I have been working at Hasbro full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

It is a friendly company, descent health insurance and has a lot of perks.

Cons

Every department is different. Management is different. Some excel, some don't. Find it hard to get promoted with in the department. Sometimes there is unfairness.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To inform, to have more meetings. To interact with the individual contributors. Not just with supervisors. To really look at performance reviews. I don't understand why I have to do one, get good feed back from my management, but yet do not get recognized through higher management for promotions. Just verbally told, not put into action.

    Pros

    There are some truly talented, smart people working at Hasbro. None of them are in a position of authority and they should be.

    Cons

    There is no encouragement for work/life balance at all. You are expected to be on call 24/7 even when you are not scheduled. Do more with less is the order of the day with no thought given to the stress level of the employee. Expect to work late often, get called at 2:00am for a problem that could wait until regular business hours and always be ready for the never ending rounds of meeting after meeting that accomplish very little. Like no raises? No promotions regardless how hard you work? Bad food in the cafeteria? Do you like being stuck in a corner and forgotten? But wait there's more. Incompetent managers and directors that give little or no direction and have been known to give directions that contradict previous directions given.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask any it employee about it management, most will shake their head an say "What are you gonna do? It's the new regime. You should be careful" Has anyone heard the word regime in a good context. Advice to management, listen to your people, they can make you look great if you let them. Sweep up the eggshells you have everyone tiptoeing over and let them do their job. If someone stumbles help him up and ask him to try better next time.

    I worked at Hasbro

    Pros

    Projects turn over really quickly so you're always working on something new. Interesting experience to work there with the time change between US and China. The company is awesome and treats theirs employees well with fun events like olympics and three wheeler races in the employee parking lot.

    Cons

    Didn't seem like much opportunity to move up but instead you just move to different teams. Upper management changes direction often at the expense of the employees who have to implement the change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more accountable for the changes made late in the design process.
