A great group of people to work with made an otherwise mundane job enjoyable.

I worked at THQ full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

A great office atmosphere with wonderful people. We endured a lot of hardships but everyone was always willing to join together and help each other out.

Cons

A lack of direction and poor decisions in upper management took a company that was highly profitable to bankruptcy in the span of five years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do more research when making big decisions that have the potential to severely affect the company.

    I worked at THQ full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I got a lot of free games at the end of the year... and then they announced bankruptcy and a bunch of people I saw on a daily basis were gone in an instant...

    Cons

    Felt like I was walking on egg shells since day one at this place.
    Nobody knows what is going on, not even upper management. Speaking of upper management, there seems to be many of them while nothing is getting done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You don't need so many directors and VPs that do nothing but sap away your finances. Seriously, how many execs do you need..??
