Past decisions finally caught up with Leap/Cricket...

Director (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

ProsThe company tended to pay above-market average salaries and provided good benefits which led to a better than average overall compensation package.

ConsThe organization's leadership appeared to struggle with formulating and executing on a consistent and relevant strategic direction in an always highly competitive environment. A consistent series of short-term decisions made and strung together over a long period of time, coupled with several missed opportunities in the marketplace, appears to have finally caught up to the organization in a measurable and impacting manner.

Advice to Senior ManagementReduce the layer of upper-level management that was loaded onto the organization over the past two to three years in an attempt to "throw bodies at the problem". For those remaining, ensure they can "ride the bus" for the duration.
