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 ManagementAdvice

-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.

    I have been working at THQ

    Pros

    Given my experience, there were a lot of opportunities to sit down and code out various projects. There was a certain level of autonomy involved as well.

    Cons

    There were times of disorganization. The software engineering process is not very well defined, and could sometimes lead to a redundancy of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to improve the communication between the product development department, and the management.

    Pros

    THQ has been very compassionate in dealing with its employees.It has a fair environment and allow a somewhat growth for its people.

    Cons

    By being remote to the HQ perks, THQ Canada offers little opportunities for growth. Salaries and Benefits are somewhat equivalent to the industry. Base salaries are higher elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on your product range, less politics, recognize the changes in the industry and stop the workplace bullying done by some Senior Managers.
