    Pros

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

    Cons

    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 (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.

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

    Former Employee - Project Engineering Co-Op in Pawtucket, RI
    Former Employee - Project Engineering Co-Op in Pawtucket, RI

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Because 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.

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

    Pros

    I'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.

    Cons

    From 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".

    I worked at Hasbro full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Frequent, 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 ManagementAdvice

    Stop re-imagining, start imagining.

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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