I worked at Mattel full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Half day fridays, great group of people to work with. Working for a toy company is always fun and exciting.

Cons

Promotions and cross functional transfers do not happen as often as mentioned by HR. If you are good at your job chances are they won't let you transfer into another department.
