    I have been working at Leapfactor full-time

    Pros

    Given the reins to take control of getting things done. Small, dynamic atmosphere allows us to react to the newest technologies and make changes quickly.

    Cons

    Being a small startup, some things outside of your expertise need to be done, must be willing to work hard but it is rewarding

    Advice to Management

    Keep the ship pointed in the right direction and continue to let your employees do their jobs.

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

    Pros

    -Having a job is better than being unemployed.

    Cons

    -mediocre salaries
    -underestimate employee's skills/capabilities
    -unprofessional interaction with employees
    -"CMO" without any marketing background, complete lack of skills or leadership. CMO is CMO because CMO is CEO's wife.
    -CEO bad-mouths and lies to clients
    -No direction in strategy, incapable of communicating clear deliverables to employees.
    -Lack of accountability in Human Resources

    Advice to Management

    Cash off. Dedicate to something else not involving leadership, customer relations or marketing skills.

    Pros

    Working with top-tier software developers from other countries.

    Cons

    Completely disorganized. They have a handful (3) of developers managing 3-4 projects at the same time. Company makes unrealistic promises to clients. CEO bad mouths and lies to employees outside of the U.S to cover up the reality that the company is falling apart.

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

    Pros

    The culture of the organization promotes innovation and the ability for you to grow and increase your talent across the board. The company has a family environment where you are integrated into the decision making process where you feel valued, empowered and recognized by the management team.I like the open door policy the company has and its ability to listen and consider one's feedback.

    Cons

    We are a start up company where you will be performing additional tasks beyond the full scope of your job but ultimately it provides your with an opportunity to be exposed to a much larger aspect of the organization. I have learned a lot within the time that I have been with the company ( one year plus) considering how management exercises great flexibility with the individual's performance goals and objectives.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to lead a vision where they exercise flexibility, valuing, empowerment, recognition when rewarding their most valuable asset. This company has a great future and their people is what makes it a "best in class organization" to work for. Keep focusing on "People" while leading a successful company.

    Pros

    Small and agile decisions, you can think on your feet, one becomes a master of many trades, still learning the corporate ropes so one can make one's mark, people are nice overall and mean well.

    Cons

    Disorganization within the hierarchy and structure, very new to leadership skills, flat organization and no real leadership at the helm, no proper tools given for your job (one needs to invent short cuts), professional disrespect is the norm, bandwidth concerns are not addressed, on boarding is not very good.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on your SLAs and make it a point to stick to a normal SDLC focusing on UI/UX. PMO is a very important part of your company if you want to succeed.

    I worked at Leapfactor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company provides a constant learning experience where you are provided with the tools to grow and succeed at all levels of the enterprise. During my tenure was given the opportunity to be exposed with different teams in the USA, Argentina, and Mexico, where brainstorming, new programming languages, and innovative training activities drove the my constant growth potential and my overall professional development. I truly am thankful for the experience I gathered which prepared me for my next career challenge. A company with great potential in this innovative industry. Felt valued and empowered!

    Cons

    As a start up company you are faced with day to day uncertainty, typical of the nature of the industry. In this challenging business and app development market you are required to work in a highly pressured environment with constant deadlines. Nevertheless, this molds you to become a strong individual that can face challenges driven to achieve positive results.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of Florida and conquer Silicon Valley, CA. Definitely an innovative company to be engaged with for career development.
