    Pros

    Flexibility wise i recommend this company is good. Healthy environment to work without much pressure.

    Cons

    Need to create more opportunities to the employees who are expertise in their respective levels. Vote for talent instead of experience. Compensation should be revised because it was set long ago. Otherwise it is the best company to work.

    I have been working at Ryan, LLC full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are awesome people, flex policy is great if your manager supports it

    Cons

    Executive leadership only has experience at Ryan and does not have the outside knowledge from which to draw upon. Company is medium-large scale but is still run as if there are only 20 employees - very difficult to make progress.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the people you have hired to do their jobs. Routing everything through the CEO is very inefficient.

    Pros

    The best thing is that they hire intelligent people who are highly motivated to get the job done. Generally, you can depend on people to help if you reach out, and there's a lot to learn if you take the opportunity.
    The myRyan environment works well and people are grateful.

    Cons

    - the account assignment system is flawed. A few principals own most of the large accounts and don't like to share, shutting down opportunities for the firm to grow. Arrogance and greed rule the day.
    - the comp plan doesn't work. A few make 7 figure incomes, but unless you're on an oil and gas account, most lower people suffer from substandard compensation as the promised bonuses are surprisingly hard to achieve - this is due to it being rigged in favor of the client principal who many times does little to nothing, the fact that many engagements shouldn't be performance based, and long timers hogging the most lucrative accounts - what works in Texas flat out doesn't work in many other states.
    - principals sit on accounts stifling business. I know of many instances where they've been brought great opportunities by underlings but they shut it down. Most principals are myopic and don't know how to cross sell.
    - Too many rules, too much bureaucracy, and too much hierarchy stifles entrepreneurialism - the only people allowed to be creative either live in Dallas, or are in the inner circle - they bring in great people but pig-headed upper management shuts them down
    - management is too Dallas-centric and out of touch with the Northeast and west coast. Pay lags well behind the market in these areas and policies (like hotel rates) and account assignments are out of touch.
    - Management is tone deaf to employees - my coworkers are demoralized due to departures by unsatisfied employees. Upper management doesn't realize the reality of the marketplace, with different tax laws making the business work differently
    - HR, IT, Facilities, and Finance have been a revolving door - they're overworked, under compensated, management keeps the hamstrung with poor systems and unrealistic, petty policies they have to enforce
    - training requirement sounds great, but if you're not in Dallas, and at a higher level, boring, mind numbing canned classes are all there are...
    - poor health insurance, 401k, etc.
    - cheap, shortsighted cellphone reimbursement policy has made more employees mad than any one single action by management
    - every purchase takes forever, even if within policy. Approval chains are long, and even $3 of postage must be approved by highest management - is this the best use of their time??

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and make needed changes. When you hire expertise to help you improve the company, LISTEN to them - you've driven many high quality people away. Realize the other 49 states aren't run like Texas and adapt the business to the realities of the marketplace. Don't stifle entrepreneurialism - it's what made the firm great and it's what can push us to further great things. Don't pigeonhole people - many of us with great skills and abilities are working at a fraction of our capacity due to your constraints and barriers. Unleash the power of your people, don't crush us with petty policies, the inflexible and odious Workday and shortsighted cellphone and office equipment policies. Make Ryan a truly Great Place to Work, rather than gaming the system for the title - we see through the facade...employees will respond to honest, sincere commitment on your part to supporting us and reward you with a better, more profitable company, rather than being demoralized and ruled by fear.

    Pros

    Flextime is good in theory and generally good co-workers, but...

    Cons

    Pay system is designed to pit co-workers against one another for bonuses and management decides who gets what accounts. Cultish environment with Brent Ryan at the helm. You are always on call.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the bonus system and pay fairly.
