    Pros

    Great hours, great benefits, competitive salary, fun products to deal with and work around. Product discounts at the company store and online. Fun parties and events. Moderate opportunity for advancement if you get in the right job and prove yourself with the right people. Friendly co-workers and a beautiful building.

    Cons

    Good ole boy system in my department and an attitude of superiority that is just over done. Lot's of bad blood from years of acquisitions and layoffs. Not a great deal of loyalty. Only the top people make decisions on anything (and on everything). Employees who do the work have little to no value on projects they take on in management's eyes. Unless you are a VP you will feel like you have no say in anything including the color of a product you might be working on.

    Advice to Management

    Move the spotlight around and listen to your people. Get rid of certain managers who are unable to perform due to bias and jerk store syndrome. Stop pretending to know everything on the detailed level and stick to the big picture. Let the intelligent and talented people you hired give you their expert opinion and assume they might be right because when you change something it really destroys a lot of hard work and usually makes no sense.

    Hasbro was once a great company, but they lost their way.

    Pros

    It used to be a family of people working together to make great, safe products, at a profit. Like any other business it had its deadlines and stresses, but it was all for a good reason.

    Cons

    People who thought they knew the business better than those who had succeeded for years tried to make it fit a different model. Once the new experts tried one reorganization after another, all the money for proper development was depleted.

    Advice to Management

    Stop moving things around and let the experts do what they do best.
