    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Hasbro full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Competitive salaries, great benefits, flexible hours, generally creative and amazing people, philanthropic/paid volunteer hours, fun employment engagement and networking groups.

    Cons

    Don’t expect to have your voice heard/impact the business in a big way if you’re not pretty high up in the extremely hierarchical organizational structure. It’s not much of a collaborative environment, and you should expect to work overtime often if you want to get noticed and keep your head above water. Promotions happen rapidly and without much merit if you’re a marketer and happen SLOW everywhere else in the org.

    Advice to Management

    Actually get to know your employees at all levels. Be quicker to market. Learn to take risks. Hasbro misses the boar so often on trends or comes late to the party. Practice what you preach when you preach innovation.

    I have been working at Hasbro full-time

    Pros

    Half day Fridays, flexible work schedule, remote work, a week off between Christmas and New Years, starting vacation time is 3 weeks, well-known brands, interesting industry, good 401k, good pay, if you have a good manager then you’re set, family values, charity and philanthropic initiatives

    Cons

    Terrible location, uncertainty abound since the restructuring, everyone is fighting to prove their worth post-October and it’s causing tensions between departments, no clear cut direction, it’s an old-school company that did not strategically think through its growth in the earlier 2000s and now its showing very delayed growing pains across departments, it’s having an identity crisis

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership needs to shake things up and bring in new senior talent and guidance from outside the industry - what was working isn’t working anymore. You need outside the box thinking. The HQ should be relocated to Boston to tap into a deeper, more diverse talent pool. Don’t let short term desperate thinking cloud a longer term recovery strategy.

    I have been working at Hasbro full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    The people you work with are so talented and some of most down to earth individuals. Coming to work is never a drag, great energy excitement for the projects you're working on. People really care about their jobs. Creative minds that get things done, but there's always room to have some fun along the way. Great vacation and culture.

    Cons

    No clear way to move up in the company, always starts at the top and doesn't trickle down to lower lever employees. Leadership can be vague and intimidating to interact with. They don't know what's going on at a base level.

    Advice to Management

    Find better ways to appreciate your lower level employees. Hasbro is a marketing driven company, but you can't forget about your design teams.

    "Used to be better"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Hasbro full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Good compensation, 1/2 day Fridays year round, 3 weeks vacation from day one, good 401k and other benefits.

      Cons

      Employees used to feel valued. Now, most would agree they are just a number and expendable. Company continually asking everyone to do more with less. Recent layoffs and poor leadership is causing many others to look for new employment.

      Advice to Management

      Realize the negative shift in company culture. Employees don't feel the company is a special place any longer.

      Pros

      Currently get to make decisions in my job and do what is needed.

      Cons

      Moving to a system of being watched, tracked, monitered, and micromanaged to death.

      Advice to Management

      Trust your people. You hired them for a reason, let them work. You are taking away their ability to think on the job and you will be left with the mindless robotic workforce you think you desire. Meanwhile those of us looking at the writing on the wall are escaping while we can.

      Pros

      Family oriented company. Great benefits and half-day Fridays all year long

      Cons

      • Management needs to do more than just read/attend meetings, especially if the team is drowning. • Leadership seems to be clueless on overall direction and vision

      Advice to Management

      • Clear and transparent communication. Do your homework.
