    I worked at Hasbro as an intern

    Pros

    Amazingly helpful people everywhere you turn! There is always work to be done and lots of flexibility in the projects you can take on. Constantly working with cross-functional team members at all stages of the product development cycle.

    Cons

    Requires more communication skills than technical skills to thrive. Always ask or initiate questions; some parts may not be given to you directly.

    I worked at Hasbro as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    All the people at Hasbro were extremely helpful and it was a great work environment for a first co-op. Thou it wasn't as technical and mechanically intensive as I would have liked I still learned a lot and had an amazing experience.

    Cons

    Not a great place if you want technical engineering experience, but you do learn a lot about the business aspect of it all. Very fun job that you actually do get as much out of it as you put into it.

    I have been working at Hasbro as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people I have encountered have been great. The product lines are also driven by fun. I have worked for brands that just don't inspire. Hasbro products do. On top of that, the company believes in giving back and empowering employees to make a difference.

    Cons

    They only hire the best of the best and getting in the door can be a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balance out some of the MBA 's with more people that know how to get things done.

    I worked at Hasbro full-time (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 (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.

    I have been working at Hasbro as an intern (less than an 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 (more than an 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.
