It's ok, but not as fun as you might think it would be to work here.

I worked at Lego Group

Pros

The instant company recognition is nice - it's fun to tell people you work at LEGO. Employee discount is good. Benefits are slightly better than average, though pay is lower than average. The company does a good job of stating quarterly/annual goals.

Cons

LEGO brands itself externally and interally as a warm, friendly, family place, but there is definitely a cold, impersonal underside of this company.

Trust is low, and favoritism abounds Denmark. Few to no women in senior leadership roles. Very bureaucratic company. LEGO is no stranger to layoffs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Save the planet, and stop flying people all over the world for meetings that you could do online.

    I have been working at Lego Group

    Pros

    Discount, product knowledge, world recognized name, working with fun people and customers. Easily a conversation starter ("Uh, yeah, I work for Lego. Yeah, that Lego"). Fun building events. Works around your schedule fairly hassle free

    Cons

    Mystery shops. It seems like your performance as an employee (as well as a store) is judged simply on mystery shops. Bonuses and raises are issued out accordingly. It greats a lot of disillusionment. Very little hours throughout most of the year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your teams hard work, it would go a long way.

    I worked at Lego Group

    Pros

    Great company, great product, exceptional brand.
    There are many things that LEGO is doing right and the new CEO is exceptionally smart. STL in the US is doing a good job and has made NA a growing market. They have worked hard to get back to "core LEGO" values and products and out of trying to create TV shows.
    The culture is generally fun and there is a great emphasis on marketing and brand building.

    Cons

    If you are not Danish you have little chance to make it to the top of the company. As others have stated it is a very cliquey group and if you are not one of the "cool kids" you also have little chance to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the core. Listen to the employees within markets better, they know more than you think they do
