Discovery Tax Intern

June - July 2022 • San Diego, CA

What I liked

My internship didn't expect me to know a lot about accounting/taxes and took that into account, I didn't do any client work but I was able to shadow people in the office (sitting in on team meetings, meetings with clients, and watching preparation of workpapers) with staff, seniors, managers, and partners. I was able to go to the office as much or as little as I wanted, it was very flexible on working from home or in the office.

What I wish was different

I was the only person doing my internship in my office since I was based in one of the firm's smaller offices. My internship was meant to be done fully virtually, or at least that you could do everything for the internship without ever coming in to the office, although I was still able to come in to the office whenever I wanted. I just wish the internship had been more involved with people or other interns from the office I was based in, rather than a national/regional organization.

Advice

Its an absolutely great experience. Go to the office as much as you can, it makes the experience a lot better when you get to meet people in person in the office, whether its at the snack drawer, coffee machine, or if you try to schedule coffee runs or lunches with people in the office. Being around people gave me a much better experience. Also, take initiative and ask people to be able to shadow them, email people you've met and see if they'll let you sit in on any of their meetings with their teams or clients, or if you can watch someone doing workpapers. Most people won't mind and will send you a bunch of invites for meetings, or they will reach out to other people who may have things for you to shadow.

Risk and Financial Advisory Intern

June - July 2022 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I liked that Deloitte took me and my fellow interns to many social events to network with each other. It made up for the fact that all of us were staffed on different teams and mostly did remote work (so we didn't have many opportunities to see each other).

What I wish was different

I wished I was placed on a team where I could be more involved with the project work. Due to security clearance issues, I was not able to access client servers and could not contribute to the team project. I also wish I was given more work. Most of the time, I was left to do trainings or network with professionals because I had no assignments from my supervisor.

Advice

Network with as many people as possible, and make sure to follow up with them even after your internship ends. Take advantage of every opportunity to meet new people.

Summer Solution Scholar

June - August 2022 • Orlando, FL

What I liked

Very reasonable work-life balance, work from home, great support from recruiters

What I wish was different

After being handed over to my assigned project, the project team dropped the ball and just passed me from supervisor to supervisor because they weren't sure what to do with an intern. This resulted me in getting paid to do nothing for over 80% of the 10 week internship.

Advice

After chatting with my fellow interns, not everyone had experience like mine, so it seems like luck plays a big part of how your experience will turn out.

Business Tax Services Intern

June - August 2022 • Baltimore, MD

What I liked

I enjoyed the staff at the Baltimore office. They were friendly and social.

What I wish was different

I wish the internship had not been completely online, even though they told us we would be in office. They should have informed applicants of the work mode prior to our start. Additionally, I wish we got more work. I was only able to assist on small tasks. When I asked if anyone had anything I could help with, I was always told not at this time. Last thing I did not enjoy was that my coach was stationed in another state 4 hours away. She never coached me or assigned me work. In the beginning I had a lot of questions she could not answer. It was not a good learning environment in my opinion.

Advice

I would just keep asking for work even if there is none. Keep in mind the big 4 isn’t always what it’s cut out to be. Please do more research on current employees thoughts before committing.

Audit Intern

June - August 2021 • Richmond, VA

What I liked

The culture, experience, and respect from everyone involved. I got to work on things I've never imagined and received very meaningful advice from every single person there. Each staff member went out of their way to make sure I had a good experience at Deloitte.

What I wish was different

I wish it never ended!

Advice

Be extremely open to feedback and be willing to grow. This is the number one thing that will help you (1) get hired, but more importantly (2) succeed in public accounting for the long-term.

Tax Intern

June - August 2021 • Cleveland, OH

What I liked

I liked the atmosphere of the workplace. Even being virtual we had multiple events were we could interact with other tax professionals and other tax interns on a frequent basis.

What I wish was different

It would have been nice to have more in person events but due to Covid these were really limited.

Advice

For anyone that interns anywhere or especially at Deloitte, connect with everyone that you can. Everyone has a great story of how they got to were they are at in there career and how they end up at the company. Not everyone takes the same path and the more connections you have the easier it is to reach out when you have questions. I would say a huge thing now in this virtual world is 15 minute zoom meetings just to chat about anything, you can simply talk about what you did over the weekend but that 15 minutes puts a face to your name and makes strong connections even when you can't work in the office.

What I liked

I love the high paced environment and the amount of freedom the team gave me in my work. Every person I met from Deloitte was incredible.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have spent more time in person but the role itself was a wonderful experience.

Advice

Setting your own schedule and sticking to it is incredibly important. I would suggest that even if you are working remotely, you have a place to go to work.
