    I worked at Hasbro full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You work with toys all day.

    Cons

    Pay for all departments is way below regional averages. Hasbro is more reactionary than innovative due to the conservative senior management team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To attract and keep the most talented individuals Hasbro needs to pay more. Being located in Pawtucket RI is no excuse to pay poorly but that's the HR speak that will be repeated to you over and over again. Most long term employees are embedded and from that area and therefore do not have options. Hasbro clearly takes advantage of this. Hasbro wants a team of low paid worker bees, and clearly not a well paid staff of talented and innovative minds. The members of the senior management staff are the only well paid employees at Hasbro.

    Former Employee - Product Designer in Pawtucket, RI

    I worked at Hasbro full-time for more than 10 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
