    - Great culture. Creative and fun industry to work in - Lots of opportunities to develop your skills and room for career advancement. - Flexible work hours - Lots of fun events, activities, and parties

    Cons

    - No work from home option - Not the studios fault but it's expensive to live in the city but there isn't much of an option if you don't want to commute back and forth every day.

    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - User Experience Researcher 

    I have been working at Ubisoft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of people and lots of projects, so lots to learn from Access to lab rooms, tech and tools, biometry

    Cons

    Not embeded in the prods so the lab has its own politics and it's considered as a separate service which can make collaboration with the floor difficult to set up (whereas the marketing or com devs are hired and managed by the core team)

  7. "Find yourself a Champion"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Coordinator in Toronto, ON

    I worked at Ubisoft full-time

    Pros

    The people who work there all come hoping to make the best games possible.

    Cons

    Pay people pittance because they know they can replace you due to brand recognition. The company, HR specifically, will turn against you. There were instances of harassment that were hushed up, and never felt with. Incompetent people are promoted constantly. Teams use different engines to work on the same games.

    I have been working at Ubisoft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Good work life balance - managers may help you achieve your career goals (I don't know all the managers but the ones I know are nice) - most people are kind - gym - some RRSP contribution - discounted company stock (a bit complicated though) - a lot of activities (eg. Summer BBQ) - free / discounted games for employee

    Cons

    - location. Where it locates is a bit too far from the metro (about 1km away, which is a lot in winter), and parking is expensive and hard to find. - if you are a quiet and shy person like myself, it may be a little hard to “fit in” the company culture.
