      A pathetic waste of one's life with no career upside.

      Pros

      To be fair, they have a decent looking office on fifth avenue in New York. HR staff are generally nice and helpful. Some colleagues are hard working and decent people. The company holds some nice parties.

      Cons

      The company has very low budget and very tight timelines of delivering product. It put emphasis on product delivery rather than product quality. The company do not have resources and man power to document their products so you are walking in a maze if you work there. Some of the employees spend their days spying on others and tattle tale rather than being cooperative and focus on their work. The management is arrogant and condones such unproductive behavior. They treat very capable employees like garbage and let them go in an annual ritual. The company pays symbolic bonus and boosts morale by handing out "awards" which mount to nothing in reality. The stock option package is so small that a 9 year old can figure out that it is not worth much EVEN IF the company does have a great IPO.

      Pros

      Reval has a very close knit team environment and is a great fun place to work and grow. It definitely fosters a great work-life balance. Since it has a small firm feel, there is definitely room for career growth if you know your 'thing'. And there is definitely great opportunities to learn on the job as the projects are usually new and interesting things coming up in Risk Management space.

      Cons

      Reval has great reserves of smart techies n smarter deal makers. It sure has a tremendous upside potential for growth as a firm, but one that has yet to be 'unlocked' !

      Reval Response

      It is great that you felt like part of a close knit team, and that you see Reval as a fun place to work. Reval works very hard in promoting a sustainable work/life balance for our employees. We try to provide many exciting career opportunities for our global staff as well. The fact that over 20% of our open positions in 2014 were filled internally by employees that came from all of the regions in which we operate is testament to our commitment to giving our employees international work experience. Because of our talented employees, we ended 2014 with record-breaking bookings, signaling tremendous growth ahead. We thank you for your contributions at Reval and are honored to have had you on our team.

      Great Place to be !!!

      Pros

      Very friendly place to work, management is caring, god growth opportunities, flexible with work/life balance. I have been with Reval for a few years and cannot consider moving elsewhere, I love my department and my management team. There is tons of knowledge to gain and resources are very knowledgeable and informative. The CEO and executive team are super friendly and very easy to approach. The company is constantly doing great things with improving itself to showcase as an industry leader. The client base continues to grow and all signs lead to fast growth and strong foundation.

      Cons

      401 benefits are not as appealing as your large companies (but the company has a great compensation plan to make up for it). Health benefits are a little expensive but that is not really the company doing, its more industry hikes.

      Good Analytics company for Corporate Treasuries

      Feb 16, 2011 -  in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Friendly Atmosphere Generally flexible and reasonable managers Many hard working, dedicated and smart employees. HedgeRX, especially its FAS133 functionality, is a respected product amongst Corporate Treasuries Reval Center, an "outsourcing" company for financial valuations has potential to grow

      Cons

      Certain groups such as the market data support group may not be the most fun job for most people Like anywhere else there are politics, but less politics here than most places Reval's products are not respected much, nor known outside of Corporate Treasuries Recent company purchases seem like an easy way to add customers, but it is always hard to build a cohesive company this way

      Business Outlook

      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).

      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.
