    I have been working at Hasbro full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Half day Fridays. Fun atmosphere. Cool events. Toys!

    Cons

    Very hard to change depts/career path. All positions that don't require 5+ years of experience are reserved for co-ops, interns, and temps. Highly competitive.

    I worked at Hasbro full-time

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Get to make things that create fun for others.

    Cons

    Some product lines appear driven by marketing, without really understanding the target demographic. Not much risk-taking beyond the core brands. Compensation is on the low side, offset only slightly by a product allowance.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more ways for employees to move upwards or laterally within the company.

    I worked at Hasbro full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    HASBRO is an amazing place to work. Half day Fridays are every single Friday, and sometimes you get to skip 2 hours of work to go see a movie that Hasbro has toy licenses with. This isn't really a pro or a con, but since Hasbro offers so many great benefits, it's harder to move up the ladder. No one wants to leave Hasbro so you find yourself stuck in the same position for many years until something elsewhere opens up for you! Don't let this discourage you though... Hasbro is worth it!

    Cons

    My only con would be with the department I worked in... Management was inept and lacked any sense of professionalism. They were an embarrassment to the company, and other departments looked down upon you because of your managers' unpreparedness and lack of respect.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the complaints of your employees when they say Managers are doing worse than better for the department.

    I worked at Hasbro full-time

    Pros

    Fringe benefits like getting paid to go see movies
    Flexible hours
    Philanthropic company

    Cons

    Corporate BS, pretty standard
    Very little creative freedom

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more open-minded. The little guys have to get their ideas past you so if you shut them down, they can't go up.
