Does the LEGO Group offer parental leave?

Pros

An overall supportive and friendly group of colleagues if you happen to be in the right design org. There are a lot of company benefits, bonuses and special things you receive. Access to incredible projects and workflows. Opportunities to make an impact and be listened to by the higher ups when needed.

Cons

Depending on your political views, you might not be a good fit. Diversity of thought and diverse political views are not a priority. Political culture is mostly a monolith that leans to the left with very few exceptions. Career development for some roles is inexistent while other roles thrive with complex support structures and comfortable supportive team activities. Equal opportunity can be a good thing but if most of the time your manager is a young woman you need to keep in mind she might go on maternity leave and your career plan will be handed over to a new manager that might not appreciate you the same way. So it might be very difficult to actually have a true career path if your have a different manager every year. Depending on your manager you might get stuck in the same project for years even if you are eager to try something different. Do not expect a salary way above average, people are just happy to come work for LEGO so recruiters and interviewers are not used to people that negotiate for a basic Designer position. Might be different for a higher role like Creative Lead or Design VP etc... If you are a very rational and logical person apply to jobs in the tech projects where a lot of engineers will keep you good company (Mindstorms, Spike, Technic etc). Do not apply to non-technical projects if you are a rational person, you might find yourself surrounded by very talented but also extremely emotional people that can't hold a rational conversation going.

Advice to Management

Listen to Designers more, stop giving so much power to marketers!

Does the LEGO Group offer a wellness program?

Pros

There are always wonderful projects to work on, and you can’t help but feel wholesome about them. And, LEGO is privately owned and the employees are truly treated incredibly well - very generous benefits, respect and consideration. It’s wonderful to work for a place that no one ever speaks ill of.

Cons

It’s stressful, and many employees take stress leave of weeks to months at a time, and some have done it several times. There’s always a time pressure, always a financial target, always a budgetary issue. Very cautious to invest in emerging technology. It drains you.

Advice to Management

Take notice and speak up when one of your team members is obviously struggling. They are often too afraid to speak up themselves.

very generous benefits, respect and consideration.
