Amazing opportunity to hone leadership, technical and professional skills.
Cleveland, OH | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

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.

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

Opportunity to learn and experience public accounting
Chicago, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Real life experience - when I went out on a job they didn't even tell the client I was an intern. It was a great opportunity to meet other interns and network with them. The full time offer was incredible and I felt ahead of the game when I started full time because I had the internship experience.


Downers

My internship was in the summer so I got no tax experience and there was a lot of downtime where we had to walk around and look for our own work. It would have been nice to have a little more structure in my schedule because I was only scheduled on 3 clients for a 9 week internship.


Advice to Potential Interns

Plante Moran provides great opportunities and they have great structure to help you thrive in your career.

A balance of good work and great people
Chicago, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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


Downers

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


Advice to Potential Interns

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.


Would You Recommend

Yes

I came into the internship looking for a job and I left with a career
Toledo, OH | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

The best aspects were real life experience, good pay, flex time, inviting culture, and great people


Downers

Long busy season hours


Advice to Potential Interns

Be prepared to step right in and feel like a full-time employee. If you accept the offer, you will learn so much more than a book can teach you.

Great experience, learned a ton, great hourly pay as well
Cincinnati, OH | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Learned an unbelievable amount in a short amount of time


Downers

Lots of hours, but that is what the industry is, so you should already know what you are getting yourself into going in.


Advice to Potential Interns

They treat you as if you are a first year staff, not an intern, so you learn very quickly. There isn't much to distinguish first years and interns, so this lets you learn very quickly because you are treated the same. All the overtime pay is fantastic too.


Would You Recommend

Yes
