    I worked at Fisher-Price full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun Environment, very little stress, great management, outstanding cafeteria, team atmosphere (if they accept you).

    Cons

    As a temp employee, the "veteran" employees look down on you. Temps are kept guessing if they will have their contract extended right up until the end of the term - making it very stressful wondering if you will still have a job the next to last week.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize hard work of everyone, even the temp employees. Retain the talented ones.

    I worked at Fisher-Price full-time

    Pros

    Great work/life balance
    People are really nice and most are very talented and easy to work with
    Fast paced environment (which I liked) - always something to do

    Cons

    Don't promote very often; growth opportunities are hard to come by
    While people are nice, they can be clique-y and preferential treatment is visible in some layers (i.e. same people are asked to go to international trade shows instead of giving this learning opportunity/experience to rising managers or associates)
    There were a lot of org changes and executive level transitions while I was there, often making people nervous, unsure of job security and consistency in leadership

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities to mentor and help your employees grow within the organization (this includes working on high-profile projects, traveling to gain experience in different concentrations within the company, coaching to become a better manager, etc)
