A great view into the world of accounting.


Uppers

The pay was great. The people that I worked with were very nice and helpful.


Downers

There were times that I did not have much to do.


Advice to Potential Interns

Go in with an open mind. This is not one of the big 4 accounting firms, but the experience you have will be worthwhile.

An intense & fulfilling encounter with auditing financial institutions

There is a spirit of comradery instead of competition in the audit groups.

The training wasn't as helpful as it could have been in preparing me for the expectations of the audit groups I was working with.

Fun, challenging, and thorough.


Uppers

Getting real experience. Traveling. Planning a community service event without face to face interaction. Interacting with upper level employees of other companies. Interacting with managers and partners of the firm.


Downers

Inability to interact with other interns or hear about the other business units.


Advice to Potential Interns

I interviewed with Deloitte and KPMG. Although they might not have the big name, they care about their people and have an interview process unlike other firms. They're a unique alternative to the Big 4. Great work life balance.


Advice to Management

I think they could be more forward about how diversity plays a role in the firm outside of simply mentioning their "People Resource Networks."


Would You Recommend

Yes

Dual audit and tax internship balanced with high company morals and values with a fantastic group of coworkers.


Uppers

The best aspect of the internship for me, was the ability to do both audit and taxation functions. This gave me a better understanding of both business units, and helped me decide which facet I liked better. The second best aspect, was the fact that I had both a "coach" and a "buddy" to help me with anything I could possibly need. Ranging from career to personal advice, I felt so comfortable going to either of them with any issues that arised.


Downers

I liked absolutely everything about my internship. Everything exceeded my expectations.


Advice to Potential Interns

Throughout college, you take both taxation and audit classes. However, when an accounting firm asks you which business unit you prefer, how do you really know? Crowe Horwath gave me the opportunity to work on both sides, and decide for myself which unit I preferred, and I was able to make an educated decision.


Advice to Management

I believe that Crowe does an absolutely amazing job concerning all of the aforementioned issues. I feel incredibly valued at the company, and did not feel as if there was anything Crowe needed to improve upon. I could not be happier with the firm that I chose.

Challenging, but extremely rewarding


Uppers

High level of responsibility/decision making, direct interaction with various levels of client employees, and very friendly, helpful co-workers/managers.


Downers

Long hours and travel time away from home. However, this was expected working during busy season.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be prepared to be challenged and work very hard. Also, try to interact with clients as much as possible; you will learn as much, or more from client interaction as you will from your managers.


Advice to Management

Training was a bit light. I felt like I was lost for the first week or two.

Sowing seeds to reap tomorrow.


Uppers

My team, other employees I worked with, the pay, etc.


Downers

It was a large time commitment, but I expected that for busy season.


Advice to Potential Interns

This company actually cares about your future. They don't teach you to make their team or company look good. The genuinely want you to learn to make you successful.


Advice to Management

More interaction between teams, more company outings, etc.


Would You Recommend

Yes
