    Pros

    Unfortunately this company is no longer in business. I worked for one of their many design houses and we are one of the few left standing. THQ paid well and the benefits were solid. We also got bonus about every 6 months.

    Cons

    They were slow to respond to developer needs. quality level suffered due to low level of expectation. Upper management was a Little disconnected

    They are all gone now
