    Pros

    Location! Location! Location! Just kidding, The usual things mentioned by others, ability to work with brands you know and love. Toy and games discounts at boutique.

    Cons

    Small mentality at the middle management level, silos, many managers very few leaders. Brian is an excellent leader and visionary if he only had the right team to support him in the execution of his strategy........l

    Impossible to advance, much reliance is placed on seniority and Year’s of service. The organization is top heavy and appears aged. New people come in but very quickly their value is diminished due to the need for conformity.

    Curiosity is encouraged in paper while the culture is one of secrecy where information is power. Feels like an oxymoron or hypocritical.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the organization in a holistic basis. Develop an organizational structure that will grow with the business. Time to look at the VPs that report to VPs and have no direct reports and motivate them to move on, allow room for growth within the organization.. Many lower ranked individuals have several direct reports and are not given more private work environment than a cubicle because they are not blue bloods and title less. Time to enter the 21st century.

    I have been working at Hasbro full-time

    Pros

    Half-day Fridays, flexible hours, community service opportunities. People will always want toys. This is a company that will be around for a long time. You know you are part of a company whose products and properties bring joy to people around the world.

    Cons

    Little room for career growth or development, no career paths. Expect to be stuck in the same area for a long time. Avoid departments where the manager has been there for 10, 20, etc. years- they are often led by people who have no real management experience or training and don't know how to coach or properly treat people. A lot of hiring and promoting is based on friendships or people being related to other people and not on your skills or experience. Workloads are often uneven in departments- some people surf the web all day and nothing happens while others are doing 60 hr weeks to keep their head above water. HR is useless if you have an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Middle management needs to be revamped badly. While upper management promotes workplace benefits and corporate activities, middle management will often tell their people they're too busy or too important to try for other positions or even go to a special function.

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

    Pros

    some fantastic people, great brands, fun job

    Cons

    over worked, under funded, no room for advancement in a company that refuses to change despite the constant hollow "challenge ourselves" mantra, faith in the wrong people, non-existent HR help, poor inexperienced stale leadership.

    Advice to Management

    pay attention to the overall needs of your employees. instead of parading around "one of the greatest places to work" (which is a morale killer as it obviously is not despite the phony presence of the claim)... try and act like it. look at management and remove the stale inexperienced poor leadership. all in all, take care of your employees which does not happen improve yourself.
