It's going to be a beautiful morning. It's going to be a beautiful day.
Boston, MA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people at PwC are incredible. I worked with individuals not only from across the country, but across the world. I formed relationships with students who had similar interests and hobbies, relationships that carried on into my full time position! I also was exposed to one of the largest and high profile client in our office, Goldman Sachs, and learned a ton about auditing, risk assurance, and valuation. Also, the firm took us to Disney World at the end of the intership! The trip to Disney World was one of the most amazing experiences in my life. I was surrounded by 800 working professionals, young and old alike, and brought behind the scenes of parks such as Epcot and Animal Kingdom to learn about teamwork, motivation, and perserverance. I wouldn't trade that week for the world.


Downers

I wish the internship lasted longer. I could have used one more week.


Advice to Potential Interns

You will work hard at PwC. You will also be exposed to the largest and most important firms in the world, while making friends for life.

If an intern's client is based out of a location other than that intern's home office, make sure to plan 1-2 weeks when that intern spend time in his/her home office. Consecutive weeks traveling is tiring.

The opportunity to explore all industry groups and the opportunity to network with people from different areas of focus and backgrounds.

At some clients, the level of work was not very challenging or interesting.

Building you own experience
Minneapolis, MN | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best part of the internship was the intern events that were planned in between the busy work hours. It was nice to be able to get to know other interns from different lines of service.


Downers

I would have enjoyed more time on the same client. Even though I liked bouncing around clients to get different exposure, I felt that staying on one client longer would have allowed me to get a better experience.


Advice to Potential Interns

PwC practices what they preach and my internship was above and beyond what I thought it would be.
