An opportunity to Grow
Chicago, IL | November 2014 | Former Intern


Uppers

The best aspects of my internship was that PwC invested in my own growth. PwC sent me to a 3 day leadership conference while still being paid to develop my leadership skills. This summer they also gave me the opportunity to work at a charity of my choice as part of the Intern Loan Program. The program allowed me to follow a passion of working with schools and using my other major. Though I will not have a career in education, the experience allowed me to expand my mindset and perspective on the world.


Downers

The worst aspects of my internship had to do with not being able to work more than 40 hours a week. I was participating in an office case competition and I needed to log more than 40 hours in a week and the HR was upset. They wanted me to have some balance, but they did not allow me to fully pursue something I was interested in.


Comments

Be yourself and see if the culture is for you. It is a family style culture in a large company that allows the opportunity to grow and establish your roots in a particular area.

PwC culture reflects the fact that employees take their work seriously but not themselves.

So many events and people who were sincerely invested in my success!

Too short! And not enough work.

A Memorable Learning Experience that will Assure You that You Chose the Right Major
Indianapolis, IN | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

People

Ability to learn so much in a little over 2 months

Pay


Downers

The hours can become a lot but that is what allowed me to learn so much


Advice to Potential Interns

This prestigious firm treats its employees so well to ensure that their job experience is nothing short of remarkable.


Sample Interview Questions

Describe a time you led a group through a problem in order to reach a solution.

What is your worst characteristic?

What made you want to do public accounting?


Advice to Management

Sometimes I felt like their were a few too many e-learns which are videos that help in regards to training. Sometimes it seemed overwhelming in addition to all the hours I worked. However, even though it was a lot, they truly did help and they were very interesting. It may be helpful if the e-learns were shortened a tad bit.

The least "intern" like internship (aka no coffee runs and copies)
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I felt that I truly understand what the work level of a first year associate looked like rather than just doing coffee runs and making copies. I learned ALOT of valuable information during my 8 weeks with PwC.


Downers

Extremely long hours during the second quarter close.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be positive, open to constructive criticism, and accept every task with a smile.


Sample Interview Questions

Describe your greatest strength/weakness, tell me about yourself, challenging group situation.


Advice to Management

"flex hours" were not as flexible as they let on so a way to really make employees feel that they can benefit from flex fridays etc.
