Revel Consulting – Why Work For Us?


AT THE CORE OF EVERY REVEL ASSOCIATE, YOU’LL FIND AN ENTREPRENEUR.

At Revel, we practice PURE Consulting—the refined form of consulting that reduces barriers between great minds and great opportunities. Our platform provides all the resources, structure and tools you need to be successful, without any of the layers, hassles and bureaucracy that tend to shadow traditional consulting firms.

Literally, Revel means “to take great pleasure or delight.” It is usually followed by in; to “revel in” something. Therefore revel isn’t a physical characteristic. Revel is a state of mind. A Reveler occupies that state.

There are plenty of high achievers out there. We’re looking for achievers who want more. They are Revelers; high-achievers who occupy the Revel state of mind.

We've noticed these high-achievers—Revelers—tend to be fueled by intrinsic motivators such as autonomy, master and purpose. And, they fall into at least one of three profiles: the dreamer, the climber and the purist. When each works in tandem, Revelers achieve more, together.

\\ THE CLIMBER—Defined by determination. 
Climbers have a long-term vision with intentional and incremental goals. They constantly strive for growth and seek purpose in their work.

\\ THE PURIST—Harnesses the power of knowledge. 
Purists strive for mastery of their skill and expertise. While they respect the traditions of their particular craft, purists often seek to apply them to new disciplines and industries in novel ways.

\\ THE DREAMER—A visionary. An entrepreneur. 
Dreamers make possibilities into reality. Others may consider a dreamer’s ideas to be distinctly bold. Dreamers are self-governing and independent. They seek freedom and autonomy.

Which are you?
(Which do you want to be?)

REVEL IS THE TINDER. YOU ARE THE SPARK.
\\ FROM VIKAS KAMRAN, CEO

Through my time leading Accenture’s strategy practice in New York, I felt something was broken with the traditional consulting model. Too much travel. Too many status reports. Too much fear of failure. In short, too many barriers between ideas and action.

There was also something missing: the freedom to try new ideas, empathic connections between both customers and coworkers, and access to the information and thought leaders vital to developing novel solutions. Ironically, it was the search for these missing factors that drove me into consulting in the first place.

This epiphany sparked an idea that I couldn’t shake.

Revel.

An organization that eliminates bureaucracy and barriers. An organization that celebrates entrepreneurialism and autonomy. An organization that embraces novelty and disrupts the status quo.

My goal at Revel is to provide you the structure, the tinder, necessary to let your spark thrive. But I can only lead you so far.

It’s up to you to make it a reality.

THE CLIMBER
\\ HILARY SELING

“There is an infectious sense of energy…you get the feeling that something truly groundbreaking is unfolding.”

I was drawn to Revel by its entrepreneurial spirit and the opportunity to contribute in a meaningful way to the vision and future direction of the company.

Prior to Revel I worked for large companies. They helped me develop my strategic thinking and leadership skills. Revel gave me the opportunity to apply these skills across a variety of industries and clients while providing an opportunity to share my knowledge to help develop other associates.

The collaborative nature and variety of work are unmatched. During a given week I am exposed to emerging trends in health care, government, retail 
and travel. I am inspired and motivated by our 
associates’ drive to create measurable business impacts for our clients.

There is an infectious sense of energy at the office. I love walking into a room and seeing a group of people scribbling on the whiteboard and exchanging ideas—you get the feeling that something truly groundbreaking is unfolding. I leave with fresh perspectives and new ideas about my own project work.

I am committed to fostering a continuous learning environment at Revel. I believe each of us can make invaluable contributions by sharing our knowledge and experiences.

THE PURIST
\\ PRIYANKA BANDYOPADHYAY

“Revel has allowed me to constructively challenge and change our clients’ status-quo systems and thinking.”

I first learned about Revel from a friend who used to work here. I was attracted to the fact that it was small but evolving and growing. It had an impressive client base, was ambitious about building its culture and getting both depth and breadth in their talent pool. I saw good opportunities in a place like that, and was also particularly excited Revel was committed to growing its footprint in the emerging cloud computing space—an area of strong interest for me.

I’d been working with early stage startups for two years before I joined Revel. I was keen on working in a place which still values the entrepreneurial approach to projects; a roll-up-your-sleeves kind of culture that expects its consultants to take initiative, learn quickly, be resourceful and problem solve independently.

Everyone in the company, from leadership down, has a can-do attitude, believes in healthy debate and shows genuine enthusiasm for tackling ambiguous, challenging problems to help a client succeed. Revel is built upon the shoulders of the associates who are working with clients day in and day out; their initiative these individuals take to improve both themselves and Revel every day.

