I would recommend his autobiography as a starting point.
After that, it depends on whether you are interested in his more technical work, or his more esoteric/philosophical work. I recommend Psychological Types for his more technical writing. For his esoteric writing, you have more options, but The Red Book, Psychology and Alchemy, and Aion are all good reads.
Yeah I jumped right into Jung without reading much of the work that he constantly references (Jung was a legendary book worm) and while he does a good job of giving explanations and context for the things he references, it is probably better to approach his work after covering at least the basics of some of these writers referenced, particularly Nietzsche and Goethe.
That being said, his autobiography is definitely something you can read without these prerequisites. It will give you a good taste of what Jung is about while giving you an idea if its something worth pursuing (I don't think overly scientific minds will really "get" Jung).
