It seems that the success of Ubisoft in the video game industry has not been properly absorbed, as the French company, the most important in Europe in this sector, has in recent years been in the spotlight due to the excesses and excesses of its work. The culture and attitude of some of its employees, especially in management positions. As it has in other industries, it seems that successful gluttony can cost Ubisoft a lot as it begins to approach dangerous terrain.

It was immediately filled causing delays in decision-making or deferred expenditures. or loss of direction to the teams involved.”

Recently, another report, this time from Jason Schreyer, journalist from Bloomberg, revealed that Ubisoft workers are not happy with the decisions taken in terms of work culture and restructuring, as the CEOs and managers referred to in the harassment cases are still in the company and the only thing that has been done is to change their area, so they believe that in fact, the strategy of Yves Guillemot, President Executive, don’t do anything against sexism and racism.
