As a mother I would never buy another Mattel toy after seeing the Muslim/Fat/Transgender Barbies 'gender neutral' toy lineup, etc. I don't share Mattel's commitment to feminism, g--s, transgender freak, Muslims, fatsos, and general America-hating... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Mattel Inc.
How many in the entire company
Rumor in EA is thar ES had their holiday party in Universal Studios. True?
Anyone know if the Mattel cash balance and Fisher Price Pension plans are safe from being tampered with?
Good luck with that.
Reading the negative posts, what becomes obvious rather quickly, is that there is only 1 MAYBE 2 trolls here. The complaints are the same, the foul language is the same, etc. So, bravo! You are very entertaining and humorous and seem to have gathered... read more
How ironic that Barbie pink (Pantone 219C) is also the official color of "pink slip" firing notices? In better days, that color created so many careers here. Now it is ending careers. Way to myopically manage the brand, "upper management"! Bet you'd... read more
Even if Hasbro the corporation can't acquire Mattel due to antitrust reasons, there's nothing to stop Hasbro employees from raising enough cash to buy Mattel. With the stock at laughable lows, we can raise more than enough cash with a few car washes... read more
So What happens if I'm laid off while I'm out on disability? Will they call or wait till I'm back. Is there anyway to know?
Some observations from one point of view: We work for a public, for-profit company going through hard times. Period. It’s simply the truth. Financial declines are not one-person’s fault. How would that even be possible? We’re a multi billion-dollar... read more
There's an elephant in the room and it's that there is a troll on these forums. Remember to take everything you read anywhere with a grain of salt. Consider the reason why someone is posting, so you can evaluate if what they are saying is truly... read more
Yes, I'm pitching a new male action (oops, person inaction) line, M-Go, RD, CS and the whole BoD wearing capes & tights. No superpower, superspeed or supersmarts required. And like He Man and WWF figures, they only have one tired action, endlessly... read more
Before you go on a rant or even post anything at all could you please remind us all of the current Stock price? 14.60 now, no? By the time you post the numbers should be... Come on genius, keep track of the numbers and remind us all.
The numbers say it all. Plunging to junk status. I wonder if the next low points are steaming pile of crap status and desperate no where to go but down with the ship status. This whole thing is more fun than any piece of garbage you put out in... read more
Yeah bud. You got me. (in case your IQ isn’t up to par, that’s called irony.). Loser. No seriously: Biggest Loser. And stop trying to prove how smart you are. You’re the idiot stuck there with no where to go. Someone call Dr. Pimplepopper cause that... read more
You’re still there. Doesn’t matter what you to say to anyone outside of that festering boil you call the Design Center. You should rename it the garage for the terminally delusional and install wheelchair ramps because how you even get dressed for... read more
We are safe. We are solid and once again the AMAZING TALENTED FOLKS at FP (NYC & EA) will carry your sorry backsides in ES for a few more months until the next layoff when you’re culled once again. You can’t mess with success folks. Things might not... read more
With junk rate status of bonds, Mattel can only borrow at higher interest rates now. It's in a death spiral. F Mattel. Start applying for jobs, work on your resumes, and forget you ever worked for this poorly run company. I've worked at many... read more
Congrats! Thanks RD! Hasbro help!
Mattel is reminding me of Mike Brady in Brady Bunch Movie. Taking the same house design from the 1970’s and constantly adding one tweak to it to pretend is something new. This is the perfect description of Mattel if I ever saw one. How long did the... read more
Laying people off this close to Christmas is especially low, even for the soulless train-wrack Mattel has become. Did they wait for the worst possible moment to do this? Not to mention, layoffs are the last thing Mattel needs right now. Without... read more
I was part of the 2015 layoffs, and while I truly sympathize with everyone being impacted (including those whose job becomes that much more difficult by having to do more with less), I wanted to let you know that there is indeed life at Mattel, and... read more
Anyone hear about what's going to happen to the finance departments in ES?
RD and the BoD have been VERY naughty. Maybe next year, M-Go! https://www.glassdoor.com/Award/Best-Places-to-Work-LST_KQ0,19.htm
I was only given a 2 paycheck package so it's an absolute disaster for me.
All the crap endorsed by the show is insulting, and seems like an open call for trolls who live in their mom's garage to submit ideas. Do the designers there have no pride or dignity? Them d@mned place needs outside help to design toys? Let it sink... read more
you get called to a designated area (conference room, etc) and your direct supervisor has a script. “as you know, blah blah blah” then they shut up and the HR rep explains your exit package which at this point is next to nothing. your supervisor sits... read more
Layoffs are happening now, worldwide. Around 1,500 people. Some you probably know. Need to save money so we can buy more technology companies and outsource more of our own innovation and products. The 11th floor MBAs need more money to spend on more... read more
The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout. Down came the rain and washed the spider out...
Nothing this week I hear, is it next week now?
This site sees plenty of posts from our brothers and sisters here in El Segundo, but we often are left in the dark as to how things are going at the satellite offices and subsidiary brands. Let's get some status reports: Madison, how's it going?... read more
Anybody knows what's going on today at Mattel? If there were to be layoffs yesterday and today we should have known by now... Unless I am missiing something, and I am just lucky that my location is not being hit... It looks like the next week... read more
Today’s the day folks! we have to wait for the west coast clowns to start their day before the bloodletting begins. Remember, pack your stuff in preparation and that they have NO RIGHT to search your bags. Take what you can and be sure to flip off... read more
the new CTO seems to be only hiring his cronnies from DTV. They just sold out to ma-bell, so are we in the same boat? Are they just joining here to gut us and sell us off?
One of the sad things that I learned in this debacle is that Mattel like all other big companies has put the shareholders before the people. It’s one more thing that has contributed to the company’s demise. You can’t do both effectively and let’s... read more
