    I worked at Hasbro full-time

    Pros

    Great brand portfolio
    Benefits/Vacation policy
    Amazing people to work with day to day
    Flexibility although it depends on your manager - not consistent

    Cons

    Age has become a factor in moving ahead.
    Promoting to keep people happy rather than promoting based on qualifications.
    Management team changes to parts of the organization have become demotivating for many.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck - your "difficult decisions" are truly impacting lives and families.
    Although you are trying to make people think their age isn't there enemy it is quite evident it is.
    Look around a lot of the talent is gone.

    Pros

    The philanthropic work the organization does, and supports it's employees in doing, is inspirational.

    Pros

    Half day Friday’s, fun products, pretty good laptops

    Advice to Management

    Get better building that fosters cooperation

    I worked at Hasbro full-time

    Pros

    Great group of social and passionate designers working in the toy design group. Production teams are full of talented professionals with a variety of experience levels. Doesn't feel like the kind of place where you have to climb on the backs of others to be successful.

    Cons

    Hasbro Studios in Burbank is managed in a wonky way by Hasbro Rhode Island. Space is well designed for toy, packaging, and product development, but not super well designed for animation production. Wish there was some emphasis on creating new content rather than reboots of existing IP, but that's deeply engrained in the strategy of Hasbro (not likely to change). Granted that focus has made Hasbro successful, so I understand that it's not necessary to change.

    Advice to Management

    Try to work more on using the amazing IP that you have to be innovative in the animation and film projects that you choose to green-light. And while the brand-blueprint is an amazing tool for creating content that revolves around an existing IP, it would be nice to see some new efforts explored within the animation arena, you've got such talented people, give them the opportunity to pitch something new.

    Pros

    Great team of people.
    Lots of talent.
    3 Weeks PTO & "Unlimited Sick"

    Cons

    Too many managers / seniors. Not enough entry-level.
    Very difficult to find opportunities to move up or advance your career.
    Management is often blind to your contributions.
    Paid well below the local averages.

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of your people's contributions.

    Pros

    The creative, finance and project management teams are outstanding and relentless in their commitment and efforts to make innovative, gorgeous products on schedule and on budget.

    Cons

    Some R.I. Management staff members don't acquiesce to office etiquette and ethics. I don't understand how someone can get away with referring to female colleagues in an inappropriate sexual manner, bragging about getting 'polluted', aka inebriated and boasting because they behave like a bulldog.

    Advice to Management

    Have continued ethics training for the longterm employees who thing they are above office etiquette and ethics.

    There are plenty of websites with workplace professionalism training courses.
