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

    Pros

    Family friendly company, great people, can be a fun environment to work in.

    Cons

    Aside from Marketing, it can be difficult to move up and be promoted; people complain that salaries are typically below median average.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the true value of all people/ departments. Give them the power to create positive change - rather than keeping that power with a select few.

    Pros

    great environment to work in, i really enjoyed it until I was offered a different job.

    Cons

    hard to make it far up in the company, and you would have to spend a lot of time with them to even get anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    hire from within and give some bright people some ideas to make the future of board games

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

    Pros

    Amazing franchise brands that incorporate great storytelling and design. You are able to collaborate with other really talented individuals and your work is seen worldwide.

    Cons

    Amazing brands, BUT they use that to their advantage. They overload full time employees with too much work and surround them by temps on an "as-needed" basis. Incompetent people have been hired and when people have voiced concerns, management is quick to ignore complaints and ignore the problems.

    Advice to Management

    Stop overloading employees with too much work and actually listen when they give constructive feedback. Also, the temp model does not work if you have the same "temp" job filled for 2+ years. That obviously proves a need for a full time position and by not filling it, you are causing stress on all other employees in terms of building relationships and training.

    The environment at Hasbro is unmatched by far, Who wouldn't enjoy their job when working for an amazing toy company. The People are great and friendly and their are always new surprises and work events to take the edge off your day.

    I worked at Hasbro (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture, focus on fun, working on well-known properties like Transformers. There is a focus on service to the community as well. Worked with great people. Fantastic benefits. Loved the half day Fridays and snow days.

    Cons

    Pay is a little below market in the IT sector. This is a tough one as it's the Providence market, not the Boston market.

    Advice to Management

    Value talent enough to negotiate salaries to keep them. There are many confirmed accounts, confirmed by my own, that management simply doesn't negotiate salary up to keep talent. Hire people who are experienced in the open source community to a avoid spending big money on pay for play solutions.

    I worked at Hasbro full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and good work, life balance. Lots of free toys! Its fun to work in an industry that is for kids.

    Cons

    Lack of decision making, limited empowerment to change/challenge. There are a lot of layers at Hasbro and most if not all decisions are made at the top. There is also a lot of infighting for resources internally.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline decision making processes so people on the ground feel empowered to make decisions. Test and learn things, challenge the status quo give people the resources to take some new directions.

    Pros

    Great working environment, good people. They definitely know how to take care of their interns. I learned and grew a lot from my one year internship at this company.

    Cons

    The parking can sometimes be a pain. Other than that, no cons for me.
