A crusade not a career

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

I have been working at RealNetworks

ProsPlenty of opportunity to move up and a great environment to learn. Work is fast paced and constantly changing.

ConsWork to the bone. The environments are so poorly thought out they might as well be held together with duck tape and bailing wire. Very little communication from management. It’s a lot like working on a film set. It’s really pretty from the outside but there’s nothing behind the building facades.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate more with your teams. Focus more on forward facing improvements to existing products. Help encourage a better work life balance.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
