A wonderful summer, learning more than I thought possible and having a great time doing it.
Greenville, NC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

All the really fun summer activities that made me feel like I wasn't missing out on my summer. Being given challenging work that kept me interested.

Research was my least favorite part of the internship although I understand that in the field of accountancy research is required in order to keep up with new rules and be able to solve all the different issues you are confronted with on a daily basis.

Get experience in accounting with a firm that has great people, huge growth potential, and a great work-life balance.
Columbia, SC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Getting quality hands-on experience with real clients while working around friendly people. The activities planned for interns that included social events and community service events were terrific.


Downers

One thing that would strengthen the internship program is to have more formal feedback throughout. For example, having each intern meet with someone to learn how they are doing as a whole would be good.


Advice to Potential Interns

Absorb as much as you can. Be friendly and introduce yourself to people around the office.

Yes

Incredible Learning Experience
Charlotte, NC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The high level clients I was allowed to work on with the full time staff members. The year end trip to Charleston. The philanthropy projects we were allowed to do throughout the summer.


Downers

I do not have a response for this item.


Advice to Potential Interns

Get involved, meet new people, and have fun!


Sample Interview Questions

Tell me about a time when you had to work with someone who is not thought of as "easy to get along with".


Advice to Management

I enjoyed all aspects of the program, I am not sure I can say there is a specific area that needed attention or could improve.

Yes

Transformative
Columbia, SC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects of the internship were the people I worked with, flexibility with my hours (especially during school), the amount of information I learned, one on one guidance, accessibility to high ranking coworkers, and of course, wonderful pay.


Downers

The only negative I can say about the internship was the lack of work at certain points in the internship. Some days I didn`t have work to do, but I was able to study for the CPA exam or my classes, which isn`t a bad deal at all. More or less grasping at straws with this one.


Advice to Potential Interns

Meet as many people as you can, develop relationships with these people, and pick their brains as much as you can. There are so many people at this office who relish the opportunity to help mentor you and guide you.


Sample Interview Questions

I was actually told to ask them questions, which is often more useful in learning about a potential employee. Students are trained on what to say more often than not. Having the potential employee ask questions is more revealing than a cookie-cutter answer supplied to them by an institution.


Advice to Management

Keep doing what you`re doing.


Would You Recommend

Yes

#1 Internship Experience
Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Getting to know everyone and seeing so many things that I learned in school be put into practice.


Downers

That it didn't last longer.


Advice to Potential Interns

The people and culture at Elliott Davis are great. The work experience is fun, but also challenging, which creates the perfect combination.


Sample Interview Questions

My interview consisted of getting to know several of the employers at Elliott Davis. In conversation, they asked questions, such as:

"What are your plans for the future, over the next year, 5 years, 10 years."

"What type of organizations are you involved in and what do you do within those organizations."


Advice to Management

My experience was great.

Great Experience with Great People
Augusta, GA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects of the internship was the company culture. Everyone there was smart and capable while taking a particular interest in helping the interns learn and grow. The firm scheduled lots of social time outside of work to give interns the opportunity to get to know others in the office and tune into the firm culture. There was also a lot of mentorship. The firm was very intentional by pairing interns with a CPA that they regularly meet with and get to ask questions.


Downers

There was very little I did not like about this internship. I guess I would have liked a little more experience with different types of tax returns.


Advice to Potential Interns

This company has the ideal accounting firm environment. It has the resources and depth of a large firm with the feel and mentorship of a small firm.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Want the salary and client experiences of the Big-4 employees with the community of a smaller firm? Check out Elliott Davis!
Columbia, SC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Pay, team building activities, happy hours, mentorship programs, community service.


Downers

Sometimes there wasn't work for us to do.


Advice to Potential Interns

Elliott Davis actually upholds the promises it makes, such as competitive salaries, career development and mentoring, work/life balance, etc.


Sample Interview Questions

Tell me three things you do outside of the business school.


Advice to Management

Training for the interns needs to be revamped. The days spent in Greenville were pretty much useless because it was too much technical information all at once. Technical training should be done on the office level so that interns can learn the procedures of various offices while working on actual clients. Additionally, each office should think harder about what work they have available for interns to do. If you only have enough work for 2 interns, don't hire 5!

Elliott Davis's Envision is the best internship available for students looking to go into public accounting.
Charleston, SC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The culture


Downers

I loved it all.


Advice to Potential Interns

Definitely pursue a internship with Elliott Davis because the company is green and the truly care about their employees. Also, the internship program includes much more than just doing client work. An intern gets to meet with all the positions in the company through lunches and happy hours. There is also a beach trip at the end to hang out with inters from other offices which is a blast.


Advice to Management

Everything was done perfectly.

Yes

Superior Company Culture, Superior Work Experience
Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I would say that my exposure to Elliott Davis's company culture and their employees were the best aspects of the internship. An employee told me during the internship that public accounting is basically the same wherever you go, so you really have to enjoy the company culture and the people you work with. I really believe this to be true and Elliott Davis really proved to me that their company culture fits well with my personality and I enjoyed everybody I got the chance to work with.


Downers

There was nothing that I would change about the internship experience. I am sure that if I did have an issue, management would have quickly taken my suggestion and changed anything that I did not like.


Advice to Potential Interns

I would tell a prospective candidate to be prepared to work hard, but also be prepared to enjoy their time at Elliott Davis. Through countless socials, lake days, beach trips, and kayaking trips, there is always something fun to look forward to. Even though I was working, I had a blast because I enjoyed the work I was doing and everyone that I was working with. Elliott Davis really values their employees and it shows in everything that they do.
