Greenville, NC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

All the really fun summer activities that made me feel like I wasn't missing out on my summer. Being given challenging work that kept me interested.

Downers

Research was my least favorite part of the internship although I understand that in the field of accountancy research is required in order to keep up with new rules and be able to solve all the different issues you are confronted with on a daily basis.

Advice to Potential Interns

Learn as much as you can, stay organized, work hard, and don't be afraid to ask questions.

Management of the company could not have treated me better this summer.

The experience gained from this internship is parallel to none. Elliott Davis doesn't make you go out and get coffee or make copies or do any of the other jobs that don't give you accounting experience. Instead, Elliott Davis throws you into the world of accounting with staff level work that you will be doing when you get out of college, which what all college graduates need in an internship.

Downers

I didn't like the fact that I didn't have the chance to get much client one-on-one interaction. I know this is because I don't have the experience yet but I still feel like it would have been great to do that.

Advice to Potential Interns

Elliott Davis is an organization that really takes care of you. They offer great benefits, pay and have a great family atmosphere within the office as well. You get to travel a little and you are not just sitting at a computer desk all day. I would recommend Elliott Davis to anybody wanting to pursue a career in public accounting.

Advice to Management

The one thing I think Elliott Davis could do better is to take the time to implement some kind of training before you are sent out to a client on an engagement. This would make interns ask less questions to seniors on the job and make the billable hours to client decline significantly.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Get experience in accounting with a firm that has great people, huge growth potential, and a great work-life balance.

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

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

"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."

Would You Recommend

Yes

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.

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.

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