    Pros

    You get to work with some of the industry's best professionals, who are super talented and work hard

    Cons

    Expectations are set high and sometimes almost unattainable. Atmosphere from senior management makes it unbearable, most people are not happy with their management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on creating a better environment to work in to help keep employees satisfied and at the company. There are too many great employees leaving for jobs at other companies

    I have been working at Hasbro as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people I have encountered have been great. The product lines are also driven by fun. I have worked for brands that just don't inspire. Hasbro products do. On top of that, the company believes in giving back and empowering employees to make a difference.

    Cons

    They only hire the best of the best and getting in the door can be a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balance out some of the MBA 's with more people that know how to get things done.

    I worked at Hasbro as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    All the people at Hasbro were extremely helpful and it was a great work environment for a first co-op. Thou it wasn't as technical and mechanically intensive as I would have liked I still learned a lot and had an amazing experience.

    Cons

    Not a great place if you want technical engineering experience, but you do learn a lot about the business aspect of it all. Very fun job that you actually do get as much out of it as you put into it.

    Pros

    I liked the half day Fridays, the toy store and the week off at Christmas. The job wasn't very hard.

    Cons

    The worst part was office politics and rivalries. I walked right into something I didn't understand, and it took me a while to be comfortable there. Difficult personalities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to know what is expected of you. I felt like I had to guess.

    Current Employee - Rapid Prototyping Coop in Pawtucket, RI

    I have been working at Hasbro as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Hasbro was very fast with the hiring process and taught me a lot as a coop. I came in at the end of my 2nd year in college so I acquired a great deal of knowledge.

    Cons

    Non applicable. Management was great and my team was awesome. I don't think I've ever even seen someone get mad at another employee in this department. Very impressive and positive work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your coops a little more. We do the same amount of work and same tasks as full time employees who have been here from a range of 1- 30 years yet we barely make any money.

    I have been working at Hasbro part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They pay well for part-time, offer great time off. Most flexible job I have ever had. It give a chance to be around different people and situations everyday. You are basically the manager of your own little company. Great leadership and bosses that work with you. Great 401 k option.

    Cons

    The only thing is that you have to have another job or a trust fund to survive. I just wish it was full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work and maybe consider expanding your merchandisers to full time. I think you would be pleased with the result and it would not really cost as much as you would think.

    I have been working at Hasbro

    Pros

    Lots of accountability and lots of training when start with company and continues on going, toys are a fun product to merchandise.

    Cons

    No flexibility in schedule or times to work, no evening and even though part time, must work every day so it is only part time regarding total hours but they are spread out over a person's week so hard to do other work. Micro-managing is common place. And have to sign in at vendor log, then must get every in store project logged for time and a manager must sign which causes a loss of credibility for the merchandiser and managers even question each project versus start and end of shift...they want you to have responsibility over the store as your own, hours are set for you and then they treat you like a child with all of the required signatures. It is awkward for store personnel and the Hasbro rep because it is as if there is no respect from own corporate office.
