    I have been working at Mattel part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent starting salary, HUGE employee discounts, fun workplace and co-workers!

    Cons

    Corporate promotions and expectations are sometimes off-base. The store sometimes feels like a warehouse...mostly because it is.

    Advice to Management

    Talking to corporate here: know your customer base and your stores before issuing promotions that aren't going to work.

    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.
