Interning at local firm with accepted Big Four offer?

Hey everyone,

First-time poster. Long time reader. So, I’m in a little binding here. I currently have a full-time offer with PwC since March and I have already accepted it. Recently, money has been tight around my house, and I would like to help my parents out.

I received an internship offer for the winter with this very small, local firm that pays quite well, and I’m tempted to take it. However, at the end of my internship with PwC, my recruiter told everyone that we cannot intern with their competitors – that, at the time, referred to other Big Four firms and Mid-Tier. I’m wondering, however, if it refers to small, no-name firms.

Has anyone experienced or heard of a similar situation? I would like to hear everyone’s thoughts on the matter.
