I didn't like it. Hire some kind people.... Worst job ever.Mar 22, 2014 - Render Wrangler in Vancouver, BCRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
None that I am aware of.
Weird people. I feel like the management doesn't treat everyone equally. They don't pay well at all. The studio is located in a poor locations just outside of downtown Vancouver near Main & Hastings which is the worst area in the city full of homeless people and drug addicts. Very scary. This place is soooooooo disorganized - Oh my Lord. I'm still surprised this place exists. Nicole takes care of the hiring, she's the owner or something but when it comes to picking up the phone - she will never pick it up. Seriously.... This place is just weird. I didn't even make any friends. And people just kept telling on each other behind their back. It kinda reminded me of a kindergarden.... I remember this one time I went to the kitchen to make a tea and I got crap for it because I wan't working and I was wasting my time in the kitchen. HELLLLOOO I was making a tea..... Am not allowed to go to the bathroom ? Do i have to punch out when I need to pee ? and then punch in when I'm done.... Conclusion - this place is a joke...Continue reading

Terribly run studioFeb 20, 2016 - Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, BCRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Good hours and a fairly interesting project to work on. Studio is spacious with updated workstations. Location has gotten better with more cafes and restaurants in the area.
Top management has no experience running a studio. Turnover is severe creating a general feeling of instability. Lack of effective planning and no leadership constantly jeopardizes work delivery. Unprofessional behavior by senior staff is tolerated by management leaving artist to fend for themselves. Poorly implemented pipeline holds back artists on a daily bases.Continue reading

do your best to avoid this placeFeb 15, 2016 - AnimatorRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
as in any place, most of the co workers are pretty good people. the work space is nice. there's a large dining room with a pool table which is nice.
company culture is horrible. key characters in mid and upper management are troublesome. people constantly quit this place for a good reason.Continue reading

Psychotic OwnersAug 23, 2017 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
There are plenty of good people working there. The projects are good. The interior of the building is nice.
Greg has unresolved anger issues, and power trips. Nicole is inexperienced at producing, yet allocates herself that responsibility. Together they repetitively kill moral and lose talented workers. Search news articles under the studio name and youll see.Continue reading

Good ExperienceDec 14, 2016 - Compositor in Vancouver, BCRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Talented co-workers with good opportunities for learning and improving skills. I especially like that everyone is encouraged and expected to be responsible for their own work getting done, when any issues arose the senior staff were very helpful, accommodating and considerate to individuals requirements when needed. Flexible relaxed atmosphere with good facilities and general camaraderie amongst the staff. Good spacious working environment and cool projects also.
I did not find any cons working at Nitrogen Studios

ArtistNov 30, 2016 - Animation ArtistRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I have worked here for a few years and I am very happy. Management has been very understanding when I have had to take unexpected time off work for family matters. The people who work here are all great, and the ones that aren't usually weed themselves out. I enjoy coming to work everyday, and I get paid well.
None that I have experienced.

Great place to workJan 12, 2017 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I enjoy working at Nitrogen, it is an awesome studio with a relaxed atmosphere and it's full of awesome, talented people. Management is approachable and down-to-earth. The projects are really cool. The studio itself is a great office space, full of character - and there's a rooftop patio!
I have not experienced any cons working at Nitrogen.
