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

Good learning experience but overall the work life balance is consuming based on observation

Internship with PwC Consulting

2.8 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Top Clients, good pay (due to OT), nice people

Downers

People were unimpressive despite being nice. The client work was very variable, and the firm pre-places you into a group. That group is where your offer most likely will be; therefore, the firm does not rely on a generalist model.

Advice to Potential Interns

PwC is an accounting firm that is trying to disguise itself as a consulting firm to gain better applicants.

Advice to Management

I would increase compensation significantly (up to industry average), and remove the specialist model for low-level employees.

Would You Recommend

No

Short but Useful Experience

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Good On-the-job experience. Direct assignment on an on-going project.

Downers

Length was too short. Too many events and activities combined.

Advice to Potential Interns

Work culture may not be suitable for everyone

Sample Interview Questions

Technical questions and previous experience related questions

Advice to Management

Compensation and work hours

Would You Recommend

Yes

Opportunities for career development are not worth the inability to dsitinguish oneselve and drive your own career.

3.2 of 5 stars

Detroit, MI | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Opportunities for career growth; decent pay, but not anything to write home about; high quality amenities.

Downers

Lack of flexibility; do not drive own career; no opportunity to distinguish yourself.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be open and ready to learn, but do not just learn the hard aspects. Remember every part of your experience and truly ask if this is what you want to do with your life.

Would You Recommend

No
