    Pros

    Team environment, younger company, good corporate structure, and we also get all the resources needed to be effective at our jobs.

    Cons

    The work can be boring and not very challenging at some points. Hard to make good bonuses if your team isn't assigned the good projects.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to have more one on one time with the lower level employees. It would really help career develpoment.

    I worked at Ryan, LLC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company in many ways.

    Cons

    If you hit the Red line or salary cap for your position, you will never get a raise again. No cost of living, no bonuses, nothing! You can beg and beg for years and I did beg and beg for years. They will not create a position for the Administrative staff to move you out of the red line salary cap. Most Admins do things for the office and not just the team and should be Office Administrators. Stayed at the same salary for years and just couldn't do it anymore. You hear about the "revenue makers' making goo gobs of money. Even though the team admins are supposed to be a part of the revenue benchmark they are not compensated with bonuses even though they work on client projects. You go to firm meetings and hear about how rich everyone else is and they wont change the redline policy for the admin staff. I couldn't stand it anymore. The health insurance is expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate your redline policy!

    I worked at Ryan, LLC full-time

    Pros

    Solid Company, Not going away. National presence. Allows for self directed management. Pay is competitive. Leader in various tax realms.

    Cons

    Large company requiring most all significant decisions to be decided by a few creating significant bottlenecks company wide. Policy set in place by leadership tends to stifle the progress of the worker bees.

    Advice to Management

    Distribute decision making abilities further down the food chain giving all employees equal access to success. Empower lower level with decision making power.

    I have been working at Ryan, LLC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    World class services give us the edge going to market. We are redefining how corp. tax services are provided. We have a completely flexible work environment and is results based on performance toward preset goals. Work life balance is REAL at Ryan. You are accountable to your goals and superior results.

    Cons

    The rules don't always apply to everyone and there are no bones made about this, it's a fact of life at Ryan. To get to 1 Billion, rules should be applied universally. Generally speaking there is a lower than market starting base salary.

    Advice to Management

    Account ownership rules need to universally be applied to all principals and service professionals alike and in all markets (including Canada!) Long term Ryan Principals are sitting on dormant prospects which are potentially large clients. This inactivity holds us all back. We are talking multiple years plus that they are sitting on accounts. We should have reasonable guidelines in place. They need to know the clock is ticking on their (in)activity and progress levels. Competition is healthy for everyone.

    Pros

    There is a relatively flexible work environment, but don't be dooped by recruitin. You're going to have to put in some major hours, especially at the onset. Additionally, the benefits and base pay are pretty good, but not industry leaders by any stretch of the imagination.

    Cons

    I used to love this company. I was so proud to work here. Now I just feel completely disillusioned about the future. We made it to Fortunes top companies, but I bet it's just a flash in the pan. The company is only focused on revenue. Client satisfaction and leadership are going down the drain. The principal group is a joke. All they care about are selling new projects, not reviewing or teaching. The CEO is a hypocrit. He preaches that we should see clients at least every 6 months, but I'm on some of his active accounts he hasn't visited in years, and not for a lack of trying to get him there. There is a very strong do as I say and not as I do attitude among senior management. Staff is just cranking out projects to try and meet ridiculous benchmarks and screw ups are happening over and over. I don't expect I'll be here much longer, and I don't anticipate I'll work with Ryan after I leave.

    Advice to Management

    Scratch it and start over. The model doesn't work anymore. The team structure doesn't work anymore. The old dogs sitting on clients and road blocking your bright, enthusiastic principals doesn't work anymore. The BD guys selling projects for the sake of selling (ie. Sales tax reviews for mall kiosks) doesn't work anymore

    Pros

    MyRyan - you can work anywhere

    Cons

    In order to reach income goals you will need to work almost all the time. There really is no work to life balance at this company. The higher you go up the chain of management, the more work you need to put in as your base is incredibly low. Your commissions can be quite lucrative if you get on the right teams and are able to support yourself on the very low base salary while awaiting for payouts that can sometimes take 3 or more years to come.

    Pros

    Company has structured policies and processes, promotes CEs.

    Cons

    Be wary. Not the best place to work . Professional growth is in a "controlled environment". Award winning company's are not all that!

    Work-Life flexibility, two promotion cycles a year, community outreach, personal investment, professionalism, accredited with awards, a lot of opportunity to advance, bonus opportunities, recognition, high standards, opportunity to experience several different service lines of tax, excellent workplace culture

    Allow your teams to speak with clients on a more regular basis, invest in your people knowledge and face-time wise

    Pros

    Ryan is a great company to work for. There are lots of opportunities to make substantial commission unless you are in corporate. Personally, I work in a remote office from the head quarter and I enjoy working with management. I try to volunteer as much as I can but those opportunities are limited.

    Cons

    The expectations of management are very high. The problem is, there are some staff who don't have enough work while others have too much. I support alot of users. This affects my quality of work, response time and availability which will ultimately affect my bonus due to clients' surveys.

    Advice to Management

    My advise to management is: 1) Listen to your staff and provide additional resources as required. Losing a strong talent will cost more to replace. 2) Over working an employee will cause the him/her to not use their creative ability or propose new solutions. Ryan has great talents but employees don't have the time to share some ideas because of the workload.
