A Summer to Remember at Cohen

Since the day I walked through the doors for the Round Robin, I knew that Cohen & Company was the place I wanted to be this summer. The culture here is unbelievable. Everyone is interactive and willing to lend a helping hand whenever I need it. I have yet to come across someone who was rude or tried to talk down to me, and that is one of the big reasons why Cohen’s culture is incredible. Through communication at engagements or just talking in the office, they act as if there is no difference between an intern and a Manager. The company is full of great people which causes an incredible atmosphere in the office.

There are so many opportunities that Cohen provided me and the other interns with. Through these opportunities, we were able to connect with each other, other interns in the community, and community leaders in order to see the benefits and direction of the Cleveland area. (i)Cleveland Day was a huge hit and opened my eyes to the change occurring in the city. Who would have thought that in my internship I would have the opportunity to talk to Mayor Frank Jackson? Yeah, me neither, but it happened! (i)Cleveland has allowed me to meet Cleveland leaders and learn a lot about the emerging city that I had no clue about. Other activities intercompany related include the Happy Hours, the Cleveland Indians Game, and what is soon to be the Community Service Day. It will be nice to be able to get out of the office to spend time and get to know your co-workers while helping out the community. The Community Service Day honestly reflects on the type of company Cohen is.

With the way I was treated at Cohen and the opportunities they provided me throughout the summer, I cannot think of anything else that could have made this internship a better experience. Overall, this has been an enjoyable and unforgettable experience and I wish it did not have to end in a few weeks. I feel Cohen has enabled me to thrive and grow as a person, not only in the profession of accounting, but within the community too.
