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.

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.

You will learn so much you'll have a hard time remember it all!
Grand Rapids, MI | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I really enjoyed working on teams in a collaborative environment. Everyone was eager and willing to help and teach. I also liked the sense of business across the firm.


Downers

There were times when I wasn't 'in the field' on audits, and things got slow for me in the office. It was a lot harder trying to find work when I was in the office because there wasn't a very effective way of communicating my availability to those who had work to hand-off.


Advice to Potential Interns

Ask lots of questions, have an open mindset, and don't be afraid to approach senior managers and/or partners!


Advice to Management

See second sentence of cons about communicating availabilty to those who have work to hand-off.

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.

A huge learning experience with an incredible firm.
Nashville, TN | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects were the traveling and my coworkers.


Downers

What I liked least about the internship was the long hours, but it was expected with working for an accounting firm during busy season.


Advice to Potential Interns

I would definitely tell people to look into this organization. The firm is very respectful of its employees and the firm is very team orientated.


Would You Recommend

Yes

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.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Success Opportunities Achievements Results Internship Program Offers Just That!
Sacramento, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects of the internship were getting to meet and work with many various individuals in the office, the atmosphere of the office, and experiencing the day-to-day work.


Downers

I didn't like how different managers had different expectations of the ways work papers were to be completed. I wish it was slightly more consistent.


Advice to Potential Interns

A candidate should really consider if they want a big firm or a smaller firm and location of the firm.


Would You Recommend

Yes
