    I have been working at Nitrogen Studios full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    I worked at Nitrogen Studios for more than a year

    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

    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.

    I have been working at Nitrogen Studios full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    I worked at Nitrogen Studios full-time

    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.
