Former Employee - Senior Program Manager in Seattle, WA

I worked at RealNetworks full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Technically interesting work, good work-life balance, stress periods were only ever a few weeks in a row, usually with a known end goal and date.

Cons

The company is not doing very well and frequently changes direction.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to stick to goals that make the most sense financially and that are achievable.

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

    Pros

    Good people. Casual/laid back environment. Tries to still have the feel of a start-up. Pretty good benefits.

    Cons

    The Company is going no where. I had zero faith in upper management to get the company back on track.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire upper management and find people who won't run the company into the ground.
