    Some Good Projects, Not A Great Company

    Pros

    - Sausage Party the film - Decent base salary - The occasional company event

    Cons

    - No overtime pay, No benefits - Painfully Inexperienced Management - An odd culture of fear, within the studio - were production commentary, and any talk and/or acts attempting to improve processes were discouraged and met with hostility. - Not enough toilet facilities for the number of people working at the studio. - Located in a bad area of town; If you park your car anywhere near the studio it can and WILL, most likely, get broken into and vandalized.

    Pros

    There are plenty of good people working there. The projects are good. The interior of the building is nice.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    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!

    Cons

    I have not experienced any cons working at Nitrogen.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    I did not find any cons working at Nitrogen Studios

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    None that I have experienced.

    Pros

    Good pay, good training. You will receive enough reviews on the work you submit.

    Cons

    No overtime pay, but workload will force to work overtime for your quota. This wouldn't be bad if the studio wasn't located in a bad part of town where you have to walk home in the dark, in fear of getting mugged or stabbed. The busses don't run late either.

    Pros

    Very roomy. Decent chairs. They have a gym.

    Cons

    Supervisors and management lie like no tomorrow. Management will brush off problems and will not act on them until it becomes critical. Even then their solution tends to be temporary and they will forget about it.
