I have been working at Ubisoft full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Great co-workers. Global structure. Great IP's. Broad portfolio. Innovation friendly. Creative. Familiar. Good balance for work / life commitments. Lots of variation (culture, projects, attitudes) between offices across the world.

Cons

Frustrating high-level creative process with centralized management from HQ. Uneven quality of organization and structure across different departments. Inefficient external communication structure.

Advice to Management

Give more trust and freedom to proven studios and teams. Revamp external communication structure. Keep the familiar, positive and friendly ambitions.

    -Some teething problems setting up new studio
