I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Revel Consulting in December 2011.
Interview Details –
My experience with Revel was not necessarily negative nor exceptionally positive. I first had a phone screening with a recruiter who explained about the company and a few weeks later she scheduled an interview with two managers, one to give a case study interview and the other to do a “behavioral” interview.
The case study interview consisted of the manager providing scenarios to see how one problem solves. However, very little information or context was provided for a problem that would need to be more thoroughly analyzed to come up with appropriate solutions. The behavioral interview consisted of walking a person through my resume and answering a project management related question. I didn’t feel that either assessed my competencies, past experience or future potential well at all. It seemed that they had already made a decision about my qualifications.
Candidates should beware that their “Pure Consulting” - “reduces the barriers between great minds and great opportunities” is silly marketing messaging. It only means they work just like the other “boutique” consultancies – they manage the client, negotiate the rate, write the SOW and occasionally touch base with the client. They want the consultants to focus only on the work. Nothing new there.
Revel doesn’t actually provide a collaborative work environment nor do they provide any professional development training as their website states. When I asked about this, they said that they don’t do much team project collaboration and I was told they have no formal development programs for associates – they only do occasional peer-to-peer mentoring or brown bag lunches on a topic. Again, same as other consultancies. Also, their pay rates are no higher and in some cases lower than other consultancies. Revel needs to better evaluate people who have broad and deep experience, knowledge and ability. People who have years of industry experience and have managed an array of projects, from strategy to execution. I think Revel thinks too highly of themselves and have an elitist attitude. Revel is not a company with which I would want to work .
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Revel Consulting in September 2010.
Interview Details – At the time the copnay hired to positions, not to have a bench. As a result the interview/hiring process took quite a while. Once they had secured a position i recieved a call and we closed with an in person 1:1 interview.
Interview Question – Standard light interview questions, do you understand what consulting is about? What are your goals? Clarification of the bench time policies. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Rate negotiation is limited to what what the client will pay, thier markup and what you will settle on.
Pros: The individuals at Revel are all passionate people, who really put their time towards getting things done and meeting with others when not on a client engagement. – Full Review
