What Happens In June?

I've heard that Mattel is "reopening" in June along with most of LA businesses. Will there still be remote working options? Will people be forced to return? What if someone isn't vaccinated? Won't that put them at significant risk? Will they require... —  read more

This place hasn't improved

Yes, there are fewer layoffs but everything else is pretty much the same. We have the same toxic work atmosphere, the same nepotism and cronyism dictating promotions, the same incompetent managers... Also, we have the same lack of innovation and... —  read more

Pay Cuts?

So HR have been in a bad mood recently and there have been all these communications about adjusting pay to ‘market rates’ and how they have been working with a consultant to review pay. And now the comms about discussing with your manager or HR if... —  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 

Before you leave

Before you leave, if you have Kaiser insurance they have a month-long program, I think it's called Prepare to go back to work. It's a great program, you get the whole month off with pay and you go to Kaiser 2x a week for training on how to... —  read more 

A serious question

I know it’s time for me to go. I’ve lived enough cycles of insanity to know I can’t change it. The problems i see are systemic and gigantic and not based solely on individuals. However, there are people and styles that, without purging, will always... —  read more
