    Great Company, but becoming too corporate

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) East Aurora, NY

    ProsPeople are great and genuinely care about each other
    Benefits and time off
    Half Day Fridays
    Employees really do care about making great toys

    ConsThe atmosphere has really changed in the last 5 years. Fisher Price use to be a huge company with a local feel and now it's being over run by corporate greed and policies. Corporate direction is focused on share holders not the children anymore. There are layoffs at least once and year and no one feels like their job is safe regardless of their performance.
    Very limited opportunity for advancement and those that have advanced have been fired or demoted.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMiddle and Upper Management is in the same position as all other employees, watching jobs get cut or moved to Asia wondering if they are next.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A great place to work in Western New York"

    Manager (Current Employee) East Aurora, NY

    ProsFantastic benefits, great work-life balance, and a wonderful brand to be associated with. Some really fantastic and talented marketers, designers and engineers.

    ConsSalaries are only competitive by Western New York standards. If you want to move up or make more, you have to move to Mattel HQ in El Segundo, CA. There is an entrenched middle management layer that has grown comfortable with mediocre salaries due to WNY's low cost of living.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAddress the striking disparity in the diversity of the workforces in East Aurora (which is relatively homogeneous) and El Segundo (marvelously diverse).

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Best job I've ever had

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) East Aurora, NY

    ProsGreat people at all levels, employees treated well, generous vacation and benefits, opportunities to share ideas and contribute to products, half day Fridays all year, on-site cafeteria and gym, opportunities for bonuses, profit sharing, etc.

    ConsPerpetually a little short-staffed in the production positions. Fast company changes mandated by Mattel can catch you off guard. Company is a little tight-fisted when it comes to upgrades and investing in employees. A lot of money spent with expensive ad agencies that aren't effective. I wish more money was allocated internally on kick-ass facilities and equipment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest internally where you are currently seeing promising results (in spite of shoestring budgets), for even better results.
