Mission: We partner with our clients to create substantial value through an innovative approach that attracts, develops and inspires people to achieve more, together.

Revel Consulting – Why Work For Us?

Revel associates pride themselves on their ability to adapt to a client’s changing needs and provide leadership, direction and focus to drive successful projects. They understand the pressures and demands of mission critical initiatives, and thrive in high intensity team environments with demanding deadlines and changing deliverables. The infrastructure and freedom we provide enables our associates to perform at their best, and we reward their success with the industry’s best compensation package. 

In the most literal sense, revel means “to take great pleasure or delight.” It is usually followed by in; to “revel in” something. In this light, revel isn’t a physical characteristic. Revel is a state of mind. A Reveler occupies that state.

We celebrate an entrepreneurial spirit which enables us to respond with agility to changing needs, provid­ing the perfect blend of intelligence and leadership to tackle any challenge. We maintain a big picture mindset, but aren’t afraid to roll up our sleeves. We entrust our engagements only to the brightest, most experienced professionals—individuals with ingenuity, integrity and a passion for transformative results.

Our professionals possess a zeal for challenges, a spirit of collaboration and a constant desire to solve real prob­lems. And, we attract the best talent through offering a comprehensive benefits package and a platform which enables them to customize their personal and professional growth.

Meet some of our Revelers. You’ll see three things within every Reveler: a drive to improve and master their skills, a desire to work free of the bureaucracy typically encountered in consulting, and a need to have a meaningful impact on the world. 

Revel offers education and exploration funds to encourage our associates to not only deepen their education but also to explore their passions.

Since 2011, Revel has supported City Year’s objective to provide year long, full-time programs for young leaders to act as tutors, mentors, and role models to help children stay in school and on track, and transform schools and communities.

Revel has helped City Year develop a strategic roadmap to reach its goals of scaling its programs more effectively and developing new, innovative methods of fundraising to support that growth. Revel also provides help in mobile and social media technologies to City Year’s fundraising efforts in order to better target and acquire a new base of donors.

Treehouse is a Seattle-area, non-profit organization that gives foster kids a childhood and a future by providing programs that help them succeed in school, fulfill key material needs, and connect them to childhood experiences every child deserves.

Revel began its support of Treehouse in 2008 through a company-wide collection for the organization’s “Wearhouse” facility, which offers kids the chance to shop for clothing, toys, and school supplies throughout the year at no cost. Revel’s work helped to boost Treehouse’s social media presence, growing followers by 55%. A key piece to the project was Revel’s ability to segment and target potential donors beyond simply a donation amount, allowing Treehouse to better customize messaging and content.

    I have been working at Revel Consulting full-time (More than a year)


    Revel has undergone dramatic investment in its operations and structure in the last few years. Most reviews on Glassdoor are sadly from the old guard. Leadership is completely committed to creating a place where people have enough support and infrastructure to fuel their creativity, while eliminating the bureaucracy, politics, and in-fighting often seen in the ranks of the Big 4.

    I spent 5yrs as a Senior Consultant and in Management at a Big 4, and can attest to how refreshing it is to be empowered to learn what I want to learn, explore POCs I want to explore, and chase the projects I want to chase. I can own my successes and failures here, and reallocate the time I would have otherwise spent traveling weekly or navigating politics into building IP and eminence where my interests are, connecting with my community, working out, and having a life. Also, I don't travel, and I come home to my family every night.

    More than anything, the biggest difference is how human-centered design has been baked into Revel's way of treating its consultants and its clients as actual people. It's not just how we approach client projects; The Community Leads are there for each other, and there for their people. Servant leadership and humility come from the top down; our CEO, Vikas Kamran, frequently thanks people personally for their efforts, and says it's *his* pleasure to serve *us*. Again, a very refreshing take on consulting.


    Not being a Big4, Revel doesn't have 25,000 people in its practice, with 2,000 Partners that all have 30yrs of experience each. So, you're not able to take your pick from 25 world experts about any random question that comes up. We do, though, have deep expertise in the areas we compete, so you will be able to find at least a few people to ask questions to, and thankfully, people are eager to help each other out.

    Advice to Management

    As Revel grows, maintain the focus we have on being people-centered, and provide transparency into the vision for growth. Keep making investments in our learning and development, and offering ways for folks to give back through non-profit partnerships like Treehouse.

    Easy Interview


    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Revel Consulting.


    Contacted through Linked In email by company recruiter, who set up a screening phone call. Next was a phone call with head of talent acquisition. A phone call then followed with the business lead for the vertical for which I was being recruited. Shortly after the phone call with the business lead, received the decline email indicating that the business lead had decided to move forward with other candidates. Throughout the process, the recruiter maintained contact, providing information on timing and next steps.

    That said, I never really got a feel for the role or why Revel was interested in me working with them. The business lead didn't seem to know anything I'd related in earlier interviews, wasn't a good interviewer and only wanted to talk about the most recent couple years of a longer career. From the tone of his questions and interviewing style, it seemed like Revel was only interested in tactical examples about how I'd met past challenges, clients with which I'd worked and whether I had direct experience with their current clients. Not much interest in whether I could bring new ideas or help grow the business. For a small consulting firm looking to expand, I expected better.
