Given my past experience working at a different firm, I felt that Welch was my best option because of the importance that they place on maintaining a work-life balance. At all of the networking events, the representatives from Welch were very personable and gave off a great impression to me. So far, my experience has been very positive. The staff have been extremely supportive and helpful throughout all of my tasks/engagements. All members of the team, regardless of their level at the firm, are equally approachable.”
Isaac, 2019 co-op student
I originally chose Welch because of the variety of work I would be exposed to, as well as the welcoming work environment. After joining as a co-op student I realized that my expectations were right, and that I was getting to work on many different types of clients and engagements; furthermore, I was working on them with a team that supported me. By doing both of my co-ops at Welch and now being full-time, my skills have grown exponentially stronger and so has my relationship with my colleagues, which is the key to fostering a healthy, productive work environment.

I chose Welch because of the people I would have the opportunity to work with and the comradery present at the firm. I believe that the accounting tasks that get completed are similar in all accounting firms so, for me, choosing a firm with great people and management that supports my path for the CPA designation was really key. So far, I have had the privilege to work on various types of engagements for private businesses & nonprofit organizations that has enhanced my accounting knowledge.
Bruke, Staff Accountant
Before I chose a firm for my co-op terms, I was able to visit [many] firms of all sizes; but I only felt that vibe/connection with Welch. At Welch networking/office events that I attended, most of their staff remembered me, made me feel comfortable and answered all of my questions about the workplace. At Welch, I get to work on my own files from beginning to end. Furthermore, I am able to do audit field work, solidify my team work skills, improve my time management skills, and more. Welch gives a lot back to the community, helps their staff reach their goals and provides a great work environment.
