    I worked at Crayola full-time

    Pros

    There are some good people. A few of whom care very much for the well being of the others and the company. But thats about it.

    Cons

    Management-wise, this will go down as one of the worst organizations, ever. It is probably the most toxic environment I've ever experienced as far as management goes. No one follows the company's own culture missions. It's a total mess, especially in IT. It's run by complete chaos and and fear tactics. Leadership has absolutely zero clue on how to even engage with employees and it appears they don't really care to either. They just blame everyone else for their own failures and take credit when others succeed. I've watched many great and caring people either walk out the door or be shown the door because leadership is a mess. Zero structure or support from HR. They claim they want to know what is going on. But once management is aware of the discussion, they target people and get rid of them instead of executive levels dealing with absolutely terrible management. Very sad situation as there is a ton of potential to make this a great place to work. I will never recommend working for Crayola to anyone. Stay away at all costs.
