    Pros

    Jump has world-class HFT infrastructure, generous compensation, and a meritocratic culture. They are high volume participants in many markets and are especially big players in futures. The depth of industry experience and the quality of in-house development are huge advantages at Jump. I worked at Jump for close to 6 years, left on good terms, and always felt that I was treated very well.

    Cons

    Trading teams at Jump operate largely independently of each other. This increases personal accountability and the motivation to generate new sources of P&L, but it comes at the expense of knowledge-sharing between groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jump has been both very profitable and consistently ahead of the curve in infrastructure. Management deserves a ton of credit for Jump's growth. Fostering more collaboration between trading groups is a worthy goal.

    Pros

    This company got huge cash, good for work and life balance

    Cons

    no management in this company, you have to take care of yourself. No one will guide you how to survive here, specially when you new join.
    Server team has no working standards. everybody works like NBA stars, just present themselves, but don't know what is team work… …

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    first, to learn what is SLA, and how to make things standard
    second, if you want to a better server support, fire the exist dep. manager
    third, rebuild a better infrastructure architecture
    fourth, build a better company culture and nice to the employees.
