    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Cohen Group as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Interesting work - opportunity to work on and contribute to a wide variety of client teams in various industries, ranging from aerospace to pharmaceuticals. Felt that work was meaningful; almost no administrative tasks to do with.
    - Robust mentorship - significant investment in interns by management and plentiful opportunities to interact with senior staff. Interns - particularly those with graduate degrees - are sometimes hired as full-time employees afterwards.
    - Summer speaker series - extremely rare opportunities to speak to standing senators, current ambassadors, and other DC luminaries was provided over the course of the internship
    - Friendliness - people were quite friendly and warm
    - Professional
    - Free snacks in pantry

    Cons

    The workload fluctuates from week to week - lulls in work are sometimes followed by a deluge of projects

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! I know that the interns really appreciate the effort to invest in them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Cohen Group (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I was contacted after applying online to do a phone interview the following week. After the phone screening, I was brought in for two separate in-person interviews, where I met the group I would be working with, as well as HR. The interviews themselves appeared to go well, and I followed up each time with a note of thanks, as well as any follow-up information they asked for. However, after being told I should be hearing an answer in the following weeks, I didn't hear back for over a month. When attempting to contact those I had interviewed, I just received the standard "we are still deliberating" response (note: this went on for another month), with a promise that they would get back to me soon with an answer. Eventually I just gave up trying to get a straightforward answer from them. Extremely unprofessional as well as rude to keep a candidate dangling like that rather than just being honest and forthright about going with another applicant.
