I have been working at LeapFrog full-time

Pros

Exciting, highly collaborative environment with passionate and talented people. Strong corporate mission of helping children achieve their potential. Individuals at all levels can have a strong, direct impact on the business.

Cons

Employees are often overwhelmed with the number of priorities placed on them. Company is expected to outperform itself year after year, even in a volatile industry, which leads to a tendency to try to do too much with very few resources (skeleton staffs, low budgets).

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

    Pros

    Not many. You get bagels on Friday and its a nice office in a good location.

    Cons

    This was one of the worst companies I have ever worked for. My first week here many of the employees admitted to me that they cried their first two months starting out. The stress level is extreme here and the overall company message is that you are expendable. The environment is very negative and not a fun place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee morale. Make this a fun place to work.

    I have been working at LeapFrog full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are friendly and smart, and some people know what they're doing...

    Cons

    ...but most people don't. There's a lot of inefficiency and process chaos. There are some archaic ways of thinking and doing business. Senior management doesn't know what's going on and their decisions reflect their lack of insight. High turnover means there's a lot of starting over, and things never really improve. There's not a lot of opportunity for growth or learning, which is disappointing. It's too bad, because the company makes great products for the most part.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who are doing the actual work. When you find a good worker, who fits in well with the company and does a good job, do whatever you can to keep that person.
