Social Media Editor (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – 9 March 2018
I was an individual contractor and thoroughly enjoyed working for this company. They paid fairly for the work that I did there. I really only left because I wanted to have a job with an actual office to go into.

Sr. Software Development Engineer (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – 4 June 2017
RealNetworks has a great work culture. They have the most positive attitude towards any task and the management is really cool. They implement latest technologies for different projects. Sadly the company is not in great shape anymore as it used to be. expect layoff every year and there is no job security.

contractor (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – 4 December 2014
This is a very top-down company. The vision is stifled due to a drive to appease higher-ups. Managers are constantly in the mode of protecting themselves from work, and often don't support the team. Project managers often don't properly support the projects they head, this is relatively common at RealNetworks. However, the facilities are great and the pay was good.
Enjoyable creative enviorment where I was able to grow
Corporate Receptionist (Former Employee) – Seattle WA – 23 September 2014
During a typical day at work I answered and routed incoming calls to the appropriate person, greeted guests, helped them sign into the badging system and contacted their host, answered employees' questions from where things were located to how to book a conference room in calendar. I also took on any additional work that my team members needed help with. I learned a lot about the interworking's of a building since I worked in facilities. I also learned about the relationships between different departments and how they work together to keep a company running smoothly. Management changed a couple of times during my employment. Some were more helpful and better communicators than others. They were all fair and good managers in my experience. Dealing with upset customers over the reception phone. This was because I was not able to help them. The people there are amazing. Both the employees and most of the guests. It was a very happy place to work. I tried to keep the reception area an inviting and low stress area so that people can start their day on a positive note.
