Spectacular opportunities for those that want to work hard

5.0 of 5 stars

Dallas, TX | April 2015 | FORMER INTERN

Uppers

Working with, and learning from, the highest caliber people. The USLT shadow experience where I was able to spend a day with CFO and Vice Chair of the firm. The vast amount of experience gained in such relatively little time.

Downers

I would have loved more client interaction although I would not consider this a significant "downer". If you think you can show up as an intern and run the show, this is not the place for that kind of ego.

Comments

Hard work and networking. You will have many that got in because of the school and program that they are affiliated with that do not take initiative. Be proactive a visible in your intentions and future plans.

An opportunity to Grow

5.0 of 5 stars

Chicago, IL | November 2014 | FORMER INTERN

Uppers

The best aspects of my internship was that PwC invested in my own growth. PwC sent me to a 3 day leadership conference while still being paid to develop my leadership skills. This summer they also gave me the opportunity to work at a charity of my choice as part of the Intern Loan Program. The program allowed me to follow a passion of working with schools and using my other major. Though I will not have a career in education, the experience allowed me to expand my mindset and perspective on the world.

Downers

The worst aspects of my internship had to do with not being able to work more than 40 hours a week. I was participating in an office case competition and I needed to log more than 40 hours in a week and the HR was upset. They wanted me to have some balance, but they did not allow me to fully pursue something I was interested in.

Comments

Be yourself and see if the culture is for you. It is a family style culture in a large company that allows the opportunity to grow and establish your roots in a particular area.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Once in a lifetime opportunity

Indianapolis, IN | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The people, work I did was enjoyable, received work at just the right pace, travel opportunities, pay, hours, and downtown office.

Downers

The feedback system was not based on "real-time" feedback.

Advice to Potential Interns

PwC will give you an unforgettable experience. They will treat you with respect and help you develop to feel like a true professional. Some highlights of the internship aside from the people are: great coaching, good pay, good hours as an intern, work that is not just "busy work" and travel opportunities to really cool cities.

Advice to Management

As I mentioned before, the feedback system was not extremely efficient. I only had three "formal" feedback reviews throughout the 8 weeks.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Interns are treated like first year employees and perform very valuable work towards the completion of the audit.

Downers

Working on Saturdays. Although we were compensated for the overtime which made it not so bad.

Advice to Potential Interns

Network with as many co-workers as possible and don't be afraid to ask questions.

Would You Recommend

PwC Tax Intern Works on Real Clients

4.9 of 5 stars

Columbus, OH | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I did work on real clients that allowed for me to view several different nuances of the tax perspective of a business. Actually getting to prepare tax returns for a couple types of business and individuals helped to broaden my knowledge and strengthen my skills in the field of tax accounting.

Downers

I didn't like the training conference we had; I felt it was too high level and more based on the technology we used. Even after the training I learned the skills better and learned more on the job than at the training.

Advice to Potential Interns

You will be working on real life situations/clients and gain a great experience through the people you work with. Be willing to learn and ask questions, because its easier to work with everyone when you are willing to gain more knowledge.

Sample Interview Questions

What word best describes you? What kind of person are you?

Advice to Management

The Columbus office had a problem with employee retention, but I feel that they have taken care of it even before I left, by hiring a couple new employees to the staff.

Would You Recommend

Advice to Potential Interns

There is no greater accounting firm. PwC looks out for every single employee.

A valuable opportunity to learn and grow

4.8 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

- Working with a team

- Learning new software/computer skills

- Having opportunities to communicate with the client

- Having the ability to juggle many different tasks

- Having the opportunity to learn about the audit

Downers

There were a few weeks of downtime where I wasn't assigned much work.

Advice to Potential Interns

To future interns, you need to ask as many questions as you can in order to get a good understanding of what you are doing and how it fits into the audit. You need to understand not only WHAT you are doing, but WHY you are doing it. You will feel more valuable to the team and learn a lot more about the audit if you do this. Also, be patient if work is slow in the beginning.

Sample Interview Questions

What line of service are you interested in?

Please elaborate on ____________ experience and how it has helped you become prepared for working.

Explain your largest leadership experience.

Advice to Management

Try to get as many interns scheduled on jobs as soon as possible. Downtime is hard as an intern. Also, as mentors and managers, there should be adequate training on how to explain various firm or audit related topics to the interns. Communication is key when hiring an intern.
