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.

Gaining Exposure, Developing Skills and Building Connections
McLean, VA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

PwC puts a lot of effort into designing their onboarding and enrichment activities. These definitely helped in getting us interns into the right mindset for the summer as well as introducing us to key elements of PwC culture.



The mentoring program was also a big part of my internship experience. Interns are given a Peer Mentor, a Coach and a Relationship Partner. Each of these individuals played a unique role in helping me to navigate my summer experience. They all seemed genuinely interested in my development and success.



Finally there are so many great resources available to Interns (and all PwC professionals). Though I had difficultly in navigating the various resources, the ones that I did use were very helpful.


Downers

The hours on my particular engagement were not as flexible as I would have liked. Given the location of the client site I was often on site for much longer than necessary.



I would have also liked a little more guidance on how to take advantage of the many resources accessible to firm professionals. Ultimately I was able to get such advice from members of my engagement team but it would have been nice to have more formal overviews led by the Internship academy.


Advice to Potential Interns

PwC has a number of great development and enrichment programs that aim to ensure your success at PwC and beyond.



From my personal experience, I can also say that PwC Interns are given substantial work on their engagements and truly contribute to delivering value to the client. Rather than observing from the sidelines, you are treated as a valuable team member and expected to deliver value and insights along with everyone else.

PwC Internship: The excellent learning experience and career starter
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
