1.Good working environment 2. High end and the latest hardware 3. Access to all the Ubisoft games and exciting other new games 4. Access to game libraries 5. Cool ubisoft goodies and contests
1. less salary 2. The growth is very very slow(salary wise and promotions due to tough competition) 3. Stress and toxicity do occur within the team but that's subjective. (Mainly due to uneven appraisals even though it's very less to compare) 4. The root problem is the salary and it will grow on you eventually. People who have experience in a different area, I would advise sticking with IT or any other industry. But you have an absolute passion for gaming and doesn't care the about the money then they might survive. For first timers, this can give a good experience. I will give 2 years in this company after that it seems pointless. this is just my opinion so don't judge the company on the basis of this comment.

Casual working environment Flexible hours Autonomous daily experience.
Very slow career growth. (2 years at junior, 4 at intermediate, 5-6 at senior Bloated dev teams that arent open to hearing ideas for a game's direction. Most major decisions are dictated by the HQ studio. You end up feeling like a cog in a machine and eventually lose interest in the product. Creativity takes a backseat to ways to get more and more money out of the player after the sale of the product. In the past youd have a creative director but now you have a committee of finiancial and engagement members that have tunnel vision on specific metrics and it makes the product much worse as a whole. modern ubisoft games introduce a lot of addictive gambling elements aimed at kids.my morals dont align with that Very Low salaries. Glass ceiling in the company if youre not a french speaker or national. A lot of french conversations on the floor even though it's supposed to be an English speaking company. Groups seem to form based on this and it factors in during performance reviews if youre very close to the french group Project bonsues are tiny. On a game released in Ubisoft' most profitable year ever, selling over 10 million units. The bonus was less than a month's (already slow) salary for a 4 year project14

HR and Admin team are good they are more supportive if you are honest with them.
Less salary and growth opportunity is also less because of old employees who have been in company for more that 5-10 years they don't want to grow as they are safe at there current position have good salary and get atleast 10% increment per-year with hardly doing any work ,they dont even know the difference between NAT types and send ALL GOOD for network testing, most of them don't know how to test games on X-box ,Play-station, switch, and different application on PC. If you have more knowledge than this guys they will backstab you regarding you performance and attendance even though there are some guys worst than you, they will pressure you until you start to follow them and become there dog, you have to give them party as they ask for to you remain in there favors. You have to keep this guys happy (it doesn't matter if you don't work )or you would be kick out.(Example: Chaitanya Girme)1

fun company to work for, lots of organized activities.
overall I found that the growth is a bit slow and the salaries are on the lower end.

Great environment and Colleagues, Studio life is the best in the industry
Salaries are not competitive and is difficult to find long term growth within the Marketing teams

- Active environment - International standards - Keeps up with modern trends
- Unsure how salary is calculated internally (does not seem to take into considerations tasks and responsibilities) - Not very professional - Too laid back

Please search for some other good opportunity than Ubisoft
VERY VERY VERY LESS Salary. The Salary of Security Guard of the organisation is more than a Junior Game Tester Salary

Stable Talented people High budget AAA Many projects to choose from
Seriously career and mental state shattering toxic core teams still workibg without any consequences to their action Superstar dev culture Homogenous Unoptimized Inability to do new things without teams having to suffer enormously Low salary and benefit compared to other companies (unless you are part of the rockstar dev or friends with the right people)3

Some nice perks: free games, good studio, nice people, vacation weeks are good when the emplyment conditions were revamped, some nice company event although they don't seem to be happenening that much after the pandemic.
Low salary compared to others and many people lack knowledge in the field of their job description. Hard to climb up the ladder if you are not buddy buddy with the higher ups and there is strong favouritism within the company. Climbing to level 3 was pretty impossible without the right manager despite reaching job title goals. Was told I was 'too young' to get a promotion despite other younger team members being allowed to get promotions. HR refused to help when asked to review a situation. Tasks were not varied and too boring. I wanted to change position/expand task types but was ignored various times and eventually gave up and quit. There are times with no tasks and then, a huge abundance of tasks and managers do not do well to balance things leading to burnouts of team members. You can be blamed for not finding a job within the company even when there are no positions available.1
