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 Management

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.

    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 Management

    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.
