    I have been working at Lego Group part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Our mission - to inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow. Seeing kids walking into the store being amazed with all the sculptures made out of LEGO bricks is fantastic and rewarding. Flexible hours. High standards for customer service.

    Cons

    Mainly the same problem in all retail locations - the resellers trying to buy in bulk and con-people trying to work the system. SAP system needs to improve drastically.

    Pros

    The product is universally known and widely loved; meet lots of interesting guests; coworkers tend to be great people to work with

    Cons

    Corporate management is out of touch; store management is inconsistent and focused on metrics; guests can be extremely difficult, particularly with the massive expansion of foreign guests.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize your people are people and the job is stressful without the pay most stressful jobs get and align expectations accordingly...

    Release schedules earlier. I'm sure this is a decision made by each store manager. Our schedule would come out on Thursday for the upcoming Monday.

    I worked at Lego Group part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a fun place to work and most people are really interested in either the products or kids in general. It's one of the few ways to get a good discount on Legos if you love them. They hold to high standards of service and work environment, ideally you're just as happy at your job as the customers are visiting the store.

    Cons

    There can be some pressure at times (not as bad as most places though!), and you probably won't be able to get access to any type of truly fun job (to make a career of like being a builder, etc) from working in a retail store.

    Very passionate about the employees; Made a real effort to improve company environment.

    A strong brand with kind, hard working employees

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Lego Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Employees have a high ethical standard. There is a strong sense of community and an intense loyalty for the LEGO brand and the mission of the company.

    Cons

    Danish cultural norms pervade the global corporate culture. There are pros to this but it can hinder the ability for localization efforts (of the product and corporate culture) and can be frustrating at times for non-Danish residents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
