    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.

    Former Employee - Lead Software Engineer in Seattle, WA
    Former Employee - Lead Software Engineer in Seattle, WA

    I worked at RealNetworks full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of great people here and from what I saw the engineering teams were passionate and worked hard.

    Cons

    Too many ineffective managers, too much time wasted on products whose time has passed, not enough support to build the best products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep reinventing yourselves. Don't reward failure. Make sure teams have the resources they need to do the best job possible.
