Uppers

The people, the culture, the work was great and challenging. I was pushed by the people I worked with and got to know a lot of people very well.

Downers

The fact that I had to leave and go back to school was not good.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be willing to step out of your comfort zone and ask a lot of questions. Get to know as many people as you can and be a likable person.

I did a case at a leadership event that was about making business decisions as a business adviser.

Advice to Management

There were a few offices that had three people in one office so it made it tough.

I was doing real work and was able to really contribute to the products we were delivering to our clients.

Downers

I didn't partcularly dislike anything.

Plante Moran has an exceptional commitment to making the intern experience a great one. I talked to many classmates that interned at a number of other firms (Big 4 and otherwise) and no one's experience sounded half as good as mine.

Tell me about a time you had to deal with meeting a tight deadline.

Intern Finds Meaning of Happiness at Plante Moran

5.0 of 5 stars

Chicago, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

How to choose? The networking chances, the work itself, and the fun activities like the Intern Summit, it all works together to create such a unique experience.

Downers

I think it would be neat if interns had a chance to check out other office locations during the duration of their internship. It would help people if they know that they want to work for Plante Moran but are unsure what location.

Advice to Potential Interns

Take advantage of all the opportunities you get here. Don't be afraid to be honest throughout the whole process. Plante Moran cares about their employees as human beings. They want the whole person to be successful, not just the employee side.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Best Summer of Work Ever

4.8 of 5 stars

Ann Arbor, MI | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The learning opportunities, the staff, the culture, the responsibility.

Downers

Nothing comes to mind that I didn't enjoy about the internship.

Advice to Potential Interns

When looking at public accounting firms, the pay is comparable between Plante and Big 4, so it really comes down to the differing experiences between the firms. Plante is unique because you will work on a huge variety of clients and have the opportunity to truly understand the full scope of their business, as opposed to a Big 4 client you may be on for months at a time and only audit Cash.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Amazing opportunity to hone leadership, technical and professional skills.

4.8 of 5 stars

Working with team members to accomplish a common goal. Always treated with respect and felt like my opinion mattered.

Not being able to see every project through-- only because I did not yet have the skill set/job responsibilities to finish every project.

Advice to Potential Interns

Great culture with a young environment. Easy transition from college to the work world.

The Intern Summit, shadowing managers and partners, the firm conference.

Sometimes the work would be slow - the summer is not the busiest time in auditing.

It is a great mid-size firm that will give you real world auditing experience without the high turnover and stress of the Big Four accounting firms.
