Become a better person as a result of where you work. We use business as a platform to build people of higher character.
Better Me: We believe that in order to make the world a better place, you first need to focus on bettering yourself. Next Jumpers work on cultural initiatives designed as safe places where we can practice to improve areas where we struggle both personally and professionally, such as some of the examples below:
10x: Next Jumpers present on their contributions to revenue and culture. Presenters receive on-the-spot coaching from our executives, and the entire company participates.
Talking Partners: Next Jumpers are paired off and meet daily. These partners develop relationships of trust and help each other grow through advice and support.
Next Jump has been recognized by the Harvard Business Review of one of the 3 companies in the world specifically designed to help their people grow.
Better You: As we grow, we become better equipped to better help our clients and community. At Next Jump, we call this Better You, and it's built into our DNA as a company. Some Better You initiative examples:
Code for a Cause: The best way to give back to the community is by sharing in your area of expertise. Next Jumpers are given two full weeks to work on projects for a non-profit organization.
Adopt a Non-profit: Imagine if every company gave office space to a non-profit for $1 a year. Next Jump provides full access to our office and perks to our adopted non-profits.
Next Jump Academy: We're changing the world by changing workplace culture and we're sharing how we do it with interested executives and heads of HR of other companies. Past Academy participants have included Zappos and Whole Foods.

I have been working at Next Jump full-time (Less than a year)
My job at Next Jump is my first full-time job out of college, recruited through campus career fair. So far it has been fantastic. The people are amazing - welcoming, friendly, fun, everything you could want in coworkers. The office in Cambridge is great, very open and invites communication and fun (not boxed off in a corner somewhere). I'd heard horror stories from college friends about how worked to death they were at their first jobs and I was thrilled to find Next Jump had very fair and healthy expectations of me as a new employee. The big pro is how much they take truly take interest in you as a person, not just as a desk drone. Everyone around you is motivated to become a better person, in all aspects of their life. At first, I did struggle with this because it was such a strange concept, but it's honestly an excellent opportunity just to develop into a +1 of yourself. I can see a difference in how I act in my home life because of what I have taken from these experiences. And that is something I was NOT expecting to say starting out here. And that is on top of all the other benefits: free fitness classes/gym which includes lunch, free dinners, loads of activities, great benefits, etc. etc. Great place to work. :)
Management feels a bit spontaneous, which is positive in that changes happen fast, but sometimes don't feel too thought through.
Advice to Management

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Next Jump (New York, NY) in October 2015.
Applied through career fair, then one cultural on-campus interview, one technical phone interview, and a full-day interview at their Super Saturday event. They paid for my transportation to NYC (They offer to pay for hotel as well but I did not need one) for Super Saturday. The event itself is from 10am to 8pm, which I thought would be awful, but they paced it really well, and add that to some delicious breakfast, lunch, and all kinds of snacks everywhere around the office, time flew by really fast. Extremely pleasant experience overall.
