As you can see, I absolutely love being at LeapFrog. I cannot think of a better place to work in the Bay Area. When I started I had heard mixed thing because of all of the leadership changes but this company has been nothing like that now that JB is here. I sincerely give this company my highest recommendation and hope that it continues to attract incredible talent and inspiring leadership.

Cons

- For me it was the commute, but that's not LeapFrog's fault :)
- It can be hard to move up, but I've seen a lot of people get promoted since I've been here.

I really can't think of anything else.

Advice to Management

JB - everyone is so thankful you have stepped out of retirement to lead our group! My only advice is to continue with it, because its working!

    Pros

    Really good people (but the best don't last long)
    Interesting products

    Cons

    Terrible leadership that is constantly changing, so the priorities are constantly changing.
    Not people-centric. Inept HR leadership, who quite frankly, are downright mean and condescending.
    Not competitive in terms of salary or benefits.
    Highly politicized culture. The "suck-ups" are the only ones with upward mobility.
    Did I mention terrible leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at yourselves and make the difficult changes necessary to save this once interesting organization.
