    I have been working at Hasbro as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Hasbro was very fast with the hiring process and taught me a lot as a coop. I came in at the end of my 2nd year in college so I acquired a great deal of knowledge.

    Cons

    Non applicable. Management was great and my team was awesome. I don't think I've ever even seen someone get mad at another employee in this department. Very impressive and positive work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your coops a little more. We do the same amount of work and same tasks as full time employees who have been here from a range of 1- 30 years yet we barely make any money.

    I have been working at Hasbro part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They pay well for part-time, offer great time off. Most flexible job I have ever had. It give a chance to be around different people and situations everyday. You are basically the manager of your own little company. Great leadership and bosses that work with you. Great 401 k option.

    Cons

    The only thing is that you have to have another job or a trust fund to survive. I just wish it was full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work and maybe consider expanding your merchandisers to full time. I think you would be pleased with the result and it would not really cost as much as you would think.

    I have been working at Hasbro

    Pros

    Lots of accountability and lots of training when start with company and continues on going, toys are a fun product to merchandise.

    Cons

    No flexibility in schedule or times to work, no evening and even though part time, must work every day so it is only part time regarding total hours but they are spread out over a person's week so hard to do other work. Micro-managing is common place. And have to sign in at vendor log, then must get every in store project logged for time and a manager must sign which causes a loss of credibility for the merchandiser and managers even question each project versus start and end of shift...they want you to have responsibility over the store as your own, hours are set for you and then they treat you like a child with all of the required signatures. It is awkward for store personnel and the Hasbro rep because it is as if there is no respect from own corporate office.

    Pros

    Colleagues on my team were very friendly, half day Friday's, discounts at the toy store

    Upper level management would not care to listen to you or try to help you out in certain predicaments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to lower coworkers. They sometimes see more out in the field than you might

    I have been working at Hasbro full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Christmas week off; Half-day Fridays. Most of the people are super nice, collaborative and focused on mentoring and partnering. Top management at HQ is accessible even when I work in a regional office. Latin-america is doing very good in terms of numbers.

    Cons

    -The Hasbro-Miami office is not aligned with HQ in terms of culture and values.
    -The top two managers at the Miami for Latam have created a toxic environment in the office that is affecting negatively not only the morale of the people but also the performance. Most of the staff is demoralized to the point where it's just a 8 to 6 job for them rather than being excited about working at a company that makes a difference and that cares about its workforce. The worst of the kind I have ever seen.
    -Backstabbing, bullying is permitted since it comes from the top management in the office all the way down.
    -Senior Management lacks the ability to make decisions. Lots of talk of caring about employees and their opinions but in reality top management doesn't want to hear criticism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the Top management of the company, you should reprimand the heads of this office and align them with the corporate culture values of the company. This office is in the US not in Mexico where they can treat people like their servants. Treat people with respect, not as cheap disposable toys. With no solid prospects for the next few years and a bleak outlook in a stagnant industry, know that being good to your people is key to fueling a creative culture to perform well and innovate. Stop the in-fighting and focus on the business.
