Adam C.
2021 Accounting Intern

They are consistently ranked one of the top accounting firms to work for. I clicked with a lot of the people that work with WW, lots of friendly people. I was provided opportunities to move around in different accounting fields (Tax, CAS, audit) that I felt was helpful in ultimately determining the direction I wanted to go after I earned my degree.
