Difficult Times for Toys
Director (Current Employee), El Segundo, CAFebruary 26, 2015
Been two very bad years for the company and hundreds of layoffs in the process. Tough environment right now. The culture is extremely risk averse and conservative and for my position - real lack of transparency which is key to leadership. Nothing personal, just very difficult times right now. Company not really going after real and fresh innovation.

Great place to work
Data Control Analyst (Current Employee), El Segundo, CAFebruary 3, 2015
Mattel is a great place to work. Alot of work and alot of chances to grow within are available. They pay is okay but over time is definitely available so that helps to even things out. Half day fridays and the three week holiday recess is great too.

Keep your opinions to yourself, but the work is fun
Project Manager (Former Employee), El Segundo, CANovember 18, 2014
Pros: good pay, good co-workers and you're making toys
Cons: treat temps terribly, always afraid of being laid off, management is frustrating
Loved the work, loved most of the people, but management is fear based and focused on self-preseravtion which makes anyone who speaks up a threat.

This traditional company is not willing to take many chances.

Also, I was a temp at this company for three years, did a phenomenal job and then let go with a 1/2 hours notice. Pretty brutal.
