Does Ubisoft offer dental insurance?

Pros

- Nice bonus if you're 1. Dev 2. in the correct project. There's also a company bonus. - People are really nice, young and want to do great stuff. You'll probably make friends here. - Flexible hours (core hours for meetings!), not very stressful. This would be the perfect place for someone who wants to settle down. - Remote work up to 60%, some really extraordinary cases get 100%. They pay for internet and electricity bills if you do any remote. - There are a bunch of benefits that are interesting (medical insurance + dental discount, sports discount, Ticket Restaurant, etc), but could be better. - Projects are interesting.

Cons

- Low salaries comparing to Barcelona standards, but comparing with the rest of Spain (Madrid, Sevilla, etc) are okay. - Salary reviews aren't generous and have nothing to do with your performance. Probably after a few years you will get stuck with a similar salary to the one you accepted in the initial offer. - Not many learning opportunities (no courses, workshops, master classes, languages, etcetera) - If you're an ambitious individual, forget about climbing the corporate ladder if you aren't French (or French Canadian, tops). If you're really lucky you could get to be lead, but it is very probable that you will get to be a senior after 3 years and that's it (exactly 3, as performance doesn't really count in promotions, only time) - For now, it's only co-dev. And co-dev studios are treated like second class employees, sadly. - Lots of meetings, bureaucracy, corporative talks... The downtimes just get obnoxious. - Lousy merchandise quality... some of us would rather have less amount but better crafted. - I'm not going to talk about the abuses, shitty corporative culture too much but they are NOT doing anything about it, definitely.

Advice to Management

If lots of people are leaving the studio, the correct solution isn't to ban the email listing for the whole studio so they can't send a goodbye letter... he he
