Pros

The games they make there are fabulous. They try to balance sequels with the expansion of their own IP and are always open to suggestions and thoughts from their employees. The managers I had there ALWAYS made me feel valued, appreciated and gave me helpful feedback to improve myself at the same time.

Cons

The US offices and European offices are not equal in terms of salary or time off. It's hard to know you get 2 weeks vacation in the US and your European counterpart gets 8 for the same job.

Advice to Management

Please don't be quite so obvious about how much more money and vacation time the French office gets - it makes your employees in your other offices feel less valued.

    Pros

    Great corporate culture that emphasizes a quality work life and balance with one's personal life. It's a fun casual atmosphere and individuals are given a lot of opportunity to grow. Ubisoft really tries to find new challenges for employees and to promote from within where possible.

    Cons

    The autonomy of the business units sometimes make global efforts a challenge since there are many smaller fiefdoms. The company has grown quickly in the past few years and the maturity of our business processes hasn't caught up with our size.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management could be more data driven and have a stronger focus on metrics and business intelligence. They could also empower more leaders to drive global change and break down some of the internal politics.
