RealNetworks - let's grow up!

Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA (US)

I have been working at RealNetworks

ProsCool people in product and technology teams, many good ideas; not always enough focus to get key things done. Leadership has waxed and waned - seems to be improving; company has made some smart moves that can indicate staying power

ConsWorst Marketing on the planet. Hands down.

Advice to Senior ManagementReally evaulate not only what people are telling you, but who is telling you what. Focus on doing a few things well.

Another Day Another Dollar

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA (US)

I have been working at RealNetworks


Pros: The people here are really nice and the job is pretty challenging. The cafeteria is pretty hit and miss with really spicy food everyday… Cons: Management doesn't always tell you what is going on so you have to figure it out through other means. Deadlines are pretty tough… Advice to Senior Management: Can't think of much to tell them at this point. More
