Learning, collaborating and growing together into the employees of tomorrow.
Grand Rapids, MI | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people, the opportunity to work on significant areas, mentoring, office atmosphere, hour flexibility


Downers

The hours were long which was hard at times but I learned so much that I wouldn't take it back


Advice to Potential Interns

Crowe is a wonderful place to work. My experience was amazing. For me it was the perfect size because the atmosphere was not high-pressure or cut-throat and I got to work on some noteworthy projects.

Interns learn as they go and find out learning is more fun than working.
Knoxville, TN | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Learning experience, professional growth, networking


Downers

long hours during tax season, not enough training


Advice to Potential Interns

Don't worry too much! Do your best and ask questions


Sample Interview Questions

Why should we hire you over someone else? Describe a time you made a mistake and how you corrected it.


Advice to Management

More time for training - in the beginning have a brief overview of the workpaper system and how to operate the electronic sysems, lost time waiting on staff to help since they were too busy

Supported Immersion in the Industry of Your Choice
Chicago, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The company culture is awesome. They know how to work hard and play hard because work-life balance is extremely important to them. They care about their people and are invested in your development both professionally and just as a person.


Downers

I am looking for a job with more creative outlets so this is not the position for me. But for someone looking for a position in an accounting firm and a corporate setting, you can't get any better.


Advice to Potential Interns

It was a fantastic summer experience and they recruit their full time employees very heavily from their interns.


Advice to Management

More personal interaction throughout the day. Cubicles were good for focusing, but made it difficult to meet others and collaborate.

I would describe my experience with Crowe Horwath a company with a family environment.
Chicago, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects of my internship were the competitive pay and the experience gained from on the job activates. From week to week I was working on relevant client work.


Downers

What I liked least was the fact that I was working with/on clients that I didn’t get a lot of exposure to in school. We worked mostly with banks and financial institutions instead of manufacturing like we learn with in school.


Advice to Potential Interns

Try and get as much exposure to banks and financial institutions as you can. Learn how banks work.


Sample Interview Questions

During the interview process, the first couple of interviews (HR interviews) were your basic questions asking you to describe a situation you have been put in relevant to problem solving. As the interview process got farther along, the questions got more detailed to account specific questions.


Advice to Management

As far as I know, Crowe does a very good job in terms of compensation, employee retention in terms of hiring out of internships, diversity and promotion opportunities for its employees. I couldn’t make any recommendations in terms of making these areas more competitive as I believe they already are.

Working on real tax returns, not having to do grunt work, great training

I just didn't like having down time


Advice to Potential Interns

Ask any questions you have, people are always willing to help.

Great Opportunity to Travel and Work as a Staff Consultant
Dallas, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I was treated as a staff consultant, and was expected to do actual work. I got to interview and present to clients. I had the opportunity to travel to a variety of new cities, and got to know my coworkers extremely well!


Downers

Nothing! It was great! :)


Advice to Potential Interns

A lot of people looking at accounting and consulting internships tend to strive for the 'big 4'. Well, at Crowe (a top 10 firm), you have the same opportunities as a Big 4 firm but with a smaller firm feel. You get to know your coworkers better, and a lot of us are not stuck at the same client for as long of a time. Over the course of the internship, I got to see a variety of different projects so I know what I would like to do in the future!

New Intern learns a lot, Still has long way to go
Springfield, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I enjoyed the people I got to work with and I learned more in three months than I ever imagined possible.


Downers

I didn't mind the long hours, but I lived over an hour from the office so it made some days pretty long.


Advice to Potential Interns

I'm a quick learner and I understand everyday there is something new to learn. I am well organized and not afraid to ask questions.
