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.

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.

Detroit, MI | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

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

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.

Would You Recommend

Yes

I came into the internship looking for a job and I left with a career

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

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.

Would You Recommend

The best internship experience ever

The flexibility, the people, the work basically everything.

Downers

The only thing that I didn't like was my commute because I live far from the office.

Advice to Potential Interns

Plante Moran is a great place to be. Always be willing to learn and take on challenges.

Uppers

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.
