“Meaningful, interesting analysis in a diversity of industries, capacities, and fields.”

My personal favorite part about the internship was the tremendous amount of effort put in by the recruiting/orientation staff to make the experience as rewarding as possible. They planned different social events, challenges, and tried to get the intern class to interact as much as possible. This was actually one of the benefits of a virtual internship; I got to interact with interns from different offices that I would not have met otherwise. At the same time, staffing did a great job making sure I was on cases and kept busy so that my time would be put to meaningful and productive use. I think this is a good example of an overarching tenet of Cornerstone: the company genuinely cares about analyst learning. It is a place that feels very academic. It wants its employees to be curious, challenged, and always learning.


Because it was entirely virtual, I didn't have the opportunity to socialize as much with other analysts. Normally, the analysts go out to lunch together and form a tight knit community, which is something I missed out. This is no fault of Cornerstone's, but it was my least favorite part of the virtual internship.

Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure you like working with data. It is very data analysis heavy. You don't necessarily need to know the computer skills coming in (R, Excel), because the firm invests resources in teaching you, but you definitely need to want to look at numbers and try to figure out what they mean, and be okay doing several iterations of similar analysis until you find a meaningful conclusion.
