Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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.
