Next Jump – Why Work For Us?


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. 

Next Jump helps take care of your employees and their families by offering exclusive employee pricing and rewards on the things they care about most.

We manage exclusive perks, benefits, rewards and recognition for over 70% of the Fortune 1000. Working with thousands of benefits departments worldwide lets us pinpoint the biggest challenges companies are facing and share the best solutions for all. 

Our ONECart technology lets users purchase from a variety of merchants in a single transaction. 


SUPER SATURDAY

Next Jump's full day recruiting event. It's a two way street: we want you to know if we're the right fit for you and we'd like to see if you're the right fit for us.

    I worked at Next Jump full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -The people
    -Perks (laundry, gyms/classes, food... very competitive)
    -Flexibility (have to earn it)
    -Mentorship opportunities
    -Office space (getting renovated soon, too)
    -Recognition programs

    Cons

    -Stressful (you will have lots on your plate, need to wear several different hats)
    -Strategy shifts rapidly (typical for most tech companies)
    -Core business is not very exciting (employee discounts)

    As other reviews indicate, Next Jump is certainly not for everyone. My personal opinion is that many of the negative reviews are overblown... it's not a hell hole, but it's by no means perfect either. You will be pushed outside your comfort zone. If that's not what you want, then I would look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Onboarding (post-PLB) is lacking on most teams, hard to get up to speed.
