Seeing how horrible the company is doing at this point I'm sure we won't, but wasn't sure if anyone had any info. Im guessing everyone's will be taken away so we can give it to RD to make sure he's satisfied.

Topics regarding layoffs at Mattel Inc.
Mattel stock remains in the doldrums as the Market is setting new records. It's over for Mattel, our leadership is a bad joke. The people running the business are only running it into the ground. Time to sell off our major brands and sell them... read more
What's the general feeling at AG about being a Mattel subsidiary? 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of us acquiring you, and yet I always get a feeling of resentment towards your parent company from you guys, almost as if the association with Mattel... read more
date not set but interviews to be given for transfers to EA or ES. the end of an era. :(
M-Go was brought in one year ago. Stock price has steadily declined to half of what it was then. How long does or should a company keep a new CEO when things continue to decline? Let's face it, this all boils back to the CEO.
The quarter will be a complete disaster and CS, RD and Miss NoGo will continue with big bonuses too. What's up with this place when the peons pay the price and the top lives on despite ongoing failures.
He must have been really desperate to come back to the EA campus or really missed kathy’s vegetable soup on weds. in the cafeteria. I hope he got a good bonus and parachute. that will go a long way in wexlers.
The Industry is now in a decline and will remain that way There are no products in the pipeline that will make a difference The leadership team is not proven in this business or consumers products No confidence from Wall Street Costs will escalate... read more
Told you fools we should have done a tesla. no one listens.
It’s not a strategy problem, it’s an attitude problem. It’s easy to point fingers at management when things are down. However, there is no “I” in team. Therefore all of you are accountable. Always remember, winning attitude brings winning results.
If even toy sales are down so badly versus 2016, how in the world could overall retail have had a good christmas, as the news is saying? Yeah, call me crazy for suspecting it's BS, but I've now seen how execs, managers, all kinds of supposedly... read more
New Year's is a great time for individuals to reflect, reboot, make new changes, goals & paths for the coming year. The emphasis is on CHANGE, as in IMPROVING. How tragic and depressing to return to Mattel in January knowing that none of that will... read more
I was Layed off posting this crap here is totally creepy who are you ? HR? This is another example of hiw disconnected Mattel management is. What a bunch of buffoons !!! My heart is broken to see a iconic company being driven to the ground by these... read more
As we wind down the calendar year, it often singles a time to reflect. For Mattel this year, what victories are you most proud? For Mattel next year what opportunities do you most look forward to embracing?
There us no resent activity! I guess everyone writing got laid off
How many in the entire company
Rumor in EA is thar ES had their holiday party in Universal Studios. True?
Anyone know if the Mattel cash balance and Fisher Price Pension plans are safe from being tampered with?
Good luck with that.
Reading the negative posts, what becomes obvious rather quickly, is that there is only 1 MAYBE 2 trolls here. The complaints are the same, the foul language is the same, etc. So, bravo! You are very entertaining and humorous and seem to have gathered... read more
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
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
So What happens if I'm laid off while I'm out on disability? Will they call or wait till I'm back. Is there anyway to know?
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
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
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
Before you go on a rant or even post anything at all could you please remind us all of the current Stock price? 14.60 now, no? By the time you post the numbers should be... Come on genius, keep track of the numbers and remind us all.
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
Yeah bud. You got me. (in case your IQ isn’t up to par, that’s called irony.). Loser. No seriously: Biggest Loser. And stop trying to prove how smart you are. You’re the idiot stuck there with no where to go. Someone call Dr. Pimplepopper cause that... read more
You’re still there. Doesn’t matter what you to say to anyone outside of that festering boil you call the Design Center. You should rename it the garage for the terminally delusional and install wheelchair ramps because how you even get dressed for... read more
We are safe. We are solid and once again the AMAZING TALENTED FOLKS at FP (NYC & EA) will carry your sorry backsides in ES for a few more months until the next layoff when you’re culled once again. You can’t mess with success folks. Things might not... read more
Congrats! Thanks RD! Hasbro help!
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
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
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
