    I worked at Hasbro full-time (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 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.

    At Hasbro you become an expert at many things and a specialist at nothing. No clear career path.

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

    Pros

    There are many areas for a creative to move and all, are very interesting as interns and entry level you get LOTS of responsibility which is great.

    Cons

    There are many areas for a creative to move unfortunately it is laterally but I must say I loved my job and I never bored. Just wish the career path was there HR really doesn't help nor managers. They are ineffective because their hands are tied.Creative hit a glass ceiling at art director.

    Advice to Management

    Work on career paths for creatives and mentoring from managers, It seems at Hasbro everybody is reinventing the wheel. Very inefficient I think that is why people of worth get frustrated and leave. To bad the people / workers are great!
