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

Pros

Creative, positive people - a love for the brand and what they do at American Girl.

Cons

Change - role clarification, new leadership not knowing the brand.

Advice to Management

Most senior management is great; you need to listen to your people; they add more valuable information than you think.

    "Could be the perfect workplace, if only the management rewarded the work and not political maneuvering and glad-handing."

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

    Pros

    Highly creative environment. Great people. Competitive salary. Working on big entertainment properties. TOYS!

    Cons

    Middle management flooded with low-talent, politically-oriented yes-men who never hesitate to throw their highly-skilled, hard-working minions under the bus to keep them down and make themselves look good.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your best creators and innovators and promote them. Middle management doesn't benefit from smiling politicians. It needs passionate, gritty ass-kickers.

    I worked at Mattel as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was an intern there for a few months in a small department. Could totally sense more drama going on in larger departments. I had lots of fun with a lot of toys in the office. People are generally nice and talented. Half-day Fridays are the best. I learned a lot from the internship and have met some great people. Would love to work there again if I have the chance to.

    Cons

    More drama in larger departments
