    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

    We make toys. Disney is a great inventive partner.

    Cons

    Total lack of opportunities for advancement, growth or training. Diversity is a joke at Hasbro. It is very much a white man's/old boys club, especially in departments like IT and finance. Human resources is completely useless and clueless. It is a completely different company depending upon what building you work in and what department you work for.

    Pros

    Flexi-time Friday PM off
    Great brands and people

    Cons

    Quarterly push to please investors drives short-term thinking and pretty awful decisions. Stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Stop plugging holes short-term. Set the business up for the future. Practice what you preach in your leadership manuals.
