    Pros

    As an intern, I felt like the experience I received at the PCAOB was absolutely invaluable. Providing relevant work experience with a big-picture take on the business world, the PCAOB offered me the opportunity to stretch myself and increase my capabilities. Even upper management was concerned about my personal development and progression.

    For any future interns considering this opportunity, the PCAOB has a pleasant, yet productive office culture that will build your resume as well as your ability to have a significant impact on the business world.

    Cons

    Work can sometimes be slow. Being proactive helps remedy this problem.

    Pros

    Plentiful opportunities to learn about the business world. Engaging projects and challenging assignments helped me hone my technical skills and learn about the common practices and regulations within the accounting profession. Management included well qualified and highly intelligent individuals who were resourceful and helped others at a moments notice.

    The mission of firm is noble and important. The managers do a great job of upholding the mission and keeping interns involved.

    My internship helped me gain various interviews for full-time associate positions with Big Four firms when I previously had difficulties obtaining interviews for Big Four internships.

    Cons

    Compensation is more than adequate, but less in comparison to public accounting firms. Limited advancement for interns to become associates.

    Pros

    Warm, friendly, inviting place to work. Mission is important, company is growing, workloads are reasonable, flexible schedules, and pay/benefits are very good. Great location on K Street is enhanced by telecommuting/scheduling flexibility. I am glad I joined PCAOB. Much better than the Big 4 - I got to use all of my (1st year) 7 weeks PTO!

    Cons

    The organization is only ten years old and has had some growing pains, but I see leadership making significant changes that could easily transform this place into a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep asking employees questions and listening to employee responses. Keep making changes to improve based on what you hear.


  7. Great experience and resume booster. I learned more in my internship here than I did after 4 years of college.

    Pros

    over the course of 3 months I had a very enjoyable time at the PCAOB. I enjoyed working with and learning more about the audit process with the different teams and managers. As interns you will be able to have a hands on experience as to what goes on in the PCAOB, and this experience really broaden my perspective of public accounting. Everybody at the PCAOB is very open and easy to talk to-I was very comfortable asking questions and or advice about my career and my projects. You can really tell everybody here is looking out for you as well. Overall I had an amazing experience at the PCAOB, and am honored to have had the opportunity to intern here. I highly recommend it to anybody who is pursuing a future in public accounting.

    Cons

    Although I enjoyed my time, the PCAOB does not entry level positions right out of college. However, this is very reasonable because they want to ensure that you have had experience in working with a public accounting firm.
