      Pros

      - Job security - Lots of good talent scattered around their productions - Lots of opportunities to move around and try different things

      Cons

      - Low salary - Not enough vacation days - Huge productions, making any decision takes weeks - Lots of unmotivated employees that are there just for the small pay knowing they will never get fired. - Their projects are not very varied 50% of their projects are all of the following: Open worlds with, RPG elements, in realistic worlds - Editorial team that makes the big decision lack vision - No innovation at all, Ubisoft is always 3-4 years behind the rest of the industry - They give too much importance to foosball tables, yoga classes, spending money on events, concerts and not enough to employees salary/vacation out of work quality of life.

      Pros

      - Get to work on AAA games - Flexible hours - Healthcare & ergonomy service - RRSP group system -gym -Epic christmas and summer parties. -good integration of new employees -there are lot of seniors,so its a perfect opportunity to learn for juniors -beautiful and convenient workspace -good bonuses

      Cons

      - follow trends and recycle proven formulas instead of trying to innovate.they lack vision and the games seems to stagnate into irrelevancy. -Ubisoft has difficulty to make team collaborate between themselves, because theres too much inner competition. - Lots of politics and Toxic leadership. - boys club still exist at top hierarchy of production. - Lack of honest communication. - Backstabbing culture. - Most skilled and talented workers are moving to other companies. -if you arent part of the ''gang'', you may get left behind for a promotion or bonuses. - not a lot of ownership as the teams are so big.you may lost the hand if you stay there many years...so,it's not the greatest place to learn and grow at long term. - not a lot of opportunity to evolve and get another position.if theres some, you have to figh of else HR will make sure that you stay there. -management is not really good at helping career growth. -low salaries that really dont increase that much... - they dont paid for overtime.at least they pay your supper... - Depending on project ,lack of management. -Some people just do only the minimum for their job or don't do their 8h per day.theres even people that don't do their job.. -Located in the middle of the city and the realm of pedestrians.finding a parking is like chasing an unicorn. good. luck. -basically, you're a number...
