    I worked at Leap Wireless full-time (More than a year)


    Benefits are amazing, the salary is competitive, work-life balance is valued.


    Office culture seemed like it was great everywhere EXCEPT the Phoenix office. Not a fun or welcoming atmosphere there. Constantly felt like any above/beyond was wasted because you were stepping outside your job description. Also, there was this underlying fear of getting let go at any moment, which is a terrible feeling to have all the time especially when you are someone that does work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Cheer up the office! Embrace the talent you have.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Leap Wireless (Washington, DC) in March 2013.


    The interview was held at one of their consultant's offices. It was a huge conference table and only me and the interviewer were at it. It was probably meant to be intimidating, but it really looked like a farce. I don't even think the person interviewing me looked at my resume or had any idea of what people did in Washington. It was an embarrassment to the company.
