    I have been working at Ryan, LLC full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules. Work was not charge hour focused but just getting the work done. Not a lot of overtime like other public accounting firms. Team oriented so hopefully you get along with your team.

    Cons

    Relatively small office in LA. If you don't like your team there is a lot of politics to switching teams similar to most places.

    I worked at Ryan, LLC full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Potential to earn significant bonuses based upon your position and the service line within which you work. The myRyan program was a big plus, especially for individuals trying to balance work and family responsibilities.

    Cons

    Bonus potential depends heavily on the service line and the industry/clients that you are assigned to.

    Ryan strives to keep their best talent by offering bonuses, outstanding flexibility and dedicated management.

    We pay for casual Friday, but it goes to charity so it's not too much of a con.

    I worked at Ryan, LLC full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Company is getting into the 21st century and providing employees more and better learning courses and various ways to recognize employees. Company is the best as sales and use tax projects an should not veer away from their area of expertise.

    Cons

    Lack of competent directors and principals with necessary project management skills in new service lines in the Federal area. Zero work life balance. MyRyan does not exist for most employees and not consistent across the board. Beware of the theory that you were hired because you are the best of the best, you are hired due to high turnover and the service line was desperate to find someone. Complete client deliverables are provided the client 3 to 6 months after a tax filing and ethics does not play a factor in the work product. Being on both the client side and consulting side, I would be wary of using Ryan for anything other than sale and property tax projects. Principals are not in agreement as to the project status reports and the value to the client. High turnover, I was looking for a job two weeks after I started this role and extremely happy I have my work life balance back and do not let Ryan fool you that it is work life success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I cannot provide much advice as I understand many people who have been at Ryan have provided advice but to no avail. The best advice is to focus on your core practice of sales and use tax and let the big boy firms handle the federal services.

    Pros

    Ability to set your own schedule and manage your own work-life balance
    Very successful model in place, all the tools you need to succeed are available

    Cons

    Opportunites to succeed must be sought and created by you - for those that are driven and ready for the challenges, the rewards are immense
    Achieving success is not easy - must be willing to put in extra time and effort at times to succeed

    I have been working at Ryan, LLC part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible work environment that allows for work life balance.

    Cons

    Projects (and therefore bonuses) not evenly distributed. If you are on a good team with good projects that the partners distribute to you, then you're set, but if not, you have to find your own clients or be forced to do junk projects with no profit. Also, this is not a CPA firm so it is difficult to get certified if your manager is not a CPA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balance project distribution out better.
