    I worked at John Ryan full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work-life balance. When needed additional temp staff was added.

    Cons

    Work isn't too exciting. Management needs to change direction or listen to employees more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand your business to include vendors other than financial institutions.

    Pros

    Effective sales people who can sell a service of little value for lots of money.

    Cons

    Their big trade secret is that they don't have any secrets. The company has basically been headed down the toilet for some time. They sell a service for more money than it's worth and over time they're running out of new clients to hoodwink. They've run through most of the US and European banks and are now preying on banks in emerging markets that don't know them yet.

    I worked at John Ryan

    Pros

    I wish I could think of some good reasons to work there, but I can't. Other than the opportunity to travel internationally, there really isn't any.

    Cons

    The upper management has all been there 20+ years on average and they have no intention of letting anyone with new or competing ideas have any say. Poeple who are very smart in certain areas think they know everything in all areas, very misguided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't have any advice since I wouldn't be listened to anyway. If there was thing I would mention, it would be letting new blood have some say at the table.
