    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 worked at Reval full-time

    Pros

    Need not to work and still get the salary

    Cons

    The management at the India office has screwed up the whole intentions of the company. Presently what they are doing is just fraud, supporting worthless people as they have spend ages buttering the senior mangement. The work is horrible your career would be in a mess for sure you would not be able to find another job. The India office have even prepared false cases to get the paperwork done for GC processing.
    In all India office is in mess. Management organising their onsite trips so that they can align those with family holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Dont play with career of people.

    Pros

    Employees are generally happy working for Reval - the company has been growing and the culture is positive and supportive.

    Cons

    Reval has just agreed to be acquired by Ion Trading and their GlassDoor ratings are horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Hope the acquiror is paying attention. Reval is clearly doing something better than Ion is doing it from an employee perspective. You would do well to spend time trying to understand what's working and then endeavor to make sure you don't kill it.

    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.
