    I worked at Revel for more than 4 years

    Pros

    You get a paycheck. That's it.

    Cons

    Glassdoor should look into this place to verify the 5-star reviews. I've heard from multiple people that internal management was put on a mission to deliver fraudulent 5-star reviews using made-up email addresses. If you work here, make it a plan to do so for a short period of time while you find your next opportunity. Honestly it's not a place for true professionals. You'd be better off taking an odd-job if you really...

    No advice will be taken seriously, people who work here are always suggesting improvements. Nothing changed while I was there for three years.

    I worked at Revel full-time

    Pros

    Consultants are professional and hard workers but turnover is high due to the way the company is structured and constantly changing their business model.

    Cons

    You're not paid your worth - pay is significantly below the Seattle salary average relative to other similar consulting firms. Management turnover is high. Constantly hiring for senior leadership roles and not investing in current consultant benefits is the norm. Sell, sell, sell is all you hear. There is no existing pipeline of work for you to role on to when you've completed a contract even though they boast they have...

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your consultants. Offer a better 401(k) match since you pay your consultants so poorly. Diversify your client portfolio to allow for consultants to grow cross-industry.

      I worked at Revel full-time

      Pros

      People are really nice and there are some cool things being done.

      Cons

      Check the employment deals before you start as most of the contracts are contingent based. They also reach out to a lot of people looking to see if they are wanting to leave, but do not have a job ready for them.

      Advice to Management

      Figure out what you want to be and do it. Are you a staff augmentation firm or are you a consulting company?

      I worked at Revel full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Amazing connectivity in ICT industries. Ambition to diversify outside of ICT. Solid Leadership at the top levels. CEO is making more investments in top leadership. Current CEO can not scale effectively without them. Solid Great benefits, including a full paid paternity/maternity leave.

      Cons

      Middle Management Leadership is inconsistent and quiet Pipeline of opportunities not made transparent to associates. While this intentional, I don't believe it should be this way. Especially after 18 months of successful project delivery. Let the associates who have earned it peek into the pipeline.

      Advice to Management

      Deepen your mid-management capacity building. Reward results as much as tenure. Never lose sight of meritocracy. Evaluate your bonus model for inconsistency and overlooking associates who contributed to new and incremental business revenue.

      Pros

      If you are good at what you do, knowledgeable, and client-centric, you will love Revel and succeed. Here are some benefits: - Paid family leave (8 weeks for paternity) - 15 days PTO - 8 days of Holiday + 2 flex days - Most clients are flexible meaning you can work from home a few days a week - You make Revel what you want it to be - If you go above and beyond, your salary will quickly increase - Opportunity...

      Cons

      - People who aren’t agile, can’t take feedback well, and don’t communicate well with clients will fail here. Revel keeps the top talent and has little patience for people who are rigid in their thinking.

      Advice to Management

      Hire top talent and carry more of a bench. The ondemand model is flawed and needs to be addressed as we lose on opportunities. Be careful of miss-hires, especially at the leadership level. They tend to have residual negative affect on the company from a culture and reputation standpoint.

      Pros

      I love the experience of being a Reveler - I've done consulting at a number of firms, and I think Revel has the best mix of client impact, culture, and internal intellectual culture. Clients love us - we dramatically improve their performance, period. Being here has upped my game as a professional and strategist immensely - I have learned so much from my very diverse consultants and operations colleagues. I am so excited...

      Cons

      As you can see from the mixed reviews, many people love it here and a few don't. Make sure you talk to current and former employees to triangulate whether you'll like it here. Revel is rapidly maturing in terms of HR and internal processes - it's wonderful to see the sincere effort being made to make things better for everyone.

      Advice to Management

      Thank you for making Revel such a thrilling place to work! Ensure expectations and norms are communicated and clarified with everyone - not everyone is a self-starter or rockstar, so communicating up front "what success/distinctive performance looks like" is critical.

      I would have to say there aren't any.

      Cons

      Beware! This company is as fraudulent and corrupted as they come. Don't expect a single thing you're promised, because the offer will sound awesome. It's not. This company is lies built on more lies, poorly managed, and losing money. What a fun combination! Oh and I've heard from multiple people that they falsify 5 star glass door reviews frequently to up their score (that's why I've finally decided to write an honest...

      Pros

      Fortunate to continually to be working with amazing people over my eight plus years here at Revel. Great place to work, learn and be challenged. It's definitely not a place for apathy, constantly moving and providing opportunities to learn and move the needle.

      Cons

      Must take initiative on career goals/path. I noticed that those who do best 'opt-in' to the available opportunities to build skills and experiences . Not for those that are passive as pace dictates ability to continually learn and be adaptable to change/transformation.

      Cons

      Working for any consulting company comes with the risk of ending up on the Bench. I was able to leverage one long term assignment into another and stayed off the bench during my entire tenure of with Revel. It is always best to keep in mind that you are ultimately your own best advocate for getting work and staying busy.
