What really makes CS&L stand out is their firm culture. The firm culture is about fostering teamwork and growth for every staff member. That was more than evident during my internship. As an intern, almost every task I was given was a foreign concept to me. There were days where I would have pages of questions and I could go to ANYONE for help. If someone was available, they instantly tried to help. If they didn’t know the answer, they helped get me to the person who did. I never felt like I was all alone, trying to do all this work or figure out all these processes by myself. I felt supported and was never afraid to ask for help, or to try something and get it wrong. I felt extremely appreciated during my internship. The partners thanked us regularly for our hard-work. The firm provided outlets to help everyone get through busy season. We had lunches provided, fun socials, weekly workouts, and other events happening during our workday to help us break away from the daily grind. My experience interning for CS&L was better than anything I could have imagined. I went from wondering if I could get what I needed from public accounting to knowing I just needed the right firm.
