I have been working at Ubisoft full-time (More than 8 years)
Brilliant talent resides throughout Ubisoft in all sectors.
Creativity is king.
Fast paced environment is great for an energetic person, never a boring moment.
Long term Loyalty to those who perform well.
The French influence, from a business perspective, rules. This isn't necessarily a con because they're smart but it's also not negotiable and you will only go so far unless you are fluent in French.
Jobs can become much larger than your initial expectations, and you don't necessarily get the recognition you'd expect at maybe another employer, as soon as you might expect.
Unless you're willing to relocate, your advancement potential is limited.
Advice to Management
Quit being so detached it can appear arrogant, even if this is not what's intended.
The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Ubisoft.
Is was a very pleasant interview, and was asked appropriate questions. Michaela who was the interviewer was great to chat with. They messaged me back rejecting me due to fact that they needed someone with more gaming experience and I appreciated that they gave me the reason why I got rejected. Thank you Michaela for the great interview, and hope you find the right person.
