Pros

Revel is trying to foster an atmostphere of pure consulting. They want to get out of the staff augmentation world and that's a good strategy.

Cons

Revel has a plan, but fails to adhere to it. There execution has not been trustworthy, saying one thing but more commonly doing another and sadly that includes making commitments at hire time they do not have the will to follow through on.

Advice to Management

Don't just say the right thing, do it. Actions are not optional. Get some skin in the game and don't sell anything you can't back up.

    Pros

    Revel refers to it's brand of consulting as "PURE", which to me really means an entreprenuerial spirit. The environment truly is what you make of it. Yes, you do have to work hard, smart, and fast. In many ways it's similar to a startup environment in that the company runs very lean. I see this as a great "pro" for self-starters with a strong work-ethic . You'll learn a ton, accomplish more than you ever could at a larger organization, and be rewarded at the end of the day (both intrinsically and tangibly). There aren't defined career paths here, so you do have to carve out that path for yourself with hard work and a proactive, positive, can-do attitude.

    Cons

    This environment is not for everyone. It's work hard/ play hard, with an emphasis on the work at times. Those coming from larger, thicker, organizations may find the lean environment challenging in that a lot is expected, and you won't get a pat on the back for clock-watching status quo type output.

    Advice to Management

    More visibility into companywide strategy would be nice. Ensure hires are a cultural fit able to navigate Revel's entrepreneurial waters.

    Pros

    Pure Model - great for consultants that just want to do a good job & have decent pay. You don't have to worry much about the politics and imperfect review system.

    Solution Manager Track - great for motivated individuals to manage a robust team, work with high profile clients, and run you own P&L(s).

    Cons

    Pure Model - comp cap due to margin & bill rate, lack of growth opportunity, and staffing company feel for some.

    Solution Manager Track - overfunction due to demand & expectations from client/account/consultant/internal COE. We've to consistently mindshift to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. The focus is great people = great product. Let's ensue we continue to provide & add-on benefits - competitive pay, PTO, sabbatical, paternal leave, and 401(k) matching.
