How important is QA testing in software development?

I'm looking at a software company of about 30 developers. Everything looks great except there's no QA department. Is this a big warning sign?

I asked about testing plans and how QA is done, I was told that engineers are responsible for QA and all testing done should be acceptance testing. I've come from a company that writes financial software, so our QA was pretty rigorous. Is this common? Is this a deal breaker, don't go there thing?
I should emphasize that I mean QA/people testing and not unit testing. They're a strong proponent of unit testing, but an organization that size without a proper QA department says hotfix and late nights to me, though they claim it doesn't.
