Not a good sign. Even healthy project based companies dont like to release employees like this. Programmers and designers are not commodities like you might find in day labor and can be expensive to rehire and train. I certainly wouldn't go back unless I had no other options or there was a really good reason. They could be the bottom 5% but I'm guessing not.
Anyway, I've liked most of their recent games and didn't thing they were exceptionally buggy. I encountered no issues with Alpha Protocol or Fallout NV that I thought were unacceptable and actually really enjoyed the games. I was considering getting DSIII just because they developed it cause I know I wouldn't want it otherwise.
