    Pros

    The Houston office is flexible and the people are great to work with! Great family-like atmosphere with opportunities to learn new things.

    Cons

    When Gainer Donnelly became a part of Carr, Riggs & Ingram, there were system changes that created a new work culture with some growing pains. There's a not a consistent company image quite yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CRI is the fastest growing middle market public accounting firm because of its acquisition of the Gainer Donnelly office in Houston. What are the growth projections moving forward?

    Pros

    Has great visions for the "one firm concept

    Cons

    Implementation is very slow and painful, lacks follow through

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make changes necessary and move forward, piece-mealing one change at a time is a constant blow by blow.

    Pros

    Great pay -- great people. Everyone who works here is fun to be around and overall a very supportive environment. I would definitely recommend.

    Cons

    They will work you to the bone during tax season... but that's not always a bad thing - its good to work hard. Work-life balance around the deadline times can be stressful but that is the nature of the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Love on your employees more.

    I worked at Carr Riggs & Ingram part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Some opportunities for advancement, lots of challenging work, opportunities for advanced training, strong company, salary compensation is pretty good

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be poor at times, a culture of "need to work 7 days a week around the clock" not because the work demands it, but because its what's expected of the employees. This is only during tax season though and work does pick up, so it will get busy. Also, there could be a greater focus on staff morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider modernizing your business culture a little. Need to show greater appreciation of staff when placing high demands on them. A paycheck to an employee gets you the deliverables you expect....a paycheck to an employee and a showing of appreciation gets you the deliverables you desire.

    I have been working at Carr Riggs & Ingram full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Partners and Managers work to develop employees in areas that they would like to work, and don't view their staff as just another person to get the work done. You really feel like you are part of the team. There is also excellent opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    Corporate initiatives are not always rolled out timely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more corporate staff so as the firm is growing the administrative items can get accomplished timely.
