    I have been working at Reval full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I can say with confidence that Reval India is one of the best product based company in Delhi and I can say that with certainty based on comparison from several of my cousins and friends working in other companies. When I tell them about the culture and work of Reval, I clearly see them wanting to join Reval. It has such a great culture and open philosophy coming right from the top - one of the most effective and unique leadership provided by India leadership. The India head himself is a humble and down to earth leader who can inspire people around him to deliver their best.I could not believe how he transpired events like bugathon where people worked tirelessly. People in this company are absolutely awesome and have a desire to grow and prosper. It’s a very young and vibrant company and the energy and level of enthusiasm is contagious. The office is very modern and luxurious, ample of facilities are provided like cab, lunch, fitness sessions etc. The work we do is complex and difficult but gives ample of satisfaction and people love taking challenges. All in all very difficult to find a better company other than Google may be. If you join Reval you will never be able to leave it because it’s impossible to find a better company, better friends, better work culture and overall fun yet commited atmosphere.

    Cons

    I feel that because most of the employees are young and joined Reval as their first job, they dont realize the importance of continous learning and expect a lot from management. I have seen people cribbing about things/manager for no apparent reason as well. Anyways, I think all of us will benefit from organizing various materials and creating a more structured functional and technical learning programs.

    Advice to Management

    Reval is all about energy, friendly atmosphere and desire to excel. I see a burst of positivity in the company and I would request the India leadership to keep up their spirit. Reval is a great company because of your leadership so please keep doing the good work and inspiring us.

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

    Pros

    - getting paid for doing nothing except gossiping in the office.
    - free food

    Cons

    - Reval is a graveyard of employees who have no career left and are unable to find employment else where, hence enjoy the retirement paradise.

    - sycophancy is valued over merit and hard work

    - Very toxic work environment.

    - HR tries to hide the actual image of the company by flooding employment website via fake accounts

    Advice to Management

    high time you realize that its not your personal fiefdom. A good employee shouldnt be forced to socialize with the senior mgt to further their career prospects. Merit should be recognized over sycophancy.

    Pros

    -> No work, so full time enjoy

    ->Relaxed culture, even no one will ask what you are doing because CEO believes in this methodology and hence duly following..

    Cons

    -> To ION people, please open your eyes.
    -> Back office for the sake of saving their job has forgotten Reval employees. With no mind and knowledge they are just making people fool by maintaining their fake facials before ION team.
    ->Managers, get some work. Salary hikes are not what which knowldgeable people are looking for.
    -> HR, this time please at least do some work instead of doing modelling and parties.

    I have been working at Reval full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Used be FEW, before it was acquired by ION!
    Post acquisition, None!

    (There is a difference in between ‘A Few’ and ‘Few’)

    Cons

    Plenty!

    However, to summarise:

    Headcount at India Office was 120+ at the time of acquisition, and now the number is less than 75!
    And mainly, all the incompetents, from Leads and above, are not the ones who have left or are being asked to leave!

    Advice to Management

    Advice to ION management, and Reval NY Leadership:
    Do thorough Analysis on how the Managers and Above in India office are determined for the downfall of India Office!
    (Except Senior Principal Developer/Manager who is responsible for Production support, and a few UI Development Managers)

    Please circulate anonymous surveys to all the employees in India Office for their feedback of every Lead, Manager, Senior Manager, Director, SVP. (Basically, leads/leadership of all departments, including HR)

    If you ask the right questions in that survey and ensure the anonymity of the people taking it, you’ll thank me for the next 100 years for this advice!

    "Not suitable for whiny crybabies"

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

    Pros

    The following pros are only relevant if you are NOT a pathetic, whiny crybaby

    People listen to ideas. You have to be responsible for them, and have to push them to fruition. If that is done, even top management in NY listens to your ideas. However, if you are a whiny crybaby and dgaf about selling your ideas upward, then nothing will happen, so cry me a river.

    The compensation isn't the best in the planet, but its better than many of the offshore/outsourcing Silos that litter the nation.

    The only thing close to "politics" is establishing your personal brand. To the whiny crbybabies, if you consider this to be "political", the hard slap of reality awaits you at every turn of your life, in every other company, in every corner of the globe, and you will be sad forever.

    Cons

    There are some genuine concerns about gossipping and too much attention being paid by management to idiotic "extra co-curricular" bs.

    The most senior management, perhaps due to good reason, doesnt' seem inclined to invest resources in proper processes, especially technological processes. They also seem to believe in "magic wands" and unrealistic schedules.

    The management in India needs to present their side of the story to NY better. They need to stand up for their employees. Sometimes, one gets the feeling that management in India can feed those lower in the hierarchy to the lions. This is probably untrue, but the perception is real.

    Advice to Management

    1. Stand up for your employees

    2. Make sure there is REAL recognition instead of giving "awards" on rotation. Especially, recognize people who perform "quiet" service. Stop rewarding people for their "personalities".

    3. Give people a reason to want to outperform others. If someone thinks they don't stand to gain anything by working harder than the next guy, they won't.
