    Ok company, Bad team

    Pros

    -Ubisoft as a company has good culture, but your mileage may vary based on your department -HR has many good initiatives to create a good workplace

    Cons

    -Toxic atmosphere. Employees are afraid to speak their mind. I have been reminded on multiple occasions by management that I am paid more than Ubisoft Pune employees and so I need to prove my worth. This cultivates a culture of fear. -Extremely high turnover. Massive batches of new people come and go every few months; you are just a number. -During your onboarding, expect to be introduced by HR to a wide range of good initiatives like Creating a Safe and Respectable Workplace and platforms like Whispli. As well-intentioned as this is, these initiatives are treated like a joke in the department, with even management cracking jokes like “Later I Whispli you”. -Orwellian levels of gaslighting from managers. Their own shortcomings will never be acknowledged.

    Nice working environment but not somewhere i recommend to seniors or higher due to below market salaries and slow growth

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Casual working environment Flexible hours Autonomous daily experience.

    Cons

    Very slow career growth. (2 years at junior, 4 at intermediate, 5-6 at senior Bloated dev teams that arent open to hearing ideas for a game's direction. Most major decisions are dictated by the HQ studio. You end up feeling like a cog in a machine and eventually lose interest in the product. Creativity takes a backseat to ways to get more and more money out of the player after the sale of the product. In the past youd have a creative director but now you have a committee of finiancial and engagement members that have tunnel vision on specific metrics and it makes the product much worse as a whole. modern ubisoft games introduce a lot of addictive gambling elements aimed at kids.my morals dont align with that Very Low salaries. Glass ceiling in the company if youre not a french speaker or national. A lot of french conversations on the floor even though it's supposed to be an English speaking company. Groups seem to form based on this and it factors in during performance reviews if youre very close to the french group Project bonsues are tiny. On a game released in Ubisoft' most profitable year ever, selling over 10 million units. The bonus was less than a month's (already slow) salary for a 4 year project
