    I have been working at Mattel full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Half-day Fridays, generous time off, some flexibility based on boss/team, very smart and passionate people

    Cons

    Constant re-orgs, no clear career paths, can take too long for deserving people to get promoted...company values marketing above all

    Advice to Management

    Instead of shuffling directors and VPs around to lead departments and disciplines they have no experience in/know nothing about, hire experts from outside the organization to bring truly fresh perspective. In the hiring process, be sure that a candidate's experience is reflected in the role/level at which they're hired, otherwise their careers are stunted while at Mattel.
