    Pros

    This place is the only agency in NJ that does the same caliber of work that you can find in the city. Many of us have worked the most prestigious agencies in the world. We have brought that talent here and continue to do the same level of work, for the same level of brands. We are doing 360 campaigns with TVC, digital video, social, experiential, etc. We are at the table with the largest agencies in the world collaborating, many times as the lead agency. And we do all this with no bus, train, crazy 2 hour commute into Manhattan. The big difference between us and Manhattan? Work, life balance. We have it. Virtual Fridays, flexible work schedules and an understanding that everyone has a family and a life outside of the office.

    Cons

    We work hard. Very hard. Our work is judged at a different level because we have to prove ourselves to each new client. We don't have the big agency name to hide behind.

    Pros

    Summer Fridays!! Great brands. Really smart and friendly people. Zero divas. Management team is incredibly down to earth and understands work/life balance.

    Cons

    Last minute client requests that come out of nowhere and shake things up. We are small so we are very busy. Seems like the same people always get to work on pitches.

    I have been working at Revolution Digital full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great space & location. A handful of friendly, hard-working people. WFH Fridays. Free bagels on Mondays. Happy Hours and such.

    Cons

    *Layoffs: Like the previous reviewer said, there's no security which means you spend every day wondering who is next to go with no notice whatsoever. *Rotten from the top: The leadership team is a joke. Not only is there a complete lack of transparency with the staff as a whole, but the favoritism is abysmal. Keeping those who they are closest to at their hips, while keeping opportunity away from/letting go of those who are actually dedicated and talented. *CCO: Well... I mean... Yea... Just take my word. *No upward mobility

    Pros

    Great town to work in. Easy access to NYC. Virtual days. Great working environment and friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    No upward mobility. Lack of transparency. Very cliquey. Unfortunately, leadership is a joke. The owner of the company is extremely moody and can’t even be bothered with. The CCO walks around with a chip on his shoulder, and has no clue how to run a department. The CFO is completely useless and makes people feel uncomfortable.

    Pros

    Great location, great space, decent benefits.

    Cons

    Upper management disconnect, lack of new business over time, compulsive hire and fire mentality instead of hiring a lean mean group that can handle the busy and ride out the slow...they hire furiously when they think it may be busy and get rid of great people as soon as something changes. There is no balance and no security which means you spend every day wondering who is next to go with no notice whatsoever. No transparency from management and the owner is never present unless he is making an announcement of some sort.

    Pros

    Where do I start? This place is awesome because of its people! I've worked with many agencies, including in NYC, and Rev-D is pure talent and all heart without ego. The culture and emphasis on balance is real. The family / supportive vibe is real. You get to work on big brands, and there's increasing opportunity to try your hand at something new. The agency is really starting to make a name for itself outside of NYC, and it's great to be a part of that.

    Cons

    If you don't take initiative and are unable to voice your ideas, this place may not be the right fit.

    I worked at Revolution Digital full-time

    Pros

    Great work life balance, frequent team outings, modern office, bagel Mondays, cool brands, and nice work station. You also get to work on different types of projects each week, which makes the work more exciting. The tech team is hilarious, and keeps the energy flowing through a quiet office. They also do nice celebrations for people who are getting married, having a baby, etc.

    Cons

    Read the past reviews. Unfortunately, they were pretty spot on. I went in with high hopes. Very cliquey, lots of drama, favoritism is clear, and employees regularly talk about each other behind their backs. Management is willing to throw you under the bus for any reason they please, instilling an overall sense of fear that you might be next. There was actually a running joke that new employees never stay -- that should say something. Overall, if you do not fit in, you probably won't last. To be fair, there are some genuinely talented, kind, and hardworking people who make the days a little better, but they get drowned out by the office culture. Surround yourself with the right people, and you might actually learn something.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Revolution Digital

    Pros

    Summer Friday's, great work life balance, awesome office atmosphere in a good location. Family run business with excellent creative/copy talent

    Cons

    A seemingly bunch of great people and awesome NYC talent in the burbs, but don't let them fool you. As a small "wannabe" NYC agency, the lack of process and procedures illustrates that they will never hack it amongst the competition. They have a pretty decent array of clients, but will throw their own employees under the bus. In total agreement with the previous post - you'd be lucky if the President says good morning to you. There's the managing of personalities and favorites as with any agency atmosphere, but for the most all you will find are fake, untrustworthy, backstabbing, "clicky," folks. Steer clear no matter how much they try to sell it to you!
