    Pros

    We make toys. Disney is a great inventive partner.

    Cons

    Total lack of opportunities for advancement, growth or training. Diversity is a joke at Hasbro. It is very much a white man's/old boys club, especially in departments like IT and finance. Human resources is completely useless and clueless. It is a completely different company depending upon what building you work in and what department you work for.

    Pros

    Location! Location! Location! Just kidding, The usual things mentioned by others, ability to work with brands you know and love. Toy and games discounts at boutique.

    Cons

    Small mentality at the middle management level, silos, many managers very few leaders. Brian is an excellent leader and visionary if he only had the right team to support him in the execution of his strategy........l

    Impossible to advance, much reliance is placed on seniority and Year’s of service. The organization is top heavy and appears aged. New people come in but very quickly their value is diminished due to the need for conformity.

    Curiosity is encouraged in paper while the culture is one of secrecy where information is power. Feels like an oxymoron or hypocritical.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the organization in a holistic basis. Develop an organizational structure that will grow with the business. Time to look at the VPs that report to VPs and have no direct reports and motivate them to move on, allow room for growth within the organization.. Many lower ranked individuals have several direct reports and are not given more private work environment than a cubicle because they are not blue bloods and title less. Time to enter the 21st century.

    I worked at Hasbro full-time

    Pros

    Early release Fridays were nice.

    Cons

    Felt like I was being judged constantly for being "too old" for the department.

    Advice to Management

    I was hired as a temp in Play-Doh Nerf. There was no formal training. Other project managers were supposed to help new team members learn. I was fired by a 22 year old on my 11th day because she didn't think I was going to catch on. If you are going to fire people over 50 anyway, why bother to tease us with the idea of working?
