Come experience the care of Crowe Horwath - the care given to clients, employees, the environment, and more!
South Bend, IN | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The real life experience.


Downers

This particular internship (in the CAST departement) was still relatively new when I began, therefore, we lacked the proper training. However, we are now doing training on new topics almost every week.


Advice to Potential Interns

Crowe is competitive with their wages, especially if you have other offers on the table.

Crowe really cares about their employees, and I believe that is very important for long-term hapiness within a company.


Sample Interview Questions

Describe a time when something needed to be done and you had to step up and be the leader in the situation.



Why are you interested in Crowe Horwath?





Most questions were very specififc situational-type questions.


Advice to Management

The only issue I had with Crowe at the beginning was lack of training (but this was a new program). When Crowe realized this was a problem they did not waste any time in creating programs to help their employees. Other than that, I had no other issues and I view Crowe as my dream place to work.

Fast-paced learning with actual client data and output
Nashville, TN | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I was given actual projects right upon starting which threw me into the water of tax returns. There was very little work that most would consider "intern work". You will be highly utilized. You are also given a large amount of autonomy over your work and figuring things out.


Downers

I actually liked everything.


Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure that the office fits with you and that you feel welcomed and wanted.

Yes

Exposure to the company
Indianapolis, IN | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The company culture


Downers

I did not have enough work. The people who were in charge of me did not do a good job at communicating with me.


Advice to Potential Interns

Do not expect to be busy!


Advice to Management

Give the peer mentors more specific instructions on how to handle the interns. I had to go search for my peer mentor my first day because she never even came to meet me.

Tax Preparer, not Coffee Runner
San Francisco, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people. They really took the time to train and teach me, even when it slowed down their own work. They also tried to give me a large variety of work so I left feeling pretty confident in what I will be doing as a full time staff.


Downers

The work slowed down for a week or two about halfway through the internship and it was very hard to just sit at a desk for eight hours a day.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you're looking for an internship that will challenge and push you, but leave you much more knowledgeable about accounting, then Crowe is for you. Expect to do real work for real clients right off the bat, but you will never feel overwhelmed because the support system of the coworkers is amazing.


Sample Interview Questions

Name a role model of yours and how that person influenced you. Describe a challenge you faced in work or at school, and how you overcame it.


Would You Recommend

Yes

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.

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.

Work on Saturdays wasn't fun but necessary, maybe more rewards for that

Crowe S.O.A.R. Internship Gives Interns Opportunity to Shine
Indianapolis, IN | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I liked that I was able to work on some of the same projects that the full-time staff worked on. Everyone that assigned me work was willing to answer any questions I had, and I felt like I had all the support I needed to perform well. I felt that I was given a fair opportunity to demonstrate my skills and knowledge.


Downers

I would have liked to received more specific training that focused only on what my team worked on. I thought we received excellent training on the overview of the firm and our business units, but it would have been nice if some time would have been set aside to go over my team's specialty.


Advice to Potential Interns

Inform yourself on the possibilities for career development at Crowe. The firm is going through healthy growth, and the opportunities for you to grow as well are definitely there. When I interned with Crowe, I felt that I had all of the support I needed to perform well.


Sample Interview Questions

What is your greatest strength? What has been your favorite class? What role do you take when you're in a group of people?


Advice to Management

The training could have been more comprehensive. I would have liked to learn more about the team that I was going to join before I started actually working.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Second-time Crowe intern takes on Chicago for the summer and decides to return as a full-time employee and permanent resident!
Chicago, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Living in the city, working with cool people, and being spoiled with food and happy hours


Downers

It was boring sometimes. I was very disconnected from my peer liason and performance coach.


Advice to Potential Interns

This is a great organization. Crowe is perfect balance of a big, top ten firm with a small, mid-size feel.


Advice to Management

Organizing interns could be improved. I was supposed to be in one unit and got transferred to another my first week. It caused a little confusion throughout my internship.

Yes
