Cool technology, great people, but senior management is entrenched and needs new blood.

I worked at LeapFrog

Pros

Very cool technology and compelling products.

Cons

Lots of legacy processes and management hierarchy. Difficult to move new ideas forward. Lots of politics.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more software engineering managers and VPs from the outside and adopt standard software development best practices. Leapfrog is entrenched in processes that only make sense from a hardware development perspective.

    I worked at LeapFrog full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The brand is great for the US & European markets. (For Asia is tough though)
    People are nice and they all tend to work in the company for more than 5 years as the company business is very stable for growth. However, not much opportunity for individual career growth..

    Cons

    Finance people in HK are very difficult to work with and with mean attitude! They come in late and leave early everyday; Always Chit Chat loudly about things that are not related to work making the others very annoyed and cannot concentrate to work!!
