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

    Pros

    - Ubisoft as a company has a good culture, but your mileage will vary based on the department you end up in - The neighborhood is cool, there's plenty of cool restaurants and shops around - Salaries are competitive for the Montréal Market - Internal mobility has a lot of positions open and applying to other positions is easy - You can spend you entire career there if you want, people rarely get fired and the jobs are stable

    Cons

    Regarding Engineering & Platform: - Lots of red tape - They expect the backend devs they hire to be SREs, so know Ops, possibly be on call - Toxic atmosphere, it feels like the employees are scared to speak their mind - Orwellian levels of gaslighting from the managers/directors, their own shortcomings and mistakes will never be acknowledged and their impact greatly diminished. They will put the blame on you or find another scapegoat. - Abnormally high amount of turnover & burnouts compared to the rest of Ubisoft - Claims to care about mental health but will antagonize you at every opportunity - Teams work in Silos and are expected to depend on each other, magically - Constant scope changes, chasing a moving target - Directors are most probably sociopaths Regarding Ubisoft: - HR has no teeth to investigate toxic behavior - Directors are either untouchable or don't care about other misbehaving directors - Lots of internal politics

    Pros

    Great work-life balance Chance to work with some amazing people

    Cons

    Their games are not doing anything particularly new or innovating It (still) has horrible people in management and leadership positions. Very much a mafia type culture, where senior people all know each other so do each other favours, even if it’s frowned upon. Lots of unfair practices and a bunch horny guys who prey on the few women that are there.
