CPL/ME/IR..does it matter where one does it?

Hello fellow professionals, i have a CPL/ME/IR question, and wanted to ask for your views mainly from those who are in the field of a professional pilot or those who have just finished their training, Do airlines/recruiters care where one does their training e.g UK vs Eastern Europe? As in does it reflect when applying to airlines as a newbie/low hr FO ?

I've looked around and noticed that it can be done as cheap as under 17k in some eastern european countries and it can also be done as highly as 50k plus in the UK.
I'm choosing between Bartolini (Poland) or Diamond Academy (Sweden), as i am debating between these two schools, thus would appreciate replies from those who went to either of these school and list their negatives/positives from their time at the school and if they could go back and start the training again would they apply there again or what would they do differently if they started the course..

Before you spend your money, visit those establishments on your short list.

Speak to the staff, but more importantly the customers who are on the courses.

Unless you have a trusted friend who has recently completed their training at the ATO and can recommend it.

Ensure that you have a valid class one medical before parting with any course fees etc.

I have had a few friends who have went to Diamond in Sweden and they now all have airline jobs. Some with Flybe, some with TUI. It did not seem to be a problem for them.
