Public Accounting Summer Camp
Charlotte, NC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The character building, networking opportunities, and real life experience.


Downers

I enjoyed every part of my internship.


Advice to Potential Interns

Great firm to work for because they truly care about their employees.


Sample Interview Questions

Why Elliott Davis?

Give me a time when you faced a difficult situation and how sis you handle it?


Advice to Management

I believe the firm needs to diversify and recruit heavily from other universities besides Clemson and USC.

This internship taught me more about public accounting than any college class ever could.
Columbia, SC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The experience gained from this internship is parallel to none. Elliott Davis doesn't make you go out and get coffee or make copies or do any of the other jobs that don't give you accounting experience. Instead, Elliott Davis throws you into the world of accounting with staff level work that you will be doing when you get out of college, which what all college graduates need in an internship.


Downers

I didn't like the fact that I didn't have the chance to get much client one-on-one interaction. I know this is because I don't have the experience yet but I still feel like it would have been great to do that.


Advice to Potential Interns

Elliott Davis is an organization that really takes care of you. They offer great benefits, pay and have a great family atmosphere within the office as well. You get to travel a little and you are not just sitting at a computer desk all day. I would recommend Elliott Davis to anybody wanting to pursue a career in public accounting.


Advice to Management

The one thing I think Elliott Davis could do better is to take the time to implement some kind of training before you are sent out to a client on an engagement. This would make interns ask less questions to seniors on the job and make the billable hours to client decline significantly.

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

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.


Would You Recommend

#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.

Elliott Davis' ENVISION is as close to being a full time employee as an intern can get while also being fun and helping the community
Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The internship provided the basis of what life is like as a first year staff, while also allowing for community service and development.


Downers

There were times during the internship when I ran out of things to do. During those times, I would walk around the office asking if anyone needed help. This was great because I had the opportunity to meet Elliott Davis employees I hadn't worked with before.


Advice to Potential Interns

Always be yourself and be willing to help, regardless of the task!


Would You Recommend

Yes
