Jump into the water with sharks and see if you love it or not
Fort Lauderdale, FL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Being treated as a worthy and important piece to the project and not necessarily as an "intern" would normally feel.


Downers

The hours were definitely straining but it comes with the territory of auditing.


Advice to Potential Interns

Interning with a Big Four firm provides a real experience of what to expect. I highly recommend for those considering joining the audit field. In addition, intern during winter (busy season) so you can get a better feel for how things run as opposed to Summer when it's much slower.


Advice to Management

Overall had a great experience, no complaints!

The harder you work, the more you will achieve and succeed.
Florham Park, NJ | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The coaches each intern was given at the very start of the internship. Having a coach on the associate level, the director level, and on the partner level made me feel very welcome and comfortable asking questions. The coaches were very concerned with my success with the firm.


Downers

I can't say anything badly about the internship with PwC. It is a very organized program I feel many students will reach success in.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be yourself. The people of PwC want to get to know you just as much as you want to get to know them. The more you are yourself, the more they will understand your wants and needs, and ultimately the more you will feel at home with the firm.


Sample Interview Questions

How do you manage your time effectively?

How will you ensure that you are communicating throughout your engagements?

What are your best and worst qualities?

The Best Internship Experience
Philadelphia, PA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

team aspect, coaching, the events, Launch events, exposure to different clients


Downers

I liked everything about the internship


Advice to Potential Interns

Consolidate questions and ask as many as you can; schedule as many shadows as you can in every department that you think you are interested in


Sample Interview Questions

1. Tell me about a time you were part of a group - if anything went wrong how did you resolve it? 2. Walk me through your resume. The interview is behavioral and conversational


Advice to Management

PwC does a great job with all of these; just keep promoting awareness about training and promotion policies

Boston, MA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Less meaningful work than could have been given during the internship - a function of the slow summer season for the busines
