    Pros

    It had very broad opportunity and was an exciting and dynamic company in the early years, its growth has slowed substantially recently.

    Cons

    The company lost its direction and the market changed a lot around it and consequently the opportunities there have diminished.

    Advice to Management

    Find a business where Realnetworks can leverage all of its unique assets and make the company a dynamic and fun place to work again.

    Pros

    Technology driven, good location, get to use the latest technologies, still has a good name in the Seattle job market

    Cons

    Lot of politics in the company. If you are on the losing side, your head is on the line.
    The company has no clue on the direction it is going. Non existent sales/marketing team. No new business in the pipeline.
    The company is just burning the cash from the settlement with Microsoft. So its days are numbered.
    The managers don't know how to manage their teams. No direction from the top management.
    Because of the downsizing and attrition, the load on the individuals has increased a lot. No work life balance as you are expected to work long hours and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Need to find new business, develop new product ideas, get a strong sales team, communicate to the teams, set direction to the team
