I have been working at THQ as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

Small teams, good people, good equipment to work with, colleagues were very knowledgeable and friendly

Cons

Unless you live in the Valley, It's quite a drive. The tech office workers are very impersonal.

    Current Employee - Vice President in Agoura Hills, CA

    I have been working at THQ full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice location. The admins are fantastic.

    Cons

    Executive leadership and board could not possibly be more asleep at the wheel. Taking a share price from $33 to .45 is amazing. What is most impressive as to how much they go from one head of studios to another despite the lack of portfolio or games studio experience. Snake oil salesman and snake oil buyers, the board and exec teams deserve each other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign before you run out of studios to crash.
