Being able to interact with the rest of the staff, and really feeling as if I was gaining experience was great. Speaking to some of my classmates, it is obvious I have gained more knowledge then even those who interned at Big Four firms.
I did not have as much audit experience as I would have liked. Although, since I have been back, I have had much more exposure to audits.
Advice to Potential Interns
Culture and work-life-balance are very important when choosing where to work full time, or even as an intern. Withum really encourages this, and I think it makes the employees happier.
Advice to Management
Intern training was very informative, but it went very fast, and it was hard to keep up with for some who did not have any prior experience with the systems. I think trying to put it all in one day may have been overwhelming.
