What happened to this site?

What happened to this once vibrant and informative community? Now days I hardly ever see any new posts and the few post that are made hardly ever get any replies. It's so sad to see what's become of the once great The Layoff Mattel board.

We deserve to go bankrupt

When's the last time we came up with something original, something engaging, something worth everybody's attention? Can anybody remember? All we do now is copy of a copy of a copy. Oh, and a new version that's just like the copy but not really. Is... —  read more 

401K Match

I came here looking for information about Mattel. It looks like a lot of you don't have very many good things to say. Covid has hit my family hard economically, and I need a job....even if it is just for a while. My question is what is positive... —  read more

More Topics Deleted

It seems that yet another constructive discussion on racism has been purged from this site. Nothing in these threads appears to violate the rules regarding content on this website, so it's unclear why they keep getting deleted. I feel strongly... —  read more 


Did Mattel participate in the CARES Act? If so, they are obliged to keep the majority of employees through a certain date only. Furloughed employees need to be back on by end of June, if returning.

CEO 2019 bonus!!

$4.4M!! And Dickie d—son.. $1.9M! They don’t care about the health of Mattel!! They are laughing all the way to the bank! Forget saving jobs! forget doing the right thing! We are swirling the drain and the board rewards them!

Time is up

This is an open letter to Enon: It’s time you wash your hands of RD. In the 6 years he’s been back, he’s authored lots of marketing ideas (that cost more than they’re worth) but not ONE of them has been a commercial success - which is what Mattel so... —  read more
