I have been working at Ubisoft full-time
Most people love their career and having a great passion in the gaming industry which creates a positive work place environment. There are many learning opportunities and resources helps to balance work and life (yoga, boot camp, free on site studio gym, regular basis employee survey for better operation, awesome HR etc) They also encourage to explore other career options within the company by developing new/existing skills. I really like the part that CEO shows his passion towards the game industry market and communicates with studios to deliver the company goal.
Super fast paced work environment
Less flexible health benefit, fixed to certain options only
Lack of company saving benefits (low RRSP contribution, no DC pension plan)
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ubisoft (Montreal, QC).
Après quelques échanges téléphoniques et pas courriel, l'entrevue, à laquelle participaient 3 personnes: recruteur, chef d'équipe et futur collègue. Entrevue classique sur les motivations et le poste à pourvoir. Pas de questions techniques dignes de ce nom.
