I have been working at Mattel

Pros

Fun to make toys for a living
Friendly atmosphere
Pay is generally good for those who deserve it
Training offered is good

Cons

Political types get ahead quickly
Too often hire from the studios
Getting very top heavy. More and more VP's and less worker bees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize strategic value of IT and don't treet as a body shop. Be careful in promoting those who are political and focus only on those who produce.

    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.
