The best aspect of the internship was the direct relationship I had with my bosses and manager. They were so close, always checking up on me, and giving me great advice for the rest of my career.

The thing I liked the least was that some of the work got a little repetitive.

Getting to Know the PwC Culture
Boston, MA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The valuable conversations I had with employees/partners on how they got to where they are today and their advice as I start my own career at PwC. The social events where I get to network with PwC employees, partners, and other interns from other industries or line of service.


Downers

I wish I was able to do a little more client work. But I understand that is hard to do with the number of interns at the PwC Boston office and it being the summer time rather then in the winter time, during busy season.


Advice to Potential Interns

Talk to as many people as possible during the internship to get a full understanding of the company and the people who work at PwC.


Sample Interview Questions

Why should we hire you?
