Best Internship in America

4.8 of 5 stars

Jacksonville, FL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best aspect of the internship was the real world experience and knowledge I gained. The employees were also very helpful and friendly.

Downers

The hours could be a little intimidating, but being with a supportive team helped with that.

Advice to Potential Interns

Stay focused, have fun, and don't be afraid to ask questions. The associates understand what you're going through and want to help.

Would You Recommend

Open your Eyes - It is about More than the Job

4.8 of 5 stars

Dallas, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Networking opportunities with full-time employees, as well as other interns from all over the state/country. I also enjoyed the exposure we had to the partners and other high-level employees within the firm. The mentorship program they had set-up was great and allowed me to feel like I had a voice and mattered, even as an intern.

Downers

The actual work I was doing and "busy season" - but that has to do with being in public accounting in general. PwC tries very hard to make unpleasant work and times of the year as pleasant and positive as they can be.

Advice to Potential Interns

Do not be intimidated by the work or the hours you will commit to the work. The people that you are working with actually do care for you, and they are 100% more concerned with doing what is right and helping you do what is right for you than with hitting certain hours per week. The job is high stress, but the firm really tries to reward you for putting in the effort and doing a good job.

Advice to Management

I think most people leave because they feel like they give everything they have to the job, and there is not enough reward for what is given. Therefore, I don't know that I have any real advice about what specifially to do, but I think finding ways to be more efficient (whereas it seems we are always adding more work and more administrative tasks that are a massive time suck) and then actually truly rewarding people for their accomplishments, dedication, hardwork, etc. is something that we could do better. I alwyas think compensation could be better - we can go work somewhere else for way less hours and for much more pay. I also really think that efficiency has to be a focus because unless the regulators change their rules and timelines, there isn't much else that we can improve upon as a firm.

Downers

As an intern, sometimes I felt like I was hindering my team more than helping because I had to stop and ask questions.

Interning at PwC gave me real world experience and I was able to learn what it is like to work in public accounting, especially during busy season.

4.9 of 5 stars

Fort Lauderdale, FL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Being treated as a worthy and important piece to the project and not necessarily as an "intern" would normally feel.

Downers

The hours were definitely straining but it comes with the territory of auditing.

Advice to Potential Interns

Interning with a Big Four firm provides a real experience of what to expect. I highly recommend for those considering joining the audit field. In addition, intern during winter (busy season) so you can get a better feel for how things run as opposed to Summer when it's much slower.

Advice to Management

Overall had a great experience, no complaints!

Would You Recommend

Yes

Meaningful and rewarding work experience!

Don't be afraid to ask stupid questions. Chances are, the associates you are working with asked those same questions when they were interns only a few years ago.
