I have been working at LeapFrog full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

People are excellent. There are many talented artisti, musicians, engineers at LeapFrog. They are pleasant, playful and respectful colleagues. It is rewarding to make LeapFrog products, educational content is certainly something to take pride in.

Cons

Lacks collaborative environment, cross-functional communication, or learning opportunities. There is a general lack of clear processes, or ownership at LeapFrog.

Advice to Management

Talented people are not going to wait around forever.

    Pros

    1) discount on toys 2) good location nothing really value added that's important.

    Cons

    bad business decisions have resulted in inability to invest in their future. stock price has reflected that reality. terrible working environment with high turn for a reason.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at some of the sr managers & their inappropriate behavior & lack of business acumen. these folks should be leading your company & are leading it in the wrong direction.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Hard-working teams of people who generally support eachother up to the Director level. Great products and company mission.

    Cons

    Is the CEO charismatic? Yes. Is he prone to being tone deaf except to the voices of his small, hand-picked group of political manipulators? Yes. Micromanagement is common, but decisions are often not strategically sound or made by the individuals with the best knowledge. As another reviewer noted, feedback is completely contradictory from one business review to the next. The senior management who survive all excel at ego massaging.
