solution unless you want to teach or work with the movement of contractors some how but good for what it is

Last Resort Only
Revature will train you and hold that training over your head until you are done with the contract ($20,000 to breach which one of my roommates ended up paying to take another job). The only benefit is that I learned technologies that will look good on my resume in the future.

I had to move three times across many states, they gave $500 for two of these moves and a $500 advance for one. You have no choice in where you land or with what company you end up with.


Some people end up with a good client, others don't. I ended up with a client that would be fighting among themselves on business calls with other contractors, and it was a complete mess. Work culture under the client and Revature was toxic and you are paid far below industry standard. They cut benefits and salary to you and every chance. I feel like 2 years of my life were hijacked and I regret ever signing on.

Training then shackles
Thrown into a high cost of living area they don’t deem high COL, zero to negative quality of life for 2 years. They do not care about you. At least two years of experience for a good job after? No, contracted out to do QA work, little respect, NOT development/engineering, good luck explaining substance on a resume. The training has the potential to be the equivalent of an accelerated masters degree if you’re a quality student, limited to personal gain, make of it what you will.
Pros
Training has potential if you let it, decent pulse on market, way above masters degree content.
Cons
Your life may go backwards, fast, for two years. You are a product they sell, they do not care about you.

Last resort only
The training bootcamp offered by Revature was great. As a whole the company leaves a lot to be desired, between the lack of proper communication to the Forced relocation with little to no help it was a truly disappointing experience. For a person just starting out in the tech industry the pay they offer you would be fine if you are single and living at home but that wont happen. To keep the job you will have to relocate to where they want to place you. You will have to fend for yourself and with the lower salaries they offer you may have a very tough time.
If you really need a job and don't mind moving around go for it but if you want a stable job close to home look for better options.

Revature did change my life
Revature changed my life, yes. And somewhat for the better. There were many rough times, but overall, Revature propelled me in the direction that I wanted to go in, career-wise. I learned a lot of real workplace technologies and got to meet many new friends. I learned a lot at the company they chose me to work for. It is not easy, but it was worth it. Management and HR at Revature could be difficult, but overall, they were extremely helpful. The percentage compensation Revature takes from your paycheck seems absurd at first, but after 2 years, you will be compensated fairly. Overall a decent experience and I don't regret investing in it.

Helps for new coders
Revature training camp helped me out a lot in understanding a true coding culture that I have not known about before. Not only it did I learn about the environment, I also learned about many different languages used.

Overall - great concept and program - not a great company
see above - not a good structured company - good idea, good thoughts but poorly run and managed. Very tricky to know what is going on at any given time - not trustworthy

Great intro into IT industry, did not always follow through - multiple false promises
Great intro into IT industry, did not always follow through - multiple false promises made. Was trained to be a Systems Admin and graduated as a Software Engineer, yet only to be offered Help Desk positions when I was promised to have a leg up because of my training and would be allowed to skip that those beginner level jobs and would be meeting with top rated fortune 500 companies only. Not the case for my batch and I.

Company that locks new grads in predatory contract
I did two years with Revature. You are locked in a two year contract where you are paid $50k/year with no ability to negotiate a higher salary. You have no say on where or with whom you are placed. If you quit your contract, Revature can come after you for $20k for their bootcamp training. The training lasts 10 weeks and is largely self-taught. Most of the trainers are former software developers with no prior teaching experience (the training is not worth $20k). You literally can be placed in a lead developer position or in a non-software developer role for two years and just have to tough it out for two years.
Cons
minimal pay for relocation, no say on where you work, $20k penalty for quitting

We're sorry to hear of your experience but appreciate the feedback. We're continuing to work hard to ensure that our salaries are competitive, which is why we're offering a 15% pay increase from year one to year two. This pay increase not only exceeds industry standards but also acknowledges their hard and excellent work.

Respectfully, we don't force anybody into a two-year agreement. We offer ten days where potential employees have the opportunity to get paid, train, and learn if Revature is the best avenue to advance their career. The mutually beneficial agreement allows us to invest in the growth and development of our employees while providing them with job stability.


Thank you again for your feedback, and we hope you've found success.

I have been working at Revature full-time (Less than a year)
I joined Revature fresh out of college. They have a good process in place for hiring. The initial screening was hard to get in, but once you are in they take care of you from training to placement. Good work culture and environment. Good compensation to start your career. I recommending Revature to friends.
Pros
Work/Life balance, Employee friendly
Cons
Little more technology training would be better

A great jump start to a career in software development
Great company especially for people who want to transition their careers or need more training and help with an entry level software engineer position.

Free training is definitely a plus but it's hard work. It was understandable because there's just way too many topics to cover within a 16 week period. Social life went out the door during training but in the end it was all worth it.
Pros
Great training, great jump start to a career, a whole team searching for jobs for you, free/paid training
Cons
Long hours, difficult training, made a little less than typical entry level developer

Ok for starting out
They do offer training and find you a job but you are locked in a 2 year contract with consequences when you break it. HR is pretty lackluster with their response time.

Look elsewhere for work
You do not want to work for this company. They will refuse to pay you for hours worked, will force you to move across the country with as little as a week's notice, and will not respond to your questions for HR. Training last 10-12 weeks, then you are forced to work for them for two years, no matter where in the US they tell you to move.
