    I worked at RealNetworks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good at promoting to higher levels of responsibility, and allows you to move laterally to new types of role (after proving yourself for a few years in the field they hired you for). Pays OK.

    Cons

    Glaser and his executive minions can be nasty bullies. Glaser will call your ideas "stupid" in front of your peers/bosses if he disagrees. Plus the company is living off the past with no clear strategy of where to take the company in the 21st century.


  2. Great people, hard workers, but lack of innovative thinking.

    I have been working at RealNetworks full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people are great to work with. Many long timers. Company has lots of cash in the bank.

    Cons

    The company lacks innovation and forward thinking. It seems that RN is always one or two steps behind the competition when getting new products out the door. Groups are very "top heavy", meaning too much management, not enough worker bees.

    Advice to Management

    Become more agile.
