    I worked at Ubisoft full-time for more than a year

    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...

    I have been working at Ubisoft full-time

    Pros

    Most people love their career and having a great passion in the gaming industry which creates a positive work place environment. There are many learning opportunities and resources helps to balance work and life (yoga, boot camp, free on site studio gym, regular basis employee survey for better operation, awesome HR etc) They also encourage to explore other career options within the company by developing new/existing skills. I really like the part that CEO shows his passion towards the game industry market and communicates with studios to deliver the company goal.

    Cons

    Low salary Super fast paced work environment Less flexible health benefit, fixed to certain options only Lack of company saving benefits (low RRSP contribution, no DC pension plan)
