Getting to meet many people, developing technical knowledge in a short amount of time, working on interesting clients, seeing what day to day life is for a full-time associate.
The hours we worked made balancing work and life hard but I did learn ways to do it and I was very satisfied with my experience.
Advice to Potential Interns
My advice is go with an organization that has a great culture. While most companies mention the people aspect to attract candidates, the culture really does matter. You want to like who you work with and at PwC I love that there is a teamwork culture. I personally have seen people volunteer to stay late and help on a client that is not theirs. That shows that we are all in this together.
Advice to Management
I would say that more interaction between the different tax groups would be great because we are so divided most of the time, it would be a great networking opportunity.
