Make yourself a favour and chose to work for another company. Fun people - Bad management.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at THQ

Pros- Good annual benefits, similar to other big companies.
- Not the worst in terms of advancement possibilities.
- Fun people to work with.

Cons- Organization is non-existent. Everything is made out of a quick thought.
- Overall bad management.
- Leadership needs to lead.
- Tons of unnecessary overtime.
- Way of thinking is old and surpassed by other companies.
- Overall, it feels that management has no confidence in their employees.
- Suggestions are impossible. You do what you are told. Management feels insulted if you ever come up with a suggestion and will give you no real reason or argument to its thinking when you make more sense than them.
- Bad communication from leads and upper management. You are often left in the dark in many situations.

Advice to Senior Management-Stop hiring your friends. Hire personal that will get the job done.
-Plan things ahead and not on quick thoughts.
-Spy on other companies' new ways of doing things. THQ feels like it is behind on many levels.
-Have confidence in your employees. Don't limit their capacities.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
