I'm no longer at the company, but heard that Mattel had stopped half day Fridays some time last year. Is it now an 8 to 5 business day on Fridays, or did they end up going back to the half day?

NYTF is always an exciting event, but this year especially, I feel like Mattel's really going to pull out all the stops and wow everyone, further reenforcing the idea that Ynon has indeed turned the corner and has turned the company around.
