Pros:

-E&Y internship program was very well organized and you always feel like they have everything perfectly planned out for you.

Nothing, great program. I seemed to have the best internship out of all my accounting friends that interned at other big 4 firms.

Pros:

- Helpful training before client engagement. My first day at my client site, I wasn’t exactly sure what project I was going to be working on and the entire workflow process. My team showed me the ropes and was extremely helpful (lots of previous summer interns that are now fulltime).
- My team members took the time to explain how the projects I was working on impacted the client both in financial reporting, but also how it impacted the clients business in general. This was great to understand.
- Ernst and Young sends interns to a Orlando, Fl for the Internship leadership Conference. Awesome time. The CEO stopped by the pool and hungout with us! And, a group of us went to Disney World.

Cons:

The only thing is that I wished I saw more client businesses, but I realize that it's impossible to squeeze all this in over a summer.

Advice for other students:

- By the end of the summer, I felt confident in what I was doing.
- I think this will lead to an entry level job offer.
- Great internship program and well organized. You can tell that the company takes it seriously.
