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

    Pros

    - I personally love the constant focus on learning and improving digital marketing strategies and tactics. The team is tight-knit and entirely results focused. | - Personal opinions and beliefs NEVER trump actual data and results, we always plan, test, validate, deploy, review, and repeat. I've learned so much after just a few years that I easily trump experts that are several decades my senior, and I even go back...

    Cons

    - (for me personally) the drive. I live in Mississauga so getting to North York can sometimes be a bit of a trek. It's a small price to pay to get to work with such a great team, plus the regular work-from-home days make this a minor thing. | - This is not a laid-back do-nothing type of job. Only apply here is you're someone who is passionate and has a drive for fast past, results-based digital marketing. You constantly...

    Advice to Management

    - Keep up the investment in the team and culture. I never want to slip into corporate mediocrity. Always focus on keeping the values aligned and a top priority. | - Would love to play a bigger role in the local community like doing volunteering as part of team events once in a while. | - Would love to start trying internship positions where we can teach and up-skill students and improve the availability of skilled...

    I worked at Jumpfactor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The team at Jumpfactor is extremely strong. Every person will have something valuable to teach you. I gained an immense amount of knowledge working here in just one year, and built a large portfolio of work with different clients, and projects. My managers trusted in me to be able to lead many design projects, and because of this I had a chance to get very creative with the work that I did. Jumpfactor keeps up with...

    Cons

    The work is definitely fast paced, but working in Agile really helps prioritize tasks and make sure people aren't overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the biweekly 1on1's with managers. Consistent feedback is a huge contributor to the team's growth.

    Pros

    - Great team - Great culture - Birthday cake - Ping Pong Table

    Cons

    - Terrible management (get ready to be micromanaged) - Nonexistent work-life balance (you are expected to stay after 5 PM and work late hours) - Wages are under average (salaries in job descriptions do not reflect the reality) - Not much space for professional growth - Very high employee turnover rate (employees work for a few months and leave) - Fake reviews on Glassdoor (CEO encourages employees to write 5 star...

    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

    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 !)

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...
