    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Ubisoft part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I was in an excellent team where quality standard and resource utilisation are well managed. Knowledge-sharing was amazing. I learnt more working 1 year than studying 5 year in university. Newly graduated students are welcomed more than I expected.

    Cons

    Different teams have different management policy, quality standard and knowledge-sharing initiative. It's always recommended to adapt to the situation and make the most out of it.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Ubisoft full-time

    Pros

    Food, drinks, social culture and laid back environment (to a fault). Fun place to work and hangout, lots of groups and activities for everyone.

    Cons

    Terrible work culture. It is like working with children. No one takes their job seriously and it feels like it's working at a startup with virtually no procedures. It's essentially sink or swim and a free for all + popularity contest.

    Advice to Management

    Get everyone on the same page. Stop making excuses for low performing individuals. Trying to create a open or fun culture doesn't fix your performance issues.
