    Pros

    (Hasbro Studios LA) Stable company with a consistent if uninspired track record. Terrific benefits.

    Cons

    Cult of Personality thrives and truth seekers do not.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention. Stop with the culture of synchophants.

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

    Pros

    To fall in line, I will say Half Day Fridays

    Cons

    Take your time and read all reviews. You should see the pattern of Half Day Fridays as a Pro from everyone. Imagine they didn't have this perk. I think their rating would fall in half. Not many people talk about actually working there as a Pro. If you are good at working long hours, can ignore the politics and get lucky to have a good manager, you will like it at Hasbro

    Advice to Management

    No advice. They know, they just choose to ignore.

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

    Pros

    Fun work environment, small teams so interns are given a good amount of work, fast-paced and your work feels important. There are a huge number of interns so it's a really nice community. Was very happy I moved here for this position. People are friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Not always included in meetings/ told what is going on.

    I worked at Hasbro (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company benefits, Starting Salary, and competitive 401 K.
    Excellent time off (Fridays you'll leave at 1) and very family oriented.
    Fun environment and they definitely celebrate their IP's success. (movie showings, release parties etc.)

    Cons

    Upper management is old and narrow-minded.
    Stymied creativity depending on department. Some departments re-hash old ideas for cheap.
    Most if not all Art and Design is sent outside to vendors. A pro if you're a freelancer but not if you're internal and part of the design team.
    Not a lot of opportunities to move upward or get promoted.
    In the middle of a "not-so-stimulating" area of RI.

    Great quality of life and knows how to increase productivity. Love half day fridays and christmas break.

    Current system changes are slowing productivity but should only improve as the company adapts
