"I could never recommend GA."

TLDR,
The bottom line is I could never recommend GA or their software engineering immersive because the course for me was just teachers and all running around like chickens with there heads cut off.

Pros,
- You meet other classmates doing the same thing... Read More

Cons,
- Very little support
- No real hiring potential by going through GA vs anywhere else (Like other students got a job at said company and the employers thought it was a great hire and would love to hire more GA graduates, thats not really much of a thing)
- Teachers don't answers questions. (big one in my opinion because I joined the bootcamp to learn and understand what's going on not just be some attack dog that can only do what's in front of them)
- Recordings of the class were all deleted two months after the course when they explicitly said they would up for 6 months.
- All the teachers are burnouts from other parts of the industry and it's not a good atmosphere
- Constant surveys you have to fill out for them, 2-3+ a day sometimes.
- The class is only really 9 weeks long because 3 of those weeks are taken off to work on your own and make a project, were you get almost no help.
- Costs 15k
- Job support is pretty much non existent unless your have a specific question
- They say they don't do grades, but they do. They grade all your stuff like 9 out of 10 etc. and even one day in class a girl was having loads of problems with what we were going over so she asked for help and the teacher was just like na I have to go grade projects.
- Also the teachers are late a lot, have babies in class etc. (this was almost an everyday thing and maybe they're just not paying there employees enough if they can't afford babysitters?) and it just makes everything so much more stressful then it needs to be.

"What an utter joke - your projects aren't even reviewed"

They clearly don't know how to work during the pandemic (I very much hope that they didn't operate like this before Covid...).

I went to an open evening in November 2019. They absolutely sold it to me then- dedicated tutors who were 'veterans' in the industry,... Read More

Teachers seem to get annoyed when students asked too many questions or were challenging. But would often say 'please ask me questions so you can make the most out of your money'. During one full week project, the teachers wouldn't even come on zoom calls to help us debug our code and told us off again for not asking for help.

The last module - Python, Django and PostgreSQL should be omitted from the programme as it only reflects how well students can copy and paste code to fulfil a project with a backend in a different language. They clearly only do this to bulk out their technologies and languages taught during the course. The teacher barely even knew Python and was googling most the answers. Some students were even correcting them. Otherwise, surely they should get a data science instructor to each us fundamentals in Python. General Assembly's excuse to that is by week 10 there's no shame in googling for the answer as that's also industry standard. And I completely agree, but at £9,000 you would expect the tutor to be knowledgable in that language.

Another massive joke is that we had to deploy two of our big projects by ourselves with absolute MINIMAL help. After the course finished Herkou was no longer supporting the backend to one of our projects. We've not heard from the instructor how to redeploy. This proves that once you've finished there's no support. How can they charge £9000 and not help with the most inciting thing - deployed projects.

I was fed lies when I reached out to a higher up to voice my dissatisfaction, and the person always turned the conversation around to ask how they could help support me. Their answer was because I was apparently one of the top students, they thought I was doing ok, but to make me feel better and gain more support I would have 1-1 with the lead instructor to help me improve. This meeting never happened.

They make you jump through so many hoops to become 'job seeker ready' by then a lot of people drop out so aren't accounted in their outcomes statistics. You're pretty much on your own when it comes to the job search, and nowhere in the contract does it clearly state after x amount of days you can ask for your money back.
