Good company that makes some good products
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Emeryville, CADecember 23, 2016
Enjoyed working on many successful products.

Management pushed for too many products at too short of a deadline.

Friendliest co-workers you could ask for.

Unrealistic deadlines was the hardest part of the job. Launching product with known issues because there wasn't enough time is demoralizing.

I most enjoyed seeing kids of people I know enjoying products I've worked on.
Pros
Friendly
Cons
Crunch time

LF overall
Manager (Former Employee) –  Emeryville, CAJuly 24, 2016
Overall the company was ok. The shortcomings were mainly related to the issues surrounding upper management. The company lacked a real vision or overall plan.

Wonderful People and Good Experience
Manager (Former Employee) –  Emeryville, CAJuly 5, 2016
In general LF was a good place to work. If offered what I needed to be able to have a good work/life balance. Like most companies it had it's ups and downs, and unfortunately the last down was to much to overcome.
Pros
Great people, competitive benefits, good work environment, good systems, employees had a say in things
Cons
Lacked direction at times, long term development often set aside for short term success, inconsistent message from management, processes and procedures not always followed

Dream job
Producer (Current Employee) –  Emeryville, CAMarch 8, 2016
LeapFrog has a noble vision and was a great place to work. The future is uncertain given the recent buyout by VTech, which explains the 2 stars for job security. Aside from that, I have no complaints.
Pros
The best creatives in the business
Cons
Executive leadership focused on plannogram instead of emerging digital popularity

Best educational toys around
Sales Analyst (Former Employee) –  Emeryville, CAFebruary 29, 2016
Leapfrog is a small operation that has seen better days. The products are still the best educational toys around but the influence Leapfrog had in it's heyday is gone.

Good people, no clear strategy
Associate Brand Manager (Current Employee) –  Emeryville, CAOctober 8, 2015
LeapFrog has some of the best people I've ever worked with. That being said, leadership has done a poor job the past couple of years communicating their strategy (if one has even been created). Things will be tough the next couple of years if the company can pull through.
Pros
Work/Life balance; people; mission
Cons
No clear strategy; micro-management by C-suiters

Great Work Life Balance
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Emeryville, CASeptember 30, 2015
Great work/life balance. Hard to get promoted within due to employees staying in their positions long.

A typical day at work is very busy from the time you walk in the door until quitting time.

Co workers are for the most part very personable.

I enjoy working at a company that makes innovative educational products for children.

Fun, Innovative Educational Products
Marketing Designer (Former Employee) –  Emeryville, CASeptember 22, 2015
Loved working for such a dynamic company with great, innovative educational and play products. The work environment was a bit hectic in an open floor plan. The work was exciting and challenging and I learned alot from each assignment. They had explosive growth as a tech company, so things were always changing. Great benefits and compensation. The work-life balance was a challenge.
Pros
Great products, people and fun environment
Cons
Schedule was often unpredictable with long days.

Future is not great
Employee (Current Employee) –  Emeryville, CAAugust 20, 2015
Overall the people I work with are great. Co-workers are responsible and care for the company and the people we all work with. Upper management is somewhat disconnected with employee's needs and concerns and also with the market trend.

Process definitely needs improvement. Too many heads making decisions align with their own egos but not enough ears to listen and hearts to work together as a team. Everyone wants to lead and no one wants to follow. The ones who are leading don't seem to know where they are going.
Pros
The original goal of helping kids learn to read is great.
Cons
Process is clunky and disconnected causing delays in decision making and missing deadlines

Pioneers
Product Manager (Former Employee) –  EmeryvilleJuly 7, 2015
I was honored to work for Leapfrog when video games were focused on education and learning... I was glad to feel like a pioneer in the industry by working on products that have a direct impact on the children and communities globally.

Do The Right Things
Director (Current Employee) –  Emeryville, CAJanuary 15, 2014
Froggers solve complex problems everyday in-line with the Company's core mission and make it universally accessible to all employees. In additions, the key thing that makes working at LeapFrog truly unique is the workplace culture that encourages innovation and a healthy disregard for the impossible.
