Let’s Enjoy Some Intern Reviews of Various Accounting Firms

Vault ranks lots of employers and this week they dropped their 50 top internships for 2016. There are lots of accounting firms on this list, so many it's almost unbelievable considering Vault invited more than 600 employers to participate. Here are all the firms that were list:

Each firm has plenty of reviews to comb through but the "Downers" are the most fun, including one Plante Moran intern whose only complaint was "Working full time and being away from school."). One KPMG intern's "Hard Work Required" ranked two stars, yet would still recommend, so that's not so helpful. By contrast, here's a PwC intern who said, "If you think you can show up as an intern and run the show, this is not the place for that kind of ego," which is incredibly helpful. Then there's the Deloitte Consulting intern who lamented about "unsustainable lifestyle; coworkers are all exhausted and drained." Oh, and a Marks Paneth intern who said, "The location of my desk was in the coldest corner of the office," which was one of the more valid gripes I read.

Obviously I'm cherry-picking here; interns said plenty of positive things about these firms, but they're far less interesting and/or amusing and mostly consist of "real world experience" and "smart people" and "great culture" and more mentions of "Disneyland" than you might expect.

Anyway, enjoy poking around if you feel so inclined. Interns are the best.
