    I have been working at American Girl part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It's a happy & extremely rewarding environment. The feeling you get when you see little girls waiting for you to open the doors is such an excitement that most people will never get to experience at work. There are great perks, such as the employee discount and huge Christmas "box" from Mattel, filled with at least 10 different free toys from various Mattel brands. Probably most important is the incomparable employee recognition. We are treated so well, from paid training programs, to free breakfast, to paid "play days" (you get paid to literally play with toys for an hour), it's an amazing company to work for.

    Cons

    Since it's a smaller company, its a slower process for promotion as there just aren't as many positions available higher up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keepin' on! Don't stop what you're doing: don't ever forget about who this company was made for and who makes up this company.
