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

    Pros

    I am really impressed with the continuous additions to the benefits that Ryan offers its employees. It's a professional organization that offers growth for those who seek it and desire it. Work and life balance is achievable at Ryan. Overall, a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Compensation has room for improvement; however, this year showed efforts and strides towards addressing this.

    Advice to Management

    For some, the glass is always half empty and it is hard to change that mindset. There are numerous employees that are proud and grateful for the opportunity at Ryan. Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Ryan, LLC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ownership and Management are progressive and open to change. The firm is recognized around the world as one of the best places to work. Everyone at the firm is helpful and extremely knowledgeable, which makes it a great place to learn and develop.

    Cons

    Not many here. You have to be willing to work hard to reep the benefits this firm has to offer. Something I really appreciate about it!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and listening to your employees. Having the discussions and openness to change will take this firm far. I don't believe there is a consulting firm out there that can compete with what Ryan has built. Great work!

    Salary and Benefits are normal

    1) No Training

    3)My Ryan is totally drama only gives this benefit to their babies and buddies
    4) Very few CA are working,
    5) No Paperless environment, the standard of working is very low not even close to mid-size accounting firms

    Advice to Management

    Be fair and open your eyes and find out what is going on under your nose,

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

    Pros

    After ten years of a public accounting environment, including my own practice for four years, I joined Ryan as I always wanted to pursue a career in sales tax. I'm finding I'm growing in the environment I'm in, and I love the flexibility I have to work from home. I love the general direction of the firm, and I can't wait to see what's in store for the future.

    Cons

    In all honesty, I have yet to find something about my career here that I find disappointing. I love the work I do here.

    Advice to Management

    It would be good for Canadian sales tax experts to take courses to have an intermediary understanding of different VAT/Sales taxes across the globe so as better to identify opportunities for our clients.

    I have been working at Ryan, LLC full-time

    Pros

    -large, interesting, varied client base allows for exposure to many interesting technologies
    -always get to learn and improve your skills
    -flexible work hours and work location
    -an ethical employer: file legitimate SR&ED claims (as opposed to some competitors who pressure employees to file bogus claims)
    -work with high quality team members
    -pay is combination of salary and commission/incentive
    -we are a growing team so there is opportunity for advancement

    Cons

    This isn't really a con, but the flexible work hours doesn't mean you get to slack off. There is a lot of work to be done so you need to be organized, efficient and driven to succeed but the flexible hours and working location lets you do this and have a family and/or personal life at the same time. We have had some team members who think they can play the system and they didn't get to keep their job for long, but otherwise there is very little turnover. This is a good place to work.
