Chicago, IL | 2016 | VERIFIED INTERN

I didn't feel like an intern. At first this was intimidating because as an intern you don't know what to expect and you really don't know much about the accounting profession outside of what you learn in school. So I felt slightly overwhelmed at first being given ownership of an entire process, but at the end I am able to look back and see how much I learned because of being given the opportunity to be challenged and to challenge myself to better understand the process and my tasks as a whole.

Downers

I honestly can not think of something I did not like during my internship. It was a great experience.

Advice to Potential Interns

Speaking with my friends who are or have interned with other Big 4 accounting firms, they have said that many of the tasks they perform re admin based and they do not really get a good glimpse into what they will be doing when they start full time. This is not the case at PwC. PwC immerses you into the exact types of work you will be doing once starting as a first year.
