Positive Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Mattel full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Day-offs, vacations and half day Fridays plus work-life balance and company car policy

Cons

very low salaries, no international career opportunity, very slow decision making, undemocratic approach, uncorrect information flow on company facts and personal careers, unrealistic & not-matching positions, high circulation of people, low profiled management team, unfair evaluation of competencies and favoritism.

Advice to Management

Only the management team in US can fix the unprofessional situation in EESEE region which is under Poland and Greece because they are doing everything as they please without regard for other regions.

    I have been working at Mattel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you have a willingness to see how the global company works - you'll have a chance to get it. In Warsaw, even at the lowest positions, you'll be able to get regional experience.

    Cons

    In roles like marketing & sales - it's rather closed environement focused on old practices & sometimes unfriendly for newcomers.
