The best internship an accounting major could hope to get
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspect of the internship was the culture that PwC promoted. As an intern, one could tell how much PwC cared about your future. Anytime I did not understand anything or needed guidance, somebody was always there to help. From the high ranking partners, down to the newly hired associates, everyone was there to assist me and guide me in becoming a better accountant. As an intern, I could see how much PwC cared about their employees. Everyone worked hard, while mainting a reasonable work-life balance. PwC has a great reputation in the accounting world, and their internship program definitely reflected this.


Downers

There was nothing that I disliked about the internship


Advice to Potential Interns

PwC is a great place to start ones career as an accountant or CPA. They promote a culture of success, while truly caring about their employees

Insight to the public accounting profession
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Having a very knowledgeable senior that was able to teach me a variety of aspects of the audit as a whole.


Downers

The internship was too short. I wish it was at least a month longer in order to learn more about the work and opportunities within the company.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be open to learn and absorb everything that they teach you. Keep the big picture in mind. Often times people are stuck on the individual details of the assignments and forget how your task relates to the audit as a whole.


Advice to Management

Public accounting has very high turnover, due to burn out or better job opportunities etc. There should be a policy in place that allows employees who give ample notice, to take a one or two month sabbatical (with no pay) if they choose in order to recharge. Additionally, this act should not be frowned upon and encouraged after working long stretches. This might minimize turnover and the need to hire and train new employees.

Explore your interests, develop your talents, and grow professionally
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects were the ability to participate in actual engagements, and interact with various PwC personnel and clients. It also gave me direct exposure to my preferred line of service. Finally, the training was detailed and very useful.


Downers

I wish I had more time on some of the clients.


Advice to Potential Interns

I recommend candidates participating in some of the many campus events coordinated by PwC and learning about them in person and online.


Advice to Management

The organization can continue to promote work-life flexibility.

A Great Learning and Career Development Experience
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

PwC puts a lot of time and effort into training and career development. During my internship I had multiple mentors and two weeks of training at the beginning with more training to follow through the entire internship. I made friends and professional connections that will benfit me for many years to come even if I didn't accept a full time offer with the firm. The pay is also really good.


Downers

The hours can be long but it balances out in the end. There were times that I did 'intern' work such as making copies and filing but that was mostly in the beginning when I still was learning.


Advice to Potential Interns

Show the firm that you are a hard worker and if you don't have work then reach out for some. Also show the firm that you would be enjoyable person to work with.


Would You Recommend

Yes

PwC's internship was a fantastic learning experience; developed personal and professional skills
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

My heavy involvement on the team, compensation, training programs and workshops, company culture, social activities, PwC's Internship Development Program in Disney World, support from mentors, and experience learning how to prepare tax returns


Downers

Busy season hours were hectic, which was expected.


Advice to Potential Interns

Working at a big four firm is busy and fast paced but PwC has a fantastic company culture with great people that help you develop your personal and professional skills. During the busy months of tax season, we worked hard but also had fun activities planned to make things easier. For example, every Friday the company would buy pizzas for lunch and everyone would take a nice long lunch break to socialize and enjoy lunch. The people who work at PwC are great and make working longer hours more enjoyable.
