I worked at Nitro full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

-Fantastic team
-Work hard, play hard
-Friends outside of the office
-Clever developers
-Everyone is in it together, silos aren't competing or undercutting one another
-Company respects your personal boundaries and time

Cons

-I'm pretty sure everyone there is going to die of liver failure. It is a drinky company.
-Site launches tended to last until well after midnight
-Though they take no for an answer, the company will happily eat up all of your free time and then ask for more if you let them.

    I worked at Nitro full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The perks - lunches, benefits, insurance
    Working with my team

    Cons

    Nitro was good in the hayday, however a lot of layoffs saw the culture change and shift significantly. Lack of product update and new features for Pro makes it uncompetitive. Being told to sell a specific product to customers with certain expectations, then 6 months later a change and backflip on the product. Significant cost cutting has resulted in an exodus of staff including redundancies. So many different managers and leaders over the past couple of years the vision and strategy keeps changing. Management have lost touch.
