    I worked at Jumpfactor full-time (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 among the team.

    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

    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 at the expense of employee functionality. No other proper management is in place.

    While I have made some great friends through the company, I'm sad that most if not all have left. Turnover is high, hours are long, and job satisfaction at the company is at an all time low. Any positivity is only maintained by a handful of faithful employees who still believe in this company's direction despite there being none.

    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 in training. No investment in long-term employee happiness. You are constantly micromanaged and burnout is incredibly high.

    Sure, the ambition of the CEO is admirable, but it comes at the expense of every employee. No traction is able to be made, as the company vision is constantly in flux and can change at a whim. There seems to be very little trust and loyalty. Also, there is no management team, and getting a meeting with the CEO - your boss and only supervisor - is very difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Pretend to care about your employees

    I have been working at Jumpfactor full-time

    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 be busy, everyone is very accessible, including. the CEO .

    I also find the quality of clients and accounts I get to work on very refreshing as compared the agency I was at prior.

    Cons

    Not located downtown if you're looking to walk to work from the core.

    Advice to Management

    Looking forward to the new programs being rolled out.

    Pros

    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 has been such a strong ongoing focus on developing and growing team members through cultural alignment and learning.

    Lots of great benefits : Work from home days, upto 5 weeks vacation , learning sessions, social events, and regular office training and learning sessions.

    The company is growing and hitting targets and clients stick around for a long time and seem very happy. They provide high NPS ratings and regularly refer other clients to us. This is not something that used to happen often at the prior agency I worked at.

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are !

    I have been working at Jumpfactor full-time

    Pros

    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 seeking feedback through 1-1 sessions and polls is great. The CEO really cares about everyone's progress and growth.

    Jumpfactor actually pushes and encourages us to learn and develop, and it's usually paid by the company.

    The regular team outings and socials combined with all the new in office learning sessions are refreshing.

    Cons

    my commute is not as short as I'd like but the work from home days help

    Advice to Management

    keep it up. excited about the new hires coming to support the growth.

    I have been working at Jumpfactor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Challenging cutting edge work, free lunches, paid social events, great benefits and very competitive salary and bonuses. This is the start that attracted me.

    I'm here now because of much more.

    Not every company really cares about core values and culture beyond throwing up a page on the website about it. In my time here, I've seen our values being used to drive major decisions about hiring, strategy, growth, and so much more. This is something I've never seen anywhere else.

    Our leadership team is committed to growth (I think we are hiring 15 people right now ?!) while listening to feedback, and really acting on it when possible.

    As for the work, here I have the freedom to be creative and I'm actually encouraged to challenge and debate to come out with the best solutions.

    So far I've experienced so many different and new refreshing aspects, I'm convinced that we are on track to be one of the best agencies to work for.

    Cons

    at first the snacks were a bit dry, but it's rapidly improved :)

    Advice to Management

    seems like the best is yet to come with all the new growth for this year :)

    Pros

    Great company. I can see lots of changes being made to constantly build the company culture. I'm 7 months in and already have a promotion plan in place if I hit certain goals in the next few quarters. They even paid for two training courses I requested in the first few months I joined!

    Cons

    Things seem to be moving fast so i'm hoping that the focus on people is maintained. My last company got a bit stale after the rapid growth.

    Advice to Management

    you guys get it !
