Pros

Allows creativity in design, rewards aptitude with growth into other departments or areas (as isolated by interest and performance). High standard of product excellence.

Cons

Senior management a big stumbling block to efficiency, causing unnecessary stress, wasted work and incurring extra project cost for no quantifiable benefit, more often than not.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

New blood would be a good investment. Trust the middle management more, they generally are a competent bunch. Visualize ramifications of sweeping decisions before enacting them, think through the roll out of the same on small and large levels.

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

    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!!
