When going to work doesn't feel like work
Dallas, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

My team members were fun, helpful, understanding, and supportive. I made so many friends from different schools. Even though the PwC is a huge firm, they made me feel like I was important and mattered.


Downers

I would have liked it to be longer than 3 months.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be yourself. I was my self throughout the entire recruiting and internship process which allowed recruiters to place me in a team that I was most compatible with so that I would get the most out of my internship.

Achieveing personal growth while helping clients see real change.
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Opportunitiy to choose the industry I wanted to work in, my team, feedback process, courses available for personal training/development, informal networking opportunities/social events, hours/pay.


Downers

Formal networking opportunities were minimal.

Since I was always at the client, I rarely interacted with other interns.

Within industry, project assignment was random with little regard to intern skills/preferences.


Advice to Potential Interns

During your internship you will be required to be a people person. Whether and extrovert or introvert, ability to work in teams is critical with both your PwC team and the client. Real-time feedback is also encouraged so be ready to get some tough love throughout; it will lead to personal growth. Additionally, employers love interns who have analytical/deliverable-creation skills so very strong Excel and PowerPoint skills can really make your internship fantastic. Lastly, come here if you want to be in a specific industry (Finance, Healthcare), not a specific competency (operations, strategy, etc.) because that is the way that the company is set up. Also know that it is very difficult to switch from one industry to another once you start full time.


Sample Interview Questions

After receiving the case, one of the things I was asked was to provide a timeline with implementation steps to my recommendations.


Advice to Management

Since within an industry, interns are placed on random projects, interns should receive more formal opportunities to get to know other aspects of that industry. For example, in Finance if you are placed on an insurance company, but were always interested in consulting an asset management firm, you should be able to formally network with that group.

PwC - you never know how awesome it is until you intern here
Chicago, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

All my colleagues were extremely friendly and helpful. They genuinely wanted to help me improve and learn. They were always positive and enthusiastic about their work, which was particularly important during busy audit seasons. So during my internship, I was happy every day even if I was working for 16 hours a day.


Downers

Seriously, nothing.


Advice to Potential Interns

PwC is one of the best places to start a career for an accounting student. Be prepared to work hard because the more you put into your internship, the more your will get out from it. Also be prepared to have a great time with your colleagues and fellow interns because it is just enjoyable to spend time with them!


Sample Interview Questions

As a student, there are a lot of occasions in which you are coached by others. Is there a time when you are the one who coach other people?


Would You Recommend

Yes
