    I have been working at Ryan & Wetmore as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hands on work with clients, accounting software, tax documents, and various reports. The staff are all willing to help out and are happy to explain the tasks. The company has good training for tax.

    Cons

    Outside of tax season, the interns don't always have enough work to do. Can get very slow.

    Advice to Management

    Find more work for the interns, possibly give them training clients on areas outside of tax.

    I worked at Ryan & Wetmore full-time

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly and helpful. You will gain experience in all areas of accounting and will learn a lot because people are available to answer questions and teach you. You can work on A&A, tax, consulting, or small business projects. You will be given responsibilities when you have proven yourself. The company is continuing to grow, so it is a good company to begin or continue your career with.

    Cons

    The same negatives as many other public accounting firms. There are times when there are long hours and a lot of work.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to pass some of their work down to staff so that they have more time to focus on the big picture and avoid the rush at deadlines. Also, need to try and get the younger staff more involved with the company.

    I worked at Ryan & Wetmore full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    R&W has lots of work, they can usually keep everyone busy. The partners also have a lot of skills they can pass on to you.

    Cons

    When in a time crunch it's really hard to get management to take the time with everyone. Sometimes they pick and choose.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate work sooner to newer employees even if they have other work to do, but make sure they have someone "mentoring" them and they know what they priority is. This should prevent the backlog that we see near deadlines.
