Astounding opportunity to delve into the details of what it means to be an auditor with renowned accounting firm PwC

4.8 of 5 stars

Rochester, NY | 2015 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

One of the best aspects of the internship was the opportunity to meet and network with people. This starts with the people you intern with. We had a training event where we had a chance to meet people in our market that were interning in the same field as us. This really solidified friendships for the long haul and made it easier to talk to someone who you knew was on the same page as you day in and day out.

Downers

There was not anything I liked the least. I guess you could say that things surprised me, as I did not know what to expect never having interned in audit before. One thing that surprised me was the long hours but I certainly understand the need to ensure all work is completed and at a high quality level. I feel that the long hours could be seen as a negative but from a different perspective they also represent the hard work that employees dedicated to putting in week after week ensuring PwC lives up to their reputation.

Advice to Potential Interns

Any candidate that is evaluating PwC as a potential employer should decipher what they want to get out of their career. I know for me for instance that I want the opportunity to travel whether it be in the United States or abroad. I know that I want to challenge myself and set goals that will propel me up the corporate ladder. I know that the firm will provide the tools for success if I am willing to dedicate myself to using them. I know that I enjoy how much the firm values their employees and networking opportunities. All of these things are things that I looked for in an employer and I found that my wants and needs were met and even exceeded by PwC.

The amount of hands-on work and trust that my team members gave me was really awesome. The only way to swim is to get thrown in the deep end and you figure it out. The whole time, there are people at the side of the pool (PwC coworkers) teaching you the ways to swim and eventually you've got it.

Downers

Sometimes the amount of work that I had prevented me from enjoying the different extracurricular activities that the internship offered.

Advice to Potential Interns

The hours are long but the career path is there. Between networking and client interaction, there are always opportunities to do more. PwC is essentially either a spring cable to something new and better or it can be the most comfortable home, depending on your career choices and desires.

Advice to Management

Work-life balance can always improve.

Sample Interview Questions

Tell me about yourself. The interviewers strung questions out based on my initial response.

Houston, TX | 2015 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The amount of intern events they had for us was a big positive. These events allowed us to network and connect across the different groups in the office and have a lot of fun (whether it was going to sporting events, Houston Rodeo, Happy hours, Volunteering days, ect...)

Downers

Some of the benefits I would have liked to see were:
1. Provide parking
2. Greater help in finding a place to live/just providing a place to live.
However, these issues were minor to both me and my fellow interns and in no way made the internship anything less than stellar.

Advice to Potential Interns

This is the best internship I had. Period. Everyone at my office was so welcoming and ready to help/teach if I was unsure of what I was supposed to do. Add in all the events they had for us (average of 1 a week) and the great people you will end up meeting and a free trip to Disney World, who wouldn't love this internship?

Advice to Management

Everything was great, the policies and procedures were straightforward and transparent. Maybe create a little more of a structured system for giving interns projects, there were times I had little do to, even after asking around the office for work.

Sample Interview Questions
