    I have been working at Ryan, LLC

    Pros

    Ryan is a great company to work for. There are lots of opportunities to make substantial commission unless you are in corporate.
    Personally, I work in a remote office from the head quarter and I enjoy working with management. I try to volunteer as much as I can but those opportunities are limited.

    Cons

    The expectations of management are very high. The problem is, there are some staff who don't have enough work while others have too much. I support alot of users. This affects my quality of work, response time and availability which will ultimately affect my bonus due to clients' surveys.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advise to management is:
    1) Listen to your staff and provide additional resources as required. Losing a strong talent will cost more to replace.
    2) Over working an employee will cause the him/her to not use their creative ability or propose new solutions. Ryan has great talents but employees don't have the time to share some ideas because of the workload.

    Pros

    Best in Class service to clients. Strong Marketing. Has all the tools to be a great place to work.

    Cons

    Company politics and a wild west approach to sales make this a difficult place to work. With such rapid growth into other countries, the philosophies of Ryan H/O to do not transfer to their international branches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees that leave your company. With such a great product and service the main reason people leave is leadership.

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

    Pros

    Employees 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.

    Cons

    In 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 ManagementAdvice

    When 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.

    Cons

    Bonus Structure, Per Diem, hours required for continued education

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Attempts to hit the benchmarks for "Best Places to Work" are superficial. Leads to unnecessary requirements that are non-beneficial.
