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

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere as part of a toy company. Also nice to be a part of the Mattel group of companies. Good possibility to grow if willing to leave the country.

    Cons

    Marketing team is overworked and lacks good team culture. Almost no one takes a lunch break and most stay long hours

    Advice to Management

    Try to foster less stressful culture for marketing team.

    I have been working at MEGA Brands full-time

    Pros

    Fun if you love toys, the people who work here are friendly, although not a massive community feeling.

    The building is very bad, and it's the worst part about working here.

    pls make a better work environment and do a better job listening to your employees and making work more engaging and respectful.
