    I have been working at Lego Group (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great product, company truly cares about employees and customers, no need to develop an alternative corporate persona - you can bring yourself to work

    Cons

    Some office locations less attractive to work from (US: rural Connecticut, UK: Slough), but also great locations like Singapore and central London

    Advice to Management

    Keep the balanced focus on financial, people, customer and society targets

    I have been working at Lego Group as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Family feel business
    Flexible
    Very clear brand values and structure
    Very understanding.
    Perfect company to work for
    A lot of scoop to move up and across within the company to find different roles and compliment different skill sets

    Cons

    Low pay, however the feel of the company made up for this.
    The office I worked in was based in Slough, however they have now moved to Central London.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, lovely colleagues, cool products, crazy Minifigures etc.

    Cons

    I'm working for LEGO customer services in Slough. The biggest challenge is dealing with customers that were unlucky with an online purchase for LEGO sets. Especially when a LEGO set is sold out or wasn't delivered on time for their child's upcoming birthday due to miscommunication.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! :)

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

    Pros

    LEGO is very well respected brand and lots of people have a special connection with it, so the vast majority of people getting in touch with us are very friendly and just want to chat about their passion and are curious for what the future will bring.

    Cons

    You need to be able to respect people's fascination with all things LEGO. If you keep on thinking 'grow up, it's just a toy!', then this place is gonna get on your nerves after a while!

    As with any job in the UK, the salary is rather low.

    Advice to Management

    Expand the business to Eastern Europe
