What do you do when you get a bad performance review as an intern? I feel like I’m not being given much guidance but the feedback is that I should be driving the case more. Will I not get an offer?

I don’t know which firm you are at, but at PwC the focus is on trajectory, not point-in-time performance. If you can show that you took the feedback and improved in a meaningful way, then it’s ok. If you don’t show improvement then this probably isn’t the right career for you

Are you asking for guidance?

I don’t think that’s a bad review to be honest. Every review you have should highlight strengths and what you need to improve on. You can always ask if that’s a concern, and next time say that you heard the feedback and be specific about how you tried to address. Also your reaction is so normal, there are even memes about interns feeling this way lol. And you still feel that way for a while...so...welcome to the working world! Lol

Articling student in Canada (8 month internship with potential hireback), currently doing transactional work. I’m WFH and having a hard time building relationships with partners. I’m friendly/chat with associates and am on great terms with one partner who gives me work often, but not much else. The firm “encourages” reaching out to partners to chat, though I’ve tried and been essentially ignored. Partners rarely have enough time to give me feedback, so I feel they don’t have time to chat.

I have a supervisor who nitpicks things the way you would for an intern or a junior and I’m trying to navigate. I had a positive 6 month review recently so I think she sees it as constructive rather than cutting me down. For example, she will ask me to attend a meeting in her stead or write an email for her and she will completely edit my notes or my email not spelling errors or anything but completely reformatting and there’s no real pattern to the way she does it so I’m not learning.
