    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Good product. Great is you have a side job/hobby. You can work from home

    Cons

    Unless you are one of the "cool kids" you are on your own to learn and solve problems

    Advice to Management

    The management team is too focused on being friends with everyone and less interested in career development for employees. Less parties, more training, room for growth, pay

    Pros

    Growth opportunities are ample and so is learning. Friendly staff and decent benefits. Senior management is very accessible and willing to guide.

    Cons

    Company growth is not very god thus limiting how much one can grow from a monetary aspect. Global locations make it a very challenging work place and frustrating at times due to communication issues

    Great work/life balance, great subject matter expertise.

    Cons

    It is a tech firm, not a financial firm. Expenses need to be better contained.

    Pros

    Teamwork collaboration is promoted highly here. It is a great place to work on the Services side as you do get to work with many different clients. The opportunity to change departments and roles does exist which is a plus. They also now match a percentage of your 401K

    Cons

    Not many to mention except minor things all companies have

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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