    Pros

    Good product range with a reasonable back catalogue of products.
    Good market share and continued product development.
    International market and good brand alignment.

    Cons

    Disappointing local management. Antiquated systems designed more about the production than sales. The business has become totally marketing driven with little ability to drive innovation in their relationships with their customers. The products are permanently on sale!

    Pros

    Lots of Great people to work with
    Benefits
    Vacation Policy Robust
    Work/Life balance is great but it depends on your manager
    Good corporate/social responsibility programs- they encourage all employees to be generous with their time

    Cons

    Your age is your enemy
    Long term dedicated and loyal employees are pushed aside
    Political
    Lots of fake people in management that say one thing and do another
    Favoritism and fast tracking to keep people happy

    Advice to Management

    Hasbro is a wonderful business with amazing brands and I consider myself fortunate to have worked there but the entire Senior Management Team in Pawtucket and Providence needs to stop fast tracking people-promote those that deserve promotion, it is evident and obvious that management promotes to keep people happy and keep promises made.
    Sad to say this but your age is your enemy at Hasbro - the older you are the more vulnerable you are.

    Pros

    The creative, finance and project management teams are outstanding and relentless in their commitment and efforts to make innovative, gorgeous products on schedule and on budget.

    Cons

    Some R.I. Management staff members don't acquiesce to office etiquette and ethics. I don't understand how someone can get away with referring to female colleagues in an inappropriate sexual manner, bragging about getting 'polluted', aka inebriated and boasting because they behave like a bulldog.

    Advice to Management

    Have continued ethics training for the longterm employees who thing they are above office etiquette and ethics.

    There are plenty of websites with workplace professionalism training courses.
