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.

Highly doubt if this is even legit. Clear instructions were given not to have interns work more than 8 hours a day or any overtime as they won't be eligible for it. From what i have been hearing and seeing in my local office, the interns seem to be having an awesome fun time. Anyways guess OP got into the wrong team or did something significantly wrong!

No idea about OP's situation, but for any other interns reading and getting scared, it's REALLY hard not to get an offer and you have to pretty much actively screw something up.

PwC10 I'm a current advisory intern and have worked in excess of 60 hours per week more times than I haven't this summer. Not complaining though as it hourly and make 1.5x. My engagement needs the extra set of hands so maybe it's approved.

Part of being a consultant is eating it. When the client is crazy everyone suffers, from the partner down to the associate. Unless your weekend work was absolutely unnecessarily created by your manager (doubtful, as everyone's too busy to make up work for an intern) it just sounds like you had the misfortune of being on a crazy client. When that happens, your job is to do everything really well so that you take the burden off the rest of the team. I had an intern this summer that most likely had a horrible experience because we couldn't trust him with more advanced work. He was terrible on delivering basic things without typos and errors and it was clear that he thought he deserved better. Maybe so, but you have to earn the team's trust.

Deloitte and ACN got 10k signing and 12k respectively, mind you. Ugh.

PwC is actually pretty competitive with starting salaries these days, maybe within $5k. They fuck you on other benefits though, like the vesting period for your 401k.

like

BCG1, you must've gotten the offer two years ago. Literally the year after, PwC started first years at $75k in the same cities that used to be $65k and had a $10k signing bonus also. Grats on BCG but it's hard to judge a whole firm on a handful of vocal experiences

Technically you only go on the Disney trip if you're offered a position. And that's an obvious project issue, not PwC. My intern loved her summer 🙃 she only worked 8 hrs a day and got to do our fun team activities with us.

@S3 The OP didn't land an offer we give 95% of our interns, then blamed it on the firm. Anyone that dumb is going to make PLENTY more enemies over the next 10-15 years and we'll barely be a blip on the radar.

Sorry to hear that they convinced you to use snapshot for primary feedback though, good lesson learned maybe?

@S& I agree I should've asked for feedback but when I'm told that this is how to go about it and asked for them to do it 2 weeks ago with reminders 3x a week it indicated there's not much to fix. I had to have three filled out in a 7 week period so if I wasn't hitting their expectations I don't think it's on me

How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?
