    Pros

    Great flexibility that allows you to achieve results without a focus on hours in the office. Working from home is easy and encouraged.

    Cons

    Due to out of office work environment, newer employees may have a difficult time learning, adjusting, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create stronger development and training programs that assist new employees with a transition to Ryan. Otherwise, you will lose new employees that feel lost.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules. Work was not charge hour focused but just getting the work done. Not a lot of overtime like other public accounting firms. Team oriented so hopefully you get along with your team.

    Cons

    Relatively small office in LA. If you don't like your team there is a lot of politics to switching teams similar to most places.

    I worked at Ryan, LLC full-time

    Pros

    The use of myRyan is absolutely exceptional. This allows employees to work from any location, without the need to be in the office. Because Ryan is structured as a team environment, the use of myRyan is heavily dependent upon whether your manager wishes to use it for your team. Many teams do not use it often. Depending on which division you are in (sales and use, unclaimed property, etc), there will be opportunities for travel. There is no micro-managing - however, this is dependent upon your team. In my team, there was micro-managing. The firm offers a variety of free courses to further your knowledge via RyanNet.

    Cons

    Because of the use of myRyan, the business is driven by work performed and not hours worked. There have been numerous occasions where my manager would send me e-mails at 2am. Consequently, there is no work-life balance. Your experience at Ryan will be extremely dependent upon whose team you are in. Your success is dependent upon who is you team leader/manager. The benefits at the firm are not that great either: pay, bonus, health insurance. Because Ryan is a specialty tax firm, make sure this is the career you want to be in. The skills you acquire here will not transfer easily to another firm. I believe that unless you are in the Dallas HQ office, you will not enjoy your time here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you promote someone to a managerial position, make sure you give them all of the necessary training BEFORE they assume that position. Additionally, re-structure your training program for new hires. the on-boarding process was nonexistent. Lastly, understand your employee morale outside of the Dallas HQ. Don't put so much emphasis on random surveys that you make your employees fill out almost every month.

    I worked at Ryan, LLC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good management. Good people. Good company policies and procedures. They give you flexibility in your work schedule. Not a Big 4, but they're just as good without the daily overtime.

    Cons

    Not much. There will always be some office politics since people within the office have different personalities. Also, they recruit straight out of college like the Big 4s.. so there's a level of immaturity amongst those who are young.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance program. Executives are accessible to employees and receptive to suggestions. Employees are kept up-to-date with current developments within the firm and government laws and regulations that may affect the employees in general.

    Cons

    Copay on medical coverage, especially when seeing a specialist, is quite high. Vision and dental coverages could also be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider adding HMO to our healthcare coverage. Maybe the younger and healthier employees will prefer it since it is less expensive.
