Provides and excellent opportunity to learn about sales tax and share this knowledge with our clients.

Manager, Client Support Services (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON

I have been working at Ryan, LLC full-time for more than 10 years

ProsEmployees are encouraged to make suggestions for improvement or make to make changes to imporve processes and are allowed to run with new endeavors or initiatives without much interferece from senior management. Whenever an employees takes charge of a new initiative they are typically acknowledged for their efforts.

ConsIn some situations senior management agrees to or decides to take on some work or project without consulting the groups affected or considering the current capicity of the groups involved.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen action items are assigned at Town Hall meetings a report back to the employees should be made to keep them informed on the status of the action item. When senior management accepts a meeting they should do their best to attend the meeting or send a note they will not be attending. Too often meetings are accepted by senior management and they do not show up. Where they do show at a meeting they are almost always late.

Working at Ryan

Consultant (Current Employee)
Mississauga, ON

I have been working at Ryan, LLC full-time for less than a year

ProsMyRyan - allows a work-life balance, especially if you have a young family.
Some of the best professionals in their field work at Ryan. Excellent atmosphere and work ethics.

ConsVery aggressive recovery measures - if you generate money for the firm all is well, otherwise expect to be out rather quickly.

Working for a company that has great goals, vision and leadership. Poor insurance options and decent compensation.

Analyst Role (Current Employee)

I have been working at Ryan, LLC full-time

ProsGreat work-life balance. Lots of PTO and flexibility. Great office location. Very thoughtful Firm Meetings.

ConsInsurance is really pricey out of pocket. It's been difficult to stay satisfied here when other well known companies offer better insurance and compensation. Ryan wants the Best talent but isn't willing to up the ante.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work, and try and dialogue on a friendly level once in a while.

Great place to work for.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Los Angeles, CA (US)

I worked at Ryan, LLC full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood management. Good people. Good company policies and procedures. They give you flexibility in your work schedule. Not a Big 4, but they're just as good without the daily overtime.

ConsNot much. There will always be some office politics since people within the office have different personalities. Also, they recruit straight out of college like the Big 4s.. so there's a level of immaturity amongst those who are young.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing.

Intern perspective

Intern (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I have been working at Ryan, LLC as an intern for less than a year

ProsGreat flexibility! Even as an intern I was given quite a bit of flexibility throughout my internship. The bonus structure also makes the company quite competitive from the typical CPA firms. They also offer terrific training if you lack skills in programs such as excel and access. Their technical training wasn't very effective in my opinion however. I did accept a full time offer with the company. I do believe this is a great place to start a career if you don't want to do the whole big 4 thing while still doing taxes yet not spending countless hours doing tax returns. You get the opportunity to do a variety of tasks at Ryan which was nice.

ConsAlthough the bonus structure is great it takes a good deal of time before you see these bonuses. And as much as I hate to admit, your happiness at Ryan ultimately depends on what team you end up on. Not all managers are created equal and not all managers embrace the flexibility of myRyan. Thankfully, I had a wonderful manager but it is still a drawback of working there. I also couldn't stand how the company micromanages every little detail and requires multiple approvals for even the smallest things. I understand the company wants to effectively allocate their resources but some of these internal procedures are inefficient when you have to wait on management and ownership approval on certain things.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe flexibility is great but not all managers embrace this. Make sure all managers are following the blueprint set out by the CEO. Also I think at the current rate of growth with the company that some of the internal processes need to change to be more efficient. I also think interns should be entitled to bonuses for their work they contribute to projects as well. Interns are treated the same as first year consultants so I believe the work they spend on projects should be rewarded. Also I think the hourly pay rate needs to be closer to the CPA competitors.

I think this has become a really great place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Ryan, LLC full-time for more than 5 years

ProsHands down, you can't beat the flexibility given to you here. The gym, phone, and train allowances are the best thing ever to me. I will say that the CEO has been forward thinking and has become open minded over the past 5 years. It has been a great change to see here at Ryan. He seems to listen to feedback and implements changes based on that feedback. I have yet to work at any company that has done that.

ConsThe review system and having to be at exactly 100% doesn't seem realistic. I understand if you don't meet all of your goals that you shouldn't get a full increase, but some sort of partial increase should be allowed if you achieved 85% of your goals? Also if you get below 100% that hurts you for an entire year and can stop you from getting an salary bump for waayyy too long.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate!!! Communicate if your employee is not doing well or is not meeting your expectations. Embrace the differences in an individual's work style and MANAGE that to get the results that you are seeking from that person. Simply saying, "Be like him" or "Be like her" or "I wish you were like such and such" is not a motivator for anyone and will cause resentment. Describe the TRAITS that you desire and coach your employee that way.

Wonderful place to be!

Senior Associate (Current Employee)
Nashville, TN (US)

I have been working at Ryan, LLC full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFlexibility, fun environment, sense of accomplishment everyday. This is my second time at Ryan, and am much happier this time than I was prior.

ConsSmaller teams are having issues maintaining a good bonus pipeline. Also, not all managers (especially in my group) are embracing MyRyan. I notice it a lot with the managers from the recently acquired Thomson Reuters PTS group.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure all managers (especially in the new PTS group) are embracing MyRyan
