    I worked at Revel Marketing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The hours are very flexible, you can work offsite if you want, and they provide free beer and allow you to drink on the job

    Cons

    Every project was a struggle. Poor scope control. Requirements were unclear or incomplete. Expectation that the employees will work additional hours to compensate for poor project management. Contracting for the company means that you may be paid less for a project if the project manager decides the agreed on amount was too high and they want to pay less after invoicing.

    Advice to Management

    Have a look at the average web developer salary for the area. Don't try to negotiate price after the invoice is sent. Hire a consultant to teach project managers proper scope control and project management. Learn to gather requirements for a project.

    I worked at Revel Marketing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are just starting out in the industry, and you do not have any other options to get your foot in the door, Revel may be what you need to get off the ground.

    Cons

    The seemingly cool culture around Revel is just lipstick on a pig. Having worked there for nearly two years I kept seeing the same patterns and behaviors repeated over and over again. Management is always over-promising functionality and delivery of projects, and employees are always the ones that are expected to sacrifice themselves with their evenings or weekends to correct managements mistakes.

    What is worse than the poor project management is the systematic mistreatment of employees. I have personally experienced verbally abusive screaming from Partner/CEO Jason Piasecki. Other tactics used on me have included shaming and guilt tripping after having asked for a raise, and again after putting in my notice to leave.

    Former Revel employees are often badmouthed after they go, and in some cases are continually harassed and made to feel unwelcome in their own town after leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Jason Piasecki is a hot-head who has no business managing anyone. If anyone suggests that Revel may not be what he thinks it is, he lashes out in anger like a child who needs his afternoon nap. He is a man with no honor, who will only stand by his word if it benefits him.

    This company will never break the cycle of mismanagement and abuse so long as he is in charge.
