I worked at Mattel full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Half day Fridays
Some very nice hard working people

Cons

Way to much stress
Lack of direction from Sr management
Ultra high performance expectations
Management has definite favorites
Intense corporate politics at all levels

Advice to Management

Work with your employees to get them to the next level. Don't give them impossible goals that can't be met. If one falls from favor there is no redemption under current Sr Management regardless of performance. Quit firing your great leaders and talent. Treat employees with respect and not as commodities.
