    Pros

    The one thing about Nitro I have noticed is how engaged Senior Management is with each employee. You want that in your employer. Health insurance, gym membership, wine tastings, catered lunches, and more make you want to go to bat for Nitro because they make it seem as if they are going to bat for you. I will also say Nitro will do anything to try and be better and they understand certain risks may be made and will fix it if it is not working.

    Cons

    Growing pains. Every company has growing pains and through these you have a learning experience. This can be viewed as a pro too but you can definitely see some decisions be made and they may or may not work out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course.

    Pros

    Amazing people, great atmosphere that promotes growth and a collaboration of ideas. All of the upper level team is easily accessible whom make you feel welcome and greet you with a smile. The company is growing, yet small enough to get some hands on experience in a number of positions. Catered lunches are great, a fridge and shelves stacked with any snack you may wish for; and if not available it will be ordered. Those things are all great, but what makes it truly amazing are the handpicked teams and the 'work hard' 'play hard' environment that has been created. It's not everyday where you can have a meeting, build a product, and have a drink all while laughing at random stories from Australia, reenactments of scavenger hunts, random acts of silliness; all while feeling like you have been a part of the group from the beginning.

    Cons

    If you are not used to a fast paced environment then this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to look to your current staff and harness their talents while continuing to bring in individuals that will enhance the culture.

    Pros

    Great working environment - able to spread your wings and make a difference.
    Friendly co-workers, love a beer with a work hard, play hard attitude.
    It's been an amazing ride since joining.

    Cons

    I've been here for awhile and there are the occasional frustrations but having worked at numerous Companies before this they pale into comparison. There are enough great people to speak to and work through anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing! Working a treat so far.

    Pros

    Alcohol on premise to numb the pain of having to work at this sweat shop.

    Cons

    Don't be fooled by the glowing reviews. Nitro had their administrative assistants and their internal recruiters write all the positive reviews to lure in more suckers. By having an artificially high star rating its easier for the internal recruiters to get more candidates to interview and accept positions they will ultimately regret 1 month after starting work.

    They fire people often here, high turnover. Micromanaging.

    Very cramped work spaces. No promoting from within. Unrealistic goals driven by an out of touch executive team. Long hours, no working from home. Taking time off is strongly discouraged.

    Micromanaging.

    Their tagline: No B*llsh#*. Real tagline: All B*llsh#*!

    Did I mention micromanaging?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and make changes before the mass exodus out of Nitro begins.

    Pros

    The team cares about creating a streamlined product that makes sense for businesses and individuals. And they care about quality of all assets.

    Cons

    I currently have no downsides to relate for working here. The "no bs" attitude is refreshing and welcome.

    Keep doing what you're doing. I have nothing negative to say, and I have not heard anyone else with an opposing view to mine. It seriously makes me love coming to work every day.
