Pros
Cons
  • Hasbro loves to hire temporary staff so they don't pay out stocks or benefits, so it is really rare to get hired full-time (in 14 reviews)

  • Some departments are understaffed, so work/life balance is different depending on the department you work in (in 7 reviews)

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

    Pros

    If you are a sadistic megalomaniac, you will go far at this company, with the full support of management, human resources and legal.

    Cons

    You will be managed by people who are comically unqualified to manage personnel, especially if you are in a design role. Despite what its public face may lead you to believe, this is the most unprogressive, over-working, under-paying and demoralizing company I have ever worked for, in my 15 years working in corporate environments. If you are a recent college graduate and think that working here will be like working at Google or Amazon, you will be tragically disappointed.

    Advice to Management

    Sell your company to someone who didn't receive their management training from depression-era textbooks. You are totally blind to how your low-level managers treat their direct reports - it's shameful and embarrassing.

    I worked at Hasbro (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Half day Fridays, nice facilities and amendities including a small gym.
    Job stability. Bonuses are good.

    Cons

    Let me be very clear that I was a high performer and well respected so my feedback is not jaded.
    Most of the staff has been there for a long time (20 yrs+) and it is not great for new people (young or old) as there are groups already formed. People are very reluctant to change. This will be the demise of Hasbro as they are not moving forward with innovation. They are focused on re-branding legacy products and not new technology.
    The people that are high performers end up working more hours to make up for the dead weight.
    The pay is not comparable to the Boston market.
    The benefits used to be good but took a significant nose dive in 2015 as they changed health insurance companies. More out of pocket cost for medical care without a match in salary left many with subsquently a pay cut.
    If you want to go and sit in a cube for 10 yrs and not move forward in your career then this is the place for you. If you are a fire starter and innovator don't bother as you will become frustrated and leave.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of promoting employees with only longevity with the job you should focus on people have new fresh ideas that will help move the business forward.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance for the majority of the time. 1/2 day Fridays are fantastic, and love the products we work with.

    Cons

    Occassional high pressure/high workload times, when there aren't enough people. The main office needs some updating, but I hear that is coming.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should focus more on leading and setting direction, and let their team have the scope to do their jobs and make decisions.

    "Internship position - not offered a real working experience"

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Hasbro (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good working hours, friendly colleagues.

    Cons

    Very little responsibility or challenge offered to interns. Was not invited to team meetings, worked alone most of the time and was sat away from team. Didn't learn a lot about the business as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your interns with a real project and integrate them onto the team.
