    I worked at Reval full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1. Mostly positive vibe and professional environment.
    2. Management was interested in developing young talent
    3. Mostly good people to work with

    Cons

    There was a disconnect between senior management and lower tiered managers. Senior managers were well-intentioned to develop young talent, but often, a filter existed between senior managers and the young talent that left the effectiveness of the decisions to junior managers (who a mostly well-intentioned as well).

    Advice to Management

    Given that it's been so long, my hope is that the disconnect has changed.
    Ill-intentioned junior managers (however few) can deter talent and lead to ineffective implementation of business plan.

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

    Pros

    Some good colleagues, enjoy working with clients. Interesting industry and a variety of work.

    Positive reviews here are usually written by the HR department.

    Cons

    Product is pretty crappy, leading to disappointed clients. Sick of the stress trying to please clients who have high expectations after being over-sold a below average product.

    Lots of people, but not much really useful gets done.

    Advice to Management

    We don't need so many staff, we need to focus on finishing the product.

    I have been working at Reval full-time

    Pros

    The people make Reval a great place to work. Across all teams and all departments, the people make coming to Reval everyday enjoyable. Nice, helpful, team-oriented people on board to help you be a success at your job.

    Cons

    Alot of work and not enough bodies. Management really wants to engage employees, but have a hard time executing. Workload causes a lot of stress on people. Impacts their work and personal lives. If you accept a job at Reval, know that you will do the work of many.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to retain your talent.

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

    Pros

    I have been working at Reval for almost 2 years and it is refreshing to work for a company that actually cares about its employees. We have work from home options, no set working hours as long as you get your work done and we also have summer Fridays and pizza mondays.

    I actually enjoy coming to work everyday!

    Cons

    I do not have any complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, thank you for caring about your employees.

    Pros

    Able to work at own pace, intramural sports teams and outside of office interactions promoted. Great team and non stop learning culture. Senior management is very transparent

    Cons

    Hard to think of con, but perhaps the challenge of keeping up with the product updates.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a focus on the employees and moral, its an important piece of the puzzle.

    Pros

    Reval is constantly changing and there is never a dull moment. The day to day doesn't have a draining effect on my psyche like some other jobs I've had. Managers are supportive and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Workload is heavy. There tends to be too much to do all and not enough manpower to get it done. On the plus side, people are friendly, knowledgeable, and will offer to help.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees to strengthen the one team!
