Travel, continuous feedback, work-life balance, and great people.

During the first week I was unsure of what my day-to-day tasks would be. I then learned of these tasks the following week.


Advice to Potential Interns

PwC cares about your development as a professional. If you are unhappy in your Line of Service, they will place in you a line of service that you feel would better suit your professional needs. The corporate culture is wonderful and the people are great.

I would say that my internship experience was amazing. It opened my eyes to the real world. Academia can only prepare individuals so much.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Working with a team that really cared about me. We had an objective, but during my time on the client the team committed itself to helping me develop. They gave me pointers, and critiqued my mistakes. I also had a great deal of hands-on experience interacting with clients.


Downers

Some of the clients were not prepared for the engagement, so there were times when I was looking for work. My looking for work seemed like it may have been a distraction for the members of the team that had work. But I eventually found work, and the team completed the job on time.


Advice to Potential Interns

Ask questions, be open-minded and accept help. You will learn so much during the internship, don't go into it thinking you know everything.


Advice to Management

I think an additional day of training would be beneficial.

PwC: Experience the Profession
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspect of the internship was the opportunity to meet and work with people at all levels within the firm. I was able to gain exposure to everyone from first year associates through partners. I was also great to have experience doing actual work rather than simple tasks like copying or getting coffee. I was able to learn right away what kind of work I would be doing on a day to day basis if I accepted a full time position.


Downers

The only downfall to my internship was that there were so many interns it was sometimes difficult to distinguish yourself, but that made me work that much harder to showcase my talents and skills.


Advice to Potential Interns

Sometimes it can be hard to distinguish between the Big 4 Accounting firms. I would say that if you are having trouble deciding which accounting firm to choose to intern with, think about all of the people you met throughout the recruiting process and choose the firm with the people you felt like you clicked the most with. Each firm has a very distinct corporate culture, and it's important to choose the one that's right for you.

A look into the future: Getting a good knowledge of what I would be doing in the future and the people I would be working with.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects of the internship was that I felt like I was contributing to my teams. I was getting an idea of what the job entailed and the expectations I would have as well as I was able to get to know the people I was working with. In addition PwC did a great job showing us their culture through a community service day, allowing us to shadow a Partner of the firm for a day as well as many other opportunities that showed us what PwC was about.


Downers

Although I know be cause of the timing of a "summer" internship client need is not as heavy, but I wish we could have had a few more weeks of client work.


Advice to Potential Interns

The training provided at a firm such as PwC is incredible and something that you will not find at many places. They are very invested in your future and your growth. The people are not only looking out for the greater good of the company, but are honestly looking out for your best interest. One of my favorite thing is the high quality of your peers which pushes you to continue to grow.
