An opportunity to Grow
Chicago, IL | November 2014 | Former Intern


Uppers

The best aspects of my internship was that PwC invested in my own growth. PwC sent me to a 3 day leadership conference while still being paid to develop my leadership skills. This summer they also gave me the opportunity to work at a charity of my choice as part of the Intern Loan Program. The program allowed me to follow a passion of working with schools and using my other major. Though I will not have a career in education, the experience allowed me to expand my mindset and perspective on the world.


Downers

The worst aspects of my internship had to do with not being able to work more than 40 hours a week. I was participating in an office case competition and I needed to log more than 40 hours in a week and the HR was upset. They wanted me to have some balance, but they did not allow me to fully pursue something I was interested in.


Comments

Be yourself and see if the culture is for you. It is a family style culture in a large company that allows the opportunity to grow and establish your roots in a particular area.

When going to work doesn't feel like work
Dallas, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

My team members were fun, helpful, understanding, and supportive. I made so many friends from different schools. Even though the PwC is a huge firm, they made me feel like I was important and mattered.


Downers

I would have liked it to be longer than 3 months.

Realistic experience, including all the fun perks.
Denver, CO | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

We did a lot of networking events & had a national training in Georgia. The internship ended in Disney World where we did a PwC/Disney colloborated challenge. I got to see what it's like to be an Associate at PwC.


Downers

I worked with a small group and I did get to meet a lot of people, but it was challenging being out of the office so much.


Advice to Potential Interns

They invest so much into the people they want and truly care about providing you with a good experience. PwC strives to create a two-way street. Where a mutually beneficial relationship exists. They always want you to grow as a professional and will help you find the path that fits.
