I enjoy working for Mattel
The hours fluctuate so much during the year that it’s difficult to hold a second job during the months where it would be needed. Hours are close to full time in the fourth quarter approaching Christmas but then drop to half the hours in January

Not my fave but you might love it?
Mattel was not my favourite workplace. There was a hardcore culture of spending hours on powerpoints to present to each other which is not the best use of time, in my opinion. There were also very old legacy systems that made everything 10x harder than it needed to be.

Great place but undergoing some financial issues right now
Great work life balance but is currently going through some financial crises which has meant constant lays offs and downsizing. Hoping their financial situation is corrected soon as they are a fun and fair employer that compensates well.
Pros
Half day Fridays through out the year
Cons
Going through some financial uncertainity currently; many lay offs

This place sucks
This company is tolerating lazy people and being lazy is the canadian way of life. Don't work for this company because you'll just be a number whether you're in the office or just a plain laborer. They don't care and management don't have the foresight and the fortitude to know what's happening as long as they get their paycheck only. The lead hand's job is a big joke, too as his job description includes youtubing and laughing all day and management is happy about it.
Pros
friday only
Cons
they don't care

Work Culture
Very much a sales first every other department is setup to support sales kind of attitude. This resulted in inefficiencies across the company, every department should have its own objectives even though it challenges objectives of sales at the end of the day these differences ensure corporate objectives are met.

Amazing place
I was employed by Mattel to work at Mega Brands. Mega Brands has an awesome pop-culture-people who thrive about design, toys, and games. I felt very good among them and would really go back if the opportunity arises.

Business in transition
Organization is in need of experienced Senior Leadership to successfully guide the transformation.

Organizational goals are not clearly communicated, and priorities change regularly.


Lack of process, training, and support means day to day is interrupted by last minute requests and changing priorities.


Workplace culture is lead by long tenured employees who actively dissuade change and exclude new ideas.

An international toy maker
It was my duty to visit local stores to ensure that Mattel products were properly displayed and stocked on retailer shelves. I worked alone for Mattel and received help from store employees when needed.
