Staff Testimonials

“I love working at BatesCarter because I have the opportunity to witness firsthand the professionalism and due care that are put into each and every client. Everyone that is associated with each project cares about who the client is and what their needs are – and they work to exceed those needs. I have met a lot of incredible people, both clients and colleagues, and this has truly become my second family.”  Courtney Parm

"I began working with BatesCarter full time at the end of my college career in January 2020. In the past two years, I have learned a vast array of skills from/to proficiency and professionalism. I am so grateful that I was recently promoted to Audit Senior on the Government Audit team. This firm has given me the opportunity to take as “big of a bite” as I would like and has continuously encouraged my development. I would HIGHLY recommend this firm to any new professional that is looking for an environment that not only encourages professional growth, but also personal growth. Bates Carter very generously assisted with all the trials that arise while becoming a CPA. Over the past year, I have passed all four exams and received an overwhelming amount of support from my co-workers, supervisors, and partners.  Bates Carter also offers a much different atmosphere than other similar firms. Our firm prides itself on the family atmosphere that is felt from the second you walk in the door. It is so amazing to come to work every day loving the job AND the amazing team that you work with."  Maggie Dekreon

"I interviewed with Mr. Bates wearing grey dress pants, white shirt, red and blue striped tie, and a Members Only jacket, which was cool at the time. I came back later wearing a sport coat to meet Mr. Carter. My grandmother bought it for me. Mr. Bates called me a week later and offered me a job.  I accepted without asking about the pay.  Mr. Bates would say that I interned for about five years.  He probably had a great sense of humor."  Russell Hopkins

"I am always energized by the spirit of the people in this firm. Every one here is dedicated to providing quality service to our clients. The partners set the tone for the firm of always providing excellent work and striving to exceed client’s expectations." Martha Cartee

"I feel very lucky to be part of such a wonderful team of professionals. We all care about the firm and work together as a team striving to exceed the clients' expectations." Nora Roe
