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
Topics regarding layoffs at Mattel Inc.
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
Hi, here will sth. big happen in the next time.
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!!
That's the word. Good luck, all!
Mattel has been a dying star for a decade, coasting off its stellar reputation from last millennium. Now it's collapsing in on itself and being strangled by the very fabric of space time. The toy universe will continue without us in the post-corona... — read more
This should not be your “forever” job.
What do you think is going to happen after this is done and Mattel realizes there are so many jobs that can be done remotely? Do you really think you'll be the one still doing it? I have a feeling outsourcing will not be limited to mostly... — read more
Let's compare MATTEL's "core values" to those of KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN during the Corona Crisis, see... — read more
Mattel was never a pillar of efficiency, but it seems like if everyone actually worked 2 hours a day at home that things might actually stabilize, or at least delay the inevitable collapse. I would encourage everyone to NOT slack off, but develop a... — read more
Can you believe it's already been seven years since Mattel launched Boom Co.? It seems like just yesterday. Think of how much the toy industry and retail landscapes have changed in those 7 years. Really gives you some perspective.
An hr source said they’re coming this month and that it will be very bad with lots of people getting lay-offed

Mattel is coming to an end for sure. There is no money no new products no movies no plan just constent cutting to look like we are okay. More layoffs and budget cuts are coming and the here is no hope in site. I don’t know what I am going to do or... — read more

Or just wait till it hits $3?
A little bird in el Segundo told me that nothing is really being produced. Didn’t Ynot build a whole department in LA for this? That’s what everyone here in EMEA thought. Is it fake news? I don’t know what to believe any more.
What was Ynons job? What has he to do with noon?
