Operations

Operations (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Revel Systems full-time for less than a year

ProsExtremely grateful for getting this position. After working in the banking industry I see what the cool factor in tech is. Unlimited PTO, work from home, stock options, catered meals and health benefits are some of the biggest perks I have experienced so far. Having a super cool manager and coworkers compound that. This is a successful and growing company that allows you to speak out and make decisions on things that are usually made on your behalf in other companies. Also located at a great downtown location. This company is growing at a fast rate with a solid outlook.

ConsWorking in operations I had first hand knowledge of the issues the company was facing, which was that the program was buggy. Within a few short months Revel hired more QA and developers which released consecutive builds within a short time that made this program clean. This group is now building upon the software to include more perks and useful material for the customer.

Working for a new company requires the employee to be really good. The resulting turnover for the sales team was high for awhile due to this. Currently there is a new Sales Manager that is bringing stability by hiring great people and coaching them appropriately which in turn is increasing revenue for the company. Keep it up!

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the job environment fun! - Which it is - Giants game on Friday!

An Evolving Business

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Revel Systems full-time for more than a year

Pros- Plenty of challenges. I very rarely have a chance to get bored as I have to switch gears quite often.
- Fantastic coworkers as I really enjoy working with my team.
- Good benefits such as medical, dental, vision, life, catered food, etc.
- A product I can talk about without being embarrassed or having to bend on my morals. I really like technology, I truly believe we have a good product that we are still investing in, and we are focusing hard on customer experience. I'm a huge believer in good customer service so I really feel well about our direction.
- Training for all new hires in the product from a support standpoint. Everyone that works here must know at least the basics of the product.

Cons- Growing pains as we progress from a start-up to a more seasoned company.
- Some issues with management over time. There have been a couple problems here and there, but this happens as the company grows. I can say that when problems are discovered, solutions are found.
- We are generally on the low-end to average for salaries, depending on the specific position though benefits and options help mitigate this situation.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to listen to employees, customers, and the industry direction. While we have had some amazing success, this industry is rapidly evolving and we don't want to be left behind. In addition, continue to invest in our employees. We've really stepped up on the customer support experience and we need to be sure we make a similar investment in our personnel.

Stellar

Operations Manager (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Revel Systems full-time for less than a year

ProsIncredible product with unique angle on market

Unlimited opportunity for increased responsibility and growth

Management is accessible and encourages employees to innovate and create change

ConsThe company has grown faster than certain systems, so there's a lot of work to be done! But that's the reason I love being here. The opportunity to build and create what didn't previously exist.

Great Opportunity

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Revel Systems full-time for less than a year

ProsThe opposite of the movie "Office Space": real, hard work with great coworkers.
Tons of opportunity for growth, I have been able to work on any project that interests me, and senior management takes my ideas seriously.
So much food! Plus drinks, swag, and everyone gets a macbook air.

ConsTempers (clients and staff) sometimes run high.
Clear growth plan for the next 1-3 years not communicated to staff.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrust your staff to do good work. If they can't be trusted, replace them with someone more professional, even if it costs more, it will be worth it.

Company is amazing and always going to new heights!

Operations (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Revel Systems full-time for less than a year

ProsI've worked for revel for over 6 months and seen it through series B financing. I've seen some bad hires be made and then reversed to the out the right people and I'm really happy with my direct manager and it's really exciting where the company is going.
Read good things about them and bad, as if you have doubts don't work here as you will get fired for doing bad work. But if you are good Its like a rocket ship and a lot of fun.
Fun happy hours and full of for the most part dedicated and smart people
Lots of opportunity to move up if you want to.

ConsSometimes people are put into positions that are beyond their skill level
They fire everyone that is not a fit in one month and sometimes it is sad to see your new friends get fired but always for the better.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up, REVELUP!

REVEL ROCKS, Join a wining team that is making a difference in the world.

CTO (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Revel Systems full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat perks like free lunch, dinner and snacks though out the day
Unlimited vacation but only if i could use it since i am always working :)
Challenging market place of clients to work with. Landscape is always changing all the time, never will you get bored. If you want a challenging job then this is for you. If you are person that wants to be on welfare this is not for you as you will work your butt off here and love it if you like to work hard and make a difference.

ConsLong hours
Startup so you must do a lot of roles.

Advice to Senior ManagementWell I am management we have over 7000 iPads deployed can't please everyone. You don't get to the top by making everyone happy :)

I worked at Revel Systems for less than a year and it was a great experience in a small company environment.

Account Executive (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Revel Systems full-time for less than a year

ProsSmall teams and a variety of responsibility (you can wear many hats). Success is easy to measure and it boosts morale when a new benchmark is achieved. Culture is taken seriously and continuously worked on and the management strives to improve that culture in the best way possible.

ConsLong hours. Pay was not as high as others in the space (but stock was offered to offset that).

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the vision and the good work. Your willingness to go the extra mile always shows and helps the other employees put in that bit of extra too. Of the companies in the space, you are the one that made it thus far keep up the good work and focus on keeping the employees happy.
