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

    Pros

    Easily the best team I've had the opportunity to work with. A lot of long tenured clients going back as far as 8+ years . NPS scores from clients consistently 9+/10 with several referrals coming in. I've seen increasing levels of training coming in to the team which is great. And we've built a pretty cool culture of transparency and trust (shout out to Ray Dalio!) Not for talkers /complainers --the team has a...

    Cons

    if you're not comfortable being called out on your ideas or statements or stating what you think clearly, this may not be a place you'll be happy at. If you thrive on challenge and debate and growth then you'll like it.

    Advice to Management

    looks like we are ramping up our marketing this year which is great to be a part of - keep it up (I'm excited to take part in the video series !)

    I have been working at Jumpfactor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Very strong core values that encourage radical transparency. There are no politics. No hidden subtexts. No playing favourites. Just your proposals and your evidence, in a free market of ideas. A dream environment for a data-driven marketer - Leadership that listens to concerns, iterates frequently on process, and actively benchmarks team happiness and satisfaction. In short -- leadership that holds themselves accountable....

    Cons

    - Expectations are quite high (but not unrealistic). - There's no hiding laziness here. Because of radical transparency and a focus on incremental improvement, this is not a place to "coast by" and chill. If you're looking for a typical 9 - 5 where you can come late, leave early, and spend half the day on Reddit -- this job WILL NOT BE FOR YOU. Only apply if you want to put in the effort to improve yourself and your...

    Advice to Management

    - I'd love to see our logo up on the reception wall. I know it's coming -- but it can't get here soon enough. I want to take some photos for my LinkedIn page :P - More frequent VTO updates and reviews would be helpful to maintain a north heading on everyone's compass. We can sometimes get lost in the weeds of day-to-day activity, forgetting the fundamental "why" of major initiatives.

    Pros

    Incredible team and learning on many different accounts. Mentoring from team leads and CEO is a bonus. Great culture and major focus on improving things - even small things from the food ordered for the team to the improvements in training. I love that there were constant surveys to get feedback from the team. I found the company has higher end clients as compared to typical agencies . Many of them seem to be high...

    I worked at Jumpfactor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Tonnes of learning from an amazing team of high caliber digital marketers. You're surrounded by people who keep learning and sharing ideas. Everyone is looking to improve and become the best at their craft. The team has clearly been brought together based on very specific criteria. Strong structured system of execution for clients. I can see that clients get a lot of value from the team and there's a high trust factor...

    Cons

    Lot of systems and technology used. If you're not comfortable learning new platforms and keeping up, you'd probably find it a bit overwhelming.

    Advice to Management

    Continue promoting team members and investing in training . It's working.

    Pros

    Everyone's birthday is acknowledged with cake.

    Cons

    As a warning to anyone coming across these reviews, the positive ones are very clearly either written or encouraged by the CEO and are not in the least bit accurate. Anything promised to prospective or even current employees should be marked with an asterisk as there is always an excuse or plain disregard for why these set expectations never come to fruition. The foundation of this company has been built on empty promises...

    Pros

    The people make the company, though the length they stay is typically under a year.

    Cons

    You will be promised whatever you want to hear to entice you to join the company, only to find that you will not receive these opportunities, nor will they ever be brought up again once you start working. The same goes for bonuses / pay incentives. Good luck getting a chance to go over your performance with the CEO. Speaking of which, the CEO is very ambitious which is admirable but initiatives will be rolled out...

    I worked at Jumpfactor full-time

    Pros

    There are a few great people who work here, but turnover is high and no one stays around for longer than 6 months to 1 year.

    Cons

    Everything will be promised and nothing will come true. You'll be promised the moon to get you to stay, only to realize that those promises will never be fulfilled. This is particularly terrible when you are lied to during the interview process, only to be promised over and over again that you'll have to wait until next quarter. Should mention all these fake reviews. There is no growth opportunity. There is no investment...

    Pros

    Although I'm fairly new to Jumpfactor, I've been able to quickly feel like this is a place I will likely stay for a long while. My team is extremely supportive. Everyone is willing to provide help and the company assists by running learning and training sessions almost every week. There are a lot of very talented individuals working in the company. Even though the company is growing rapidly and the management can...

    The leadership and focus on employees and team members is awesome! We get constant feedback, our ideas and inputs are heard in 1-1s as well as in surveys. And transparent updates are shared with the company every 2 weeks. I know exactly where the company is going and what opportunities exist. The extreme focus on core values here is something I'm so proud to be a part of. There is no company I've been at where there...

    Not much worth mentioning. We are hiring aggressively as the agency is growing and there are still roles which need to be filled , but this is typical from what I've seen with high growth firms. I like that it's controlled growth.

    Keep doing what you are !

    I work with some very talented colleagues and it's inspiring to see the team growing together. Management is putting in a lot of effort in hiring great people. I enjoy my team and my work, which is something that was lost in my last company. There's a focus on creating a transparent workplace, and a commitment of the leadership team to always improve . The open environment and the fact that the management is constantly...
