Well-Rounded Experience in the Many Facets of Technology


Uppers

My internship had many great aspects, the best being position experience and team involvement. As an intern on my team, I was able to experience several different roles (Project Manager, Business Systems Analyst, Quality Analyst). Several different people acted as my managers and gave me insight into their projects and positions within the team. Being on the team in general was also a great experience. The team involved me in weekly meetings, included me in discussions, expected my participation, and even included me on a team outing where we spent a day at a local museum.


Downers

Sometimes there wasn't work to do. There may be lags in projects or people may be overloaded with work. This depends on your team and was a minor issue.


Advice to Potential Interns

Let your managers know you can take on more work. If you don't ask, they won't give you more. I have rarely heard of an intern having too much work because the managers do not want to overload you. Do not rush you work, keep good quality, ask for more when you're done if you are not handed another assignment.


Advice to Management

None

Downers

I think this internship could have been improved with a review closer to the start date. This would allow interns to take better advantage of their first five weeks.


Advice to Potential Interns

More than just a place to deposit your money, PNC offers opportunities in invesment banking, wealth management, and sales and trading.


Uppers

PNC has the benefits of operating like a boutique day to day and as a bulge bracket bank in terms of its role within the financial industry.


Downers

I think the recruiting process is somewhat flawed in that they interview for very different positions together. (retail banking and investment banking for example)


Advice to Potential Interns

Don't follow the crowd. Chasing the same banks/positions as everyone else just because everyone else is chasing those positions keeps you from exploring which opportunities are best fit for you which sets you back in the long run.

The PNC Internal Audit Internship was an excellent opporunity to get hands-on experience in the Audit field


Uppers

Feeling like a part of the team, not just getting coffee or faxing documents. I performed many of the same tasks that the full-time employees performed, which made me feel like I as actually contributing.


Downers

Sometimes the work is tedious, but that is the nature of the beast which is audit.


Advice to Potential Interns

PNC has a great company culture, consisting of employees who really care about what they do, and inspire you to care as well.

A great way to expand your knowledge and gain insight into different areas of the financial service industry.


Uppers

I appreciated that I got exposed to many different areas of the bank and I was given ownership of the projects I completed. I was never bored and felt that my work had worth and benefit for my manager and team. I was trusted with important projects and brought along to client calls.


Downers

There isn't anything I didn't like about the internship.


Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure that you network and utilize the resources around you. Now is the best time to ask any questions and put yourself out there. I have learned that it is important to have a manager or mentor who is involved in your development and success as your experience is what you make of it.
