As for the perks and benefits of working at Eidos, the company stated that "you benefit from a competitive salary and advantageous bonus plans, while having the possibility of working remotely and adjusting your work schedules in order to create your own work-family balance."
Wondering why the company chose to move to a four-day workweek? In a Q&A, Eidos Head of Studio David Anfossi said, "The idea is not to condense the working hours into [four] days, but rather to review our ways of doing things and our quality time invested, with the aim of working better!"
The positions at Eidos were open at the time of writing this article but are subject to change.
Valérie Plante has big plans for downtown Montreal if she's reelected mayor and has outlined her party's ideas for the city's economic and social recovery after the pandemic.
From free parking to planting hundreds of thousands of trees, here's what her vision for the future of downtown Montreal looks like.
Her plan, self-described as "ambitious," aims to boost what she already says has been the "best economic recovery" in Canada post-pandemic.
But while the economic aspect of downtown is looking positive, "there is still work to be done to enhance our downtown area and make it more attractive to workers, businesses, tourists, and Montrealers from all over the island," according to her party.
If reelected mayor, Plante promises to:
"support the Palais des Congrès expansion project, and consequently the covering of a part of the Ville-Marie highway;"
"offer free parking downtown on evenings and weekends in December to support our merchants during the holiday season;"
"[accelerate] construction sites and [limit] potential nuisances;"
"support the redevelopment of large offices into adequate spaces to accommodate [small and medium enterprises] and start-ups;"
make "a $1 billion investment by 2030 to develop beautiful, large public plazas in downtown, redevelop key commercial arteries and create vibrant living environments;"
"green" downtown by planting 500,000 trees in four years;
and "facilitate the transformation of vacant office space into housing."
The Montreal municipal election is on November 6 and 7.*
Back in February, OASIS immersion, Canada's largest indoor immersive experience, opened and instantly added a burst of colour to the city. It quickly became a go-to spot for locals and tourists alike, which started off by showcasing the exhibit Inspirations. And now, there's an all-new exhibit for you to check out!
MTL Blog got the chance to get a sneak peek of the new exhibit, titled Unwind, which opens to the public on Thursday, October 7.
The space is separated into three different rooms, all with a different purpose. Visitors begin by going through the "Relaxation" room where the digital art provides a sense of peace. They then make their way into the "Stimulation" room where their senses become awakened. The works presented in the final room, "Reconnection," are meant to make one feel reconnected with themselves, others, and nature.
This new immersive experience features 10 works by digital artists from both Quebec and across the globe — and it's an absolute sensory trip.
It takes approximately 75 minutes to experience the entirety of Unwind.
This unique walk-through experience is the exact dose of colour and music that our souls need right now.
