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.

great experience
Columbia, SC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

I felt that there was a lot of down time, but given that it was a summer internship in a tax department, this was inevitable.

Learn the business knowlege of a lifetime in 7 weeks
Greenville, NC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Being able to interact with all employees within the company - no matter how important they were. One week the CFO took us out to lunch, the managing sharehold (aka CEO) particapted in our group video, and we had multiple lunches with managers / shareholders.


Downers

It was difficult at first to get enough work for the entire day. This frustrated me because the last week of the program my email blew up with new projects. I wish we could have that (being busy) all summer and not just at the end.


Advice to Potential Interns

Think about the future. Many young profesionals want to come out of school and make the most money. Elliott Davis is more than a paycheck - it is a company that invest in an individual to better the company along with its surroundings.


Sample Interview Questions

Very typical questions. Nothing that threw a big curve ball.


Advice to Management

It would be nice to see the range of salary around the company.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Columbia, SC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people in the office are great to be around

Very little time spent learning or doing things - lots of filler/fluff activities. However, it wasn't busy season so that is to be expected in this industry.

The Road Ahead
Charlotte, NC | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

being able to interact with clients and do real client work. I was able to learn so much during the internship.


Downers

I wish there would have been more clients I could have gone out to.


Advice to Potential Interns

Don't be scared to ask questions- they don't expect you to know how to do most of the work you're given. Try your best, but definitely ask if you need to. Make the best of the experience- Get to know the shareholders, senior managers, etc., as well as the staff accountants so you can see if you'd be happy in the work environment.

Elliott Davis offers face to face teaching while still having the opporutinties of a large firm.
Columbia, SC | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Going out a clients, talking with senior leaders, dealing with financial statements.


Downers

I did care for the leadership books. I kind of felt like they were meant as busy work.


Advice to Potential Interns

Know that there are a lot of opporutinites at ED and that the work you do will be more recognized than working at a big 4.


Would You Recommend

Yes
