Columbia, SC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Getting quality hands-on experience with real clients while working around friendly people. The activities planned for interns that included social events and community service events were terrific.

Downers

One thing that would strengthen the internship program is to have more formal feedback throughout. For example, having each intern meet with someone to learn how they are doing as a whole would be good.

Advice to Potential Interns

Absorb as much as you can. Be friendly and introduce yourself to people around the office.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Transformative

4.8 of 5 stars

Columbia, SC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best aspects of the internship were the people I worked with, flexibility with my hours (especially during school), the amount of information I learned, one on one guidance, accessibility to high ranking coworkers, and of course, wonderful pay.

Downers

The only negative I can say about the internship was the lack of work at certain points in the internship. Some days I didn`t have work to do, but I was able to study for the CPA exam or my classes, which isn`t a bad deal at all. More or less grasping at straws with this one.

Advice to Potential Interns

Meet as many people as you can, develop relationships with these people, and pick their brains as much as you can. There are so many people at this office who relish the opportunity to help mentor you and guide you.

Sample Interview Questions

I was actually told to ask them questions, which is often more useful in learning about a potential employee. Students are trained on what to say more often than not. Having the potential employee ask questions is more revealing than a cookie-cutter answer supplied to them by an institution.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you`re doing.

Would You Recommend

Great Experience with Great People

5.0 of 5 stars

Augusta, GA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best aspects of the internship was the company culture. Everyone there was smart and capable while taking a particular interest in helping the interns learn and grow. The firm scheduled lots of social time outside of work to give interns the opportunity to get to know others in the office and tune into the firm culture. There was also a lot of mentorship. The firm was very intentional by pairing interns with a CPA that they regularly meet with and get to ask questions.

Downers

There was very little I did not like about this internship. I guess I would have liked a little more experience with different types of tax returns.

Advice to Potential Interns

This company has the ideal accounting firm environment. It has the resources and depth of a large firm with the feel and mentorship of a small firm.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Incredible Learning Experience

4.8 of 5 stars

Charlotte, NC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The high level clients I was allowed to work on with the full time staff members. The year end trip to Charleston. The philanthropy projects we were allowed to do throughout the summer.

Downers

I do not have a response for this item.

Advice to Potential Interns

Get involved, meet new people, and have fun!

Sample Interview Questions

Tell me about a time when you had to work with someone who is not thought of as "easy to get along with".

Advice to Management

I enjoyed all aspects of the program, I am not sure I can say there is a specific area that needed attention or could improve.

Would You Recommend

Yes

5.0 of 5 stars

The people at Elliott Davis; the intern/staff interactions

Downers

The process of exit interviews/offers on last day of internship--wasn't fair to those interns who didn't get offers because they had to face other interns who did.

Advice to Potential Interns

This firm took me in and made me feel like family. If you're looking for a business place to call home, a place where employees have work-life balance, then Elliott Davis is the place for you!

Would You Recommend

Through the internship, I was able to learn a lot and now have real world examples to take back into the classroom. The people are what make the firm a place where you want to work. They are very supportive and willing to help.

Downers

The internship was a really good experience. There were times when I wish I had more work to do.

Advice to Potential Interns

Elliott Davis has a great environment. The internship program has a lot to offer and is a great opportunity. Everyone is very helpful and willing to take the time to sit and train you. They have a vested interest in your future and want to see you succeed.

Experience, training, office environment, networking

Downers

The scheduling was a challenge, but the company is aware of this.

Don't be afraid to show interest in a particular area of accounting. It will only set you apart from the group and make you an asset to the company sooner rather than later.

Envision was an excellent welcome into the accounting profession.

The work environment, the people, the experience, the activities and bonding, the learning.

The only con to my internship was that it didn't last longer.

Advice to Potential Interns

Elliott Davis is an excellent firm to intern for. Don't worry, they don't expect you to know how to do everything already, but are very willing to help you learn.

Would You Recommend

Augusta, GA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Getting to know the shareholders and fellow employees while getting real life experience in tax accounting.

Downers

It was a smaller number of office people than I was expecting.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you want one on one time with fellow employees and a laid back work environment, then this is the company for you.

Advice to Management

Having more training with the programs and computer systems would help!
