The summer I got to feel what it was like to be an auditor
Los Angeles, CA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Travel, and friednly people & culture.


Downers

To be honest I cannot think about one thing I liked least, they have made sure to accomodate us in every way.


Advice to Potential Interns

I would definitely go for it, and if selected it truly makes you feel that all your hard work has paid off. We all know interviewing with the big 4 is a tough process but in the end it gives you a feeling of accomplishment.


Advice to Management

I think the promotion policy can be that closer of its competitors or keep its current promotion policy but make sure to match its competitiors in pay. Though, it seems like they have gotten it right because their name ways the heaviest out of the big 4.

I am not a fit for the type of work done at PwC.


Advice to Potential Interns

I think it's important to know exactly what type of work you will be doing.


Advice to Management

PwC needs to give their candidates longer to consider their job and internship offers. One month is not enough.

Great way to get a feel for the firm's culture and see if you are a good fit with the firm.
San Francisco, CA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The opportunity to work on many different clients and engagements which gave me a variety of different experiences.


Downers

There is a decent portion of time where there is not enough work during the summer so you spend time sitting around.


Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure to ask a lot of questions and be open to new opportunities. You may think you don't know how to do something but chances are you can figure it out if you think about and if you can't figure it out, people will be there to help you.


Advice to Management

Try to find other ways to keep interns busy if there is no work available. I have heard a lot of stories of interns sitting around doing nothing for a healthy portion of the day.

Yes
