Business Analyst (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – 3 July 2012
Ubisoft is a great company to work for. As with any company, there are some cons, but the pros heavily outweigh the bad. The work-life balance could not be better, as the culture there is one that endorses a commitment to bettering your personal life. They offer free drinks on all floors, and have weight loss competitions and other company wide games with prizes that encourage camaraderie. They often give away free games and always have Christmas gifts for the employees, as well as throw many company parties throughout the year. Communication within the company could be better, as different groups are sometimes on different pages regarding big decisions. Overall, Ubisoft's positives make it a company anybody would be lucky to work at.
free drinks, plenty of company events, in office games, diverse benefits, great culture

Tool Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 23 March 2015
I enjoyed working here, though it was difficult to try and change advancement tracks once you arrived. Communication occured great when someone was nearby, but most of the learning is to be done on your own.
Filthy, loud, unbalanced working schedules and responsibilities
Data Manager (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 24 September 2014
The company has a great benefits package and treats its employees very well. The problem is everything else below this. The building is old and absolutely filthy, the workload is completely unbalanced from job title to job title, and management is often completely clueless. I really did not enjoy my time at this company, but not because of the company, but the people employed by them, and the conditions of the working environment.
