Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at RealNetworks full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

In today's market the benefits, are very good.

Cons

Revolving door CEO, no direction, company is an ATM machine for the Chairman of the Board.

Acting CEO is an autocrat.

Management has now view down into what the company is really doing.

Employees are fodder, and are expendable.

No new products in ages.

HR is out to screw employees.

Under-market salaries.

Advice to Management

Remove head from anus, listen to your employees. Ship a new product!!!
