    Pros

    Temps flexible. Salaire dans la moyenne. Salle de gym payante. Locaux sympas. Salle cafétéria cool. Prime sur objectifs. Corbeille de fruits

    Cons

    Les managers n'ont que le titre. Ils ne savent gérer une équipe. Ils sont managers que par l'ancienneté et non pour les compétences.

    Advice to Management

    Revoir les formations des managers. Arrêtez de mettre ceux qui ne vont pas dans l'esprit de l'entreprise

    Pros

    Entreprise qui sait faire grandir ses salariés dans un cadre à la fois bienveillant et challengeant.

    Cons

    L'industrie de l'Entertainment, dont Ubisoft, n'est pas compétitive en terme de rémunération. Mais offre malgré tout un cadre de travail très satisfaisant !

    Advice to Management

    Favoriser plus d'échanges entre les différents studios.

    Pros

    Les gens sont passionnés et ouverts, très investis. Les challenges à relever sont intéressants et on sent que l'entreprise va dans le bon sens. Il y a des initiatives pour prendre en compte l'avis des employés.

    Cons

    Les salaires ne sont vraiment pas à la hauteur des postes. C'est très dommage et dommageable pour garder les talents.

    Advice to Management

    Ajuster la politique salariale
