Spectacular opportunities for those that want to work hard

5.0 of 5 stars

Dallas, TX | April 2015 | FORMER INTERN

Uppers

Working with, and learning from, the highest caliber people. The USLT shadow experience where I was able to spend a day with CFO and Vice Chair of the firm. The vast amount of experience gained in such relatively little time.

Downers

I would have loved more client interaction although I would not consider this a significant "downer". If you think you can show up as an intern and run the show, this is not the place for that kind of ego.

Comments

Hard work and networking. You will have many that got in because of the school and program that they are affiliated with that do not take initiative. Be proactive a visible in your intentions and future plans.

An opportunity to Grow

5.0 of 5 stars

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.

Challenging, Rewarding Internship with the Top Public Accounting Firm

4.8 of 5 stars

Dallas, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

My internship offered a realistic look at a full-time career with PwC. I had real and challenging work, and my teammates wanted to challenge me, but still provide helpful coaching so I never felt overwhelmed or frustrated. Moreover, I had lots of social experiences during my internship, as well as through Launch, the internship capstone trip to DisneyWorld.

Downers

The hours were demanding, but my team had great flexibility to make the workload as easy as possible.

Advice to Potential Interns

During the interview process, ask employees directly what the benefits of PwC are over the competitors. They have great, concrete answers that I didn't hear when I asked other firms the same question. PwC is the top-tier firm, and they treat interns as valued team members.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great experience - treated like a salaried employee
