Incredible Learning Experience
Charlotte, NC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

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.

Experience, training, office environment, networking


Downers

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


Advice to Potential Interns

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.

Yes

Superior Company Culture, Superior Work Experience
Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I would say that my exposure to Elliott Davis's company culture and their employees were the best aspects of the internship. An employee told me during the internship that public accounting is basically the same wherever you go, so you really have to enjoy the company culture and the people you work with. I really believe this to be true and Elliott Davis really proved to me that their company culture fits well with my personality and I enjoyed everybody I got the chance to work with.


Downers

There was nothing that I would change about the internship experience. I am sure that if I did have an issue, management would have quickly taken my suggestion and changed anything that I did not like.


Advice to Potential Interns

I would tell a prospective candidate to be prepared to work hard, but also be prepared to enjoy their time at Elliott Davis. Through countless socials, lake days, beach trips, and kayaking trips, there is always something fun to look forward to. Even though I was working, I had a blast because I enjoyed the work I was doing and everyone that I was working with. Elliott Davis really values their employees and it shows in everything that they do.

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.

A Glance Into the Real Life of a Tax Accountant

#1 Internship Experience
Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Getting to know everyone and seeing so many things that I learned in school be put into practice.


Downers

That it didn't last longer.


Advice to Potential Interns

The people and culture at Elliott Davis are great. The work experience is fun, but also challenging, which creates the perfect combination.


Sample Interview Questions

My interview consisted of getting to know several of the employers at Elliott Davis. In conversation, they asked questions, such as:

"What are your plans for the future, over the next year, 5 years, 10 years."

"What type of organizations are you involved in and what do you do within those organizations."


Advice to Management

My experience was great.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Transformative
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

Yes
