    Great coworkers, questionable management staff

    Brick Specialist (Current Employee) Orlando, FL

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Company. Very supportive and positive.

    Supervisor (Former Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsExceptional team- work is fun every day
    Great benefits (employee exclusive LEGO Set and additional Holiday gifts and bonuses
    Wonderful corporate culture

    ConsGeneral shortcomings associated with Retail:
    Stressful atmosphere during busy times
    Occasional trouble guest
    Sometimes there are communication gaps
    Hours vary throughout the year

    Advice to Senior ManagementRelease 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.

    Sales Associate

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) Columbus, OH

    ProsIt'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.

    ConsThere 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.

    Holistic & "family company"

    Concept Artist (Former Employee) Louisville, CO

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

    ConsUnfortunately our stint with becoming part of the LEGO Group was cut short. The decision was rather sudden and dissatisfying.

    A strong brand with kind, hard working employees

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsEmployees 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.

    ConsDanish 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 Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!
