- “My experience during this internship was amazing. One of the reasons I was interested in Cohn Reznick was because of the workplace culture, and I do not regret my decision. The culture and overall environment here are so welcoming, I was genuinely surprised how welcoming everyone was. We are required to work 30 hours a week and be in our local office 2 times a week. At Cohn Reznick, being able to maintain a work/life balance is quite easy. With the flexibility of working from home and with easy communication with your teams, it is easy to step away from the computer and the company encourages you to do so.”
- “Everyone is super nice and approachable at the firm. The firm culture and environment is very engaging and welcoming. I found it easy to talk to my coworkers and have a flexible schedule because everyone is very understanding. I am required to work 32.5 hours a week Monday through Thursday. I can start and finish work whenever I choose which allows me to have a positive work/life balance since even as an intern I have a pretty good control over my schedule as long as I complete my work.”
- “For a large firm, the people really prided themselves on a family culture which made for an easy adjustment to working in a big city with a big firm.”

Getting Hired Here
- “I had one in-person interview with the nearby office close to my university, then had a virtual interview with one of the partners of the office that I wanted to work from. The interactions were very laid back, I felt like I was making a friend rather than being interrogated. They were very interested in my personal life and asked questions that reflected what they were looking for in an employee.”
- “Selection standards are decent, only did one interview, and it wasn't that difficult. The partner I interviewed with was friendly and made me feel comfortable (interview was also virtual), recruiter was very personable and reactive—didn't have to wait long for a response.”
- “The recruiter did well at answering my questions and communicating how friendly the firm's culture is and how easy it is to navigate different fields. The interview was of intermediate difficulty and pushed you to answer questions about your character and capacity for learning from prior experiences.”
- “Two phone screenings with recruiters before scheduling an interview with a partner. Partner was more interested in getting to know my story, attitude, and career aspirations than testing my technical knowledge. Left the interview with a good understanding of CohnReznick.”
