Lots of work but lots of time to play
Cleveland, OH | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

To get to see what full-time employment is like


Downers

I wanted my internship to be longer


Advice to Potential Interns

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.

Review until you get to Dallas.
Ft. Worth, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Once you are involved with a client, you are really able to see and understand the process of how to prepare returns.

I honestly wish it was a little bit longer of an internship. I feel like the time flew by.


Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure to schedule meetings with career coaches early so that they may assist you to get involved with as many opportunities as possible.


Advice to Management

During the internship, I wish that the interns could have all been situated closer to one another in the office.

PwC, Where Everyone is Supportive and the Tax Returns Matter.
Nashville, TN | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The whole office is so supportive of one another. They are very helpful when it comes to the actual work, but they are also genuinely interested in your life--how you like the city, what you're up to, etc.


Downers

I regret not being able to shadow a Manager or Partner more. I was able to go out to lunch and be introduced to executives at other companies, but I would have enjoyed seeing what a Manager does on a typical day.


Advice to Potential Interns

Don't be afraid to make mistakes! I think it impressed the other employees how many questions I asked. They like to see you eager to learn. So if you make a mistake, don't fret; learn from it!

Team Based Learning
Jacksonville, FL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Flexibility in the workplace. I was able to work from home instead of working late hours at the office.


Downers

Sitting all day because I'm used to moving a lot.


Advice to Potential Interns

PwC really cares about their people. They strive to keep their employees happy because that is what leads to a successful, productive work environment. I was never treated as an intern during my internship but as a full time employee. This really helped me get a feel for what life would be like as a first year associate.

Uppers

The pay was great, you experience a lot of development in a short amount of time and the people at the firm are great.


Downers

It got off to a slow start but that's just because it's slower during the summer.


Advice to Potential Interns

The people at the firm are so welcoming and want to help you learn and the exposure you get to the clients is great. PwC has a phenomenal reach and endless resources so If you're looking to start your career in public accounting they are definitely the employer of choice.

Amazing Opportunities Start With PwC
Detroit, MI | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Best: People, the work was interesting, the firm was in a safe/secure area, compensation, the “buddy” program

Worst: Training


Downers

I didn’t think that all of the training we did was necessary.


Advice to Potential Interns

They try their hardest to be elite and I think they do it. They don’t miss out on any aspect.


Sample Interview Questions

Interviewed 2 years ago: do not remember


Advice to Management

I think they need a new way of tracking time and a new email system
