    Great if you have a family. Sucks if you're single.

    Former Employee - Senior Analyst in El Segundo, CA

    I worked at Mattel full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company. Classic products. Great discount on toys. Half day Fridays! A lot of great people to work with. Onsite cafeteria/gym/dry cleaning are great.

    Cons

    There's a lot of office politics involved. Very dynamic environment. No standard procedure. Different "exceptions" for different accounts. Being single and working there, I feel that I have to cover for other people more often. Also feel that people w/o families get laid off first.

    I worked at Mattel

    Pros

    Great management (in my case). I learned everything from concept design to finished on the shelf toy. Brainstorm weeks are fun and inspiring. You come out with a lot more skills and an open door to other companies. They have day care and Christmas & Halloween are a blast. It's a giving company.

    Cons

    Big corporate environment that's not design driven. A lot of long meetings.
