    Great team atmosphere. Listened to associates for input

    Communication with parent company needed to be better. Visits from offsite VP's would be insightful to them

    I worked at MEGA Brands full-time

    Pros

    You work with very creative people and most are up beat. Most of the time it keeps you on your toes and theres always work to keep one busy. The products and licenses are always fun to develop and work with.

    Cons

    Long hours. Most weeks you'll work 40-50 hours. It's frowned upon if you actually want to work an 8 hour day, and they make you feel it. Very clique-ish and a few managers support that indirectly. They shifted managers and added some. There are far too many chefs in the kitchen and it wears everyone down with mixed commands. As an employee you WILL do the job of 2-3 people if not more, everyone there does.

    Advice to Management

    Support any and all employees and bring back SOME the olders ones that left. They were hard workers despite certain management efforts to set them up for fail.

    I worked at MEGA Brands full-time

    Pros

    Great products and excellent support staff. Competitive pay and benefits.
    Brand with a great reputation and recognition.

    Cons

    Upper management direction tended to be unclear and many times during rough times at the company moral was really low and everyone afraid for their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    More clear communication and transparency with the employees especially when a public statement is released. It's a bit unnerving learning more about your company through the press that internally.
