One of Nation's Top Internship Programs Lives Up to Expectations

4.4 of 5 stars

Charleston, SC | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The office was very well organized and ready to handle us interns. We had a variety of projects to work on and were very rarely waiting to be given assignments. I got lots of experience doing things I felt were important to the firm. The office was extremely friendly and I felt right at home.

Downers

Honestly, I had a great experience here and I can't think of much that I didn't like about the internship. We had volunteering projects that I thought could have gone smoother in terms of organization but that's about it.

Advice to Potential Interns

Go in expecting to work and give it your best shot and you will be rewarded. Ask questions and rely on others with more experience than you to help you.

Advice to Management

Training was more than a little boring. I think a set of official videos instead of recorded presentations might work better.

Sample Interview Questions

I don't recall specific questions, but some were along the lines of "Do you have any leadership experience?" and "What has been one of the biggest challenges you have overcome?"

Would You Recommend

Yes

Busy Season Made Bearable with the Best People

4.1 of 5 stars

Charleston, SC | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best aspects were the close relationships I was able to build. I could walk around the office and talk to everyone. Also, giving me work to do was a priority that was almost always fulfilled.

Downers

The clients are not the most glamorous, and the training is not as good as those firms with much more resources.

Advice to Potential Interns

The firm has a great reputation in the city. As a small regional firm, their clients are obviously smaller meaning you will work on many instead of just one or two. EDD has many nonprofits on their roster, something you are less likely to see at a national firm.

Advice to Management

Renovate the office. Encourage more staff bonding to foster relationships outside of work. Improve training to cover technical accounting and auditing topics that are often forgotten when focused on field work.

Would You Recommend

Yes

The best parts were the community service engagements and the ability to work on clients alongside staff. The opportunity to meet upper level management for lunches and to have staff outings were fun as well. The company has a focus to have a healthy work/life balance.

Downers

There are periods of dead time where no one has work to give out.

It is the largest regional CPA firm in the Southeast and rated the top internship accounting program.

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.

Charlotte, NC | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The firm made sure that I was not overworked during my internship, even though it was busy season. I was able to see a variety of different types of clients, and work with many different people in the firm. The firm was flexible with me if I had any requests for assignments or different things.

Downers

Overall the internship was a great experience. There were no real cons to my experience.

Advice to Potential Interns

I believe there is a great group of people and a great culture at this firm. The people there are fun to work with and easy to get along with. The work is challenging (as in any public accounting firm) but the culture and people of the firm make it worthwhile.

Would You Recommend
