What I wish was different
This is not really their fault, but there was not that much work for me to do. First, I did not have that much/if any experience/coursework in this field. Also, the timing of the internship was not the best in this regard. I joined a team toward the end of an audit cycle, so there was not many tasks available for my work level. The work I was given was tedious at times. Thus, I wish I was abe to be utilized more. This is just the nature of summer audit internships because this is a slow season while winter internships are during the busy season. Another con for me was that I only worked in an audit room at the EY office. While this was convenient for commuting and stability, it got a little monotonous. I wish I was able to switch up my work location (aka work at the client site at times), but for my client (a large bank's mutual funds) being at the client site was unnecessary.
