Everyone knows how much the CEO will ride into the sunset with, why not let everyone in the company know Mattel’s dirty little secret? Who makes more? Men or women? Does that nasty little a**kisser actually make more than you? Post it! Post it here!... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Mattel Inc.
Best news for Mattel since Covid! https://www.wsj.com/articles/toys-are-selling-but-mattel-and-hasbro-arent-cashing-in-11595869248 https://globaltoynews.com/2020/07/27/remote-working-is-not-working/
Hot Wheels partners with IWC Stuffyhouse watch company? I don’t think the rich people who can afford their watches are into Hot Wheels collecting. Remember you can’t take any gifts over $100,
Tomorrow earnings will be announced. Dolls and cars should do ok, but the real winners are purposeful play items like games, puzzles, arts & crafts and outdoor activities. Dollars are up, but in more expensive items than unit consumption volume.
What’s next, Holly Hobby?
it's been 2275 since Mattel announced a deal with Sony to make a Barbie movie. In the announcement the project was said to be "moving very quickly".
Just looked and their site says: "We've found 27 Mattel Jobs near you!" So they're replacing the layed-off with cheaper employees. Or they're just id–ts.
Was this just a unfortunate oversight or a deliberate decision? What are your thoughts on Mattel publicly celebrating Canada Day but not the Fourth of July?
Mattel Appoints Anthony DiSilvestro As CFO
Congratulations everybody, you've stooped to bickering about 'wokeness' and fighting with each other vs holding the goons at the top responsible. Mattel status quo. RD's problem is not solely his stupid Linkedin posts (although those are pretty f'ing... — read more
Richard - can you please stop posting headlines about disingenuous statements about every single social media crisis of the day and MAKE A PROFIT!!!!! All this social unrest is important - but it’s second for Mattel on the list of PRIORITIES - #1... — read more
Literally a Red Sun. Inevitable.
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.
$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!
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
Enough bi+ching aleady, we know Mattel $uck$. How many people, what departments, which jobs?
This is the worst workplace!!!!!!! Talk about culture and wellness its all complete b—s— & no one cares!!ynon doesn’t care at all - RD being next CEO? Zero chance. The layoffs prove management has no clue. Basically Reputation inside totally... — read more
I have worked at many Fortune 500s, including Mattel when it was one. Management is terrible. They lack vision, execution and courage to adapt. I thought that getting a CEO from the entertainment industry was a smart move, but most of the other... — read more
This is getting ridiculous.
With our current leadership? We were doing badly as it is, I don't see us coming back from this mess unscratched - or at all. I think we'll be joining Toys R' Us very soon...
I just walked the lay-off bridge. Thank goodness I can enjoy Christmas for the first time in forever. Now just that ‘little’ detail about dismal personal finances and lack of immediate job prospects.
Has seen RD as the President and COO and a downward spiral. The c suite has changed over 2x and the CEO 4!! What is the common denominator here!?? We have a defunct BOD who clearly have no since of decency or ethics as the continent to FAIL the... — read more
Who the heck are we kidding!? And who’s paying the Mad Money guy??
Ynon's new buzzword "Capital Light" sure sounds great but it means the end of Mattel. It means short-term, short sighted, low-risk, no innovation, licensed toys. As if we weren't playing it too safe for decades: Bratz coulda been ours, it was home... — read more
Bad, worse, or the worst? Discuss.
To the person saying "how hard is it to stay out of the bottom 4%" It's not so simple at Mattel. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder: if you don't fit in to whomever is in charge of your Mattel destiny, you are in trouble. There are PLENTY of people... — read more
NPD says overall toys sales were up 8%. Hasbro reports sales up 20%. Mattel posts a 14% DECLINE in sales! What the heck are you people doing?!
The most irreverent toy out there.
Let's see if Ynon can talk the price back up on the earning call with the usual nonsense and lies.
Just wondering. Former staffer, happy to be gone. For anyone who did get laid off: life is much better outside of the archaic management structure and "we've always done it this way" mentality.
What will happen from July 2020?
The only way to make money with Mattel is to short the stock. Hasbro released their earnings today and we could only dream to have their numbers. It is going to be bad, very bad. We need to lay off about another 20% of the workforce just to stay... — read more
Does anyone know why the Mattel audit team still has jobs? SEC Fraud is a fireable offense, no? Then I heard they all got big bonuses? Meanwhile the stock is in a nose-dive.
How embarrassing must it be to Mattel’s audit team who screwed the company so badly that the SEC has to step in? If layoffs are happening, the over-bloated management team needs to go first - start with the VP’s of AUDIT!
Any chance Ynot is out and dickie is in?
The Movies will save us!!
