It feels right. When consultants join our firm, that’s the sense they get. They’re in the right place, at the right time in their career. They’ve accumulated the level of skills and experience in finance and accounting to seamlessly become a valuable part of finance teams in some of the world’s fastest moving companies, leaning on their past experience to deftly solve problems and tackle tricky transactions.

Top Workplaces 2017

The sense of accomplishment our gurus feel as they get things done in the field is just one of the many reasons why our employees are happy here. And it contributes to why, even in this tight talent market, we are able to attract so many new consultants to our dream team.

A magnet for top talent

At RoseRyan, our consultants work in the best of both worlds—stimulated by a variety of challenging assignments at cool companies while also taking part in our own firm’s culture that’s open, supportive and connected.

This year’s Top 100 Workplaces survey results highlight three stellar strengths about our workplace:

  • Alignment: It’s all about teamwork and positive attitudes. Our culture is built upon a clear set of values. Employees feel their work is appreciated and meaningful.
  • Connection: We have a distributed workforce—most of our employees are continuously embedded in various client sites—but we all manage to keep bonded and well-informed about what’s going on, thanks to regular communications from CEO Kathy Ryan and a variety of employee-led special projects and activities.
  • Effectiveness: To achieve the best possible results for clients, we actively encourage different viewpoints from consultants. It’s a smart way of carrying out due process on a solution—and it keeps fresh ideas flowing when employees know their opinions are meant to be heard.

We have a reputation for helping with the right finance skills at just the right moment to calm the chaos or restore order when needed. Perhaps a company is going through a rough patch or needs a gap filled on the team. Our gurus’ natural tendency to “get things done” fast and efficiently from doing it so many times before translates into happy clients. And the positive feedback our consultants receive adds to their job satisfaction.

We love getting things done here in Silicon Valley and it shows. We excel at helping innovative companies reach their milestones, shift gears quickly and surge ahead. And we’re thrilled it’s getting noticed.

Like what you see here? If you think you’d fit right in with the RoseRyan culture and you have the right stuff, we’d love to hear from you. We’re always on the lookout for top talent—full-time and part-time. Contact Michelle Hickam at [email protected].
