      UNFAIR DISMISSAL

      Pros

      Flexible working hours from home

      Cons

      I was dismissed for no reason. Submitted a project, went to bed. Got up early morning as usual for work, tried to login and my account was deactivated. Just like that. They have a stinking rule of not entertaining questions about deactivation. I followed up for weeks, to this day I don't know why I was dismissed. I was top-earning level and at their grader level already. So I have nothing to say about them really. As long as you freelance under their company, they'll treat you as they please and wake up one morning and decide they no longer want to keep you, not even AT LEAST email you a reason.

      Not great for marketing professionals

      1 Jun 2021 - Marketing Manager in Austin, TX

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good product, mission, and perks.

      Cons

      Marketing & sales are an afterthought, and leadership treats them as such. If you are looking for career growth in these departments, there are much better companies in Austin to pursue ahead of Rev. It is also very much a boy's club, which heavily influences how and when promotions happen, unfortunately.

      Not worth your time or energy

      27 May 2021 - Freelancer 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Paid weekly, work as little or as much as you want

      Cons

      You can caption 99.99% accurately but they will grade you on the .01% of missing a comma or something so minuscule that they will ultimately lock your account out. This is a common occurrence and they do it with out warning. You can dispute the grade and they will say they are right and you can’t do anything about it. The pay is a joke, you’ve better off doing literally anything else with your time.
