C'mon, guys, that was some funny sh-t. I'm now convinced this will turn out to be one of those cult 'so bad it's good' movies that everybody will want to see. Whether you like it or not, this will be a good thing for Mattel and in turn for all of us... — read more
I vote for either the 60th Anniversary Barbie Dreamhouse or Theranos Edison Machine.
Economy is bad, but that cannot and should not be an excuse for all the bad moves made by our leadership. Just saying. Hasn't there been too many bad leadership moves already?
Do you predict that there will be Mattel layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
I left with an extra ID a few years ago. Is there still an apple discount? at&t? what else do employees have as a corporate discount?

I really don't believe that there is anyone who stayed at Mattel because they love their job here. Is there anyone? I doubt it. Even my manager looks more dissatisfied than ever and I believe he is in the process of looking for better options.

It's turning out to not have been such a bad idea after all.

Instead of trying to keep good employees, Mattel is putting more and more pressure on them to leave. I feel very unwanted in this company and I've started looking for a way out. Actually, I think many feel unwanted here? It's a very ugly... — read more
My manager constantly pretends that business is doing fine, that Mattel is on an upward trajectory. His job is, among other things, to raise morale, but people feel that "false optimism" and it's a bit annoying. Isn't it more important to ensure... — read more
When will Disney buy Mattel?
Nice to finally see the company on the rise once again. not sure I understand the whole NFT, but why not? If it works, I say exploit it like workers in a chinese factory!!
Every time we have a recession, Mattel enters the layoff mode. Is this time going to be different? What do you think?
