    I have been working at Hasbro full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Half day Fridays, toy boutique with deeply discounted toys and games.

    Cons

    Large multinational run like a mom and pop shop. CFO gets involved in menial tasks such as approving business class travel when trip is under 10 hours. Personal friendships are more important than getting results and performance. The “friends” exploit their personal connection with CFO to advance their careers and the careers of the favorite employees regardless of poor performance.

    Advice to Management

    Review employees fairly. Identify people with over 15 years of service that have no defined roles and possibly incent them into voluntary retirement with a special voluntary retirement package.

    Pros

    Competitive pay, benefits, and vacation time. Great people and company to work for.

    I have been working at Hasbro full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people/perks are awesome and the main reason so many people stay with the company for as long as they do. Amount of vacation time & half day Friday's are great if you aren't to insanely busy trying with crazy workload and can enjoy. There are free toy piles around the office & 1/2 price Hasbro store in Pawtucket.

    Cons

    Some people can be super frustrating but they have been with the company for too long to be sacked (sometimes they know this). There are some questionable members in management that should not be leading other people. Very political & hierarchy driven that it makes communication down the ladder unbearably slow to non-existent
    Marketing has a lot of control over design with little-to-no insights other than the test sessions with local Pawtucket kids that had an adverse opinion (even though all other research shows otherwise). Work can constantly churn if Marketing doesn't personally agree with something or are stuck on outdated stereotypes.
    Most of the fun design work is out sourced & projects are managed internally to hit deadlines for sales and marketing meetings more than actual production.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people you hire & what others are writing here
    Stop rewarding extroverted suck-ups who usually have awful ideas and ride the coattails of the introverted creators

    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.

    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.
