    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Ubisoft full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Stable and experienced teams that constantly ship titles. Relaxed and low key atmosphere until it comes time to ship but certainly not a "100 hour a week" company.

    Cons

    Egos can get a little out of control on some of the bigger titles, but for the most part, the people in general are good to work with and down to earth.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the people to do the jobs you hired them for.

    I have been working at Ubisoft full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Free games, awesome offices and super cool ambiance. Work / family balance Progressive company values Mobility (local-international) opportunities Offer training and education support

    Cons

    Salary not that high, but still good. Hard to escalate the professional ladder. Not always the best at recognizing effort. Internal politics. Crony promotions Big company, can feel anonymous for some. Many leads, product managers, and senior designers to make ambitious plans.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting always the same people. Stop the crony promotion.
