    Pros

    Half day Fridays, good benefits, global company, competitive industry keeps the politics down.

    Cons

    There is not a strong push for innovation in products, there seems to be a strong block to transferring to different deparmrnts and divisions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the innovative ideas of all employees, try to capture them


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

    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.
