    I worked at Reval full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Reval has a very close knit team environment and is a great fun place to work and grow. It definitely fosters a great work-life balance.
    Since it has a small firm feel, there is definitely room for career growth if you know your 'thing'.
    And there is definitely great opportunities to learn on the job as the projects are usually new and interesting things coming up in Risk Management space.

    Cons

    Reval has great reserves of smart techies n smarter deal makers. It sure has a tremendous upside potential for growth as a firm, but one that has yet to be 'unlocked' !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe a facelift for the Product GUI is long overdue to let it stand apart from competitors?! :) ..

    Wishing Reval all the very best.

    Pros

    To be fair, they have a decent looking office on fifth avenue in New York. HR staff are generally nice and helpful.
    Some colleagues are hard working and decent people. The company holds some nice parties.

    Cons

    The company has very low budget and very tight timelines of delivering product. It put emphasis on product delivery rather than product quality. The company do not have resources and man power to document their products so you are walking in a maze if you work there. Some of the employees spend their days spying on others and tattle tale rather than being cooperative and focus on their work. The management is arrogant and condones such unproductive behavior. They treat very capable employees like garbage and let them go in an annual ritual. The company pays symbolic bonus and boosts morale by handing out "awards" which mount to nothing in reality. The stock option package is so small that a 9 year old can figure out that it is not worth much EVEN IF the company does have a great IPO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be modest and value your employees. Try to improve product quality and internal documentation by creating an internal wiki-page. While it is okay not to pay a decent bonus since it is more of a technology rather than financial company, the company needs to give employees hope by handling out a decent option package like most tech firms do. The thrill of being given a "best contributing employee of the team" award won't last very long when one realizes there is not much substance to it.

    I worked at Reval

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing. If you decide to work here, the demise of your career is your own fault.

    Cons

    Basically everything, including very incompetent people, a product that doesn't work, can't be sold, implemented, or serviced properly. The icing on the cake is an HR department that made up about 5 or 6 of the last 8 reviews, which also helps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keeping growing HR, it's the key to success, building recurring revenue, and heck, curing world hunger.

    I worked at Reval full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    My manager was demanding but fun to work with and a good mentor. Company environment was fun and relaxed but often all hands on deck and people worked very hard. Many colleagues were intelligent and personable. Good vacation policies and generous compensation.

    Cons

    Tight timelines, low budgets and small teams to deliver on big projects and strategies. Lack of communication between departments. Never IPO'd so employee option program stalled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More modest and achievable aims.

    Pros

    -Challenging, rewarding work
    -Respectful colleagues
    -Cutting edge product
    -Work-life balance

    Reval is the best company that I have ever worked at. I have no desire to go anywhere else as long as the current management team is in charge.

    Cons

    -Pay is generally good, but some people need to be brought up to market levels
    -Communication between departments in different countries (US and Austria in particular) needs to be improved

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put emphasis on knowledge transfers between US and Austria

    Pros

    Being in a state of rapid growth, there is plenty of opportunity and mobility. The atmosphere is positive and colleagues are overall optimistic and dedicated. Plenty of feedback provided by management on performance. Being independent and self-driven is a must.

    Cons

    A little top heavy with some senior management. Working with different departments brings to light a breakdown in communication which need to be fixed first within departments. Managers+ can make a big difference if they focus on a solution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of decisions and implementation of change need to be done to keep moving the company in the right direction. Make the changes as often as possible and lead by example.

    Pros

    Laid back working environment and good location in the city. There is a break room which is nice and the company events are good.

    Cons

    Low salary compared to the industry. Too much politics and favoritism. Not much room for growth as higher level positions are outsourced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the talent you have and promote within instead of outsourcing. Certain projects are given ridiculous deadlines.

    Pros

    Very considerate with allowing their employees to work from home, the vacation time given to their employees is very generous. Ping-Pong, Billiards, and Paint Ball.

    Cons

    No cross training, very limited mobility, Company is always looking outside for senior management roles instead of looking to promote from within.

    You have a talented group of individuals, do right by them and you will succeed.
