“When you start at Blue & Co., you really hit the ground running and learn in real-world settings. If you want a lot of hands-on-training, then this is the place for you. When I started, everyone made sure to stop by and introduce themselves, and, even today, they continually check to make sure that I understand the ‘why’ behind what we are doing for our clients. If you are looking for a firm that values the relationship between all levels of people in the company, Blue & Co. is also the place for you. I have easy access to senior managers and directors to ask questions, and I routinely work beside them at clients. This is important because it helps open you up to a wealth of knowledge that sets Blue & Co. apart from other firms.”

“During my time as a tax intern in the Bloomington office, I learned so much and even got to collaborate with individuals from the Columbus, IN and Seymour, IN offices. Best of all, I had a coach and co-workers who always made time to help me, answer my questions, and address my concerns.
This is why I truly feel that Blue & Co.’s values statement not only applies to client service, but to the treatment of employees and interns as well. I am very grateful for my time at Blue & Co.!”Elizabeth Zimnawoda
