Pros: good people who take pride in their work, job security is nice, benefits are good, HR really is trying to consistently better the work atmosphere, exciting products and marketing campaigns
Cons: way too reliant on abundance of meetings, management is slow and too top heavy, disorganized structure, extremely political
Ubisoft has been an interesting place to work. I've been here 3 years on the Marketing team.
The people are really awesome and take a lot of pride in their work. It's also structurally very disorganized, – more... extremely political, and so much time is wasted internally debating because not only is it chaotic in SF, you have an entire organization in Europe you have to align every decision with.
You'll learn a lot about the games industry and I've seen people thrive here just as well as those without any gaming experience.
Good place to grow and move on. The leadership is very poor on people and soft skills but to their credit they are trying to get better at this. – less
