    Pros

    Great experience for the industry but best used as a stepping stone. Flexible work schedule, however you are literally on call 24/7 and might sleep in your office/cube.

    Cons

    If you like working long hours for below average pay and a horrible back stabbing culture the they are the employer for you. The pyramid type compensation scheme leads to minimal opportunities if you are not willing to brown nose or sacrifice your own bonus to get decent projects. Basically if you start out in a satellite office outside of Dallas, the benefits are limited. They don't reward the people who perform the work but rather the people who sell the work. Even if you are able to land a new prosperous client chances are a Principal has already listed them as their own, even if they do not have a contact inside the firm. Basically your typical Republican bureaucracy to make the rich richer off the backs of others. For a small growing company their business model is fine, but their recent growth (strictly by acquisition, and not necessarily organically) has put constant strain on internal departments and functions such as IT, HR, recruiting, and as a result limited their employees due compensation. It's a Big Four wannabe with the same long hours, worse benefits, a toxic culture, and less pay.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees at least industry average, correct case assignment issues, hold Principals responsible when clients to don't pay (not the employees paychecks who then suffer as a result of the Principals cutting back door deals), quit the Texas branch office favoritism, provide teams with better resources to do their jobs effectively as in extra staff and access to better projects (especially when so much of your pay is based on bonuses due to the quality of projects sold by others. If you don't start out on a large revenue team you are in trouble.

    I worked at Ryan, LLC full-time

    Pros

    Ryan provides a good platform for starting a career in indirect tax. In my experience pay is competitive with other firms outside of the major metropolitan areas (LA, San Francisco, New York). Also, the opportunity to work with a variety of clients allows one to gain a well versed indirect tax experience. Management recognizes employees requests, and works to try and facilitate requests.

    Cons

    Overall my experience was positive, but I believe Ryan could improve on work-life balance (have actual PTO), compensation per hours worked (project dependent), and lack of internal cooperation between employees on all levels.

    Advice to Management

    Ryan has a strong foundation, and has the potential to reach it's aspirations but management needs to focus on managing and growing the business and reduce their client work. Or bring in the necessary executives. I recognize the folks at the top work a ton of hours, but quantity does not always equal quality results.

    Pros

    The team structure used in the service delivery practices encourages camaraderie among work peers within your team. Challenging and stimulating work for the most part. From what I've seen and experienced, the company mostly honors the flex-time working style they promote. Upward mobility is pretty good, and the earning potential can be very high right from the start depending on what team you're placed on (due to bonus structure). Ability to have a good work-life balance is pretty solid; there are certainly times where crazy long hours are necessary, but it's sporadic enough to where it doesn't completely interfere with your personal life.

    Cons

    Not too much to complain about, really. Each team does tend to handle things quite a bit differently, so the variances in how one's experience might be depends quite a bit on which team you end up on. Most teams do seem to be pretty good though. Even though Ryan is not a huge company, sometimes you still feel the burn of bureaucratic and mundane tasks that take time away from revenue generating work.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a good job of striving for continuous improvement, and being receptive to employees ideas to improve.
