Internal Accounting Internship

4.0 of 5 stars

48306, MI | April 2015 | Former Intern

Uppers

Get experience with treasury and cash management
Pretty much sets you up for any internship within the company for the next summer

Downers

Hold your hand through projects a little too much.
Not much cognitive ability required for tasks

Comments

18/hour
A bit of an age gap for the Southfield east office for an intern, but great people none the less

Would You Recommend

Yes

Plante Moran offers a real life work experience, not an internship where you just fetch coffee. You gain valuable, relevant skills.

I jumped in with both feet, after a week of training I was already in the field working on clients.

Being able to see different levels of responsibility in the career path ahead of me.

There was no expectations of me coming in but I gained a valuable base knowledge of day to day activities of a full time accountant.

Downers

Honestly, I had a great internship. If I had to pick one thing that I liked least about the internship it would be... well I've sat here for 10 minutes and can't think of anything so I'll leave it at that.

Advice to Potential Interns

The culture here at Plante Moran, summed up by their motto, relatively "jerk-free" environment, is what we live by.

Sample Interview Questions

Describe in your life one time where you trained somebody.

Did you ever have any obstacles to overcome in the workplace and how did you overcome them?

Advice to Management

The training could be improved a little bit. We were thrown into the field with zero expectations and everything gets reviewed 3 times before so there's not a real reason to learn it all before you get to doing actual accounting work, but just more for an intern's peace of mind.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Work for Plante Moran!

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.

The clients, variety of experiences, intern outtings planned by HR,

Downers

Accounting work in general is not extremely exciting no matter where you work

Advice to Potential Interns

At Plante Moran you get a wide range of experiences including tax, audit, and consulting work. At other firms you may only get to see one type of client or work the entire year on one large company. You develop more as a professional by seeing a variety of situations.

Sample Interview Questions

interviewed 2 years ago - don't recall.

Advice to Management

Continue to keep hours low compared to competitors. Many look at public accountings at times insane hours and see Plante Moran as a positive within that.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Columbus, OH | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

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.

Sample Interview Questions

Tell me about a time you had to handle a number of different responsibilities at once.

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

Advice to Management

Keep being flexible: be willing to work with career changers.

I enjoyed the intern summit. It was good to have a a break from work and I really got to bond with the other interns in my office.

Downers

My least favorite part was intern presents.

Advice to Potential Interns

Go in with a positive attitude and try to meet as many people as you can.

Sample Interview Questions

I can't remember specific questions, but I do remember it being very laid back during all three interviews.

Advice to Management

Have everyone on the same page with software being used for different functions.

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.
