EY LLP

Tax Intern

June - August 2019 • Hoboken, NJ

What I liked

The communication I was able to have with other team members. Coworkers we were both young and old conversed with me and gave me the opportunity to ask about their careers and my potential future.

What I wish was different

I wish there was a little more technical work I was given.

Advice

Try to meet as many people as possible and get a feel of how the firm works with you.

People Advisory Services Intern

June - August 2019 • Philadelphia, PA

What I liked

The fact I was treated as a valuable member on a team rather than “just an intern”. I had impeccable mentorship and a fabulous learning experience.

What I wish was different

Honestly, nothing at all.

Advice

Be able to work through some problems on you’re own and be an independent thinker. Have a real passion for what you’re doing because it’s difficult, and long work but if you love what you’re doing, it’s all for the better.

Assurance Intern

June - August 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I had the opportunity to participate in a variety of firm events such as community service, presentations from firm leadership, and an international intern conference in Disney World.

What I wish was different

I wish I was able to spend more time with other interns, but I enjoyed getting to know the other people on my team.

Advice

When you have questions on a project, do as much work as you can without asking the question, compile all of your questions in a list, and then ask them all at once. This mitigates the amount of times you will need to ask for help, and your organization will greatly benefit your team.

Tax Intern Financial Services

June - August 2019 • Philadelphia, PA

What I liked

I loved the entire experience, I loved starting the job training in Dallas, Texas and ending the internship with a trip to Orlando, Florida. Although there was a lot of hard work between these trips and I was very overwhelmed at first, everyone on my engagements was very helpful teaching me the job and very patient if I was wrong as long as I tried my best everyday.

What I wish was different

I wish I was closer to my job, I ended up commuting over an hour to get to work each day from outside of West Chester. Other than that the interview process was very stressful but entirely worth it in the end.

Advice

Although you may feel you are struggling or not doing good enough, as long as you put in your best effort everyday, the teams will notice and help you through.

IT Audit Intern

What I liked

EY invested so much into me, helping me to become not only a better employee, but also a better person.

Launch Intern

June - August 2019 • Iselin, NJ

What I liked

I loved the work environment that EY had provided to me. Everyone was incredibly hard working and driven, but were also very team-oriented. The employees were always were supportive and pushed me to be the best worker I could be!

What I wish was different

The one thing that I wish had been different about the internship was the length of the internship. The launch program was six weeks long, but I wish it were 8+ weeks long so that I could learn more about what it meant to work at EY.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions. Employers don't expect you to know everything about everything, but they do want you to be open minded and always ambitious to learn more. This is a very important quality to have and it will allow you to thrive in the future.

Audit Intern

June - August 2019 • Philadelphia, PA

What I liked

I worked with a great team, the intern events were nice and fun. I also liked the location of the office and the places close to it. The EY badges program is unique and a great way to learn about an area of interest that will be disruptive in the future. I loved how they accommodated the fact that I didn't have a driver's license when I was interning. They gave me an easy commute which made things simpler for me. The audit work wasn't hard either. It was a lot of ticking and tying out audit evidence, control forms filling, test of controls, a bit of testing accounts and setting up exhibits.

What I wish was different

I would have liked to explore different industries while I was interning but that was mainly because I didn't have a drive's license. I would have been at least 2 or 3 different engagements otherwise. I also wanted to get to know my peer advisor more but we didn't get the chance to sit down and have lunch. I was also hoping that our audit training would be more interesting.

Advice

Definitely ask questions of your team about the most efficient way to go about work, best practices and what it takes to succeed at the firm. Try to find out what their interest are so that you can make a connection with your team because it makes you feel better about going to work.

What I liked

What I wish was different

Advice

I applied to the EY ELP (Leadership Program) which after interviewing guaranteed me an internship for the following summer. It was nice to not have to worry about interviewing and applying for my entire junior year.
