At Ryan, everything we do is guided by our five core values.

 

We are not in the "tax" business.

We are in the tomorrow business.

We believe in liberating companies from the burden of being overtaxed and freeing their capital to invest in their own tomorrow. Clients should only pay the taxes they absolutely owe—but no more—because the rest fuels their dreams of a better future.

When a company is overtaxed, job growth is underdeveloped, innovation languishes, and growth suffers. What's next and what could be lack the economic fuel necessary to take flight.

This is where we come in.

We alleviate the tax burdens that weigh our clients down and hold them back. We are driven to reinvent how to master the complexity of the modern tax code. That is our passion. No one knows it better. Where others see rules and regulations, we see opportunity. Where some see codes and constrictions, we see what could be. Where others say “we’re done here,” we say, “let’s get started.” We do not rest until we’ve created value and delivered results that offer relief to our clients and revenue to the bottom line.

This is the core principle Ryan was founded upon. We are here to liberate our clients from the burden of being overtaxed, freeing their capital to invest, grow, and thrive.

Creating a better tomorrow. For all of us.

Ryan’s approach to being a “Best Workplace” is most clearly demonstrated through myRyan, our Firm’s innovative work environment that allows employees to achieve the highest level of success and productivity in all areas of life, including professional and personal endeavors. As opposed to a traditional work environment, myRyan changes the measurement of work from hours to results. Through collaboration and support, Ryan employees thrive in a guilt-free workplace in which the focus is on results and superior client service, rather than where and when the work is done. In exchange for incredible flexibility and freedom, Ryan employees have accepted accountability for delivering results. 

myRyan supports team members through innovative communication and collaboration. Team members respect the work styles of others and plan effectively to ensure client service excellence. All employees have the freedom to work with their managers to determine the best approach that will allow them to achieve the best results. All employees communicate and collaborate to achieve work-life success.

Compensation
One reason for Ryan's success is that we share the success with our employees. We have created an innovative incentive program that allows us to distribute bonus income to employees based on their contributions to an engagement. Our base salaries are highly competitive, and the income potential for sharing in the value that we deliver to our clients is unparalleled.

Benefits
Ryan recognizes that our benefits provide for the well-being of our employees and their families. Most of our benefits are available to employees on the first of the month following their date of hire. Employees working in a regular, full scope or reduced scope one (1) capacity are eligible to participate in all of the benefit plans offered by the Firm. And because we understand that one size does not fit all, we offer many benefit plan choices, including:

Medical Coverage 
Medical plans offered by Ryan include outstanding health benefits and choices for our eligible employees and their dependents (i.e., spouse, domestic partner, and children). We offer two plans that allow employees the freedom to use both in-network and out-of-network providers for medically necessary and routine preventive care services—a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan and a High-Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). An employer subsidy is provided for both employee and dependent coverage.

Wellness Program
Our wellness program is modeled after Ryan’s results focused work environment. Individuals enrolled in a Ryan medical plan will be eligible to participate in the program and will have the opportunity to earn substantial premium credits if they meet the criteria of the program. Additionally, the program offers great resources to encourage participants to make healthy lifestyle choices and enjoy the benefits of improved overall wellness.


Dental Coverage
Ryan offers a  PPO dental plan, including orthodontia coverage, to all eligible employees and their dependents.

Vision Coverage
Ryan offers comprehensive vision coverage to all eligible employees and their dependents.

Pre-Tax Programs
Ryan’s Section 125 Plan enables eligible employees to pay for certain benefit plan premiums with pre-tax dollars. Net taxable income is reduced, which potentially lowers income and social security tax. Pre-tax options in the Section 125 program are as follows:

  1. Medical/Dental/Vision Premiums
  2. Health Care Reimbursement or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) - Employees are able to set aside pre-tax income to pay for non-reimbursable medical expenses for themselves and their qualified dependents. These expenses are not covered by insurance.
  3. Health Savings Accounts (HSA) - Employees who are enrolled in the HDHP may elect to open an HSA for pre-tax payroll deduction. The HSA is owned and opened by the employee. Ryan provides the option of this account for payroll deduction via our medical plan provider and its affiliates. Additionally, Ryan offers an employer HSA contribution for employees enrolled in the HSA and contributing a certain amount.

