    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Eidos Montreal full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They finally have free coffee?

    Cons

    You are on your own if you don’t buddy up to the leads fast. The politics on play ensure you can’t effectively do your job, and the people on top never know what they want so you’re going to be constantly doing and redoing work until they figure it out and it will always be your fault that you didn’t get it. Performance reviews are non existent unless they need to cut heads, then you’ll mysteriously be informed... you failed it (you will not ever see this review.). Watch yourself when you get close to your two years there, they know they can fire you without triggering legal repercussions because dismissal laws don’t kick in for Quebec until 2 years. If even one producer doesn’t like you, they will drum up some reason to fire you without any input from your managers. And they’re not even pulling out any kind of successes to justify this. This is a company where franchises go to die. They’ve killed Thief, they’ve killed Deus Ex, they’re about to kill Tomb Raider. Sooner or later Japan is going to get tired of having their obey wasted and that is not going to be pretty. They’ve already cut out most of the employees perks for all the fuckups. The rep around town is already so bad they keep having to find people outside of the province and even the country because everyone here is getting wise to the toxic environment thanks to all the people they’ve chewed through.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Eidos Montreal full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Salaire compétitif, bons avantages sociaux, situé en plein centre ville de Montréal. Fruits et cafés en accès libre

    Cons

    Peu d’activité d'entreprise d'organisé pour consolider les équipes. Des choix technologiques douteux et pas forcément optimales. Des projets au développement parfois très long (Thief =7 ans développement, Deus Ex 1 & 2 = 5 ans de développement chacun) pour un succès par forcément au rendez vous.

    Advice to Management

    Arrêter de développer un tech Interne dépassée et adopté une tech externe permettant de développer des jeux plus rapidement et de meilleur qualité.
