    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.
