Solid, fun place to work
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAApril 4, 2019
Good place to work where people treat each other with respect and kindness. People appreciated each other's hard work, which made it easier when tough situations came up.

I had a very supportive manager and a good team.

Hardest part of the job was dealing with large amounts of last-minute unplanned work that came in from external partners. This is common across the game industry, and was not unique to Ubisoft. However, teams pulled together to hit these tight deadlines.

Temps beware
Technical Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Morrisville, NCMarch 31, 2019
Hey I worked at Ubisoft under contract, first off they don't pay well for the location Morrisville has some high paying jobs but this job only pays temps 12.00 an hour on top of that they don't even get paid lunch or break and since your a temp you don't get any overtime before permanent employees you only have free coffee. Your hours are cut only getting 32 or less. They not only under paid but cut our contract.
Pros
Free coffee, free wife
Cons
No free snacks, low hours, no benefits

Very easy going
Concept Artist (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QCMarch 2, 2019
Ubisoft has been very comfortable and easy going. The pay isn't great, but it's plenty for the area's cost of living. People are friendly, but with the size of the company, it sometimes feels a bit corporate and lacks the personal, fun culture of smaller studios. I was always able to take time off when needed, come in late or leave early, etc. Very little stress or difficult deadlines. However, there's a lot of poor management and direction on some projects. Many directors are in their position because of office politics, not because they are competent.
Pros
Easy going, lots of vacation, comfortable life
Cons
Office politics contributes to advancement more than competence

Fun Workplace
Junior Game Tester (Former Employee) –  IndiaFebruary 20, 2019
No real growth within the company unless someone relocates to another state or country. Job is nice if you are going to school or have roommates to be able ease the burden of bills. Low pay to sit and talk to people on social media sites. If you're looking to pursue this job and grow be prepared to stay in your position for two years for a slight pay increase.
I loved working here! Everyone was welcoming and kind. People across the different departments were always willing to help each other.
Great workplace and Very Friendly Culture.

Good luck
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Morrisville, NCFebruary 6, 2019
If you're not a geeky, white, and socially awkward don't even apply. You wont advance and if you're not buddy buddy with higher ups or people that control things there, good luck. The culture within this company is trash Great company but this particular location is full of racism. Apply and see for yourself. Nothing quite like having employees be afraid of you because of the way you look. Get ready for some awkward, extremely uncomfortable moments if your a person of color.

Tech Manager (Current Employee) –  Pointe-Claire, QCJanuary 28, 2019
unfair system with no protection for its workers and staff. Promises will be made that wont always be followed. Fun job with lots of potential to be a great place to work but too many internal problems.

Care more about the quantity than quality
Spanish Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Morrisville, NCDecember 14, 2018
Ubisoft Customer Relations Center. In other words Customer Support. This job pay is alright , not something that will help you live on your own or raise a family with. Even though it was 8hrs of work they felt long and stressful because everything had to be perfect. Work conditions are catered to quantity and not quality, they care more about the numbers than the quality you would want to put in helping the player. Also, if you are not in the inner circle of higher ups working there, then forget about, is not a secure job and always have a backup. ( I mean no job is 100% secure but this takes the cake) always think about having a backup plan y you plan to join. Make sure to be on time and ready to work, CRC is very strict on attendance policy, no matter if you have an emergency or you feel terrible and all you want is to lie in bed, you are expected to bring what they call their thought of a valid excuse (death note, doctor note, court note, army note) signed and printed, even if you had an emergency along the way to work expect to bring a valid excuse or else it will count as a warning or strike. You barely get vacation days unless you have have slaved yourself to earn them. Now you do learn lots of technical support for pc and console that will help you with other jobs as well as a sense of what goes behind the scene in a gaming company. I advise not to get your hopes up here, the ambiance is pretty cool and you meet some good people along the way. So just beware.
Pros
Ambiance is pretty cool and you meet some good people along the way

Very good lunching platform in the IT world
QA Engineer (Former Employee) –  BucharestNovember 30, 2018
A gaming industry company with a lot of available positions for both entry level and senior level staff. As an entry level you will have the opportunity to grow your knowledge and professionalism and understand the IT environment. Depending on your qualities, you may have different options for promotions, but mostly it will require a lot of years of dedication. Usually, gaming passionate persons will do better than staff that are professional but more IT oriented.
Pros
Very good lunching platform for all qualifications
Cons
Takes a lot of time to pass through the stages and become a Senior
