Great real-life experience


Uppers

The best aspect of this internship was seeing what it is truly like working in the world of accounting and experiencing how vigorous the work is.


Downers

There is nothing that i did not like about this internship.


Advice to Potential Interns

The one piece of advice i could give is always bring your best effort to work with you every day. Hard work goes a long way and I think that people notice that more than you think.

Crowe set me up for success


Uppers

Interns were given real responsibilities and treated just like first-year staff. You're given audit work to do and the staff teach you the skills you need to complete it. It's never easy diving into a new job, and as a college student jumping into a complex work-load, it's comforting knowing that they're there to help. They don't expect you to know everything when you first walk through the door. Crowe invested as much in me as I did in them.


Downers

Long hours can be rough at first. But at least as an intern you're getting paid hourly!


Advice to Potential Interns

Find an organization that invests as much (if not more) in you, as you invest in the company. And choose a company you mesh well with in terms of values & the people you work with. If you're there just for a paycheck or to have a good corporate headline on your resume until you find a new job, you could have a pretty miserable couple months or years. Even the long hours during busy season don't seem as bad if you like what you do and the people you work with.

Intern gets opportunity to perform actual audit procedures


Uppers

The best aspects were the diversity of the clients, and the amount of actual audit work that I was given the opportunity to work on.


Downers

down time was very boring


Advice to Potential Interns

Opportunity is self-driven, and make your own opportunities. If you want to do something, speak up, because nobody knows what you're thinking.


Advice to Management

Attempt to schedule interns more fully throughout their time, and possibly more after-hour group activities, although understanding it did take place during the traditional slow period in the summer.

Yes

Exceeding expectations


Uppers

Client interaction, working with engagement teams in the field, interacting with the other interns


Downers

Not much feedback throughout regarding my performance


Advice to Potential Interns

You'll gain real world experience working on teams and interacting with client. Out in the field you are treated as a first year staff rather than an intern. The work is challenging but there is a great support system around you.


Advice to Management

Give periodic feedback throughout the internship. Clarify and enforce the performance manager-intern and peer liason-intern roles and expectations.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Advice to Potential Interns

Come in with an open mind, do what you are told, and don't be afraid to ask questions and put yourself out there.


Advice to Management

Give the perspective employee an idea of which clients they would be working on in particular.

An internship with the Centralized Audit Services Team at Crowe helped me find my place in accounting.


Uppers

As opposed to many other audit interns, I did not have to travel. This made family life a real option during busy season. In addition, the leadership at Crowe was very responsive to questions and assisted me in learning many new skills. The training we attended as interns is the same as the training given to any first year staff. At Crowe this is because being chosen as an intern means leadership really is already looking to develop you to join in the near future full time.


Downers

The biggest drawback to the internship was the hours. During busy season, an audit intern is expected to work Saturdays and works around 50-60 hours a week.


Advice to Potential Interns

Working at Crowe is enjoyable. The willingness of more experienced collegues all the way up to the firm partners to help and teach is great. The atmosphere is one of teamwork with set goals to accomplish.
