      Pros

      Competitive pay Great bonus Great coworkers 50% off Mattel toys Half Fridays Good name to have on your resume if new to the work force Pay is transparent . What you see on Glassdoor is what you’ll most likely get Generous with company holidays throughout the year

      Cons

      The company doesn’t invest in the people. Ex. Employee well being. No clear vertical career path at the company. Your best bet in landing a promotion is if you’re in a team with a good boss who pushes for it. Otherwise, you’ll be in the same title for years. There are people here who have been SFA for 10+ years. They do encourage, sometimes force, rotations but this leads to zero correlations with promotion. The moment you move roles, you’re basically starting from scratch again and you’re expected to spend at least 1 year there to feel “comfortable”. You’ll also notice that mattel is always hiring in the finance department. This is not because of growing headcount but because of high turnover.
