Pros: Kitchen, great staff, awesome web technologies
Cons: Super intense; pace can be ovewhelming
General Assembly is a tradeschool for web development that is as creative and diverse as it is intense. Every day you learn new web technologies. The staff is very helpful and cool; the atmosphere is very intense although people are open and helpful. Full kitchen to play around in.

Great learning environment
Freelance Web Developer (Former Employee), New York, NYMarch 7, 2015
Pros: free coffee
General Assembly gave me the opportunity to be challenged with the necessary hurdles every programmer encounters when starting their path to efficient app development. Deciding which concepts of a programming language to learn first is more like creating a new language that doesn't exist than learning one. With the guidance of a structured curriculum, I immersed myself in understanding the high level concepts and abstractions of web framework.

Waiting and looking
Press Operator (Current Employee), Warren, MIJanuary 10, 2015
I wait for parts to come off the press, inspect them for any defects and if they are good I pack them. If needed I talk to my supervisor to have him make changes to the press to ensure parts are good.

"Twelve weeks. All day. Every day." That is the motto at General Assembly's WDI (Web Development Immersive) program. For 12 weeks, Monday through Friday, 9AM to 5:30PM we code and develop web applications with relevant industry technologies. With a focus on Ruby on Rails, AngularJS, HTML, CSS/SCSS, Javascript, Mongodb, and PostgreSQL to name a few, we leave ready to introduce ourselves to the tech world and take on all it has to offer and solve any bugs along the way.

OPERATIONS & MARKETING (Former Employee), San Francisco, CANovember 23, 2014
Startup feeling and culture, nice people but unfortunately unorganized overall, no team inclusion between tiers, extremely poor communication, no motivation to promote within, under paid employees for the amount of work/time put in.

Working very good work environment
general assember (Former Employee), Mishawaka, INOctober 14, 2014
Pros: it was fun to work in the automotive assembly plant
Cons: being laid off from that good job was a big con
Start your day by setting yourself up with the parts needed

I Learned how to work in a fast assembly work environment

Management was very good to work with

It was also great working with the coworkers

The hardest part was when a prototype come through with all the engineering

Making a good wage and good benefits made the job very enjoyable
