I worked at Mattel as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

excellent location, great work environment, the people are amazing, fun, colorful, learned a lot about the product development process, half day fridays

Cons

hard to get overtime as an intern, some really busy times, and some slow times, large part of the job is communicating with China which can get difficult at times

    I worked at Mattel part-time (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 (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 !!
