    I have been working at THQ full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None, it was a very disorganized, dissatisfying company to work for. It was operating based on the clique and posse basis and not competence.

    Cons

    - High incompetence at C-Suite level, people who can just talk the talk but inexperienced to walk it
    - Operate on hope not strategy
    - Sweep any red audit flags

    Advice to Management

    - Well, none, they ran the company to the ground and i was not surprised, just shocked it took so long, there was no way they were going to make it. They lacked ethics

    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 Management

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