Revel Consulting – Why Work For Us?


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?)


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.


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.



“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.



“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.



“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.

    Easy Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Revel Consulting.


    All sizzle, no steak. I started a conversation with Revel because of a referral from not one, but two people who work there. The interview process took over 4 months during which they had me speak to 8 or 9 different people including the CEO (a super smart but very polarizing character who cancelled on me at the last minute twice). Several times I received a verbal offer but they failed to follow up with a formal one in writing. Revel tries really hard to distance themselves from a staffing agency, under a moniker they call the "true consulting" model. However when they finally gave me a project to consider, it was little more than being a presentation jockey for not one, but two mid-level managers at a well-known client of theirs. When I questioned the nature of the engagement and told them that I did not feel comfortable "interviewing" with the client without being technically a Revel employee I was told that I did not really understand the "true consulting" approach and that perhaps Revel was not for me. True that! If "true consulting" means that anyone with a heartbeat who is decently proficient in Powerpoint is a great fit for a project even if they have little relevant experience then yes, I do not understand "true consulting". Why not call it staff augmentation which is what it really is?
