I worked at Revel Consulting full-time (More than a year)
The consultants are overall really nice and smart
The pay is good; benefits are pretty good
A few of the managers and Sr managers are good
Some client roles are interesting
Starting to diversify client base, but it's slow
They don't seem to enforce non-compete
Firm is more focused on innovation and staying ahead of clients than most companies
Fairly flexible schedule depending on role
Leadership attrition is high
Consultant attrition is fairly high, but that's the nature of staffing/consulting
Many managers are not good or competent
No guarantees they will get you the next role
The business communities (service lines) are not where they should be; Transformation is huge and undefined. It's he staffing engine
Heavily dependent on Microsoft
The people in the office (HR, TA, etc.) are clicky and can be disingenuous
Advice to Management
Be honest about the communities, specifically Transformation. Keep investing in your people so they become more and more valuable. Stay selective with hiring. Don't pressure people to become Managers. Don't burn out current Managers.
I have been working at Revel Consulting full-time (More than a year)
Revel provides it's employees a great platform to learn, grow and succeed if you are willing to go after it. It's still a pretty small company and there isn't a lot of structure, so you have to be proactive to really make the most of the experience, but the culture and people are willing to help you grow and meet your goals.
Revel has a great family culture if you take the effort to get involved and know others within the company. Depending on your project you may be isolated away from leadership and most of the other employees, but there are many opportunities to get involved and get to know leadership (including the CEO) if you take the opportunity.
Although many of the projects are at Microsoft, Revel is building out it's client base in the Seattle area and the number of interesting opportunities should continue to improve.
Most of Revel's business is still focused on Microsoft so sometimes it can be hard to find interesting projects when you are switching roles. If you don't want to work at Microsoft, you may be subject to luck/timing if you're looking for something different.
Advice to Management
Keep building out your client base, and keep building a little more structure (not too much) to improve the people development process. Keep the culture fun and innovative (I know you will).
