3.4 of 5 stars

Miami, FL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Pay ($23/hour in South Florida), good coaching and feedback, great networking opportunities.

Downers

Long hours, associate work is very easy it becomes boring, over 20% of the tax staff quit while I was interning so it wasn't the best environment.

Advice to Potential Interns

Public accounting is not for everyone; have your back up options.

Sample Interview Questions

Tell me about a time in which you had to step up to the plate and show leadership.

Advice to Management

The intern pay rate is really good, but that's just to lure in the recruits. The starting salary is less than ideal, the hours are ridiculous as they are constantly under staffed, and they many times promote the wrong people.

Would You Recommend

Yes

No pain no gains

Money and people

Downers

Long hours

San Jose, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Great people, great culture, fun intern class

Downers

Didn't get to work a lot of hours, even though associates were staying later

Advice to Potential Interns

They say you are "treated like an associate" but you're still spoiled as an intern. Minimal responsibilities, not very challenging tasks, and you don't work as late as everyone else.

Would You Recommend

Yes

PwC the Summer Internship Experience of a Lifetime.

Boston, MA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The people, social events, support, and on the job training

Downers

I wish training was not a whole week long - most of the work was learnt on the job.

Advice to Potential Interns

See if you enjoy the atmosphere and the people. The work is going to be close to the same. And also explore the market to see if the clients and industries interest you.

Sample Interview Questions

Tell me something that I should know about you that's not on your resume.

Advice to Management

I think if training was eliminated than salaries could be increased by a small portion.

Would You Recommend

Yes

PwC has high standards and expects a lot of its employees.

Would You Recommend
