Anybody feel burned out by the politics of PA? Particularly around YE/performance evaluations, local partners are so brazen about their favoritism, it makes me wonder if normal people really have a chance in this gig. Back-stabby, fake and usurious co-workers revel in their job satisfaction, while the exodus of talented, good-natured people deepens.EY PwC KPMG Deloitte Grant Thornton RSM BDO

    More style than substance

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Most Revelers' hearts are in the right place; leaders profess a desire to be a different kind of consulting firm -- a tall order, particularly in the staff aug-dominated Seattle market. The office is beautiful (though lacking in some basic amenities) and speaks to the firm's desire to attract high-quality talent and clients. Pay is competitive, and depending on the project, work hours are flexible.

    Cons

    Revel is torn between its roots in staff augmentation and desire to be a true management consulting firm, resulting in mixed incentive structures and unclear messages. The CEO has failed to build out his leadership and management teams with seasoned talent, which leads to frequent changes of direction and associates left in the field with little support. The path to advancement is subjective, more dependent on the associate's relationship with senior leaders than his/her track record, and does not occur on a regular cadence. Recently, Revel has begun moving some consultants to project contingent status (that is, no paid bench time), without communicating what the policy is and to whom it applies. This has created an environment of intense anxiety, as people no longer know if they will be paid if their project comes to an end. Meanwhile, the non-revenue-generating back office functions have ballooned, creating an enormous cost center with little demonstrated added value. Revel says it wants to break the mold, but first it needs to master the core competencies of a professional services firm.

    Revel puts humans at the center of digital

    Sep 16, 2016 -

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Seeing the transformation over my time at Revel, I find myself always coming back to the great feeling of knowing that not only does the firm believe in staying innovative, but also that any movement they make does not stray the focus of keeping people at the center. 'Human-centered' is such a buzz word in the industry, but Revel truly lives out this principal and makes it more than just words, but tangible action. The human-centered way can be seen through the way associate's personal passion are emphasized just as much as their professional experience, with the idea that when you allow people to do what they love, amazing work is translated to the client. This deep philosophy not only provides associate satisfaction, but also seems to engage clients in a deeper way and build external relationships just as deep as internal. The community operating model also picks up this human-centered approach as the culmination of each community is centered around diverse expertise both in and out of the Revel walls. There truly are no barriers to the level of people mattering. Recently, Revel hosted a Town Hall event to celebrate the firm's 10-year anniversary and welcome the full staff into the new downtown Seattle HQ. There was also a huge tribute to the employees who helped get us there. It is pretty cool when, after a video montage of the firms history, the CEO turns to the audience and does a toast to everyone for being the reason the firm is celebrating the past ten years. There was never once talk of one person or luck of the market, rather he truly contributed the firms success to the passionate and talented people that work here. It is moments like this where a digital consulting firm can recognize successes from the humans at the center of organization and mean every word of it that makes me proud to have chosen Revel as the place to grow my career.

    Cons

    As any maturing firm experiences, growing pains are to be expected. Over the years the firm has grown quickly, and it has called for a mindset shift and willingness to be excited for the ambiguous ride. Everyone is different, but I made the decision to sit back and hang on to watch where this amazing place will go, and I have not wanted to get off yet!

    Great Consultants, Mangement True-up Needed

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great co-workers (Associates), Good compensation and benefits package, great business model for experienced consultants to apply their skills without overhead and corp bs, interesting project work with leading software client

    Cons

    Not really a 'consulting firm' but staff augmentation/out placement for experienced consultants, junior consulants don't have access to training, limited career development (which is good if you just want to do your job - consulting), management acts like one of the big-boys but doesn't deliver big projects.
