    No opinion of CEO

    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!

    I have been working at Hasbro full-time

    Pros

    The people at Hasbro are brilliant, creative, and dedicated. The company is highly ethical and does a huge amount of community focused work. It's a fun and general relaxed place to work.

    Cons

    Some managers are highly motivated by internal politics and personal ambition, rather than the well-being of employees or the success of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you understand what your workers do before making decisions that affect their jobs. Involve your employees in decision making. Take into consideration the effect your decisions have on them, and discuss your plans openly so that you can make fully informed decisions!

    Pros

    25 days holiday + 1 day Birthday, bonus scheme, flexible working hours, working from home option, pays above market median

    A bit hierarchical in the sense the higher you are the more special treatment you get. Can be a bit slow to implement changes but they are always looking to keep up to date with trends

    I worked at Hasbro full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hasbro is a family. Loyalty is important. But unlike most big entertainment companies, the loyalty is also a commitment by the company to its employees. The company cares about people. There is incredible emphasis on charity, product quality, supporting employee families and being a good corporate citizen.

    Cons

    Hasbro is known by Wall Street to be a safe stock. That creates a challenge sometimes for taking big risks. Hasbro manages to be innovative nonetheless, but it is a substantial headwind at times.
