Pros

Opportunity to work with some incredibly talented people during the glory years of Bratz (2002-2007). Fellow employees were well qualified and new hires generally had years of experience in toys and entertainment. Fast growth and tight resources necessitated wearing many hats which provided great exposure to different parts of the business and valuable experience for future jobs.

Cons

Owner/CEO is a very talented businessman but his erratic behavior was too much for some people to take. High turnover and difficult to feel secure in your job even in the best of times.

Advice to Management

There are more important things in life than being "a billion dollar company"

    Pros

    A good place to work if you want to learn a little bit of everything.

    Cons

    At the time, we were a little under staffed and had to deliver on unrealistic goals. I feel that with time and better understanding between all departments that the company can be a great place to work and grow your career.

    Advice to Management

    I think they should continue to work hard and produce great products.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Casual dress, toy business, nice co-workers

    Cons

    Employees have nowhere to go when problems arise - Human Resources will tell managers that you have been down to see them. This leads to an environment devoid of any trust.
    Layoffs frequently include the worker bees, yet the queen bees stay on staff with inflated salaries.
    Innovation is encouraged yet costed down for production
    Employees aren't given the management and encouragement necessary to grow with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key to a happy work place. At MGAE, there is none. Rumors run rampant and people are left wondering every week if they'll have a job.
