    Pros

    Flexible work environment. As long as you get your work done, you can pretty much work from wherever / whenever is best for you.

    Cons

    Bonus Structure, Per Diem, hours required for continued education

    Advice to Management

    Attempts to hit the benchmarks for "Best Places to Work" are superficial. Leads to unnecessary requirements that are non-beneficial.

    Pros

    Work flexibility - Work from home, setting own hours, flexible for families and children People - Really friendly and easy to work with people Reputable - Great for experience and a place to start a career

    Cons

    Demanding - Like all financial related firms, clients are everything. Sometimes sacrifices must be made for the firm. Traveling - Sometimes traveling can be a little too much Benefits - Benefits are not amazing but will get you by

    Pros

    The compensation is average however there are opportunities for bonuses. Mr. Brint obviously cares for each employee individually and expresses it often through motivational emails. Work-life balance is great due to a program at Ryan called MyRyan. It allows you to work at your own pace and set your own schedule (from home).

    Cons

    There are some mundane tasks, however many companies are.

    Pros

    -Solid opportunity to make $$$ if you can connect to the right Principals and BD's. -There is great freedom and flexibility of schedule with the highly touted MyRyan program (you will love reading the daily emails from HR about another award the program just won). -You can come and go as you please. -Growth leads to opportunity if you are willing to put in the time and travel. If you desire to spend as little time at home as possible this is the place to do it. -There are many good people here you just need to have the luck to land in a spot where you can work with them.

    Cons

    -Ego -Ego -Did I mention ego? Ryan is a place led by management that loves to pat themselves on the back. Some Principals have the management skills of a buffalo. Their inability to connect with normal people is astounding. Condescension and selfishness rules their day. Not all are like this but the ones that are ruin it for everyone. -Lousy base salary. -Incessant reporting/forecasting and meetings about reporting/forecasting take away the Entrepreneurial atmosphere that led to the growth of the company. When you struggle connecting with people, you manage the numbers. They love to manage the numbers. It truly is the only thing that matters. -The post on here that recommends that Ryan should hire "more people like me" says all that needs to be said about the company. If you believe the world revolves around you, then you may find a home here.

    Advice to Management

    Far be it from me to give advice. No one can fault the growth that the firm has seen over it's 20+ year history. The path ahead gets tougher as the road to $1B is a tougher stretch than the road to $400MM was. You will need to manage more than numbers to get there.

    Pros

    Good bonus if you assigned on a good team. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    If you do not assigned to a good senior, you are on your own to learn and explore the way to get work done.

    Advice to Management

    Need better training

    Pros

    This company is perfect for me. I am a type A, hard charger who wants to have unlimited earning potential based on results. That is what Ryan is all about. The low base, high bonus compensation model set up for the majority of the practices (I am in sales and use tax) is the way to go. If you are a self-starter, tax technical, disciplined and eager/hungry, this is the place for you. I have made way more money at Ryan than I would have anywhere else. It is about more than the money though. Ryan LIVES by its Purpose and Core Values. It isn't something that their marketing department came up with that just sounds good. Every word has meaning and leadership walks the walk and talks the talk. There is no doubt about it. Those in leadership positions still work directly on client accounts every day and are on the front lines. They know what is going on because they are living it. And the clients are Fortune 1000 companies where I have made many friends. They know and trust the capabilities of Ryan and have confidence and a commitment from our CEO that we will figure it out, leave no stone unturned, and be creative in our solutions. We won't close the project until we have the best result possible. We stick with it until the end. Not many firms do that as they are too busy looking at engagement economics, particuarly on contingency fee engagements.

    Cons

    There are occassionally growing pains but that is expected with a high-growth company. I would rather have pains here and there than be with a company that is stagnant.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire people like me. I want to be surrounded by those who want to succeed and will do whatever it takes to succeed by coming up with creative ideas, being thorough in their work, and commiting whatever time it takes to get the job done to the highest standards. Invest in Corporate Services to build a top-notch, proactive team to support the high growth business.
