"A great experience for someone who loves to code but hasn't had time to dive in."

I have mostly good things to say about General Assembly with the caveat that you have to know what you are getting into before you know you will benefit from the course. Which can be difficult to do if you don't know what you don't know. As you'd expect... Read More

The instructors were all helpful. Each of them in their own way and certain students seemed to gravitate towards one type of instruction over another, but everyone was motivated to help me learn and get what I wanted from the program.

The curriculum itself felt very flexible and like it was being updated frequently.

As far as job support I don't have much to compare it against, but I've been happy so far.

"Insightful and Incredible"

This course was amazing. It was a great way to meet current product managers and hear from their insights into the role. I was the least experienced person in my cohort but it was definitely an advantage to learn from so many people who are industry experts.... Read More

"Good refresher program"

This program is definitely not for novices. It moves VERY fast and will definitely take additional hours of review. It did not prepare me for a career transition. It should be more like 6 months for students to really be comfortable with the material

"Job outcomes statistics are made up"

You still learn some things along the way of bootcamp, but don’t get an understanding of deeper concepts. Once you get to interview, you bump. Interview preparation is not covered at all. Job search support is a joke, they might mention referrals and... Read More

"overall a good course. Glad I took this course to expand my skills."

The best parts of this class were the instructors and classmates. Because of COVID I took this class online, but I would have preferred to have taken this class in person but that was obviously not possible.
The instructors though did a really good job... Read More

"Fire hose of information"

You learn a lot. The instructors are awesome and want you to succeed, but with only 12 weeks, 4 of which are devoted to just working on projects, they have to blast you with a fire hose of information. Upon graduating, I realized there was actually quite... Read More

"A solid overview in UX design, not worth the price tag"

Don't get me wrong, I learned A LOT, but $15,500 is so much money. I'm not sure if it was worth it because I don't have a job yet.

I know I could have taught myself all of the curriculum, but to be honest, that would be difficult and take me much longer... Read More