Company-Paid and Voluntary Life and Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) Insurance
Ryan provides group term life and AD&D insurance coverage at no cost to all regular, full scope and reduced scope one (1) employees. Employees may purchase additional term life and AD&D insurance coverage for themselves and their dependents.

Short- and Long-Term Disability 
Ryan provides both short- and long-term disability insurance at no cost to eligible employees.

Employee Assistance Program
Ryan employees and their immediate families have access to a confidential resource and referral services to discuss personal or professional issues they may be facing. This service is fully subsidized by the Firm.

401(k) Plan
Ryan offers a competitive 401(k) plan that provides a full array of investment options to make pre-tax or Roth 401(k) contributions and an employer matching contribution to all eligible employees.

Physical Fitness Program
Ryan provides a partial subsidy to eligible employees for membership dues at the fitness club of their choice.

Focus on Results

As part of our innovative myRyan work environment, employees are free to take time off at their discretion, guilt free, consistent with the needs of clients and the Firm, as long as their work gets done. The focus is on results and superior client service, rather than on where and when work is completed. myRyan is designed to allow professionals to achieve the highest level of success and productivity in all areas of life, including professional and personal endeavors. Because Ryan measures performance on results achieved, not hours worked, traditional vacation and Paid Time Off (PTO) programs are not in place for exempt (salaried) employees. 

The Firm provides eligible non-exempt (hourly) employees twenty-two (22) personal days off per year, which increases to twenty-seven (27) days after five (5) years of service. This time, which accrues on a per-pay-period basis, is available for vacation, illness, personal business, or any other time away from work. Time off for bereavement, extended illness/incapacity, jury duty, military, and parental leaves are handled through the Firm’s Time Off Programs Policy. 

The Firm provides ten (10) paid holidays per year to all eligible employees.

Leaves of Absence (LOA) 
Ryan offers generous paid and unpaid leaves of absence for a variety of reasons including, but not limited to, bereavement, jury duty, maternity, paternity, adoption, and military. 

Parking 
Parking facilities for all Ryan offices are subsidized by the Firm for the convenience of employees. 

CPA/Bar Exam Review Course and Bonus 
Upon successful completion of the Uniform CPA/Bar Examination while employed by Ryan, the Firm will reimburse up to $2,500 for fees relating to review courses taken during employment at the Firm. In addition, any employee who successfully completes the Uniform CPA/Bar Examination, while an employee of the Firm, will receive a cash bonus of $1,500. 

Professional Dues 
Professional dues to the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), state societies, and other equivalent professional associations for non-CPAs are reimbursable. 

These benefits may change from time to time at the Firm's discretion. This list is intended to provide a general outline of our benefits program. Ryan reserves the right to amend these benefits. 


Accelerated Promotion Path
Opportunity for advancement is one of the top criteria for recent graduates and professionals alike when seeking a new career. Ryan provides unlimited opportunity for advancement and an accelerated career path for high performers that exceed the traditional career timeline at national accounting firms and other tax consulting companies.

Training 

Ryan has one of the most comprehensive employee training curriculums you'll find in the industry. Developed by our own professionals, our extensive learning activities will enhance your knowledge and prepare you for the challenging and diverse issues you will encounter during your career. 

 
We are a four-time winner of the prestigious Association for Talent Development (ATD) BEST Award recognizing organizations that demonstrate enterprise-wide success through employee learning and development. Ryan recognizes the personal career impact that talent development and continuing education have on our associates, and we know that having a knowledgeable and skilled workforce drives client value and results.

    I have been working at Ryan, LLC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ownership and Management are progressive and open to change. The firm is recognized around the world as one of the best places to work. Everyone at the firm is helpful and extremely knowledgeable, which makes it a great place to learn and develop.

    Cons

    Not many here. You have to be willing to work hard to reep the benefits this firm has to offer. Something I really appreciate about it!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and listening to your employees. Having the discussions and openness to change will take this firm far. I don't believe there is a consulting firm out there that can compete with what Ryan has built. Great work!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ryan, LLC in March 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process took a while to find the right fit, but Ryan does really care about finding a team that you would work well with. The interviews were a little more laid back then others I've had, but they make you feel comfortable and want to see if your personality will fit.
