An Adventure in 8 Weeks
Cincinnati, OH | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I really enjoyed all the networking that this internship provided me. I am great friends with all the other interns and the people on my client team. I also learned a lot more in those 8 weeks than I have in any class.


Downers

I wish I knew more why I was completing each task that I was completing. I feel like I was just assigned a simple task to complete but I didn't know why I was doing this.


Advice to Potential Interns

I would tell a potential intern to be open minded about the whole experience and to continually ask questions to learn something new everyday. I would also tell them to continually network with everyone they meet.


Advice to Management

I think that PwC was an excellent place to work. However, I think it would have been nice to know how many hours I was going to work per week, or if I would be needed to stay later. Then, I can plan things around that.

Have an open mind, be willing to travel to different locations, and bring a red pencil.

Advice to Management

I was a little surprised by compensation in regards to interns making more money than associates at times due to overtime.

It is was you make it: Your personal work and networking efforts will dictate the success of the internship.
Philadelphia, PA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Everybody working for the company is willing to take time out and explain anything you need further clarification on.


Downers

The commute into the city.


Advice to Potential Interns

This is not a firm where you can work by yourself and be self centered. The culture encourages cooperation and teamwork to complete engagement projects.


Sample Interview Questions

How do you efficiently manage your responsibilities?


Advice to Management

Many people leave the firm after they gain some experience. Any thing to help boost employee retention would be helpful.

Excellent work experience that prepares you for the real world.
Boston, MA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The team that I worked with, the fun we had traveling, the experience I got during busy season.


Downers

There were times that the long hours were very grueling and it did get somewhat tiring to be traveling all the time.


Advice to Potential Interns

Keep a positive attitude and soak it all in. Sometimes things take a few days to really make sense. Nobody expects you to know everything. Just try your best and ask questions (I tried to save a few questions at a time to ask) and keep your head up. They will be impressed if you keep a positive attitude and strong work ethic. Be willing to learn.


Sample Interview Questions

A lot of the questions dealt with my prior experience and resume experience. Other questons included how I would react to long hours and strenous work environment.


Advice to Management

I would say it would have to be work-life balance for travel clients. One night a week we should leave early (or leave early on Friday's).
