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
salary may not be as competitive, not great communication between teams
Ubisoft is a good place to work if you are a hardcore gamer with no family responsibilities or commitments. Lots of crunch time as projects were frequently late with more and more people thrown at them.
