A Message to Ynot from the employees at Mattel

Ynot – did you know that you are the CEO of a TOY COMPANY? I know you so desperately want to be the CEO of an entertainment company but taking the helm at our failing toy company was apparently the only gig you could get. So now you spend all of... —  read more

Regarding the decline at American Girl?

I was thinking about American Girl the other day and it occured to me in recent years I've noticed a subtle change in the company’s output. No longer do the the dolls seem to convey the innocent girlhood image with which Pleasant Rowland had started... —  read more

Dear Richard,

Please remove employees who aren’t rewarded with “perks” and do not work in El Segundo from your Employee Communication emails. Some of us rarely get to see our children due to your money saving ventures, not to mention what we pay weekly for... —  read more

Ooops- guess getting rid of AG Wilmot was a mistake

Let me get this straight. 133 people are told in April 2018 that they will lose their jobs in January 2019. Meanwhile the company struggles to sell the mold ridden loaction. As expected, the building never sells, and jobs are still cut. Now in June... —  read more

Listen up

OK, congrats to everyone here on surviving the last several layoffs. Now who called this meeting? Does this meet slots & rats? Are we on planogram? Have we focus tested this item yet? What does Dr. Shore say? What, we laid him off? Well as we... —  read more

TRU Coming Back

TRU making its return sometime next year via e-commerce and a few brick and mortar. Looks like we can all breathe a sigh of relief! No layoffs and no reason to make awful low budget s**t films Kronon!

Micro Layoffs

From what I understand Mattel is not laying anyone off. Employees are treated like sh-- till they can't take it anymore and leave. Especially at the distribution centers. Just think of how much they save if you don't get severance or unemployment.

Isaac is “toying” with Mattel

And he is winning, making the leadership team look even more inept than they are. Another round of horrendous results and meaningless conference call banter this quarter will hopefully trigger some other activist disgust.

Can someone from the finance dept help me out?

Last year, Mattel lost $531 million on sales of $4.5 billion. Gross margins were 40%, so 40% of 4.5 billion equals $1.8 billion in profit. So add $1.8 billion to $531 million gets you around $2.3 billion. Divide that by 365 get you around 6.5... —  read more

Seems there may be more to the craziness?

The CEO of MGA is constantly posting emotional, personal and childish posts on linkedin and threatening emails and in media appearances. Impressively unprofessional. How can a guy with so little emotional restraint or common respect expect to... —  read more

Hot Wheels SMART TRACK Will Save Us

OMG... delusional Wu & company think they can charge $6 now by adding a free anti-theft sticker to a dollar car. Oh, and now the kid needs a $40 piece of track to read the car. And a smartphone. And Bluetooth. Our clueless management team is in... —  read more

Isaac is Right

Let's finally overhaul the Board of Directors, management team and the insane number of highly compensated SVP's. If Hello Kitty and a bunch of movies that will never hit the screen is the best we can do we don't have a chance. The $11 share price is... —  read more

Management strategy

Upper management strategy in a nutshell. Cutting product cost is panacea. Force fit new technology into product is innovation. Bottom-line, ship products on schedule. Only to find out that no one want to buy it. —  read more

Are any of the older employees even trying anymore?

From what I see most have given up. They don't even care if everybody can see they're barely doing anything - and I can't blame them. Mattel has made it clear that everybody over 50 (maybe even people in their late 40s) has no future here. So why try... —  read more

Too late to change

A company going nowhere. The incompetency grows every year. Too late to change. Best to sell to Hasbro and maybe give some of the brands other than Barbie and Hot Wheels some hope. Pretty much what exactly what @Zktalry-3xhv said. We need to accept... —  read more
