Learn that is not always about the work but the people that are doing the work.

Send less emails and with the emails that are sent out, have items numbered for interns to follow. Make it easier so that things are not missed. Have ambassadors picked before weeks into the internship. Training would be better if the room had windows.

PwC Internship: The excellent learning experience and career starter

4.3 of 5 stars

Chicago, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The relationships that were built and co-workers willingness to help were two aspects that made me really enjoy my internship. Also, I enjoyed how I was treated as a full-time employee with the importance of work that I was assigned.

Downers

Even though they were expected, the long hours were sometimes difficult to handle.

Advice to Potential Interns

I would say be ready to work hard and be an integral part to the engagement team. If you do so, there is a great chance that you will end up with an offer to work for the firm full-time.

Sample Interview Questions

Tell me about yourself.

Many of my interviews with PwC were conversation-based as we talked about my resume and what could be expected during an internship.

Advice to Management

Try and limit the amount of hours interns can work because I believe there is the potential to burn them out before starting full-time.

Would You Recommend

Yes

It is difficult to adjust to the long work hours and culture, but you learn so many valuable skills in such a short period of time. Never hesitate to ask questions because the PwC staff is so eager to help you.

Provide more frequent performance feedback.
