Some of the work I did was simple and almost mindless because I obviously was not yet qualified for the more difficult tasks.

Uppers

Ability to connect with current employees at all levels and learn about their experiences


Downers

I enjoyed everything about the internship - it was a great experience


Advice to Potential Interns

Look beyond the compensation package - your pay situation will change drastically over the next several years of your career. Pay attention to how the company treats its more seasoned employees - this is where you will be soon. Do they offer good benefits and career growth? If so - that is the company you should choose.


Advice to Management

Continue to focus on flexibility measures - the firm has become a leader for ensuring that employees are able to meet their personal and professional goals. Continuing this effort will help our generation find their place long-term.

Exponential Learning at PwC
Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Working directly with managers, learning about all different types of audit clients, overtime pay, meeting new people


Downers

Sometimes at client cites the auditors do not get the most comfortable or convenient work spaces.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be open to new experiences and you will surprise yourself with what you are able to accomplish.


Sample Interview Questions

The interview with PwC was very relaxed and more focused on getting to know me as a person than questioning me. They wanted to know if I was the type of person that would fit well in the office and get along well with others. They knew I could learn by my grades, and teachability is one of the most important aspects in this role.


Advice to Management

I think PwC is making large strides at employee retention by helping guide and coach new associates through difficult times such as busy seasons or complicated clients.

Hard to decline the full-time offer
Oklahoma City, OK | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

- Flexible work hours (for some engagements)

- Work environment: I always worked with other associates and seniors, and was able to ask questions any time and receive immediately response.

- Amount of exposure to various industries: I was on three different engagements in three different industries.

- Realistic: I interned during the busiest three months of the year, and was able to experience the busy season to decide if the work hours/load is acceptable


Downers

Loved everything about my internship! I did have to work about 80 hours one week, but that is nature of the profession.


Advice to Potential Interns

During the interview process, be yourself.

During the internship, always ask questions, if you have any, and read/listen to instructions and follow them.
