    Pros

    Smaller company. Easy to navigate and reach out directly to others within the company, including senior leadership. Regular development offerings such as Foundry for ongoing development, if you choose to opt-in.

    Cons

    Diversity of the the client portfolio can be limited. This is growing and evolving however.

    Pros

    I had worked with Revel for 7 months prior to joining the firm. I had heard great things on the outside but nothing like the immersive experience of being a full time consultant the past 4 months. This company is truly phenomenal, strong and inspiring leadership making big strategic moves in the Seattle market and abroad. I will be with this company for the distant future as they value me as a person, professional and provide opportunities to grow and build the firm.

    Cons

    Typical growing pains of any growing successful company- no one has enough bandwidth. HOWEVER Revel empowers employees to take ownership and drive solutions internally. This company is made of those who really drove projects they were passionate about because of the gaps they saw.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing- driving vision, and not sacrificing what Revel has built along the way. I am very happy here.

    Pros

    Nice people in the field.

    Cons

    The Foundry (office) can't be trusted. They bait and switch on the benefits and concept of paying bench 50%. Be careful - the folks in the field are great but leadership is shady.

    Advice to Management

    Provide nice laptops, at least to those in technology. The ones you are providing are so old -- downright shameful.

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

    Pros

    - Smart people, there are for the most part a number of extremely talented folks working here. I do not think the company necessarily does a fantastic job of putting in the right places or in a position to succeed, but the talent is there.
    - Good pay
    - They are willing to give opportunities to people from different backgrounds. I was one of these hires. I appreciate the opportunity.

    Cons

    - Basically another run of the mill body shop consulting company in the Seattle are trying to be something more. Unfortunately I do not think they are succeeding.
    - High turnover. I left the company last year and almost everybody that I knew or worked with there is now gone.
    - This could have just been my client, so my experience may not be indicative as a whole but the sales/leadership team really did not do a great job of building a portfolio or expertise within the company.
    - As I mentioned before, there are a lot of talented people who are put in the wrong spots. Revel is a small company trying to grow and as a result has rushed to put people in spots they may not be ready for. This is from the top down. As a result a majority if the newer employees are mismanaged and given no direction to succeed and grow as an individual. You are pretty much left to your own devices to figure things out at the client site.
    - No true technology expects at the company. Company is trying to be more of a marketing/strategy company. No real technology talent here. Stay away if you want to be a technology expert.
    - There is a clear "in" crowd. You do your part to be in that crowd, you reap the rewards.
    - Unprofessional upper management. Sorry, but I do not really care to see my upper level managers going out and buying bottles at night clubs. I want to see them actively trying to grow talent and grow the company. I've seen your sales pitches and materials and even to a low level employee like myself, they seem woefully underwhelming.

    Advice to Management

    I think company has the talent in house to succeed. However, focus more on developing that talent and do not just pay lip service to caring. It seems my experience of being thrown on a project and left there on my own is not an uncommon one. Occasional meetings with management that clearly has no experience to warrant being there (I felt like I had 10x more experience doing what I was doing than my "manager") or occasional after work sessions do not count as talent development. I understand that you need to stack the Glassdoor deck (ie kindly nudge current employees to write positive reviews) in order to attract talent, but the feeling as a former employee is that management cares more about that than actually keeping the current employees engaged and happy.

    Pros

    Best culture I have experienced. The talent acquisition team is very professional and the managers are reliable and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    More clients would be very beneficial, but we have recently expanded the BD department and expect many more clients by EOY.

    Pros

    Leadership has a clear grasp on the direction of the firm. There's a constant focus on quality - just when you think perfection is achieved the quality bar is raised. Keeps the fire alive.

    Cons

    Would like to see more communication around lines of business. For those connected to HQ this flow of information is organic.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused and continue trusting in the vision. Clients and associates are loyal to this organization and the value it creates everyday.

    Pros

    Reasonable pay and good medical benefits.

    Cons

    Your just another number. Don't expect them to find you another role when your contract ends. No vacation pay or matching 401K.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that those that work for you are people not just another number.
