I was an intern for this firm. I prepared tax workpapers for the tax accountants and scanned them into the database.
I learned a lot about the different tax papers involved in the tax accounting process.
Management was great. They took an interest in what their employees did and weren't afraid to socialize with them. That being said, I felt like the employees themselves had formed themselves into groups. The accountants generally stayed away from those in processing and, from what I saw, from anybody who wasn't in their group. Other than that, people were generally nice to each other and were definitely hard-working.
Regarding the actual work I did, the vast majority of my time was spent sifting through tax workpapers and scanning documents into the database. I wish I could have seen what was being done with the information I was collating. However, I assume it was good for me to at least be exposed to the different tax documents.
The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know the people that I worked with. They were all very nice people and didn't look down on me for being an intern. I only wish that I had had more opportunities to get to know other people/accountants in the firm.
