    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.

    Great company, salary and benefits. Good co-workers, innovative and fun place to work.

    Lacks diversity and very difficult to be promoted.

    Look for more diverse talent, regardless of industry background. Please provide diversity training to current employees including Sr. team so we can retain diverse talent.

    Pros

    Nothing new half day Fridays, Christmas week off toy discounts.

    Cons

    Ms. Thomas is time for you to move on. The company has outgrown your leadership abilities. Finance and IT are Incapable to support Mr. Goldner’s vision and strategy as you lack the big picture mentality. Micromanagement and your personal involvement on matters your highly paid direct reports should be able to address. Your need to be involved in everything brings the teams to the point of paralysis. Behave like the CFO of a large public company not a mom and pop operation Finance manager. The processes at both departments are mostly entirely manual. Very long processing and cycle times. Internal controls bypass is how go to market time is minimized.

    Impossible to move up if you are not personal friends of Ms Thomas or other members of leadership.

    Cost cutting is such that risk of non compliance lurks around every corner. This only seems to affect support functions while Marketing and other groups continue to blow out money on very large global networking events. Very costly as there is no thought given to number of attendees and location they travel from. Same goes for Hong Kong toy fair attendance. Nuremberg toy fair, etc. scrutinize their spending as much as Finance and IT.

    Advice to Management

    Mr. Goldner take a good look at your SMT, put the team on the job market and assess how valuable they are perceived to be by other publicly traded companies. You may be surprised with the results.

    Also rather than laying off low paid employees stop keeping retired executives as consultants as their pay can save 10 or more employees who keep the enterprise going and the lights on.

    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.
