    I have been working at Ryan, LLC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    myRyan has allowed me to work and at the same time take care of my mother at her home. This has been a blessing to my family to allow my mother personal freedom and to give my whole family relief she is with family. myRyan fosters personal responsibility but also is about Ryan caring about its employees' ability to blend work and personal.

    Cons

    myRyan does foster personal responsibility and some people will not prosper in such a non-traditional enviroment

    I worked at Ryan, LLC (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility with myRyan, but very dependent on the manager.

    Cons

    Bonuses dependent on the team you are on. Recruitment is a lottery, you could be on a good team or a bad team. If you are on a small team, leave immediately. Very small bonuses with small salary.

    Advice to Management

    There are times when there is nothing to do. Do not force employees to just stay and sit there wasting their time. Let them use myRyan.

    I worked at Ryan, LLC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The Property Tax Practices are the best in the industry. The Complex, Commercial and Compliance Practice Leaders and the Partners that I worked with, especially those in the Dallas office, are extremely friendly, fair, and always try to "do right" by their employees.

    Cons

    Because Ryan's Property Tax Practices are the largest and best in the industry, there is no shortage of clients or work to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Top Level Execs should continue to look for opportunities to delegate practice-specific and business unit-specific final reviews and final approvals down to the various Practice Leaders and BU leaders so that they can focus on the "big picture" items/ company-wide initiatives and strategies instead.

    I worked at Ryan, LLC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working from home (depending on team and manager)
    Reimbursement for parking/commuter

    Cons

    I worked here for a year or so and at first the ability to work from home made me love the company. However, I was never given enough work and because there was never anyone in the office, there was little to no training. Ryan has terrible management that fails to adequately delegate work to their lower levels and then blames the staff level employees for it.

    I have been working at Ryan, LLC full-time

    Pros

    Ryan has a great niche in the professional business tax services space. Not being an accounting firm (and subject to audit firm issues) or a regional competitor, Ryan can leverage local resources on a national scale. This is perfect for businesses that do not want to deal with multiple tax firms with their issues.

    Overall, the firm is laser-focused on achieving results with a focus on organic growth and seizing acquisition opportunities in the marketplace. This allows the firm to continue providing the best service and present opportunities to individuals that want to grow.

    Ryan is not a place for people that do not want to continue developing themselves and willing to put in a superior effort to achieve results. This is a not firm where one can hide by merely "showing up" to work.

    Though it is a competitive environment, I have found there to be a team effort on a firm and local office level. The local office managers are focused on creating the best environment for client service and employee growth. Though the management team does not always get it right, I know they are working with the best interests of the staff.

    Cons

    As Ryan continues to grow and evolve, better structures and systems need to be developed to allow the firm operations to match the size of the firm. There is a lot of tedious report running and calls on financials, and other matters.

    Another example is in the area of expense and PO approvals. Makes no sense why the CEO needs to still approve these. If there was a better system in place (including accountability), there would not be a need for this type of structure.

    Overall, internal support groups lag in providing service and seems they are not valued as much as client-facing professionals. Higher turnover rates, delayed responses and lack of organizational knowledge have created many groups where the service needs improvement.

    Principals still seem to run everything at Ryan to the point where others voices are not allowed or considered. No real decision-making exists if you are not a Principal. This is too bad as there are many talented people that are not heard.

    Advice to Management

    Continue transforming processes and structure to match the firm size. Build better accountability measures into practice and local offices so results are much more evident and easily accessible.

    Continue the monthly calls with Brint and messaging from the firm and practice groups. These are invaluable and show the firm cares.

    Continue the laser-focus on growth as this will create opportunities for our firm and people.

    This firm has a lot of potential so keep on transforming everything.

    Pros

    Good Company values. They offer work life balance.

    Work load was intense. There wasn't enough time for family or to do community projects. The other con is there is no vacation accural.
