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.

Indianapolis, IN | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The people, work I did was enjoyable, received work at just the right pace, travel opportunities, pay, hours, and downtown office.

Downers

The feedback system was not based on "real-time" feedback.

Advice to Potential Interns

PwC will give you an unforgettable experience. They will treat you with respect and help you develop to feel like a true professional. Some highlights of the internship aside from the people are: great coaching, good pay, good hours as an intern, work that is not just "busy work" and travel opportunities to really cool cities.

Advice to Management

As I mentioned before, the feedback system was not extremely efficient. I only had three "formal" feedback reviews throughout the 8 weeks.

Would You Recommend
