I have been working at Revel Systems full-time
Revel has an amazing culture of hardworking and driven people. Revel also has great perks like free snacks, free gym membership, and all the other excellent perks you’d expect from a San Francisco start up. The people, the product, and the company is hands down the best place I’ve ever worked at.
The main obstacle to keeping the momentum to IPO and taking the company to the next level is the Out of Touch and Out of Depth new CEO who assumed a leadership position recently. I agree with the other reviews on this site that were recently posted and am seriously concerned his leadership style is polluting our wonderful environment with poorly timed negativity and fear that he’s injecting in on a daily basis.
The CEO is out of touch because he completely disassociates from the employees. He does not say a single word to anyone and walks around ignoring people like we are not even here. That is if he’s actually in the office (he only works 3 to 4 days a week) maybe he goes golfing or rides his motorcycle.
The truth is even when the guy is actually in the office he’s not really there, that is to say he’s not interacting with the other humans who actually put in the hard work to make the company what it is today.
Advice to Management
The CEO is completely out of his depth in running this technology company, I don’t think he’d ever used an Apple product prior to joining the company. He doesn’t even have a LinkedIN profile. How are you going to take a technology company to the next level if you barely can use new technology yourself?
I’ve heard countless people come to me with these exact same concerns and I wanted to add my voice to these glass door reviews so that our investors take this seriously and do something before it’s too late.
If I were the folks at Welsh Carson, I’d reconsider the decision of CEO and protect my investment. There are far better options readily available as the other reviews mentioned.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Revel Systems (San Francisco, CA).
Phone screen with a recruiter was quickly follow up with an in person interview. Very basic questions, I could tell that they were clearly conducting a lot of interviews and the interviewers were bored. One woman in particular was so bored she couldn't stop looking at her phone where I could clearly see her perusing her personal Facebook feed. I didn't hear back for a while, which wasn't a surprise and eventually just moved on but thought I'd share my experience since I've since had several friends have similar negative experiences.
