    I have been working at Hasbro full-time

    Pros

    Fun projects, hard workers, used to have good work/life balance

    Cons

    No time to design for any good work. No one works together. It's more of a "Let's get everything done as quickly as possible" with no regard for if products look good.

    Advice to Management

    Marketing is taking over and that is the sign failing design in a company. In the end, the product has to look good to sell.

    Pros

    Fun and creative coworkers, supportive middle management, growth is encouraged, excellent work / life balance.

    Cons

    Relies heavily on temp contract workers for roles that are obviously permanent.

    Advice to Management

    Convert temp contract positions to full time roles if they exist for 4 or more years.

    I have been working at Hasbro full-time

    Pros

    Seems to be a good place for support teams like HR, IT, etc.
    Long Christmas Holiday
    Team building exercises but feel forced

    Cons

    Constantly changing goalposts
    No clear communication of wants from management/executive level, making it impossible to complete projects or get anything done
    Company abuses TEMP workers - DO NOT WORK HERE ON A CONTRACT! I cannot stress this enough - Even if you are told you will be offered full-time, the company will string you along for years without full-time offer/ benefits.
    Marketing team is extremely competitive and is very clichy.
    Full of a lot of sad young people who are thinking of changing careers completely because of negative experience.
    A lot of switching/turnover/firings/layoffs happening.

    Advice to Management

    For development teams - marketing, design, engineering, graphic design, and packaging design work on supporting your teams and talents! Stop taking advantage of the development employees and set clear goals. Stop changing goalposts.

    Lower the CEO's salary & executive suite to something reasonable. I find it hard to believe you laid off 10% of the workforce with the CEO is paid millions.

    I worked at Hasbro full-time

    Pros

    Great brand portfolio
    Benefits/Vacation policy
    Amazing people to work with day to day
    Flexibility although it depends on your manager - not consistent

    Cons

    Age has become a factor in moving ahead.
    Promoting to keep people happy rather than promoting based on qualifications.
    Management team changes to parts of the organization have become demotivating for many.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck - your "difficult decisions" are truly impacting lives and families.
    Although you are trying to make people think their age isn't there enemy it is quite evident it is.
    Look around a lot of the talent is gone.

    I have been working at Hasbro full-time

    Pros

    The philanthropic work the organization does, and supports it's employees in doing, is inspirational.

    Cons

    The external messaging around the recent layoffs puts those employees who lost their job in a difficult position.
