Great look into what a tax professional does at a big 4 accounting firm.
Charlotte, NC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best part of the internship was that I got a look into what work really looks like. I didn't get a prettied up version of what I would be doing and so I was able to truly evaluate whether I would want to work for PwC.


Downers

I felt that the internship was a little short and I didn't get to do as much work as I wanted.


Advice to Potential Interns

I would encourage future candidates to talk to as many people as possible about their experiences at the company because everyone has a different perspective.

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!


Sample Interview Questions

What are some things you are looking for in an internship?

Why did you select Nashville as your city of preference?


Advice to Management

I can't complain about anything in the office. I do however wish we had bigger desks as interns.
