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.

Downers

The lack of accouting work avalible to the interns and lack of training materials


Advice to Potential Interns

It's a great internship if you want to be able to really experince all that an Accounting firm has to offer.

Everyone at Elliott Davis is super helpful and really cares about and takes interest in their interns.

A Glance Into the Real Life of a Tax Accountant

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

Great Experience with Great People
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.

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.

Envision was an excellent welcome into the accounting profession.
Columbia, SC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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


Downers

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.

Accounting: The Real World
Charlotte, NC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects were the interactions with the interns and the trips.I enjoyed getting to know everyone who worked at the firm. This internship had a great balance of social and work life. Afterward I felt like I really got to know what the firm was truly about.


Downers

I did not like that sometimes there was nothing to do. I understood that it was just not too much to do during the summer.


Advice to Potential Interns

Take the time to get to know the upper level management and not just the staff

Awesome opportunity, friendly staff, and amazing work environment with hands on learning
Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects of this internship was the friendliness of the staff. Having the PAL system was super beneficial and also the fact that everyone wanted to get to know you and take you out to lunch made you feel like they actually cared about you as a person and not just the job you were doing.


Downers

The part I least liked about the internship was the location. This has nothing to do with Elliott Davis, I am from Michigan so it was a hard adjustment at first to get used to working 40+ hours a week at a location 12 hours from home.


Advice to Potential Interns

Elliott Davis is an awesome firm to work for. They really care about their employees, especially over busy season. They know hours can get long so they are always finding ways to make sure you aren't stuck in your cube all day doing work. The internship program was also unique in the fact that I got to pick what sort of things I wanted to work on. They would give me a little bit from all sorts of industries but then if I especially liked one I could request to do more from that industry. I personally just did a little bit from each one so I could kind of wet my hands in all aspects.
