Spin Master is wild ride full of surprises!
Staff Designer Preschool Team (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 26, 2017
Spinmaster is a fun and energetic place to work, SM is situated at the forefront of toy design and innovation. Its employees are highly creative and driven in all aspects of toy design, branding and development.
I was lucky enough to be with Spin since the beginning of the Los Angels office I was fortunate to help start the Los Angeles office back in 2006, So in the early years we were lean and mean...We had to be resourceful...We did whatever it takes to get things done!
Many influential toy brands came out of our hard work. We set the trend for years to come, the company culture we created is work hard play hard environment (and that's what we did)!
The environment is casual in manner of dress but don't let that fool you, there are hard working teams developing evergreen brands and its own IP to drive the company forward at a very fast pace.
The hardest part of the job is dealing with many different personalities and managing their expectation's, Sometimes direction is vague so you really need to read between the lines.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the relationships you form with the staff other employees. There is a sense that everyone is in it together, all the departments follow the same schedule so you have a sense of comradery as you push through various deadlines.
The most important thing I learned it to be flexible and versatile at Spin you must be able to zig & zag at a moments notice!
Oh and keep your passport up to date, overseas travel can be frequent and at a moments notice.
Great people, fun work environment
Super tight deadlines, sometimes vague feedback & must do a lot with a little
