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.

PwC - you never know how awesome it is until you intern here
Chicago, IL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

All my colleagues were extremely friendly and helpful. They genuinely wanted to help me improve and learn. They were always positive and enthusiastic about their work, which was particularly important during busy audit seasons. So during my internship, I was happy every day even if I was working for 16 hours a day.


Downers

Seriously, nothing.


Advice to Potential Interns

PwC is one of the best places to start a career for an accounting student. Be prepared to work hard because the more you put into your internship, the more your will get out from it. Also be prepared to have a great time with your colleagues and fellow interns because it is just enjoyable to spend time with them!


Sample Interview Questions

As a student, there are a lot of occasions in which you are coached by others. Is there a time when you are the one who coach other people?

Yes

Fast Paced Quality Experience that Will Prepare you for your future.
Toledo, OH | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Working with great teams and feeling like you were completing meaningful tasks.


Downers

We were required to submit several administrative forms about the internship almost back to back. So the information did not change very much from each one and it seemed very redundant.


Advice to Potential Interns

Engage yourself and take on tasks you may not normally do. That way you will get the most out of your experience.


Sample Interview Questions

Describe a time where you experienced a tough decision and how did you overcome/work through that decision.


Advice to Management

The Starting Salaries seem to be a little lower than some of the competitors starting salaries.
