I don't believe I disliked anything about my internship. I was able to learn so much.

Great look into what a tax professional does at a big 4 accounting firm.
Charlotte, NC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best part of the internship was that I got a look into what work really looks like. I didn't get a prettied up version of what I would be doing and so I was able to truly evaluate whether I would want to work for PwC.


Downers

I felt that the internship was a little short and I didn't get to do as much work as I wanted.


Advice to Potential Interns

I would encourage future candidates to talk to as many people as possible about their experiences at the company because everyone has a different perspective.

PwC, great company to work for!
Minneapolis, MN | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best part of my internship was the people I worked with. They were always so supportive. I could go to them with any question at all and they were glad to help me out. This support from my co-workers made my internship experience less stressful than it could have been.


Downers

During February and March we were working very long hours. I had multiple weeks during that time where I was working 75+ hours. I would have to say the long hours were the worst part of my internship experience.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be sure to really get to know a lot of people at each recruiting event. Enjoying the people you work with will make your internship experience infinitely better.

PwC takes college students and molds them into qualified associates in 10 weeks.
Dallas, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Two of the firm's major areas of focus is on diversity and building relationships. I loved the hands on experience of my day to day job because I was working with a team comprised of different genders and multiple ethnicities. I learned not only about accounting, but also about different cultures and their everyday lives. The recruiting team also planned a variety of intern events to get is well acquainted with one another since we would soon start working full time together. So, my favorite aspects were working with my team and the intern social events.


Downers

I didn't like that there was no guidance on housing. I know that's outside of the scope of the internship, but it was very difficult to move to a new state and find a 3 month lease in a safe area of town when I knew nothing about Dallas.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you want to work in an uplifting, challenging, and welcoming environment with some of the smartest people in the country, then PwC is for you.
