Intern Reviews

  • "There was complete transparency and the overall environment and culture were amazing. Through my weeks there I asked many different people questions regarding work/life balance and such. There was a very similar answer among them that they are able to have a work/life balance with what the firm offers them."
  • "It was AMAZING - literally everyone is happy and excited to be there. You honestly forget you’re even working."
  • "Work life balance is something that is valued highly at the firm and interns work a very reasonable or light schedule. The internship is very accommodating and flexible and while interns work 40 hours a week there are fun events sprinkled in during this time."
  • "The firm culture is unmatched. Everyone I worked with was always happy to share about their experience with the firm and answer all the questions that I had for them. Even though I was nervous about messing up on tasks I always felt supported. The work days were 8 hours long but often there was downtime for networking within the firm as well as getting to sit in on the annual meeting."
