They have lots of great awards and deliver great Hubspot solutions.
My wife read the reviews of this place and warned me not to take the job. The first major red flag was when the CEO was taking a bottle of alcohol into his office at 2 PM *and lots of day drinking besides that). They also don't practice what they preach. For example, they encourage your to jump in and not worry about making a mistake. However, if you make a mistake, they go out of their way to make you feel like you cannot make any mistakes. Many people there don't follow the Franklin Covey training they have everyone participate in. The reason is the management themselves use the teachings as a way to get you to accept their shortcomings. The CEO abuses the "be understanding" principle and is frequently yelling, swearing at inappropriate times, and doesn't practice what he preaches. And don't ask for feedback or help - this place has a high turnover for a reason. They accused me of being dishonest. but they were merely projecting their own failure as a management team. The CEO told me no ever quit or was fired until last 2020, but after I started I learned people have been quitting in drives for at least 2 years, and more so with the new COO.7

Working at a successful, rapidly growing agency like Revenue River requires some uncomfortable changes to your lifestyle, that if you are willing to accept will make you a better person. Revenue River lives and breaths the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The onboarding process is well-designed and always being improved upon to help you adopt the 7 habits and grow as an individual. I've never worked at a company that truly had a work culture successfully implemented. After working here only 6 months, I feel like some of these lifestyle changes have helped enable me to be more successful anywhere I go. Some of the most important highlights: - Calendaring for success, schedule the big rocks - Transparency - thinking win / win - say do mentality - setting goals and achieving them
We are on the cutting edge of technology, so don't expect to be comfortable in your job role. No matter what the position is here processes and technology are always changing to improve!3

It's a great stepping stone anyone who is young and inexperienced in the industry. You will have a great introduction to fast paced agency life as well as the ability to learn different skills in a short amount of time.
First and foremost - the CEO is a salesman, and he's good at it. That is 100% the only reason they got the success they had, and still manage to stay afloat today. He talks unsuspecting clients into bogus projects for a grab bag of dollar amounts, and sells this idealistic career opportunity to solid employees who bust their butts for a future that will never happen. I truly empathize with them. As an employee - expect to be grossly underpaid and overworked. Expect a very convincing "I truly feel we have the players and the strategy to get us to the next level" speech every 3 months when he changes the entire structure before the last one even takes hold. The 'leadership' team is quite young, and will not be leaving anytime soon - many are very under-qualified and it shows. They are there simply because they were there in the beginning and nothing more. I get it, on paper, this place seems like a dream. I thought the same, and so did the other 30 employees that left in the last 14 months. Oh – and all these 5 star reviews are from the leadership team to offset real ones.15

-Leadership practices what they preach. The Managing Partner is often the first and last to leave the office, inspirational, and leads by examples most the time. Others follow in similar foot steps. -The no boundaries and experimentation attitude makes it easy for people to have the creative freedom to try new things and be really innovative. -The team is fun to work with, great at supporting one another, and if I had to go to battle, I know there would be an army to support me. -The drive to deliver for the client is immense. You’d be fortunate, as client, to work with this team. -The company invests a lot in their people and if you’d like a company who puts people first, this is it. You’ll get a ton of training and education that’s principle based and also skill based. -The company has adjusted extremely well to a more remote world -Last but not least, the company is very transparent. If you like working in a place where you know how your directly impacting the company growth, you’ll find that here. Transparency is key.
-There are some growing pains, but I have confidence the company will navigate through them. -Some legacy paradigms could use challenging, but I think leadership is receptive to the change.1

Awesome and talented co-workers at every department. Agency is dog-friendly, provides snacks, beverages, and good times to be had. Positive attitudes all-around. Opportunities for professional growth and advancement. Provides high-quality tools, training, and many other helpful resources so that you are set up for success. Great onboarding experience. You get productive time with the CEO on a weekly basis during this process. The leadership team engages with all their employees, not just among themselves. The key is to communicate at this agency, don't be afraid to reach out to anyone in leadership (or fellow co-workers)!
There's always room for improvement, as it only allows for more growth. Not much of a "con", but Revenue River is only going to continue growing. Be ready to adapt and ask questions to help you navigate onwards and upwards.2

Dogs in office Nothing else really
You have to use your own equipment if you are working from home. Everything is about making more money for the agency. Not actually doing what would be best for the client sometimes. Kind of a "bro" culture. If you aren't in the "in crowd" you'll be excluded. Everything is so regimented and has a cult like feeling. It's either "buy into our system, or you won't fit in". They literally say something similar to that in the videos they make you watch during onboarding. Long time before you're eligible for health insurance. Hope you don't get in an accident or have prescriptions that are expensive! You might find some reviews here that mention the CEO calling former employees "cancerous", and you'll see that they responded to these claims saying they were false. I literally heard that exact word used at least a couple times in the first week.13

As an employee who has worked at Revenue a River for several years, I feel the need to set the record straight on a few things. First, this is a great place to work for the right type of person. What I mean by the right type of person is someone who values hard work, likes to think outside the box, likes to solve problems, values honesty and integrity, and looks at challenges as opportunities. Revenue River has worked really hard to maintain an awesome culture even through a pandemic that forced office closures and required them to find new ways to stay connected. There have been many changes over the years but one thing has remained constant, the desire to continually get better. The management team has always valued feedback and implements changes using that feedback. One example is the additional trainings being offered to employees to ensure they are set up for success in their roles. Another example is the addition of a matching retirement plan. Yet another example is the changes that were made to the PTO policy. All of these were put into place this year based on feedback from current and former employees. Second, Glassdoor reviews are only as valuable as the integrity of the individual who is writing them. I have seen many negative reviews on this site from former employees or supposed “current employees” that are flat out dishonest. Based on the information provided in the reviews you can tell they are from employees who were fired. I also want to be very clear that to get fired from this Agency you have to have really earned it . The management works very hard to come along side employees who are struggling and help them succeed. Providing coaching and guidance far beyond any where else I have worked. If you respond to the coaching and improve you are better for it. Lastly, I would like to stick up for the CEO, who has been unfairly attacked in some of the dishonest reviews from former employees. Shocking that someone who gets fired doesn’t like the company or person who fired them even if the firing was completely justified. The CEO is a passionate leader who values his employees. He leads by example holding himself and his employees to high standards. He is the first one in the office and the last one to leave almost everyday. He is direct and does not sugar coat things but he is honest and truly does care about his employees. I have witnessed him go above and beyond to help out employees who are having personal issues or medical issues, even when those issues are impacting their performance. Offering help and extending grace when others in his position would not. He tries to catch people doing good and publicly recognizes the achievements of his employees on a regular basis.
There have been a lot of changes this year. While change can be hard at times it is inevitable in this business. Agency life isn’t for everyone but it is exciting for the right people.4

- Professional/Personal Development Coaching - Career Growth Opportunities - Clear, genuine care for the employees - Lots of support with client management - Fun office environment
- Nothing is sacred, so the internal processes do update often but I would not consider this a con. There is a lot of opportunity to have your voice heard if you feel there is a better way to accomplish a goal.1
