    I worked at Mattel

    Pros

    Good, causal, fun work environment. Decent location, nice headquarters, good cafeteria, and good employee discount. Great design team and opportunity to think creatively most of the time.

    Cons

    The higher ups changing their minds constantly and creating more work for employees and in turn making it sometimes difficult to make and meet deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To communicate clearly what is the direction and sticking to it. To much politics involve sometimes, make it frustrating for employees to work productively.
