The Road Ahead


Uppers

being able to interact with clients and do real client work. I was able to learn so much during the internship.


Downers

I wish there would have been more clients I could have gone out to.


Advice to Potential Interns

Don't be scared to ask questions- they don't expect you to know how to do most of the work you're given. Try your best, but definitely ask if you need to. Make the best of the experience- Get to know the shareholders, senior managers, etc., as well as the staff accountants so you can see if you'd be happy in the work environment.

Full Time Job with a REAL Work-Life Balance


Uppers

getting to go out on the client, office socials, interacting with other people in the firm, and always being kept busy with something meaningful to do instead of just busy work. The ending retreat to the beach provided by the firm was a plus too.

Nothing comes to mind.


Advice to Potential Interns

Don't be nervous going into the internship! Everyone was once in the same spot you were in so it's okay to not completely know what is going on. Just have a willingness to learn and enjoy what you're doing.

By interning at Elliott Davis, you will get a wide exposure to many different clients, allowing you to find what interests you most.


Uppers

Being able to do meaningful, staff-level work for a variety of different industries and clients.


Downers

Sometimes you would have an overwhelming amount of responsibilities with too many people having you work on different projects. Prioritizing who's work came first and managing expectations was sometimes a challenge.


Advice to Potential Interns

Try to get to know people and do work for as many different people as possible.


Advice to Management

Try to make training a little more engaging. Current training requirements are somewhat mundane.

I had a great time as an intern for Elliott Davis and I learned a lot.


Uppers

The ability to ask questions whenever I needed too. My last job caused me to figure out a lot on my own so everybody's openness really made my internship mostly stress free.


Downers

We were so busy during tax season that it got hard to learn from my mistakes. I was just told to fix them without a real explanation. We are really busy though so I understand, but that was the most difficult part of my experience.


Advice to Potential Interns

Do not be afraid to ask as many questions as possible and meet as many people as you can. It really helps you out.


Advice to Management

I honestly have no idea. They do such a great job of taking care of us that I don't know what I would want them to change.
