There is no place like Plante Moran
Auburn Hills, MI | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

"Family" like staffs and being uniquely treated


Downers

Because it was Summer intern, there is not much experience you would have gotten during the Winter


Advice to Potential Interns

If you really want to have a work environment that allows you to have better communication and interaction with surrounding staffs, the firm is an ideal place to work for. There is no need to worry about food as the firm will make sure you are fed up with loads of food!


Advice to Management

I hope that the firm can expand its active location in the states more toward the Southin the future. Because it is only limited in the mid-central area, public awareness is still the firm's weakness.

Internship that actually gives something back to Interns
Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

-The variety of people you work with/exposed to

-The pay is very generous

-Actual hands on experience, not just given busy work to do


Downers

-Didn't get a chance to work on jobs with my team partner a lot


Advice to Potential Interns

If you wish to be treated like a valued employee and given a chance to show/build upon your skills rather than to just be handed work and treated like a number rather than a person, choose Plante Moran. Plante goes to great lengths to give back to their employees, whether it be random girl scout cookies or just a little goodie bag during tax season, they like to share their thanks for your hard work.

The greatest learning experience I have received thus far in my career.
Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

People, culture, work life balance


Downers

I didnt feel like I had adequate software training and i would've liked a more simplified and concise training instructions.


Advice to Potential Interns

It is important to note that Plante Moran is a public accounting firm therefore long hours will be required especially in busy season however compared to many other public accounting firms they offer a good work life balance and they rely on you being responsible and communicating well to your in-charge when completing assignments. Plante Moran is about their culture and the people and want someone who is able to work well with others and love their job.


Advice to Management

I believe that Plante Moran does an excellent job of these things already.

An internship that you will work hard and create relationships that will last after your internship and into your full-time career.
Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

In the middle of the internship we had an Intern Summit where all the interns firm-wide got together and were able to bond as well as share experiences from their internships. In addition to this big event, the daily interactions with the engagement teams proved to be valuable in the development throughout the internship.


Downers

Because I was only on an engagement for about a week at a time, I was not able to completely see the engagement from beginning to end. It would have been nice to be able to see the complete engagement but with such a short amount of time it was not possible.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be sure to have an open mind and eager to learn because you will learn something ever day during the internship. Also, be sure to make relationships and use mentors to develop both personally and professionally as this can help to progress more quickly through your career.

The Perfect Fit
Detroit, MI | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The culture, the people, the work, our firm conference, team outings, partner lunches, and the intern summit.


Downers

Summer is a slow work season for public accounting firms.


Advice to Potential Interns

Push yourself to move outside of your comfort zone and to really see if this firm and the type of work you will be doing is right for you.

A Summer Filled with Fun, Learning and Personal Growth
Ann Arbor, MI | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people I worked with made the internship what it was and helped make the work even more enjoyable. Also, all of the other events that we participated in - they made us feel like we were already a part of the family.


Downers

There wasn't really anything that I didn't like about the internship.


Advice to Potential Interns

Ask as many questions as you can think of! Everyone is very willing to help and it's the best way to learn as much as you can while they are still expecting you to not know very much.


Advice to Management

The only thing would be diversity but I know they are already working hard at making it a more diverse workplace and are constantly dedicated to creating a diverse work environment.
