The corporate culture at WS+B is awesome. There is a great balance of work and play, which is very important to me. I also really like that there is an open door policy, so I can go to anyone, even a partner with a question and everyone is always willing to help. At WS+B, I was assigned "real" work, like completing tax returns and I was able to apply what I had learned in the classroom to the real world, unlike some of my peers who had internships where they did more assiting work such as running errands and filing. I also liked that even though I primarly worked on tax returns, if there was an opportunity I was able to do some work in different areas such as litigation support and auditing. They were also very flexible and understanding of my school schedule and emphasized that school was my top priority.
I would have liked to get more experience in audting. I know this can be difficuly during tax season, especially being a "tax season" intern. I did have the opportunity to do some audit work and go to a client, but I would like to get more experience in this area.
Advice to Potential Interns
If you are looking for great corporate culture, this is the place to be. It isn't your typical accounting firm where the focus is all work and dry personalities. WS+B also does a lot of activities to give back to the community and various charitable organizations, so if that is something that is important to you, WS+B is a great place to be.
