What stuck out to me is how negative some of the workers are. As an intern, I came in expecting most of the employees there to like their job and to be positive in a stressful environment. I was wrong. I experienced lots of gossip, people complaining about their pay, and negativity about certain work assignments. There are some great workers there, but unfortunately there also just as many bad ones. RSM seems like it was a good firm when it was Cole and Reed, but ever since the change to RSM a lot of the workers seem bitter. Lastly, when it came down to offers for interns, recruiting told us that they would contact us after our internship ended. A month passed by and some of the interns got a call from recruiting saying they got offers. So I reached out to recruiting, the same day and they told me I didn't get an offer. I thought it was messed up that I had to be the one to reach out to recruiting to hear if I got a response or not. I also think it was messed up, because I waited a month thinking I was getting an offer and wasn't going to hear from them unless I had contacted them. Most internships let their interns know if they got offers at the end of their internship. This is definitely something RSM has to fix. There are good workers there, but in a way I'm glad I didn't get an offer, mostly because of the environment!! One thing I will say though is that RSM tries to incorporate a better work life balance than most firms.
