    Pros

    no extra hours of working, half day friday

    Cons

    too much dependent on long timers. Most employees are there for more than 10 years and they don't embrace new people well.

    I worked at Mattel full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Half day Fridays
    Some very nice hard working people

    Cons

    Way to much stress
    Lack of direction from Sr management
    Ultra high performance expectations
    Management has definite favorites
    Intense corporate politics at all levels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with your employees to get them to the next level. Don't give them impossible goals that can't be met. If one falls from favor there is no redemption under current Sr Management regardless of performance. Quit firing your great leaders and talent. Treat employees with respect and not as commodities.
