Beware of CRI-Austin
Senior (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJanuary 1, 2018
Cut-throat culture. Upstairs/downstairs segregation. Extremely high-turnover. Narcissistic management. Multiple processes for same task; inefficient. Beware.
Corporate firm does host CPE week held annually in May at one location where the professionals from every SPU attends.
Pros
CPE week
Cons
Training is only review notes

Fast Growing Firm; Needs an HR Department
Corporate (Former Employee) –  Enterprise, ALDecember 20, 2017
Solid place to work, even with poor direction in place. Great benefits, and competitive PTO policy. Work load is manageable some days, and too much on others. Leadership needs to take a look at the actual people at the firm instead of only focusing on growth.
Pros
great salary and benefits
Cons
poor management

Ok firm
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Tifton, GAOctober 6, 2017
If you’re looking for a place to work that doesn’t appreciate you as an individual, this is the firm for you. The management is not very well organized and the partners think they are too good to stop and answer a question. Major disrespect for the lower end employees by management and the partners. The work load is not balanced enough for any kind of work/life balance..
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
No work/life balance. Disrespect by partners and poor management

Fast paced environment
Senior Auditor (Current Employee) –  Harlingen, TXSeptember 22, 2017
Typical work day is 8-10 hours of audit preparation, planning, field work and wrapping up audits. Learned more efficient ways to conduct audits and how to document audit work. Management is very ethical and has a mutual respect and fairness for its employees. Workplace culture is ethical and fast paced. Deadlines are the hardest part of the job along with working long hours. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with a team and completing a project

Senior Accountant (Auditor) (Former Employee) –  Mandeville, LA 70448August 29, 2017
Let me say that the entire CRI firm is not one unit. Each location acts as it's own firm. With that being said, there is constant confusion about how things should be done. The firm is very disorganized and is merging too many firms at once. The employees are great to work with; however, until the corporate office starts regulating the ins and outs better, I would not recommend working for this company.
Pros
benefits, pay, environment
Cons
stressful, no work/life balance

Terrible Employer
Senior IT Auditor (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLMarch 29, 2016
This company was and is going through restructuring and a lot of changes after it was acquired by Carr Riggs and Ingram. They are nothing like the parent company and do not offer a work/life balance that any person could seriously be ok with. You will be flying out on Sundays, Coming back on a Friday. Expected to work on Saturdays,,,, so there is no time off...
Pros
None... Seriously None

Competitive and thriving workplace
Staff I Accountant (Current Employee) –  Shreveport, LAApril 15, 2015
A typical day at work involves a cup of coffee or oatmeal to wake you up for the tasks at hand.

I learnt the following at CRI:
-There is no time to wallow over past mistakes because the future always holds fresh starts.
-Strive to do things the right way the first time; creates efficiency and makes for happy reviewers.
-Take pride in your work; defend it when you have to and own up when its wrong.

This is a public firm, management was as good as it gets.

Co-workers are friendly; mostly family oriented.

The hardest part of the job is getting projects done within assigned budgets without compromising the quality of your work. This means ask a lot of questions as you go and fewer review notes from your supervisors.

The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to audit financial statements of various companies in different industries with an amazing team.
Pros
competitive healthcare and retirement benefits, family oriented
Cons
long busy season (5-6 months)
