    Former Employee - Market Research in Pawtucket, RI

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

    Pros

    I liked the half day Fridays, the toy store and the week off at Christmas. The job wasn't very hard.

    Cons

    The worst part was office politics and rivalries. I walked right into something I didn't understand, and it took me a while to be comfortable there. Difficult personalities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to know what is expected of you. I felt like I had to guess.

    I have been working at Hasbro full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I love getting to work on brands that I grew up with as a kid. The people are great and the culture is pretty fun and casual. Depending on which group you work for, lots of opportunities for self-starters. Half day Fridays year round and free toys are a nice perk.

    Cons

    HR is extremely disconnected. Brand/role rotations are difficult to orchestrate as internal politics can be challenging to navigate. Lots of bureacracy, top-down decisionmaking, and a large organization make moving forward and innovating very difficult. Pay is on the lower side and training is extremely spotty to non-existent. Hours can be very long and working nights/weekends is often the expectation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are lots of very smart and creative people at the company whose ideas too often go unheard. Figure out a way to foster innovation for big initiatives instead of stifling them with excessive management oversight.

    Current Employee - Rapid Prototyping Coop in Pawtucket, RI

    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.
