I have been working at LeapFrog full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Opportunity to be in kid's education field - a field where you have a chance to actually make a difference. Flexible time off - people can (more or less) come and go as long as they get their work done (for most positions. Good pay & benefits package. Some very kind and steady people.

Cons

High ratio of disfunctional team members and bizarre organization of platform teams. Profound lack of experience among marketing team members (leading to inability to provide solid direction to functional teams) in a 'marketing led' organization - lots of inefficiency. Not a lot to learn from anyone after spending a year here. Seems like the loudest (volume - seriously) people get promoted, rather than the best qualified.

    Pros

    No words to talk about Leapfrog

    Cons

    Employees at Director and above level always enjoy all perks .

    At times, they will enjoy 6-7 months unofficial notice period on top of which they get compensated for non-disclosure agreements etc.

    Lower level employees are always affected and at times are given instant notices even for those employees who work longer terms.

    Managers go into "revenge" mode during REORGs and resort to any technique to boot the employees out.

    HR always in "Yes Boss" mode for directors and above level employees.

    You will suffer if you are a real team player.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should always reward hard working employees. And HR should use some common sense when it comes to taking care of employees.

    Follow what you say in the meetings. Reward team players.

    Always worry about kids.... and worry about employees too.
