    I have been working at Mattel full-time


    Flex hours, half day Fridays, very collaborative culture. Management is very open to new ideas. Passionate and high-achieving teams.


    Very fast paced and so be prepared for a heavy work load. Systems are antiquated so you waste your time gathering or consolidating information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to employees about career paths.
