I have been working at Weinstein, Spira & Company

Pros

A broad view of public accounting. The ability to see all aspects of an assurance engagement, from the engagement letter to the communication on corporate governance. Staff complete tax, audit, and consulting projects, with the opportunity to choose a career path upon promotion to senior accountant. Staff who are able to communicate boundaries to managers can achieve a reasonable work-life balance.

Cons

Unsophisticated clients with little accounting knowledge require extra work. Scheduling difficulties result in unnecessary deadline pressure, also a result of unsophisticated clients. Work-life balance is difficult to achieve, especially for staff with families in other states.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work to bring all owners on board with new initiatives before presentation to the firm as a whole.

    Pros

    Weinstein Spira & Co. is an excellent firm to grow your skills as an accountant. They offer an environment where everyone is very open to answering questions and explaining processes, not just asking you to complete them as quickly as possible. Also, you get many benefits that other firms don't offer - like straight-paid overtime. They also promote a work-life balance, so you won't be working 80 hours a week for your entire career. The busiest weeks are usually about 60 hours.

    Cons

    They don't have a huge name, although they are well known among many of the highly compensated individuals (and their associated businesses) in Houston. There isn't a ton of room for growth, as far as titles go, because many of the shareholders seem to be very happy in their positions and there is no forced retirement age.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think bigger, make room for employees to come up so they don't feel like they cap out and need to look elsewhere for the compensation they need. Find more ways to bring the company together outside of work, so that we have more unity in the office.

    I have been working at Weinstein, Spira & Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It might not be a well recognized name, but they definitely have a broad array of clients. They also offer a rotation program during your internship as well as during your first year as staff. From there, you can choose if you would like to pursue audit or tax. Also, you get many benefits like straight-paid overtime and a good work life-balance. Average overtime is around 50-60 hours during busy season. The people are great and it's a good place to start your career.

    Cons

    Be more open to ideas such as jean Friday year-round.
