PwC's Internship Experience Packs an Invaluable and Incomparable Punch.
Detroit, MI | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Everything was awesome. The work that we did was meaningful and beneficial to my development as a professional. I liked how I was treated as a first-year, and not so much as an intern. PwC really invested in me this summer and helped get my career off on the right foot.


Downers

I would've liked it to have been a little longer.


Advice to Potential Interns

Really evaluate the quality of people that work for PwC because these are the people you will be surrounded by every day at work. At PwC, the people really do make all of the difference and is the main reason that working for PwC is such an amazing experience.

Rewarding hands-on experience
San Diego, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

As an intern, I was provided with challenging and meaningful work that contributed to the completion of an audit. I felt that I was a valued member of the engagement team and that my team members were interested in my development as a young professional.


Downers

The short duration of the summer internship. Public accounting has a steep learning curve, therefore once you began to feel comfortable with the processes, procedures and system, the internship is over.


Advice to Potential Interns

The PwC environment is truly dedicated to the learning and development of employees and interns. Public accounting can be a challenging and demanding industry, but PwC is committed to helpling it's employees build a strong foundation and grow as professionals.

Fast Paced Quality Experience that Will Prepare you for your future.
Toledo, OH | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Working with great teams and feeling like you were completing meaningful tasks.


Downers

We were required to submit several administrative forms about the internship almost back to back. So the information did not change very much from each one and it seemed very redundant.


Advice to Potential Interns

Engage yourself and take on tasks you may not normally do. That way you will get the most out of your experience.


Sample Interview Questions

Describe a time where you experienced a tough decision and how did you overcome/work through that decision.


Advice to Management

The Starting Salaries seem to be a little lower than some of the competitors starting salaries.

Advice to Potential Interns

The accounting industry requires some long hours, but the people are what make PwC a great firm to work for. The culture is laid back and fun. During tax season, we even had a mini-golf tournament held each Friday.
