They let at least two pregnant women go last week, one at AG and one in NYC.
I've always felt that the work benefits at Mattel have been great. The number of days off, the half-day Fridays, company match, etc. Very good. As for Maternity, The reason it's called a disability is that the paid family leave act of 2004 put the maternity leave under state disability. It has nothing to do with why they call it something. You pay state disability insurance. I'm not sure when you had your child, but california law is 12 weeks, which is what someone who I knew that had a child 4 years ago got. Additionally, you can have four more months of protected unpaid leave. I will never complain about the Mattel Benefits. I plan to use them to take a nice vacation and utilize the outplacement services as much as I can as I know I'll likely not have a chance like this again. I just don't like the corporate politics, protectionism, cronyism, and all the other crappy directions that company has taken with it's people and product lines.
So, ladies and gents, how do you explain that 16 employees on Glassdoor gave the highest marks (4.5 out of 5) to our company? Here are some tidbits: "Benefits at Mattel are excellent, they give great health insurance, and match 401K. Many personal days are given throughout the year and the additional days at the end of the year between Christmas and the New Year are great. Also, the 1/2 Fridays are nice to have for an extended weekend." --- or --- "Excellent 401k match, health insurance options, company holidays, and other creative benefits" --- or --- "Excellent benefits, above market 401(k) match. Best part is 17 holidays given per year in addition to vacation time"
Here's a ton of positive reasons about our company for the EXECUTIVES: />
Thanks HR for this wonderfully timed post for Monday am employees as they check this page, but guess what the website is called downloadbesttorrentblog.rus.com because we are talking about Mattel's habitual layoffs. Besides - MGA already beat you to the well-timed placed post punch. Once again, another case of "me too" for Mattel. Always late to the party. Mattel will never get it right.
Really there? I've had children while employed at Mattel and guess what....They follow the BARE legal minimum when employees choose to go on maternity leave. Mattel could really set a new standard for leave - seeing that they are a "child development" company. But no, they only do was it asked of them, no more. People are paid 6 weeks for natural deliveries and 8 weeks for cesarean section. Per the law. Did you know that people are paid not maternity pay, but - disability pay. That's right, disability pay, because clearly you are disabled upon childbirth. Again per the law. Where are all the acronyms now, Mattel? The chance to lead the company pack and comp other more progressive countries is not high on the priority list for Mattel since this would COST the company MONEY. Put that in you glassdoor and shut it.
