Any insights into culture and work-life balance for financial analyst roles at Mattel? According to Glassdoor, work-life balance isn’t the greatest and promotion isn’t as transparent, but would like to see if anyone has further insights? Thanks!

    good teams, friendly environment, good work-life balance, good benefits

    job is located in a very expensive area. If they want people to work there with hard earned, expensive degrees, and live close by, they should pay more competitively

    Pros

    Upscale retail toy store. Customers and employees were treated with respect. Interviewed with two managers. Onboarding was easy and painless.

    Cons

    Training was challenging due to the fact that my direct supervisor was in another state. All training was remote. This was before remote was really a thing. Pay was ok, but not as good as it should've been, due to all the added duties and responsibilities.
