There was a lot of ambiguity to which I had to become accustomed.

Advice to Potential Interns

PwC has a very specific culture and fit is critical--those who succeeded were those who thrived in the environment.

Advice to Management

As a huge organization, there were occassionally mixed messages from HR, which didn't detract from the work experience, but did create some confusion among interns.

Jacksonville, FL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

The best aspect of the internship was the real world experience and knowledge I gained. The employees were also very helpful and friendly.

Downers

The hours could be a little intimidating, but being with a supportive team helped with that.

Advice to Potential Interns

Stay focused, have fun, and don't be afraid to ask questions. The associates understand what you're going through and want to help.

Open your Eyes - It is about More than the Job

4.8 of 5 stars

Dallas, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Networking opportunities with full-time employees, as well as other interns from all over the state/country. I also enjoyed the exposure we had to the partners and other high-level employees within the firm. The mentorship program they had set-up was great and allowed me to feel like I had a voice and mattered, even as an intern.

Downers

The actual work I was doing and "busy season" - but that has to do with being in public accounting in general. PwC tries very hard to make unpleasant work and times of the year as pleasant and positive as they can be.

Advice to Potential Interns

Do not be intimidated by the work or the hours you will commit to the work. The people that you are working with actually do care for you, and they are 100% more concerned with doing what is right and helping you do what is right for you than with hitting certain hours per week. The job is high stress, but the firm really tries to reward you for putting in the effort and doing a good job.

Advice to Management

I think most people leave because they feel like they give everything they have to the job, and there is not enough reward for what is given. Therefore, I don't know that I have any real advice about what specifially to do, but I think finding ways to be more efficient (whereas it seems we are always adding more work and more administrative tasks that are a massive time suck) and then actually truly rewarding people for their accomplishments, dedication, hardwork, etc. is something that we could do better. I alwyas think compensation could be better - we can go work somewhere else for way less hours and for much more pay. I also really think that efficiency has to be a focus because unless the regulators change their rules and timelines, there isn't much else that we can improve upon as a firm.

Atlanta, GA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

The best part was being able to work on a variety of projects. High profile/low profile and a wide variety of types of projects including divestitures, spin-offs, IPOs, and technical accounting.

Downers

There wan't anything I did not like about my internship.

Advice to Potential Interns

I would pursue every opportunity at the firm and do not just resort to tax or audit. There are many other opportunities that may fit your skills and preferences better.

Yes

Interns experienced rapid growth and development while given opportunities to meet their future.

Philadelphia, PA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I appreciated opportunities to complete community service within the Philadelphia school districts. Having the ability to delegate work hours to teach financial literacy upheld PwC's standards of corporate responsibility.

Downers

My overall expectations were met with this internship however the internships goes by extremely fast, sometimes I would alter the duration of it.

Advice to Potential Interns

My best advice to potential interns is to be true to yourself, values, and morals because the environment is nurtured in a way to accept your differences which allows the atmosphere to become more diverse.

Accounting career "launched" with PwC's Advance internship

5.0 of 5 stars

Philadelphia, PA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

PwC's senior associates and fellow associates treated my like a first year employee. I did not feel like an intern rather a values employee.

Downers

I only got experience in assurance services. It may be beneficial to allow interns to participate for a few weeks in taxation and assurance services.

Advice to Potential Interns

PwC expects their interns to contribute and assist in day to day tasks.

Sample Interview Questions

If you could be a car, what car would you be and why?

Advice to Management

Hours during tax and year end audit season are long.
