Quintessential work hard; play hard environment

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Typical game dev environment with flexible work hours, but you are expected to put in around 10-11 hours of work a day.Great place to launch your career, but promotions and compensation adjustments do not reflect rising cost of living in Toronto.For a "fun" work environment, the company is very much bogged down by bureaucracy.Workplace culture is extremely cliquish and juvenile, common in many "young" companies. Benefits are not as appealing as other tech companies in the city. The hardest part of the job is separating work-life and personal life, as most of your colleagues will not hesitate to respond to an email after hours or during weekends. Not doing so will reflect badly on your performance. Also, difficult to move up the ladder if you do not speak French.The most enjoyable part of the job is working on a globally recognized brand and interesting product.

Pros

Interesting projects, cutting edge technology, collaborative atmosphere

Cons

Long hours, slightly discriminatory towards anglophones, corporate red tape, juvenile work culture, lack of benefits, non-responsive HR, unfriendly IT department

Unique, challenging and fun workplace unlike anything else

I worked at the Ubisoft Montreal studio for 4 months as part of an internship with the CRM team. As a software engineer with a creative streak and a need for human interaction in the workplace, this office was the definition of perfect: comfortable desk area, natural lighting, and a genuinely great balance between work and leisure.Ubisoft Montreal being a video game studio means that, by default, your work involves play. This does not mean that play becomes work, strictly speaking; an average day at work didn't feel completely like work, and that's impressive.The best part of the position I had was the connection our team had with the other teams in different departments. Marketing and customer relations are a nexus of graphic design, brand integration, data analysis and customer feedback. If you enjoy this level of interconnectivity, you'll enjoy this position.The hardest part (other than saying goodbye) was the holiday rush. Work hours became packed and long at the same time, and the stress levels can get pretty high. That being said, this is predictable and should be expected if you're aiming for a marketing-adjacent position like this one.

Pros

Employee benefits, amazing workplace

Cons

Long hours during marketing rush seasons

Avoid this place at all cost

They overwork you and they do not care how burnt out you are. They expect you to work long hours and they don't allow you to bank any of your overtime hours. When you do take a personal day, they still call you for help. The managers don't help you move up. They gossip and talk about you and pretend to be your friend. It's an awful place to work. I would not recommend this place to my friends or family. IAvoid thi

Pros

Bagel Fridays

Overwork, long hours and extremely stressful.

Culture d'entreprise et bel environnement de travail

Les studios d'Ubisoft Montréal sont bien aménagés ce qui rend l'atmosphère de travail très agréable et cela se reflète dans l'attitude des gens. Il y a beaucoup de services aux employés proposés (Gym, Ergothérapeute, Fruits, Bagels, Café Faro sur place...).

Pros

Beaucoup de services aux employés / Trés bien situé dans le quartier du Mile End à Montréal

Cons

Consultante donc peu de perspective d'Ă©volution.

Interesting company culture, no clear ownership accross the company.

working at Ubisoft is interesting. The company structure is clearly broken and employees suffer from lack of vision from upper management, lack of clear ownership, lack of clarity on your future in the company. But this cleary varies based on the project you work on. Your salary is not competitive, you are expected to work constantly, pour your heart and soul into your work, but in the end, what is most important isn't your talent, it's how long you sit on your chair at work and how many years you burn giving to the company. Overall, it's not all bad, but the company puts in no effort to retain talent.

Environnement de travail ludique et défis intéressants

Les gens chez Ubisoft sont passionnés par le produit qu'ils créent et cherchent avant tout à l'améliorer. Les défis en science des données sont intéressants et les managers sont compétents dans ce domaine, n'ayant pas peur d'explorer des questions dans une perspective de recherche et développement. Seul point négatif, les projets sont parfois mal définis ce qui entraîne des longueures.

Good work environment

I worked in GNS and the experience is one of the best in my career. It's a fast-paced and somewhat stressful environment, but they make the environment comfortable. Interaction between people and company culture are good.

Magnificent

Ubisoft is the greatest company I have ever worked for. I was happy to work on a team with lots of other women, which is rare in the video game industry.

Correct

Une bonne place ou travailler, mais ils doivent travailler sur des salaires compétitifs, qui sont trop bas et y ajouter plus d'avantages pour consolider travail et vie personnelle. Beaucoup d'overtime et de stresse. Certain Team-Lead ne sont pas extras et les suivis avec les RH tombent dans le vide.

Good/Bad Experience depending the team

It's definitely a startup job for young people who don't have a lot of years of experience, because you will be learn a lot but could be a nightmare always depending your team mates.

Pros

Nice benefits

Cons

Low salaries regarding the actual market

Amazing workplace, free fruit EVERY WEEK, amazing people

I got this job though an acquaintance. I was contracted to build and run a summer camp for children. It was a harrowing experience and then the kids showed up, had a blast and it was all worth it.

Pros

Great cause, amazing company culture

Cons

Long hours

fun company events

There are fun events like bagel fridays, happy hours on the rooftop terrace, and annual assembly which is basically just a carnival. Employees get access to the gym for free. Also, what's not to love about cool swag.

Ubisoft is such a good company

When I switched over from an ISP in Montreal, which tend to have old mentalities, I was charmed by Ubisoft. It has been 6 years now and I still love it!
