As an Intern I felt just like a full time first-year staff.
Columbus, OH | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Each intern is required to complete an "intern presents" presentation in front of the intern's entire office staff. Such an opportunity to speak publicly and to be recognized was enjoyable. I also enjoyed the "intern summit," where all interns travel for a couple of days to a city (one of mine was Chicago) and went on scavenger hunts/ engaged in community service/ completed projects with other interns.


Downers

There was nothing about the internship program that I did not like. None.


Advice to Potential Interns

Often people are swayed to work at the Big 4 in public accounting. However, at Plante I was exposed to opportunities with much more responsibility in comparison to friends who began their careers at other firms. Think about what clients each firm has and where you will be the best fit, not on what others might publicize.

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.


Advice to Potential Interns

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.

Best Summer of Work Ever
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.

Couldn't have asked for more.

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.

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

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

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