    I am a 'lifer' at Ryan. I can't imagine working anywhere else and having such an entrepreneurial opportunity.

    I have been working at Ryan, LLC full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule is fantastic. I truly do have the freedom to work wherever I want and whenever I want as long as my work gets done. For those in service delivery, there is no limit as to what you can make. Bonuses are not capped out which is great for those projects resulting in significant savings and a significant fee.

    Cons

    The struggles we are facing as an organization relate to high growth in a short period of time. The infrastructure has to grow quickly to support the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! myRyan has changed the company for the better and allowed many to spend quality time with their family while still getting their work done.

    Pros

    Ryan LLC offers a flexible work environment which empowers employees to be in control of their work hours, work location and personal committments. Everybody has the potential to earn above-market compensation. Assignment of professionals to teams results in pro-active efforts to generate value for the firm's clients and a sharing of skills, knowledge and friendship among team members.

    In-house technical training is not only excellent but also better than what I experienced in working at a big 4 accounting firm. The training provides in-depth technical education and practical skills on how to perform and document tax recovery reviews.

    Cons

    I do not have any cons to note.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing to recommend

    Pros

    I enjoy the Firm's bonus structure that compensates people who work hard and bring value to the firm. The flexability Ryan give through the myRyan program is unmatched.

    Cons

    Can be stressfull at times. Would love to have a Christmas bonus. Wish partners would be more proactive instead of reactive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to have management be more transparent about what is going on. They are doing an execellent job though navigating the direction of the Firm.

    Pros

    The best decision Ryan ever made was to implement the "myRyan" work structure. Managers and employees have the flexibility to work without physically being in the office provided it does not impede client service. This environment allows for a much better work/life balance. Our bonus system also incentivizes teams to flight for our clients because a portion of employee compensation is directly tied to the refunds/fees we generate.

    Cons

    While out bonus structure is one of our greatest strengths, it can also sometimes be a source of friction between teams. Many employees have left our firm over the years because they are working just as hard as other successful teams, but their projects are just not generating the expected fees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think all employees would like the opportunity to purchase stock in the company or earmark a certain percentage of monthly pay that would go towards equity investment. This is something that was discussed in at our Firm meeting in March 2012. I believe our management team is still looking into it.

    Pros

    There is no micro-managing; trust is apparent in the Firm; many free courses in the realm of business and bettering oneself are available via RyanNet (the Firm's intranet); always recognized and appreciated for stellar work and the carte blanche to work from home!

    Cons

    On "Casual - Charitable Friday's" you must pay $5.00 (or more, depending). In the oil and gas industry it's $2.00 and at other property tax firms it's free.

    Pros

    This company is flexible health conscious and willing to help, yet one must still work hard and can be proud of their accomplishments. The work environment is great and everyone gets along. Substantial sick and paid time off days are given.

    Cons

    Like with most tax practices, there are periods when one has time to complete tasks and times when one is completley overwhelmed with work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to incorporate tuition reinbursment.
