Very chalenging internship with a lot of new things that I have learned. Overall I enjoed it but didn't expect such a difficult project


Uppers

Team that I have worked with has beeen very good. All the skills and knowledge what I have learned. Compansation was really good


Downers

The project, I really didn't like the project. Working over the weekends and events that I have missed due to the work load


Advice to Potential Interns

It all depends. You can end up in a very fast pace and difficult project as mine or you can be unstafeed for the half of the summer and just support diferent teams


Advice to Management

I would suggest better selection of projects. If you want for an intern to have a full experience you cannot staff him on the projecct that is so intense.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Audit


Uppers

Free lunches and dinners, good experience with a client, and firmwide sponsored events.


Downers

The long hours and late nights were not my favorite. I also had some bad experiences with power-hungry associates.

If you are willing to give up your life for five years, you will learn a lot and be able to get an awesome job coming out.


Advice to Management

The organization has ridiculously long hours and low pay for those hours.


Would You Recommend

Yes

great learning but unfair process


Uppers

I studied a lot and learned about the culture of company. I had the chance to have hands on experiences about the line of service that I am doing. I was taught how to work better.


Downers

Supervisor has unexpected expectations which were not specificly communicated to me. Team member did not response positively for my questions. It is hard to live up to their expecations because they would not give you a chance to improve.


Advice to Potential Interns

Have the luck to meet supervisor who is not too strict and work with people who are helpful and positive.


Advice to Management

Train employees about taking initiative to communicate their expectations to interns. Help interns grow in a positive way and give interns chances to improve.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Memorable


Uppers

The I was assigned to made me feel like part of them from the beginning and I was never treated like an intern.


Downers

The pay compared to other companies


Advice to Potential Interns

This is as close as it gets to real, hands-on experience


Advice to Management

Do not have masters students grouped with and/or treated as undergrads; the expectations, experience and maturity levels are different for these two demographics.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Learn what it is like to work as a first-year associate at a Big 4 public accounting firm.


Uppers

The best aspects were the team environment, the assigned variety of clients, and the feeling of doing actual work that was needed and important to the firm and its clients.


Downers

Did not get any say or option as to what clients you were assigned to and did not really get to work with and continue to get to know other interns after the training was over.


Advice to Potential Interns

PwC has a great internship program. You get exposed to real-life working situations that you would encounter as a full-time employee with the firm. You also are provided with a great support system made up of three coaches at differing employment levels wtihin PwC. This makes it easier to get adjusted and understand and get value out of your experience.


Advice to Management

The internship would be better if there was more opportunities to collaborate with other interns. The week of training was great at creating the initial relationships with people that were your level, but it was hard to maintain or further develop these relationships after training ended since there was only typically one intern per engagement team.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Learning how to think, write, and work like a PwC auditor.


Uppers

Getting to shadow a partner for a day, Being able to work in a real-life audit situation


Downers

Interns are naturally at the bottom of the totem poll, so it is very common to spend entire days peforming tie-outs or other tedious tasks not requiring much brain power.


Advice to Potential Interns

The experience gained will be very valuable, but new hires are expected to work long hours without being highly compensated for those hours. Doesn't appear to be a very family friendly career path.


Advice to Management

Compensating employees for overtime would improve the moral among associates. Also, many audit teams act unprofessionally by using excessive profanity and complaing about managers.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Meet great people and learn from people who will take the time out to help you learn


Uppers

Understanding workplace dynamics and team dinners


Downers

Having work to do on the weekend or after work hours to meet deadlines, especially when it's given to you at the end of the work day. It's manageable, but annoying.


Advice to Potential Interns

The people are enough to make you stay on and still be willing to put in the hours.


Advice to Management

Have events that are more accomodating to people who have to commute places or at least make up for it so I don't feel like I'm missing out. I'm one of those people who like to do everything and it frustrates me when I miss out on things.


Would You Recommend
