    I have been working at RevLocal full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    RevLocal has always strived to provide the best health insurance coverage available. It's not their fault why the insurance rates keep rising. It's the Federal Government's fault. It's called Obamacare.

    Cons

    Obamacare is the reason for rising rates, not RevLocal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!!!

    Pros

    No contracts for our clients, management cares about your career and personal goals, and we make our own hours. The great thing about this company is the more you put in, the more you get out.

    Cons

    Doing 20-30 dropins may suck, but it's necessary for success.

    I have been working at RevLocal full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Always looking to promote within. Rarely do you see someone come in as a manager outside the company. RevLocal values people who understand the organization.

    Positive culture. The majority of people in the Granville office are happy to be at work.

    Amazingly flat org chart. Everyone goes by their first name, and you regularly see execs interacting with employees on the floor. You do not feel little when you start.

    Diverse growth path opportunities. RevLocal is invested in putting your best skills to work and making sure you're happy with your day-to-day. As long as you speak up and tell your leaders what you're interested in, they will help carve a path for you.

    Recognition of hard work and talent. This has been the driving reason for my dedication to RevLocal. Upper management is quick to recognize and reward those who put in the effort. Have patience, and trust that your efforts and talents will be reflected in your pay and your trajectory in the company.

    Cons

    Location. Granville is not the most convenient location if you're looking to live near downtown Columbus. Lots of people still make the drive though.

    Losing the small business feel. The growth has been fast and steady, but it's hard to know everyone who works in the company now.

    Advice to Management

    As we continue to grow, keep a pulse on the strategist and consultant to help understand what needs to change to make things better for employees and clients.

    I worked at RevLocal full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Met a lot of really smart people and have learned a lot about the industry overall. They really are the best choice for small business owners because the strategists work their tails off!

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive and the claims of bonuses, commission, and promotions are greatly exaggerated. There is very limited opportunity and you’ll quickly burn out because the strategists get so overloaded with plans that it’s impossible to perform your best. There’s so much potential that’s being wasted on outdated workplace policies. It’s strange since there are many companies aggressively recruiting Revlocal strategists.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the struggle many strategists have with the demands of the job and maintaining a good balance. Everyone understands the company needs to make money but having employees who don’t dread the start of the workweek is your best investment.

    I worked at RevLocal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Tremendous leadership- Team leads and RSMs always willing to help any way they can. Freedom in your work schedule. Your day was what you wanted to make of it. Team bonuses and individual bonuses.

    Very positive leadership even in the highest ranks. CEO seemed to get involved in a regular basis on sales calls.

    Cons

    Outside sales is not for everyone. It’s not easy and you have to be self motivated, able to handle A LOT of rejection, and confident.

    Can be lonely working by yourself a lot and feeling disconnected from the fun they seem to have in the home office. Team gatherings are nice, but it’s hard to feel like a team when you see them once or twice a month a month.

    The usage of your own vehicle is hard. A lot of miles are added to your car driving from business to business. No gas/vehicle maintainence compensation

    Pay structure can be confusing at times.
