    Pros

    Jump has a flat structure and is not a company where you are going to climb a corporate ladder. Your career will grow by gaining new responsibilities and learning new skills. Jump is supportive of employees exploring new opportunities and moving internally within the firm.

    Cons

    Not necessarily a con, but Jump is not going to hold your hand and define a career path for you. You need to determine how you want to grow your career at Jump (based on your skills and interests) and take the initiative to make it happen.

    Pros

    Jump provides a challenging, fun, and fast-paced environment. I am extremely proud of what Jump Trading stands for, which includes, talented people, cutting edge technology, sophisticated trading, and doing things the right way. I feel lucky to work at Jump because I truly believe that all levels of management really care about their employees. The benefits are the best that I have ever had too!

    Cons

    This industry requires individuals to be creative and to be able to adapt to change quickly.

    Pros

    Some of the best and smartest people I have ever had the pleasure of working with in a Financial Industry.

    Cons

    Salaries are great but information sharing isn't as wide spread as it could be in this growing firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be great if there was a direct relationship between work performance and work compensation.
