    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    It's the toy industry!
    A big company with many things to learn from various departments
    Most people were just nice, easy going, and great to work with.
    CEO was doing his best and did a great job despite a hugely disorganized upper management.

    Cons

    I got laid off during my parental leave... Says a lot about the company!
    Super micro management from VPs created endless delays which in return VPs blamed the teams for
    Employees were never considered more than purely expendable expenses
    Upper management did not know much about management... but surely knew about seven figures salaries
    Money was always an issue when bonus time came. But on the following day after being told by the execs there would be no bonus that year, the CIO arrived with a $250,000 brand new Lamborghini... Says a lot too.
    In the first three months I was there, I had to put over 100 hours of overtime because execs wanted to do everyone's job and did not trust each expert's... expertise!

    Advice to Management

    None. They sold the company and left with the money.

    I have been working at MEGA Brands full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of toys lying around. Great if you have kids. You can buy them at discounted prices.
    Lots of people from different backgrounds.

    Cons

    Nepotism rules and how long the person has been there. Not competence.
    Just look at some executives. Some have never worked anywhere else before and fear new ideas from outside because they have never been "outside". Hopefully Mattel can do some "cleanup" and bring new people with fresh ideas in.

    Advice to Management

    The brands looks very limited & dated.
    Mattel should consider doing some "refreshing" of ideas.

  8. "Good place to work in"

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    be more united as a company not just within your teams

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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