Pwc Management Consulting?

Rank: Senior Baboon | 189

I have an interview coming up for a Management Consulting internship with PwC. There's not much information in the company research about this specific position, so I was hoping you all could provide some insight.

What exactly would I be doing as a management consulting intern? And what types of questions should I expect in the interview?

Thanks. I really appreciate it.

It doesn't specify the location. I believe it is a rotational program but they weren't clear about that either. I applied through on-campus recruiting. I'm a finance major at a big state school.

The interviews are entirely fit/personality. Expect questions like why consulting, why PwC..the usual.

As for your role as an intern, it depends on the luck of the draw. Most interns get staffed on a local client, so you could be doing legitimate work, but an unlucky few get stuck doing an odd assortment of small tasks. Chances are you'll do quite a bit of Excel and PowerPoint work, as well as digging through SEC filings.

Brofalfa, does PwC not do case interviews?? I'm not too famliar with the firm either, but it surprises me that a management consulting arm of a Big 4 would not do case interviews. Then again, I just started the recruitment process, so I don't know as much about the Big 4.

As far as I know, the majority of PwC advisory does not do case interviews at the associate level. My experience was a first round behavioral interview on campus, and then three behavioral interviews on the superday. The only positions I can think of that might do cases would be the former Diamond groups. I'm surprised the OP is interviewing for a "Management Consulting" internship...usually they place you into a specific group right away like Finance Effectiveness, M&A, Risk, etc.

Intern interviews did not have cases, behavioral and smaller logic "fuck-with-you" questions. @Brofala, i worked "in the diamon group w/diamond people" and it's become a part of PwC advisory's overall hiring process so at least for interns, there is no way to differentiate if you're going to be working with Diamond peeps or not.

Gordo, PM me for more info [summer internship @ PwC advisory + probably going back FT next summer].
