    I have been working at Hasbro full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    For the most part Hasbro is a fun company, you work with toys, you work some amazing people and the half day on Friday was nice

    Cons

    Some departments are flexible and work with their staff. I unfortunately was not in that department. I felt unsupported by both upper management and human resources. I was sad I had to look for a job with another company because of the management - but it is a nice change to work for a company that works with your strength and helps improve your weaknesses without making you feel insignificant

    Pros

    You get to work with some of the industry's best professionals, who are super talented and work hard

    Cons

    Expectations are set high and sometimes almost unattainable. Atmosphere from senior management makes it unbearable, most people are not happy with their management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on creating a better environment to work in to help keep employees satisfied and at the company. There are too many great employees leaving for jobs at other companies

    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.

    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.
