General Assembly provides its employees with the opportunity to keep getting better. Its full time employees can take any part-time course or workshop for free and even have the opportunity to teach workshops and classes on their own. A social, friendly culture, employees play the roles of both students and instructors in the classroom and share intimate workspaces with their teams and colleagues.
General Assembly’s traditions are uniquely multi-layered within departments. Besides company-wide weekly team lunches, individual teams have favorite quirky work rituals. The Product and Engineering Teams gather once a quarter for Dev Fest—a week long onsite conference that includes lightning talks and a hackathon. Individuals across teams also participate in extracurriculars outside of work like GA Soccer and jam sessions.
