I worked at JAKKS Pacific full-time for less than a year

Pros

Impressive selection of major licenses and toy properties to work with. Great potential for learning. Creativity is encouraged. Friendly design staff.

Cons

Depending on what team you work with, certain leaders in upper management are unorganized, unprofessional, and dictate unethical work practices for their employees to meet unrealistic deadline expectations. There is no work balance, a negative office atmosphere, and long hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Overall, Upper Management should treat their designers with more respect. Learn to work productively and respectfully WITH your teams, instead of working against them.
