    Like being on Titanic run by egomaniac shouting out random orders while the crew throws out lifeboats with deck chairs

    Pros

    It's a toy company with a great brand promise where you will find pockets of very talented, driven people

    Cons

    The lack of leadership, lack of communication, overall lack of clarity of vision for how an entertainment company is structured

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try some self-reflection. Recognize talent vs talented at managing the management.

    Pros

    LeapFrog overall was a relatively 'fun' place to work. How can you not smile when there are toys and devices all around? In general, your success depends on whether or not you have a good boss who genuinely cares about you and your personal growth. There are some great leaders at LeapFrog and they are trying hard to find 'success' again (more sales). Good benefits (medical/dental/vision/401k match).

    Cons

    As with most companies, there are a few 'bad' apples who can make your experience miserable. Again, this goes back to aligning yourself with a group that has a leader who cares. They used to have tuition reimbursement, but this has faded out of existence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really listen to the feedback given and respect your employees.
