Delivering happiness to the kids, but fighting trench wars inside

Digital Marketing (Former Employee)
Billund (Denmark)

I worked at Lego Group full-time for more than 8 years

ProsWho doesn't like LEGO? The products are awesome, designers building those products are even more awesome. That is one big luck for LEGO. Plus couple of people on top who come up with really good visions, sadly though they are not persistent in pushing them through the lower levels.

ConsIt's all about politics. It doesn't matter how much and how good you work. If you can navigate thick net of politics you get ahead. If not or you are disgusted by it, then there is very few people appreciating your good work.

All the senior managers and directors think about KPIs delivering their bonuses. That affects any innovative thinking. After all it's too risky to implement new things if it endangers your bonus. Even if it may prove to be good for the company in the end.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet better in implementing your visions and strategies through all levels of the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Fantastic benefits, cool product

Programmer (Former Employee)

I worked at Lego Group full-time


Pros: The benefits are fantastic - absolutely world class - and they're a recognizable brand. Guaranteed,… Cons: LEGO is a very top-heavy company. They're slow to adapt to changing market conditions, and as a result, sometimes it'll feel like you're moving in… Advice to Senior Management: Work on being more adaptive, on being able to pivot smaller business components (ie. your initiates… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
