I have been working at LeapFrog full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- There are talented and motivated people cross all departments - Friendly, open, and cooperative culture (in general) - The products are amazing - If treated properly, could become an even stronger company that others cannot easily replicate

Cons

- Overly aggressive development schedules increase the risk and potentially lower the quality of the products - Management is too focused on marketing instead of quality of the products

Advice to Management

- Senior management need pay attention to overall direction instead of implementation details. Mid and lower management need to be empowered to figure out the best way to reach the overall goal. - Encourage individual creativity. Avoid micro-managing. - Promote cooperative and entrepreneurial culture. - Work on attracting and retaining talented people.

    I worked at LeapFrog as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very warm and receptive culture, even for lowly interns. The company went out of its way to provide an educational and fun learning environment. Interns were allowed to select projects and presentations that could contribute real value to their respective teams.

    Cons

    Emeryville is a bit of a sleepy town. It's really small and there are not many choices for lunch within walking distance. Like many other companies, the day to day works seems driven by a steady stream of meetings, some of which are not essential for everyone. The company seemed to be taking steps to streamline the meeting schedule to make it more efficient for all departments.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a great job structuring and running the intern program. I am glad to see the number of internships across departments grow from year to year.
