      Pros

      Friday lunches, travel, dynamic work environment

      Cons

      Very clicky and poor management is a common issue throughout all departments. End of year evaluations (provided by employees) should be taken seriously by senior management.

      Used to be a good place to work, but now there's too much politics

      Pros

      Decent work environment, if you can handle the whole open concept type of seating arrangements. Pay seems pretty good.

      Cons

      Too much politics. Either you're in the group of golden children or you're definitely not. Too many high-level people, yet not very good project management.

      Pros

      Fantastic organizational structure. Management is easily accessible. Colleagues are the best and brightest in the industry. Comfortable working environment allows you to be yourself and not worry about perceptions. Rigorous work ethic all around.

      Very very enjoyable experience

      Pros

      Nice and smart people. Good benefit. The working environment is nice, and I always feel energetic when I was working in the firm.

      Cons

      Jump is already at the top of the HRT industry. So if comparing it within HRT industry I don't think there is any significant cons. But I think there do exist some cons for the HRT industry as a whole, that is the current market is very stable, which means there is less liquidity comparing with before. So the market for HRT is smaller now.

      Great people, interesting work

      Pros

      As an intern, I loved how much was fit into a single summer, beginning with an introduction to finance, followed by an independent research project and concluded with rotations on multiple trading teams. It was easy to learn and work since everyone at the firm was super knowledgeable and friendly. The flatness of the trading teams produces an excellent collaborative work environment. Little to no politics, and everyone has a key role to play.

      Cons

      It it keeps up at the current rate, the firm may growing in terms of number of employees a little too fast, but perhaps it's justifiable.

      Pros

      - awesome culture! casual working environment, everyday is an opportunity to learn and be better - everybody is efficient, knows what they are doing, collaboration is encourage - less grind and more thinking (word hard and be rewarded hard culture) - flat structure, no power plays and everyone is valued for their contribution to the success of the company.

      Cons

      not necessary a con: Jump is not going to hold your hand throughout and define your career path, you have to know exactly what you want and make it happen. you have to be up for the challenge.

      Pros

      I enjoyed working at Jump because of the working environment. I don't think anyone can work for a more laid back and friendly environment. There is room for advancement but you would have to create that path on you own. The management is great!!.

      Cons

      I do not have any Cons as to my employment with Jump. I would definitely work there again if given the opportunity.

      Driven, Kind, and Extremely Successful

      Pros

      Jump operates on a flat management structure and team oriented basis. My experience with leadership is that they were the hardest workers in the company and also some of the most kind. They value hard work, are open to new ideas, and promote a positive work environment. Compensation and benefits were extremely generous. Employees were given ample time off, extremely good benefits, and opportunities for advancement and lateral moves within the company.

      Cons

      Technical orientation in any field creates the opportunity to rely on technical skill sets as opposed to practical understanding of underlying mechanics and fundamentals.
