    Pros

    Food and address. Executives seem to care although performance isn't there.

    Cons

    The product is old and not competitive, growth slow, frequent layoffs, gung-ho company meetings followed by poor results. The core team has been together for years and seems to have trouble with new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Find better management. Live up to your stated values.

    Pros

    If you like drinking at work then go for it.

    Cons

    Bad management people from Australia promoted and never should have been, COO should have never been in this position and only taken as baggage from a merger. All around not a good place to work and turnover is high!

    Advice to Management

    Simple.....sell!

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

    Pros

    The company truly believes in looking after their people. They do all they can to make sure their employees are comfortable and well equipped for success. I must say my Manager was the best I had. Full support and alway on my corner.

    Cons

    Processes change all the time. Some of the decisions take too long and some of the systems need a closer look.

    Advice to Management

    I think they have can be a little more transparent and trust more in the employees.

    Pros

    1. Plenty of room for process improvement for someone looking for a fixer-upper
    2. Young and fun culture; frequent social events and occassional team building exercises
    3. Decent benefits and perks

    Cons

    1. Many smart individuals, but a few clueless ones wasting space
    2. No viable strategy to achieve growth targets; rely on new funding to buy time
    3. Good company mantra of "no bs," if they could only practice what they preach
    4. In business over a decade yet no sign of earnings

    Advice to Management

    Take a risk and invest heavily on product releases. Industry leading products sell themselves.

    I have been working at Nitro full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Supportive Culture - Everyone at Nitro is ingrained to be supportive and that is from all levels. The COO and CEO will take a meeting with anyone in the company, if they want to talk about their career trajectory or they just need advice they will listen and give feedback. You must be confident enough to ask for this support, and if you are, you will receive it.

    Career Growth & Management - Throughout my time at Nitro I have been given more responsibility each month/quarter/year etc. My managers have really taken the time to develop my career, they take a serious interest in what I want to do and new responsibilities I want to take on, and they are extremely supportive. I have hands down never had better managers at any previous job. Even though they are my bosses/teachers they also my biggest supporters.

    Hiring - I think that we hire very well for our culture, everyone gets along and everyone is a true Nitro culture fit meaning they are a little bit type A, a little bit crazy about their domain, but they are all A players, and who wants to be on the B or C team?

    Fast paced environment - We move fast here, if you're asked to do something, it probably means right now, but I thrive in this type of atmosphere and would consider it a definite pro, I would hate to sit around all day board out of my mind.

    Transparency - In my specific position I have a lot of knowledge that is going on in the company at any given time, and I can honestly say that the leadership team is very transparent about everything. They want people to feel that they are in the loop.

    Good times and good people – We love to celebrate and we do so really well. I have never been to an event like a Nitro event. Holiday parties, Team Events, Leadership Events, President’s Club, Offsites, everything is planned perfectly and always runs smoothly. And Nitro knows how to celebrate right, we don’t have parties every week like some people might think but when we do they are done very well. And lastly, the people, just good people. I have a lot of respect for everyone I work with and have even become close friends with a few of them.

    Cons

    Of course there are cons, because what job is perfect?
    You must be willing to be vocal about what you want/need in your job. Otherwise chances are you could get overlooked.
    You need to move super-fast and with urgency, if you prefer a more laid back working environment this might not be the right place for you.
    You should be super committed to your job, and I am not saying it the only thing in your life, but it should be important to you and you should be invested. If you’re looking to come in do the bare minimum and clock out at 5pm you’re at the wrong company.
    There are growing pains and things can change very rapidly, so if you’re not good on constant change I also wouldn’t recommend Nitro to you.

    Pros

    Great people. Great Product. Tons of room to grow. Nitro is just getting started. I've been here for years, and am just as excited to be working here as the day I started. Management and the C-Level are truly reachable and "there for you", when you need them.

    Cons

    Some people find the pace a bit overwhelming, but if you want to kick some butt and go up against some big time targets, this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you do!
