    I have been working at Rêv Worldwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The products are cutting edge in the payment/travel space. You get to work with super smart people from all over the world. No one is breathing down your neck--the leadership trusts you to get your work done and do it well. That said, you do need to be prepared to work really hard.

    There is a start-up feel and more work than people, so you can jump in lots of places if you're interested. In sum, intellectually rigorous, cool people, and great vision.

    Cons

    Third party dependencies can be frustrating when you're eager to move a product to market.

    I've seen some less than stellar people get disgruntled and leave, but really there's been very little turnover in last two years.

    Advice to Management

    As a women, I'd like to see more women in leadership.

    Pros

    The company has finally found the market-fit and the path to grow. Very excited to be part of a company in the travel and payments space.

    Cons

    Still some legacy issues and having to wear different hats

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on the main programs and partners; keep innovation at the core of the company

    I worked at Rêv Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Had a lot of respect for the management and worked with some very talented and motivated people. Learned a good amount about the payments industry. I thought John Mitchell did a good job when he was CEO. It was, however, a good experience to work there.

    Cons

    Thought that the company needed a bit more focus. Some initiatives never panned out. Thought that a number of talented people weren't listened to and some BSers had too much pull with management.

    Advice to Management

    Better focus on the products and groups that were bringing in revenue and dump the initiatives that were not panning out.

    Pros

    I have been working in Rev for 6 months and so far it has been an intense, exhilarating and educational ride. I am surrounded by really smart, passionate, motivated people and together I feel like we are all in one boat with one mission to make this company great. Our growth potential is incredible and everyday we are breaking new boundaries. From a technical perspective, we have a very cool product but its really at its infant state, so with a proven economic model, a platform that stands behind it and an infinite amount of development potential going forward, boredom or indifference is not an option. It has all the ingredients for passionate work and financial prosperity so right now, there is no other company in the tech industry I would rather be.

    Cons

    The Far West area in Austin for me is not the most convenient location.

    Pros

    The company has a great multicurrency payment platform that has been proven in many countries around the world. Rev also has a large customer base and premier partners. The team gets along well and there is a positive environment with good opportunities for cross-training and professional development. It's a very dynamic environment.

    Cons

    Expect more uncertainty than in a large, well-established company. You have to jump in and take the initiative--there is little hand holding. The fintech space is ever evolving and Rev is in start-up mode.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on working to grow revenue and profitability.

    -Re-focussed strategy
    -Company has a win-win mindset when dealing with its current customers as well as how the company is approaching new business opportunities

    Not a lot to comment here as the ship has been righted; it just takes time to get the new culture embedded.

    Stay the course and have a ruthless focus on executing the programs very quickly. Appropriately phase in the many opportunities that are in the pipeline.
