    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Next Jump full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    literally none... maybe just leaving was easy and my experience has taught me what not to become as an employee and colleague

    Cons

    - terrible location, had to often ask homeless people to move to access the front door and twice saw people urinating on the door, if you can't feel safe in your place of work you need to really reassess your job (which is what i did!!) - there is a dire lack of communication between teams, a hierarchy between full-time staff and temp, workplace harassment (email and online chat threads making jokes about the... staff, actively excluding some staff from events and meetings) - the pay is an insult considering the education requirements, you are better off working in retail for better hours and job satisfaction

    Advice to Management

    - answer your teams emails by EOD, if you can't reply to an internal comms within the day when you are in in office, reconsider your position - don't exclude your staff from meetings and activities based on whether they are full time or temp - don't have work email and slack groups which engage in workplace harassment or bullying - reassess what you want from your staff and engage in some respect to your... new-comers, it isn't difficult to be a nice person

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Next Jump full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    As well as decent compensation and very competitive perks (including some very unique ones - trips to NY, weekly laundry service), the main pros are around Next Jump's investment in you, and the career progression opportunities offered. The level of trust and ownership you will be given is huge, but with a robust support system in place to enable to accelerate your growth and learning. Everything in the company is... geared towards bettering you as an individual, and there are so many initiatives baked in to day-to-day life as a Next Jumper which enable you to do so. A true meritocracy, where you will get out what you put in.

    Cons

    With a lot of responsibility comes downsides. You will need to be ambitious and have true perseverance at times to succeed. Rapidly accelerating your personal and professional development is not always easy (although comes with great reward), but if you're not bought into this development, Next Jump may not be the place for you.

    I worked at Next Jump full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - There's a real community feel around the company. Every employee, from junior to more senior level, is interested in helping with your own personal development. - Opportunities for rapid career development if you're willing to put the work in and are proactive in seeking and onboarding feedback on your work. - Really liked the idea around having both business and cultural responsibilities. Culture is an... opportunity to practice new things and also learn more about yourself in the process - this can then be applied to your business role. - A lot of perks and benefits - such as breakfast, laundry service, and evening meals if you need to stay late to complete some work.

    Show More

    Cons

    - Work-life balance is often difficult to maintain. - Sometimes critical feedback can come across as aggressive rather than constructive. - At times, your cultural responsibilities can feel very executional as opposed to an opportunity to experiment and practice on aspects of your personal development. - As the company focuses on your personal development, Next Jump may not be the place for you if you're not... willing to be open and vulnerable about your personal life and experiences.
