OP what about your snapshot was shitty? Did you get an "At Level" in everything? If so, that's not shitty, that's expected for an intern. That said I do agree that feedback should have been given to you in person - whether good, bad or indifferent. I would, even now, seek out your manager and get some one on one feedback from him/her. Lastly, not sure how PwC works but at S&, we ignore the snapshots. Instead we focus on intellectual capacity, attitude and coach ability for undergrad interns.

@bcg1 And this is why if OP goes to a F500 firm he/she will probably never bring pwc or strategy& in for consulting work. Notice how at MBB, this tradition of blaming the intern never happens? And that's why we're big 4. Getting all triggered because @op said something mean about our firms. Most of you never stopped to think maybe the firm could have been at fault too. But even if the firm wasn't at fault, can't you still show some empathy and grace and not shit on @op? Consulting in the big4 really brings out the worst in people.

Snapshots aren't the tool to get feedback, someone should have told you that. You're supposed to be proactive in asking for feedback, with snapshots being a formality; that's the norm in consulting. Can't tell if you did that based off your post but makes a huge diff to your story

Felt the same way when I interned. Absolute piece of shit. I got put on a project that was no travel, I was remote for 7/8 weeks. Barely did any work. Note that I turned down an IB offer to do it- because I'd already done a finance internship the year before. Can you believe- our return offer was for $65k. 3k signing bonus. Ha! What a joke. That year, my BCG offer was for >$76k. The kicker is that even my friends who went to Deloitte or ACN got $72k. It's a shitty firm. You can do better, OP. Good luck- good on you for realizing!

Tbh op you probably weren't pleasant to work with. Everyone is busy, and the only way as an intern you're going to get someone to take time out of their day to have a feedback conversation is if you actively seek it and come to work with a positive attitude. Sounds like your team just didn't want to work with you.

Do a basic google search and everyone will tell you the keys to a successful internship are asking for genuine feedback often from everyone on your team, and showing strong progress towards the feedback. Snapshot is a joke, you want time to react and adapt to feedback before someone logs a formal appraisal for you... that being said S& ignores snapshot results, not sure what PwC does with them (hopefully burn them all).

You're a dick because you're shitting on an entire firm for an experience that probably wasn't on them. Big 4 is notorious for great internship programs, don't blame PwC for your own inability to work with a team or a tough project. Welcome to consulting

So tired of interns who speak like partners and act like they are on top of the world. On our status call today, our intern literally asked our staff “why did it take you a day to finish this cuz I can do it within an hour” (which turned out to be a false statement), and when our senior said she’s gonna create a task for EP sign-offs, our intern asked if she could do the same for him so that it’s easier for him to navigate through the work papers. OMG
