    I worked at THQ full-time for less than a 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..??
