    Need growth beyond trading cards, stronger innovation, larger marketing budget, create synergy and more interaction between sports, entertainment, candy and digital. Create vision for the future.

    I worked at Topps Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    4 free Fridays off in the summer, great people overall

    Cons

    Cash strapped company, won't invest in upgrades, IT is slow to replace computers, all about money

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a better people culture, emphasize not only on the money, but on having happy employees that in turn can produce results.

    Great brands. Dedicated people. But lacking good leadership.

    I worked at Topps Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A great group of dedicated long-term employees who are passionate about the products. Great brands with a strong fan-based.

    Cons

    No executive team vision despite numerous changes at the top and acquisition by a major entertainment industry icon. Culture is old school and lacks any innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop saying that you are looking for innovation and change when you don't really encourage it.

    Small group with opportunity for lateral mobility but limited upward mobility

    I have been working at Topps Company

    Pros

    Company is making renewed efforts to market toward children

    Cons

    Oppressive work enviro, CYA mentality, Management disconnected from the day-to-day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current leadership group has been ineffective and should be reevaluated. Entire company needs a reorg from the ground up. In general Upper Management would benefit from some bottom up thinking. Trickle down operations and strategy have been a bust.