Revel has allowed me to constructively challenge and change our clients’ status-quo systems and thinking. Large companies sometimes need an infusion of entrepreneurialism and a fresh approach to problem solving from consultants like us. I’ve been given the freedom to do just that while also being able to learn and grow professionally. While I’ve worked on challenging and ambiguous projects through most of my career, consulting with Revel has given me an extra boost of confidence to take on and tackle way more than I would’ve imagined just a year ago.

THE DREAMER
\\ MATTHEW RUBRIGHT

“I’ve never run into 
any barriers management wouldn’t allow me to 
break down...”

I wanted to be at a place where I was able to make a larger impact and could really take control of my own career. I’ve heard the stories of going to larger firms where individuals play a very small role in the larger picture; you don’t get to own anything. I looked at start-ups and smaller consulting firms and liked the ambiguity of being a part of Revel.

Each member of the leadership team I’ve met with has stressed the ability for me to make this place my own—to control my own destiny. And, truth be told, 
I went right into projects and immediately started delivering hands-on results for a client.

I’ve worked very closely with my clients to develop solutions to their core problems. The internal work is fun because I’ve found colleagues and peers driving toward similar goals. We go through similar learning curves and work through complexities and problems together. It gives us a chance to trade perspectives.

I’ve never run into any barriers management wouldn’t allow me to break down, nor any projects I’ve been told I couldn’t participate in. I’m constantly challenged to do more and pushed to expand my skill set. The promise of enabling proactive associates has been met every time.

I’ve felt like I am truly contributing to the bigger picture and Revel’s identity.

MAKING LASTING CONTRIBUTIONS

Companies seeking to improve the communities in which they live and work traditionally provide monetary support to non-profit organizations working towards a worthy cause.

The goal of Revel’s Sustainable Giving program is to go beyond these traditional monetary donations and provide consulting services to ensure that non-profit organizations sustain their cause over the long run.

In addition to financial support, Revel associates draw on their strong experience as business management professionals to work with organizations and help them streamline operations, improve efficiencies, lower overhead and maximize impact. In doing so, Revel is able to further its commitment to community involvement while offering non-profits new, alternate ways to sustain their organizations and carry on their cause.

    I have been working at Revel Consulting full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Revel has a great culture w/lots of fun, smart people. The compensation and benefits are competitive, especially if you consider that the work is not nearly as demanding as the bigger firms (no travel, reasonable hours, great life/work balance, etc.). For being such a small firm it invests impressively in its people, with training funds, seminars, meetups, lunches, etc, all part of the standard program. There is a core belief that if you hire good people and give them the space and flexibility to perform, they will reciprocate and exceed expectations-- thus far it seems to be working! The work is largely in the project management space but as Revelers gain client's trust more interesting design/strategy pieces are forthcoming. The HQ has a fun open vibe and many Revelers check in here at least every couple weeks; it also provides good support to the consultants in the field. Revel hires an interesting mix of backgrounds, believing more in the need to get generally smart people that fit w/the firm culture than people with specific skill sets for the immediate project in question. Refreshingly flat hierarchy; lots of smart very committed people but surprisingly few egos-- having worked in a number of private and public sector entities I can safely say it is the best place I've worked thus far.

    Cons

    Some of the Revelers are fairly disconnected from the rest of the firm (and HQ) and may spend months working on a project without much support-- however this is usually more their choice than by HQ design. More effort is being made to create a "firm culture" and provide regular outreach/touchpoints with everyone, to increase the benefits of working together across a firm. Some projects are more interesting than others and you often don't have a lot of choice, as in most consulting firms (unless you actually sell the work). Engagements are typically longer due to the fact that they are often re-engineering/implementing business processes in larger firms, rather than simply delivering strategies. This is both a pro & a con as one gets to see more of how the clients actually work (by working alongside them instead of just for them). Also for those below the management tier there isn't always a lot of transparency around the firm strategy/goals and progress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall great work moving towards the "One Revel" strategy; the culture seems to be improving with the addition of more internal activities for Revelers. Continue fostering a culture that promotes openness and feedback.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Revel Consulting.

    Interview Details

    My interview process went really smoothly! I met with 2 different hiring managers and they asked thoughtful, conversational questions, rather than out of the textbook type of questions you usually get in interviews. I felt really comfortable stepping into their offices, the receptionist greeted me and asked if I would like refreshments while I waited and the managers were on time to the interview. I didn't hear from the hiring manager for a week but they had set the expectation that it would take up to two weeks so that they could interview other applicants. Overall had a pleasant experience and grateful to have found Revel!
