    A great place to work that could be even better with a few small changes

    Project Engineering Co-Op (Former Employee)
    Pawtucket, RI

    ProsGreat atmosphere to work in; Flexibility to move to different teams throughout the company; Learned a lot about the development of consumer goods while here

    ConsBecause there was so much flexibility to move to different teams (pro), there were a lot of team changes and learning curves to overcome when new people came (very often)- added to this is the fact that every team here does things a little differently (more than would be expected), so there is sometimes confusion on how things should be done.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to get experience, not the best place to help you grow

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI've met amazing people who are great at what they do. You're always on your toes as each toy season there are new projects and new product to promote.

    ConsFrom day one I was told that "if you want to make a competitive salary for the field you are in, you must leave the company and come back at a higher position".

    Working there was unnecessarily difficult.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsHalf-day Fridays; on-site, discount toy shop; Christmas week off; liberal work-from-home policies; genuine regard for employee safety and wellness.

    ConsFrequent, puzzling layoffs; a "Hurry up and fail," quasi-committed senior management attitude; little regard for process or best practices; employees are frequently pigeon-holed in dead-end roles.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop re-imagining, start imagining.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I am an 8 year full time employee

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people are super nice, collaborative and very focused on mentoring and partnering. The environment is fun and the company tries too ffer programs to balance all aspects of the employee's life.

    ConsDeadlines can be tough. Change is constant which is difficult for some people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to keep the communication lines open...the employees have great ideas and can make huge contributions.

    Fun, Passion, Energy!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsHasbro is a great place to work. If company culture (how employees are treated, are they recognized for hard work, are they respected) is important to you, then you are looking in a good place. At the end of the day, it is a bunch of very passionate people who all work very hard to get the best toys and games on the shelf. Half day Fridays every week, all year long also help! You have to learn to strike a balance between work and life, but you own that yourself.

    ConsSure every company has their faults, but overall, Hasbro is family friendly, flexible and fun.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFriendly environment where employees are devoted to their work and the growth of the company. Half day Fridays are a great perk.
