Excellent Real Accounting Experience
Other (US) | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Able to work side by side with professionals, and learn so much during the internship. Treated just like any of the staff. Assigned real clients and real work, not menial tasks.


Downers

No real cons about the internship, it gave you a real taste of public accounting.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be ready to put in the long hours, but have some fun and treats along the way.


Advice to Management

The hours can be a bit much towards the end of season.

BEST INTERNSHIP EVER HAVE
Other (US) | 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.

Excellent, comfortable, learning experience leads to job.
Other (US) | 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

An internship where you're not treated like an intern, but as a full time employee.
New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Getting right into real work. As an intern I was treated just like any other staff, interns have the same responsibilities as most other staff. Hourly pay was also great especially because we worked a lot of overtime during busy season. The people were great as well, always felt like a part of the company and not just an intern. There was no 'intern work' or have the intern do it attitude.


Downers

The hours were tough but it was during busy season so that is expcected. Worked 6 days a week for almost my entire 4 months as an intern.


Advice to Potential Interns

You will be exposed to a lot and learn a tremendous amount in a short time. You're going to be treated like a staff and have pretty close to the same expectations in terms of your work load and quality of work. You will most likely get a job offer. I received a job offer and almost every other person who has interned here has received and accepted a job offer. The culture is also great people try to have fun despite the crazy amount of work you will have to do during busy season. Despite all the work though you are paid by the hour and cand make some pretty good money especially because you will be working overtime every week.

Awesome learning experience. I would do it over again if I were given the opportunity.
New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

We were treated just like a first year associate so we were exposed to all the aspects of an audit. This was great as a learning experience.


Downers

We went directly in to a week long training program and some of the information was over my head at the time. From what I understand they have made some improvements to this taining program.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be expected to work long hours and actually get real hands on experience. Even though the hours are long the firm does their best to make it fun by conducting various activities throughout the busy season.

A Phenomenal Experience
New York, NY | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

That we were treated as if we were full-time employees and people genuinely cared about you. Also being the only staff on some engagements made for a fantastic learning experience.


Downers

There was nothing internal to the firm that I did not like. I would have to say the hours; however, it is busy season so that comes with the profession.


Advice to Potential Interns

Do not worry about the technical aspects of the job. RK will teach you that. Come in with a good attitude, willingness to ask questions, and the drive to learn and you will succeed.

I was not treated as an "intern" during my internship. Rather, I was treated as a normal staff member and given the same work and responsibilities.


Downers

Have training after a week of in office, hands on shadowing.
