Hasbro - a creative, collaborative workplace
MANAGER (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – May 3, 2018
Working for a toy company can be very rewarding. Hasbro has a great corporate culture of community engagement, volunteerism and investment in its employees.
The work environment is one of collaboration and creativity. There is a great deal of scope for cross-functional partnership and collaborating on initiatives outside of the role definition.
It's a very inspiring place in regard to working with dedicated and driven people from many professional backgrounds and across the globe.
Contributing to the development of new ideas and products as well as to the continued success of iconic brands like Play-Doh and Transformers provides a lot of motivation.
As with all large organizations, change can be disruptive and seem random. Management varies in terms of enlightened practices, engagement with employees and suitability for the role.
Benefits are good; movie previews; summer hours year-round; product line is fun.
Management uneven at best; large disparity in the influence of certain groups (marketing, product design) leaves other groups feeling invisible.
