    I worked at Next Jump full-time

    Pros

    Free food Pay is good but it comes at a price (see below) That's it.

    Cons

    Literally everything in the company is a con. The 'managers' (inexperienced bunch of grads) are like high school bullies. They also treat non-fulltimers / temps like fleas and this is condoned by all full-timers no matter how nice they are. Including MDs. When I say everyone talks about everyone 24/7, that is all these children do. They also want to know a ton of stuff about your personal life through what... they call 'PLB'. It's intrusive and probably breaking some parts of the British Law. They believe in 'collective suffering', it's just a bit mental that the company hasn't been under a watchdog investigation. It can really damage your mental health. Their job descriptions are really vague.

    Advice to Management

    Just be nice, decent humans??? It is not hard! Isn't that part of the company's ethos anyway?

    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.

    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.
