    I worked at Lego Group part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, exceptional management, enthusiastic training and development, new LEGO sets rolling in all the time, happy kids and happy parents, creative opportunities, building display LEGO sets, massive discount on personal purchases.

    Cons

    LOUD, terrible technical support, the common woes of retail sales (occasional irate customers, shoplifting, poor wages), limited available hours, unpleasant lighting inducing headaches (typical mall problems), traffic.

    Advice to Management

    Paying careful attention to the uniquenesses of your staff, offering competitive incentives as well as team-win bonuses, pushing toward tangible goals (in sales as well as ratings, cleanliness, and mystery shopper scores), and a conversational approach to personnel development and training made my managers AWESOME.

    I have been working at Lego Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are great. They hire on personality and team fit which goes a long way with how the company works.

    Cons

    Sometimes tends to move towards silos in some teams. A lot of things could be solved quicker by talking with other teams or employees instead of trying to reinvent the wheel.

    - Good benefits in general
    - Great Values
    - Great brand

    Cons

    - Upper management takes decisions with no consultation from the employees and if it doesnt work they sell it like "the company is open to see whats the best for it", but that philosophy doesnt apply to employees.
    - No training
    - Some manager are not empowered by upper management
    - Decision making is slow, burocratic and they cant find the formula to improve it.
    - Lack of communication within the company and it always feels there is a hidden agenda.
    - Collaboration is more praised than results even if there is no accomplishment
    - Recognition is low and with no real impact
    - Benefits are low compared to competitors
    - Very stressful environment
    - The organization has too many people involved in the decision making and in the daily tasks, so changes are extremly slow.
    - Extrovert personalities will have a very marked advantage

    Advice to Management

    Invest in people, empower leaders to take decisions.
    Involve people doing the job in the decision making.
