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.

    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!!!
