    I have been working at Ubisoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Amazing colleagues, the people is the best asset the studio has
    - Great projects, it changed a lot since 2016, so far all been AAA titles
    - Flexible work time
    - Sports groups in the afternoons
    - Team size doubled in 1 year
    - Great work/life Balance

    Cons

    - Studio is not in Barcelona, it's in the boundaries. Still not a big "cons" since it's in the same train station, but still if you don't like commuting it can be a negative, takes around 30-35 mins to get there by train from Barcelona
    - Salary it's just "ok"
    - Since so many people joined, it's quite crowded in terms of space at the moment
    - HR should be more proactive

    Advice to Management

    Keep the good projects coming and do your best to keep people happy
