Busy season immersion experience
Austin, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Meeting people on the teams, building on knowledge from the classroom in real life


Downers

Other interns were stuck on really bad clients and this did not accept their offers


Advice to Potential Interns

If you get stuck on a terrible client during your internship, it doesn't necessarily mean you will be stuck on it full time


Advice to Management

I was lucky in that I was moved to different clients but other interns were stuck on night mare clients the entire time. No amount of compensation made the experience worth it and it really have them a bad opinion of the firm. It would have been better to rotate those interns off that horrible job for at least a small time during those 8 weeks
