Pros

Great management (in my case). I learned everything from concept design to finished on the shelf toy. Brainstorm weeks are fun and inspiring. You come out with a lot more skills and an open door to other companies. They have day care and Christmas & Halloween are a blast. It's a giving company.

Cons

Big corporate environment that's not design driven. A lot of long meetings.

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

    Pros

    Fun products and famous names like Barbie and Hot Wheels. Decent benefits. Don't think they'll go out of business any time soon.

    Cons

    Very conservative management. Extremely political environment. Heavy emphasis on cost-cutting except for senior positions. Limited future vision.
