An opportunity to Grow
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.

My step in the right direction
Boston, MA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The compensation was generous enough but the most important thing to me was the people. My seniors were great and were always willing to help in all situation


Downers

Mine wasn't really anything about the internship but somehow related to the internship and that was my commute. It took me roughly an hour and half to get to work and I wished I had lived closer.


Advice to Potential Interns

The most important think is to come hungry and ready to learn and don't be afraid to ask questions but be smart enough to figure certain thing out.


Sample Interview Questions

I was asked to talk about a time I demonstrated my leadership qualities and what I did to be successful at it.

FEEDBACK


Downers

Hitting traffic during my commute and the length of the internship, I wished it was a few weeks longer.


Advice to Potential Interns

I believe a person's work ethic says everything about them, the way they treat a simple project or a large one, If they go into each task with a good attitude and eagerness to learn, they will be a wonderful candidate.


Sample Interview Questions

I remember during my superday my first interviewer asked me these questions. It wasn't the generic questions you hear at an interview. They caught my off guard but it gave me no choice to respond wit genuine answers.



- Describe a winning attitude, what makes you a winner?

- How are you different from the next person that I will interview?

- Do you honestly care about the accounting profession, what about it will make you come into work everyday and make you work you butt off?


Advice to Management

Our office did not have any simulations or out of the office events. It wasn't a big deal but I wished we had more chance to meet other interns.
