Featured Review
"Family First"Oct 23, 2021

Current Employee - Technical Director

I have been working at Ubisoft full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Despite current headlines, Ubisoft Montreal is excellent for professionals with families who want to have a good work/life balance without judgment.

Cons

Salaries are not as high as local competitors

"Good Team"Jan 19, 2021

Current Employee - Developer

I have been working at Rockstar Games full-time

Pros

-Fun and collaborative work environment. -Decent pay and benefits. -Team leads are supportive. -So far, the company has done a good job of handling the work from home situation during covid.

Cons

-Working with a team across time zones can be tricky at times, but this is a difficulty of having such a large team more than a fault of the company. -Could benefit from having a standardized... pipeline.

Advice to Management

The team is strong, but building and enforcing standardization across workflows would help reduce backlog and confusion. Other than that, no real complaints.
