    Pros

    Good work life balance program. Approachable leadership if you have any issues or advice for improvements. CEO truly cares about his employees. You can make a lot of money in bonuses if you're in the right situation.

    Cons

    A lot of colluding by principals to horde accounts and prospects. Everyone is about money here, so there is a lot of greed and back stabbing here. Horrible training or lack thereof for technical experience, though not the fault of the training department.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work on the improvement of the account ownership/sales process even though there will be growing pains. Look to improve project distribution and utilization of teams. Keep innovating your work life balance culture.

    I worked at Ryan, LLC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ryan provided the opportunity for a nice career trajectory if you were willing to put in long, underappreciated hours. There was some flexibility in terms in terms of time off and working from home, but your mileage varies greatly depending on your manager.

    Cons

    As a manager, you'll report to ten different partners who all believe that you're working exclusively on their projects. You'll be promised project bonuses that often take several years to pay out. Very poor recruiting/onboarding; teams (especially those outside of Texas) might wait months before they get the support they need.

    Advice to Management

    Stop posting fake reviews on Glassdoor. I suspect many of these reviews are fake, and I recommend anyone considering employment here to look at the rating trend and reviews before 2017. Ryan is a 3.5-star workplace, which is fine compared to Big Four and other accounting firms. But as of 2017 there's suddenly a flurry of vaguely-detailed 5-star reviews.

    Pros

    -Most directors will allow you to work from home at least some of the time.
    -Autonomy to do your work at your pace and your time as long as completed by deadlines.

    Cons

    -Not being rewarded by a job well done. Sometimes it feels like people are promoted because of how long they have been at Ryan and not how well they do their job.
    -Expectations are set high for incentive programs and the follow through rarely matches.
    -The base salary is FAR below that of comparable positions in the market place.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, skilled workforce, training

    Cons

    Stuffy, smug, judgmental, way too image conscious, team member competition rather than cooperation.

    Advice to Management

    We aren't the big 4 so stop acting like we are. We are better than that. Promote team cooperation. Stop the Principal Pyramid.

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

    Pros

    Provides variety of job opportunities/Open to new initiatives,
    Growing workplace,
    Work life balance (flexible login hours, work from home, flexible transportation, good leave, holiday policy),
    Among great places to work internationally and aspiring to be one in India.
    and a lot more.

    Cons

    Even though the our CEO, other top level management and Sr. Director (India) strives to make this a great place to work, this doesn't seem to be the case with mid-level management (in India). Most of them look uninspiring and they are also kind of biased in selections/promotions.
    Some mid-level managers take up the same old initiatives (of course for promotions), which either eats up employees time or causes trouble to them.
    Examples:
    Unnecessary meetings; Time consuming presentations; Excessive admiration at one's own work.
    The latest of this list is something called as Work station utilization. This is all about the use of a desk by two individuals by logging in two different times, which basically means, some employees should either pitch in very early in the day and some employees pitch in evening and work late in the night. This is of course a great initiative in saving the facility costs but very disturbing to the employees in work life balance.
    Note I mentioned ‘Work life balance’ in my pros, but with this initiative, this pro is going to history. This would force employees to adapt unusual sleep, food and health routines. This is just opposite to myRyan policy, which emphasizes on work life balance with employee accountability. It may also impact company ambition to sustain in the great places to work (in India).

    Advice to Management

    For growth, I think the Indian management should buy in US’s confidence for more work and initiatives, which subsequently helps in growth of India office. I think making this petty saving would help the organization to the 1$ billion mark.
