Advice to Management

Pay attention to the needs of your work force, and not just the board and Senior Management. Cultivate an informed and knowledgeable work force, and don't reward loyalty with title and positions that people are not qualified to hold. Nothing worse than reporting to a manager or division head who doesn't have a clue about the area of expertise he or she is in charge of. And most importantly, try creating a more diverse work force. It's shameful that there is only one woman in Senior Management, and that you can count on one hand the number of people of color on that same board. As a place the wants to call itself innovative and cutting edge, Hasbro has probably one of the most vanilla workforces going. It's not an issue of location in Providence, as much as it is a symptom of people at the top only wanting to look down and see folks who look and think like them.

    I worked at Hasbro part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in the board game division and it was a very creative environment. Worked with marketers, designers, and other engineers. I learned a lot about manufacturing principles and design specifications.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement, teams tend to get stuck together. A lot of the work given to you comes in waves.

    I worked at Hasbro full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You work with toys all day.

    Cons

    Pay for all departments is way below regional averages. Hasbro is more reactionary than innovative due to the conservative senior management team.

    Advice to Management

    To attract and keep the most talented individuals Hasbro needs to pay more. Being located in Pawtucket RI is no excuse to pay poorly but that's the HR speak that will be repeated to you over and over again. Most long term employees are embedded and from that area and therefore do not have options. Hasbro clearly takes advantage of this. Hasbro wants a team of low paid worker bees, and clearly not a well paid staff of talented and innovative minds. The members of the senior management staff are the only well paid employees at Hasbro.
