Creative people, bland culture.
General Assembly is a great place to launch your career in technology. There are smart people from all walks of life and a community that keeps you in the loop of all thing tech related in Atlanta. They could use a lot of help from management perspective. Lack of direction, identity, and intergrity keep GA from living up to it's potential.

Great place to learn and grow
General Assembly is a great place to learn and grow. In my profile as a Data Scientist I am having opportunities to work on challenging projects. Most interesting part of my job is to work with peers who are very intelligent and committed to their tasks.

Out standing Boot Camp program.
It is a boot camp immersive program and a little pricey. You better be prepared before you join this Boot camp. I personally like it a lot, I have learned a lot in such a short period of time. You will learn and hands-on practice from using Git/Github tool, javascript, and frontend framework, backend including SQL. and more.

Laid back atmosphere
There are always events and seminars being held at General Assembly's Washington DC location. The campus is located right near downtown with lots of restaurants nearby. The workplace has a laid back but professional atmosphere.

Fun workplace, but lack of diversity
Fun workplace, but lack of diversity, overall great place, nice location. Amazing people and management.
They could do better about making sure the staff is diverse.

It's Pretty Good
The job itself is very easy. I come in, unlock the classrooms, prep them for the day's classes (turn on projectors & TVs), make coffee, etc. Throughout the day I sit at the front desk answering the phone, questions about GA, and directing new students. The new hire training could be better but I've had much worse and I wish I made more per hour.
One of the major pluses is being able to take a lot of classes for free. Would certainly recommend working here.

Great place to learn quickly
I was a UX design student in the 10-week program. Fast paced, but relevant and new info coming out every cohort. The Denver instructor is the best in the company.

I really liked being here. The Dallas office is great and unique. I had a chance to work out of the SF office and both were great. Would recommend this to anyone

Great place to learn
This review is relevant to people who "worked" there as a full time student, rather than as an instructor, recruiter, career service person, or as an other administrative-related position. Being a student is a full time job, and so should be treated as one.

This is an excellent place to learn. It's an inclusive, diverse environment with students and teachers from all walks of life. The experience is focused on helping students learn their chosen field (data science, UX/UI design, software engineering) as well as learning *how* to learn. Students graduating from GA are well-equipped to continue their learning and growth.


Beyond that, there is an excellent career services team whose sole purpose is to help graduates navigate the career change and the job market after completing the course. They conduct webinars, AMAs, and are available for 1:1 meetings, among their many other smaller, yet still important, tasks. Even better, this career team begins working with students on week 1 of the course.

Fun
For those who want to learn in a fast-paced, collaborative environment. People are supportive, but don't expect rainbows and butterflies. You are expected to work hard and have some grit, for sure. Also, you have to learn to be a very, very independent/free thinker, think outside the box, and learn to be confident and regularly speak your mind.
