One of the best to work for in LA area

Finance Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Mattel full-time

ProsHalf day Fridays are great, even when you work a few extra hours, the building is pretty much empty by 3PM. Great career opportunities and the company will invest in you if you are hardworking and dedicated. Work-life balance is respected.

ConsIT infrastructure is bad for such a large company. Workload can be intense sometimes, but I don't know of any worthwhile companies where it isn't, to go far you have to work hard.

Advice to Senior ManagementInnovate more, take more risks.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
