Product Manager Intern (Former Employee), Seattle, WA – October 29, 2013
Interesting internship opportunity while getting my MBA. They didn't make good use of my talents or skills however. My manager was traveling and out of the office most of the time I was there that summer.
Some great parts to the business and super people, as long as Seattle isn't included...

Pros: reston team, including team and management
Cons: all things seattle
The location in VA experienced great growth and had golden years as WiderThan (formerly Ztango). WTA had attributes that made it a fantastic place to work, and attractive enough for a hostile takeover to take place from corporate Real in Seattle. The positive benefit like a free Rhapsody account was a nice perk, though pales in comparison to the balance – more... of the equation. My team and department and managers up through the WTA CEO were outstanding and are solidly referable, and would work with and assemble as a team again. RealNetworks at the home office took a diamond and threw it in a pile of sh t, thoroughly tarnishing a once-sound business. That approach doesn't give you a pile of diamonds, just a sh t-covered diamond. How many CEO's have transitioned through and how's the timeline on the stock price shaped over the past few years?
