Rothstein Kass Interns Receive Realistic Work Relationships and Expierence.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I felt like a true staff accountant and was not just stuffing envelopes and scanning papers. I felt like a professional in my field upon leaving the internship.


Downers

There were times where seniors did not teach us what we needed to do as well as I would have liked.


Advice to Potential Interns

Really get to know the person who you are interviewing with. The HR representatives truly represent the nature of the firm and can provide you with insight on how the culture is.


Advice to Management

Compensation is a bit lower than the Big 4 interns.


Would You Recommend

Yes

BEST INTERNSHIP EVER HAVE
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

One on one training
Intensive Excel training
Manager / Senior were very easy to communicate with
Friendly environment (both in house and afterwork social life)


Downers

Training seemed inconsistant within and outside of department. Information needs to better spread across the company, many commend errors could be easily prevented.


Advice to Potential Interns

Don't hesitate to ask many questions
Take good notes
Spent only 10-15 min on one problem. If you stuck longer than that, don't afraid to ask Senior / Manager for help, most likely they can resolve the issue. People like to see that you gave an effort to attempt solving the problem before raise the question. Remember, don't waste too much time; this reduces the efficiency of yourself and your team's specially during tax season.


Advice to Management

Continue to offer the position to candidate who intended to enter the Accounting and/or Tax pratice later in his/her career. The position helps candidates gain basic knowledge how hedge fund accounting works.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Great Firm, Great Pay, GREAT CULTURE
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

People were great and I learned tons about Auditing/ Auditing Hedge Funds.


Downers

Only thing I was not wild about was the start date. After a week of training we started full time around the second week of January which by then things were very busy.


Advice to Potential Interns

Great firm to work for and the internship just shows you this over a 3 month period.


Advice to Management

Only thing I was not wild about was the start date. After a week of training we started full time around the second week of January which by then things were very busy. Starting the middle of December will allow for new hires to become introduced to the firm and trained BEFORE Busy Season.

Rothstein Kass, The Place To Work
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Everyone was very helpful and accomodating. All the employees at all levels were willing to help me and make sure that I was successful at what I as doing. The office cultrue is fantastc. I felt like I was making a difference and assisting RK team members with meaning work.


Downers

The long hours, but that I a known thing about working a busy season at an accounting office.


Advice to Potential Interns

Unlike at the Big 4 firms, at RK you are more than just a number. Everyone knows who everyone else is and everyone is willing and able to work together to figure out a problem. Interns are generalyl hired with the intent for a full time offer, which makes everyone work even harder during their internships.

Excellent, comfortable, learning experience leads to job.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The culture of Rothstein Kass is very friendly and helpful. They take alot of pressure off you and provide all the information you need that will lead to a successful internship and possible full time offer.


Downers

Not knowing right away if you are taking too long to complete a task. Sometimes higher level staff will fix your workpapers and not tell you what they did or that they were going to do the work. Also, sometimes there was no work to do.


Advice to Potential Interns

They have a great work/life balance. You have plenty of opportunity to learn your craft in an environment that is more nuturing than the big 4. Salary is a little lower but you can get OT and up to 7 weeks vacation.


Advice to Management

I am very happy with my workplace.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Excellent Opportunities at Rothstein Kass via our Internship Program
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

They treated me like a full time employee. Our responsibilities were those of a full time staff members which was excellent.


Downers

The hours. But that goes with the industry (accounting) during a busy 'season'. It had nothing to do with the company really - just the flow of business.


Advice to Potential Interns

This is a great company. They really try and make life as easy as possible when you first start and join the company. Completely recommended for anyone entering into the accounting world and interested in Finance (FS audit department).


Advice to Management

I like it here as is!


Would You Recommend

Yes
