Join Our Team

While we have evolved into an organization capable of keeping pace in an age of burgeoning technology and a global economy, we are steadfast in our belief it is our people who make us successful.

It is the spirit of our people and the loyalty of our clients that have set Ericksen Krentel apart for more than 60 years. But our broad menu of services is second only to the quality of our people.

Ericksen Krentel is very cognizant of work-life balance and strives to exceed the normal workplace standards. That comes by way of our generous flex-time program and a general concern for our employees – making sure their work schedule and professional growth can accommodate their personal needs. The support component complements that flexibility in two key areas: support for personal and professional development through community initiatives, continuing professional education and flexibility with scheduling; and support to provide the resources necessary to succeed, from technology to marketing, professional growth to CPA exams.

  • Continuing Education Program
  • Telecommuting
  • Flexible Hours
  • Employee Orientation Program
  • Employee Recognition Program
  • Tuition Assistance
  • Fitness program
  • Various social events after busy periods
  • Holiday parties and staff appreciation events throughout the year

Community

We believe being involved with the community – and our clients – is a priority. Many members of our team serve on community boards unrelated to their particular practice, from their respective homeowner associations and local church boards to more specific organizations such as First Tee and French Quarter Festivals Inc.
