One or two trolls entertaining us all.

The Irony of Pantone 219C

How ironic that Barbie pink (Pantone 219C) is also the official color of "pink slip" firing notices? In better days, that color created so many careers here. Now it is ending careers. Way to myopically manage the brand, "upper management"! Bet you'd... read more

Hasbro Employees, Arise!

Even if Hasbro the corporation can't acquire Mattel due to antitrust reasons, there's nothing to stop Hasbro employees from raising enough cash to buy Mattel. With the stock at laughable lows, we can raise more than enough cash with a few car washes... read more

Choose your fuel and feed your actions.

Some observations from one point of view: We work for a public, for-profit company going through hard times. Period. It’s simply the truth. Financial declines are not one-person’s fault. How would that even be possible? We’re a multi billion-dollar... read more

The elephant in the room is a troll.

There's an elephant in the room and it's that there is a troll on these forums. Remember to take everything you read anywhere with a grain of salt. Consider the reason why someone is posting, so you can evaluate if what they are saying is truly... read more

BoD: In-Action Heroes

Yes, I'm pitching a new male action (oops, person inaction) line, M-Go, RD, CS and the whole BoD wearing capes & tights. No superpower, superspeed or supersmarts required. And like He Man and WWF figures, they only have one tired action, endlessly... read more

Shhhhhh. There’s no point in this mindless bickeringatu

The numbers say it all. Plunging to junk status. I wonder if the next low points are steaming pile of crap status and desperate no where to go but down with the ship status. This whole thing is more fun than any piece of garbage you put out in... read more

Fisher-Price: The untouchables have nothing on us!

What's next?

With junk rate status of bonds, Mattel can only borrow at higher interest rates now. It's in a death spiral. F Mattel. Start applying for jobs, work on your resumes, and forget you ever worked for this poorly run company. I've worked at many... read more

Can't survive on old glory

Mattel is reminding me of Mike Brady in Brady Bunch Movie. Taking the same house design from the 1970’s and constantly adding one tweak to it to pretend is something new. This is the perfect description of Mattel if I ever saw one. How long did the... read more

This was low, even for Mattel

Laying people off this close to Christmas is especially low, even for the soulless train-wrack Mattel has become. Did they wait for the worst possible moment to do this? Not to mention, layoffs are the last thing Mattel needs right now. Without... read more

It gets better

I was part of the 2015 layoffs, and while I truly sympathize with everyone being impacted (including those whose job becomes that much more difficult by having to do more with less), I wanted to let you know that there is indeed life at Mattel, and... read more

Who's idea was it to nake TV's Toybox?

Layoff Lesson #1: this is how it is executed

you get called to a designated area (conference room, etc) and your direct supervisor has a script. “as you know, blah blah blah” then they shut up and the HR rep explains your exit package which at this point is next to nothing. your supervisor sits... read more

Major Layoffs Here

Layoffs are happening now, worldwide. Around 1,500 people. Some you probably know. Need to save money so we can buy more technology companies and outsource more of our own innovation and products. The 11th floor MBAs need more money to spend on more... read more

Mattel put shareholders before people

One of the sad things that I learned in this debacle is that Mattel like all other big companies has put the shareholders before the people. It’s one more thing that has contributed to the company’s demise. You can’t do both effectively and let’s... read more

Every industry is in full scale decline now. Every single one. So bad that Americans apparently "have better things to do" than go to NFL games. Yeah, right, as if. No, everyone's either being laid off, losing hours, or seeing layoffs and it's... read more
