So much potential, but a LOT is broken...

Associate Manager (Current Employee) El Segundo, CA

ProsHalf-day Fridays, generous time off, some flexibility based on boss/team, very smart and passionate people

ConsConstant re-orgs, no clear career paths, can take too long for deserving people to get promoted...company values marketing above all

Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of shuffling directors and VPs around to lead departments and disciplines they have no experience in/know nothing about, hire experts from outside the organization to bring truly fresh perspective. In the hiring process, be sure that a candidate's experience is reflected in the role/level at which they're hired, otherwise their careers are stunted while at Mattel.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
