    I worked at Reval full-time

    Pros

    There are some really good people at the company and they are a leading SaaS platform in the space.

    Cons

    - Broken processes (support, knowledge transfer, product mgmt...etc.)
    - People in Sr. leadership roles that should not be
    - Morale is suffering

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to immediately recognize what is broken and start putting customers first vs. putting your head in the sand and hoping you get to cash out in an IPO.

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

    Pros

    Excellent product management, implementation and sales teams

    Cons

    Product implementation difficult and time consuming
    User interface frustrating and out dated
    Dysfunctional managers that clearly don't work well together or communicate across functions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking like small software company and learn how to communicate and treat employees like people and not parts. No aspect of mentoring, training or advancement in some departments makes working for company a job and not career.

    I have been working at Reval

    Pros

    If you are interested in the financial software industry, the company is small enough that you get an opportunity to experience different aspects of the business.

    Cons

    People aren't very intelligent, there are very apparent and unfriendly cliques in the company, expect to be completely ignored by other employees at times, peopel are more concerned about getting drunk every night. The treasury business is very niche and if that's not your thing even a little bit, you'll hate your time here. Also the pay is VERY low compared to competitors, do not expect large raises or bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage more teambuilding activities, give employees better raises/bonuses and salaries

    I worked at Reval

    Pros

    Decent technology, flexible work arrangements, ability to do nothing for a long time.

    Cons

    The pay is well below market in virtually every department but sales. A product that doesn't work and a product team/management with a bad attitude. A sales team that has trouble selling and a professional services team that can't implement the product. A CS team that can't support the product. An HR team that's growing, which is growing in a hiring freeze!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be successful again, this company needs new management across the board. It's unfortunate to watch a place with so much potential be mismanaged.

    Pros

    Good business ideas and expertise.

    Cons

    Horrible technical team. Great design ideas manifests as poor quality products resulting in customer dissatisfaction. (like targets a hammock, but ends up with hanging rope).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A great idea/design is as bad as its technical implementation. There are lots of good and hungry technical talents outside in this market.

    Hire and set right incentive for technical team, to bring ideas for solving problems instead of ideas to kibosh it.

    I have been working at Reval full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    People are nice to work with, and it is a low stress job. Managers are usually supportive about pursing side projects that benefit the company. The company cares about keeping employees happy.

    Cons

    It's worked its way into a niche and is content to stay there. Don't see any big ideas or changes coming over the horizon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to share its long term vision better with the employees, and also needs to be more proactive in improving the product. "That's how we've always done it" is becoming a more common phrase.
