Pros

Solid product focus and a better understanding of cost containment than most wireless companies. Leap's business model is truly more efficient than that of most competitors.

Cons

Project management is very immature. Most new initiatives are a deadly combination of firefighting and death march. Office politics soar to new heights, and it's unfortunately true that one's success depends mostly on who you know and are friendly with rather than actual skill level. There's something of a history of tolerance for misconduct among senior staff, but that tolerance absolutely does not extend to the junior levels of the organization.

Advice to Management

Understand that valuable advice and feedback can come from all parts of the organization--even the front-line employees who interact with customers!

    Pros

    Benefits are amazing, the salary is competitive, work-life balance is valued.

    Cons

    Office culture seemed like it was great everywhere EXCEPT the Phoenix office. Not a fun or welcoming atmosphere there. Constantly felt like any above/beyond was wasted because you were stepping outside your job description. Also, there was this underlying fear of getting let go at any moment, which is a terrible feeling to have all the time especially when you are someone that does work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Cheer up the office! Embrace the talent you have.

  2. Great place great people to work with
