I have worked at JAKKS for 4 years now and I love it. We have recently moved into a new building which is state of the art and in a great area. We are all in the same building now and it is much easier to communicate with peers and colleagues. The pay is great. Yes, you work long hours sometimes but you see the rewards when the product is on the shelf and you see people buying our stuff. They even put in a nice nursing mother's room in the new place so it's easy for working moms to come back to work. We also have a nice lunchroom that has fresh foods to purchase for discounted prices.
I think if anything it would be the long hours. The pay is good so it evens out. Some negative people complain about silly things that don't matter but if you just ignore them and carry on eventually they go away.
Advice to Management
I don't know if we would take it because we all work hard, but if we had 1/2 day friday's like other Toy companies that would be nice.
