I would say RSM in a good place to kickstart a career in accounting. The firm provides a clear path to promotions and advancing your career. If you start in public accounting you will be able to move in any directions whether you want to stay in public accounting or move into the private sector. In my short time as an intern I was able to connect with a wide variety of individuals in the accounting field and I truly believe it is best to start your career in public accounting and from there there will be plenty of options moving forward.
I believe RSM is an excellent place to kickstart your career. Although it is not considered a Big 4 accounting firm, the firm is still massive and has many publicly traded clients as well as small mom and pop stores. My favorite part about the internship was that I dealt with so many clients in a short period of time. In 8 weeks, I audited almost 6 different clients and did a broad range of work. I don't think I would have gotten this experience anywhere else because usually you are stuck on one assignment for weeks on end. I encourage everyone to explore the different opportunities that RSM has.
Definitely. The exposure you will get in such period of time is so valuable, along with the fact that at RSM you are set up with individuals around you who truly want to see you succeed at the firm as well as in your career.
RSM is a great company with great people. From my experience, I believe that it is a great place to start a career. The supportive culture and room for upward growth contribute to a positive work atmosphere.
