    I have been working at Ryan, LLC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I spent about 2 years at Ryan out of college before going to the Big 4 for 5 years. I've now been back with Ryan for almost 8 years. What I experienced at the Big 4 was completely opposite of what I expected. Rather than working with or developing cutting edge issues, I was tasked with taking the most conservative approach or doing "Same as last year." There was never an incentive to improve the process or become more efficient, but always asked "How does Ryan do it?"

    Ryan's client roster is as good or better in many cases than the Big 4. Clients continue to ask for our help after the Big 4 has told them to just pay a tax or we can't fight this issue.

    Getting to work with world class clients' Finance and Tax Departments, staying on the cutting-edge of tax issues, unlimited earnings potential, flexible work arrangements will keep me at Ryan.

    Cons

    We are all driven by a competitive spirit and it can create internal tension.

    Advice to Management

    Keep our "Clients First Focus" and the year-end incentive plans for all employees to share in the success of the Firm.

    Pros

    Ryan really is a great place to work. The compensation, atmosphere, and opportunities for growth are all huge positives when working at this company. The bonus structure is extraordinarily generous for employees at all levels. However, I have never experienced or heard of another company that offers anything that can compete with the work-life balance experienced at Ryan.

    Cons

    The only "con" is that the 401k plan could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Brint, you've heard it before, the 401k plan is the only thing holding this company back from being the perfect place to work. Great job overall!

    Pros

    Flexible work times is the gem
    You can choose what hours you work in any given day
    You can choose what days you want to work in any week
    You can choose where you want to work from on any given day (full remote or from any other Ryan office)

    Cons

    Relatively slow growth given the publicized ambitions
    Little bit of red-tapism

    Advice to Management

    Work on the cons

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

    Pros

    The opportunity for growth and development at Ryan is unsurpassed. MyRyan offers the ability to work when and how you are most successful, with emphasis on results and performance. This is at times challenging from a management perspective, but it is a worthwhile challenge! Upper management is open to feedback and mid-course corrections. Ryan provides a chance to work with driven and innovative colleagues. I am supported as well as challenged.

    Cons

    Ryan has experienced incredible growth, both organic and through acquisitions. It takes time to merge cultures and determine the best of all environments. Ryan as a company is committed to working through those challenges and in the end will find the best way to motivate and support all employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continuing soliciting, listening to, and acting on employee feedback

    Pros

    Professional, flexible, entrepreneurial work environment. Everyone is expected to meet or exceed expectations just like any other consulting or corporate environment.

    Cons

    Some leaders do not partner with employees to set clear, agreed to expectations, however improved HR processes and tools may soon improve this problem.

    Pros

    I've worked in the tax consulting industry since graduating college and Ryan is the best place I've worked to date. Unlike other tax firms, I have an unprecedented amount of autonomy over my work due to high level of trust my team shares coupled with the flexibility of the MyRyan program. MyRyan is a results oriented program that allows employees to work whenever and wherever so long as the work is completed accurately and exceeds client's expectations. MyRyan has enabled me to be the most creative and innovative employee I can be, i.e. if I need to leave work early on a particular day, I'll figure out a new & more efficient way to solve a problem or streamline a process in order to maximize the time & resources I have within the office.
    I think the creativity and ingenuity the MyRyan program inspires has been beneficial for both my clients and me.

    Coworkers-
    I have never met a stranger at Ryan. My team is incredibly supportive, flexible, experienced, and hardworking. We have fun inside and outside of the office. Everyone on my team has an extensive knowledge of the tax we practice, which makes things much simpler.

    Continuing Education-

    I am a life learner, so I appreciate all of the continuing education offered through the company. The seminars and classes offered by Ryan are often enjoyable and I always end up making new friends through them.

    Cons

    I wish we had more office wide events & a student loan "paydown" program.

    I have been working at Ryan, LLC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been here for almost a year now and I can honestly say this company is all around a great company to work for. I have worked for many companies before this one and I have never been as satisfied as I am with my job here. The management is outstanding, my boss is just as much as a team player as everyone else under him. We all work together and have no problem helping each other out. There is so many motivational incentives, it makes everyone driven to achieve their goals.

    Cons

    I don't see any cons thus far. I guess I would only say that the 401k plan could be matched better.

    I have been working at Ryan, LLC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been working here for more than 8 years. It's a great company to work for! I have learned a lot and grown a lot, both professionally and personally. The myRyan flexible work environment is an amazing concept and it is the reason I'm able to spend more time with my two, very young, kids then I would if this flexibility didn't exist. There are a lot of opportunities, but you have to work hard to reap the benefits.

    Cons

    I've been here a long time, and I've seen many changes take place, but none that I would consider to be negative. As long as the company continues to focus on growth, while keeping their clients and employees success in mind, there is nothing they can't do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing, because it looks like it’s working!
