    I worked at PwC as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Lots of fun, you make a lot of friends
    - You are placed in a team with varied levels of experienced associates so you are never left behind.
    - Company name goes a long way
    - Pay is great, overtime is even better
    -You get plenty of mentoring from people within the firm during your internship so you never feel lost or out of place.
    Overall, I had a fantastic experience during my internship and I still stay in touch with the partner and my team. You have to make the most of it!

    Cons

    I had a wonderful experience but some people were placed in teams where they didn't enjoy their experience as much. However, if you are invited to be a part of the summer intership- they recruiting team and the management makes sure that you are taken care of and enjoy your experience while learning a lot.
    Be prepared to work a lot, but make sure you know your team so you can enjoy it. Rest assured, your summer will be all about your internship (time commitment).
