What I liked least about the internship was the initial training, which was very broad and did not apply to what I would be doing in the office.

Getting a good idea of what busy season is like for accountants and also sharing the same duties as a normal first year full time employee.

Downers

Towards the end of the internship the amount of down time began to increase.

Rothstein Kass Interns Receive Realistic Work Relationships and Expierence.

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

Rothstein Kass, The Place To Work

5.0 of 5 stars

Other (US) | 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.

BEST INTERNSHIP EVER HAVE

5.0 of 5 stars

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.

Would You Recommend

Yes

A Phenomenal Experience

5.0 of 5 stars

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.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great Firm, Great Pay, GREAT CULTURE

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.

Would You Recommend

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.

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.
