    Former Employee - Structural Packaging in El Segundo, CA

    I worked at Mattel part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    1/2 day Fridays. Good pay and benefits. Good products with a huge marketing machine for support.

    Cons

    Long hours. Mattel tends to lay people off when they get very high on the pay scale, even if they are doing a great job. Not a place you can work 30 years and retire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People, not just dividends are important.

    I worked at Mattel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits, plenty of holidays and paid leaves, decent work / life balance (not for IT though) high discounts on products (Fantastic if you have small kids)

    Cons

    Too many leaders and too many directions. Tendency to get lost in the crowd.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give IT some prevalence... That is your new vessel... Your current state is worse than a mom and pop store !!
