That was the most challenging experience I had so far. I have learned and grown a lot by working with top level people, and challenging clients on their marketing approach. Jabmo is a leader in its domain.
Working in a fast-paced company like Jabmo can be hard for some people, resulting on a significant turnover.

Very multicultural work environment, projects are progressing at a fast pace with dynamic colleagues with different backgrounds. All Jabmo employees are versatile and accountable. They continuously bring ideas in order to improve the company.
Jabmo is focused on growing globally with its multiple entities in EMEA and US so it is an instructive experience to become a Jabmoers.
And the icing on the cake: great offices in the heart of Paris with an amazing terrace where you can share ideas with your coworkers.
Since Jabmo is growing very fast, some decisions are taken then changed quite often and that can decelerate some important projects.
This startup does not have a ping pong table (but a Foosball).
Advice to Management
Some decisions should not be taken in the heat of the moment.

Nice office with lots of free food and drink
A nice Jabmo North Face backpack which they take back when you leave
Far too many to list!
No training to understand programs or even how processes work
Expectation to do the work of 4 people
CEO changes direction quickly and sporadically
The team in the Mauritius office is required to work US hours and therefore, 2 people quit within my very short time with the company because of this. Turnover at this company is extremely high!
Completely inflexible with hours and work from home opportunities
Absolutely no work / life balance. Majority of the people at the company are single or married without children so they don't care about this balance.
Promises made during the interview process are not kept once your employment starts - this wasn't just the case for myself but for another employee as well
Advice to Management
I am not sure the CEO has realistic goals for the company. Management needs to take a very hard look at their business reality and realize the requests they are making on their staff are completely unrealistic.
