    Pros

    Working at LEAP is a fantastic experience all round. There are not many work places which pride them selves on getting the work/life balance spot on but LEAP should and rightly does so.
     Having worked here for over 4 years and progressed during this time, I feel extremely valued and constantly motivated by my management.
    The structure and direction of the company is made clear to all staff with regular quarterly updates on where the focus is and this is then filtered down to each department meaning that each individual has their own personal targets sometimes relating to their own career development including courses to enhance progression and often relating to company targets meaning you feel very much a part of the team at all times on every level.
    The social aspect which is of curse optional can be a lot of fun too and staff are continuously offered trips out and events taking place throughout the year for those who wish to join in some fun. There is a lot of focus on healthy living for those who want to get involved. We have the added benefit of great pensions, health care, dental care, Perkbox with highly valued discounts, gym membership....I could go on!
    It is a fantastic place to work and I personally am very proud to be a part of a thriving business.

    Cons

    I have no comments on any pros

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Working with dedicated and motivated people. A clear desire to be a good place for people to work.

    The consistent focus on just quarterly targets can be a hindrance. It can encourage the rushing or neglect of long term projects & goals

    Advice to Management

    Try to avoid becoming bureaucratic as the company continues to expand.

    I worked at LEAP Legal Software full-time

    Pros

    nice office environment and some decent benefits depending on what position you have

    Cons

    Bully culture
    Very low salaries unless you break through to the top or are in Sales
    Overworked
    No matter how hard you work and if you do not play the game of the managers you will not progress
    A few bad eggs get in the way of something potentially great

    Advice to Management

    Respect the hardworking loyal staff a little more and increase the salaries of people in lower positions, consider them as human beings

    Pros

    Absolutely brilliant working conditions, regular team lunches and night outs - not forgetting the team building events.

    Cons

    Too many huddles which focus on the same things everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Pay regular trips to Manchester, it would be good to see John Espley, Joseph and Susanne in Manchester a lot more. This lifts everyone spirits and produces a more productive environment.

    Pros

    LEAP is a fast paced, professional environment and it really feels like you're all working collectively as a team to reach an end goal. You are taken seriously, with your opinions and ideas taken on board and discussed. Great perks including free gym membership, free breakfast, a great coffee machine and so many fun, social gatherings together help to bring departments together.

    Cons

    No automatic yearly salary increase to align with the cost of living and inflation, this would be welcomed very much as many colleagues talk about this.

    Advice to Management

    Very little advice really as I find managers are very professional and easy to approach. Consider the above mentioned salary increase as this would help a lot of people in the business as would raise moral even more.

    I have been working at LEAP Legal Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    LEAP is a great place to work. The environment is fun and friendly but with everyone working hard to achieve the same goals. Everyone looks out for one another and help is never a problem to ask for. Managers doors are always open whether it's personal or business related and they always take on board your suggestions and ideas.

    It's great to be involved in so many activities you wouldn't normally get a chance to experience, my friends are always jealous of the opportunities I have had, whether its attending a Harlequins match in hospitality, being invited to Henley Royal Regatta or having a Christmas party on a Yacht in London.

    It's not all about the social side though, in the 18 months I have been here I have been lucky enough to visit both the Sydney and New York offices for training purposes, where i was welcomed with open arms by existing and new work friends. Hard work really does pay off and you feel appreciated by everyone that you work with.

    I would definitely recommend LEAP as a great place to work and see myself having a long and successful career here. :-)

    Cons

    The lack of parking can be a pain, but there are options of paid car parks or public transport. Other than that there are none!

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging and motivating your teams to strive to be the best! Always give feedback whether good or bad.
