Any insights into culture and work-life balance for financial analyst roles at Mattel? According to Glassdoor, work-life balance isn’t the greatest and promotion isn’t as transparent, but would like to see if anyone has further insights? Thanks!

I interviewed at Mattel

Interview

They start off with phone screen interview, followed by virtual interview, followed by second interview that is usually a lot more technical. This interview might have multiple people on the call. Then after this, they will either extend an offer or let you know they will be going in another direction.
