    I worked at LeapFrog full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great products, most of the people are stellar, flexible schedule, fun workspace, good area to work in, centrally located.

    Cons

    It can get political real fast! The company has not been doing well lately and it seems moral is low.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on what you are good at and stop trying to go for the older crowd. Leapfrog will always be a toy company for the 7 and under crowd.
