Everything is MOSSome!
San Diego, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Seeing the unity and collaboration of the entire firm to dedicate themselves to their interns is unexpected. At the Summer Internship Program was amazing to see the interaction of all the offices. Especially, having partners from several offices attend and give presentation was really rewarding and inspiring. Working so closely with all the partners throughout the internship was unexpected. I interned at a local firm before and I did not get this much partner interaction.


Downers

Nothing. Everything really went beyond expectations.


Advice to Potential Interns

Everyone at this firm is dedicated to your growth. It's an atmosphere that promotes learning and challenges, which is extremely rewarding. You'll have the support of not just the regional office but of the entire firm to handle any challenges.

Impact: Moss Adams interns add value to clients and the community
Seattle, WA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspect is that interns have direct impact. I got to prepare whole returns that went directly to the client after being reviewed by another staff and a partner. Being part of that team delivering such a tangible service is a very rewarding feeling.


Downers

I wish the internship could have lasted longer, but I realize that it couldn't start any earlier without excluding some colleges' students.


Advice to Potential Interns

The people at Moss Adams really are as great as the people you meet on campus. Also, don't shy away from the smaller size of the firm because the breadth of experience you will get is so much greater at first and you will get to decide where your career goes, which will be much more valuable 10 years into your career because you will be personally invested in and passionate about your work.

Uppers

I was thoroughly impressed with how much help i received even when I wasn't asking for it. People are busy and stressed, but they always have time to sit down and help you or answer any questions.

I was disappointed it ended. I wish I could continue to intern during my last year of school.


Advice to Potential Interns

Moss Adams treats interns as people of value. We aren't only doing busy work, we actually participate in testing and engage with clients. They as much time and effort into an intern as they do a full time staff.

The Most Unforgettable Summer Of My Life
Los Angeles, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

- The firm culture: the people at Moss Adams actually care about getting to know you. The partners, managers and staff care about your career development and they care about your overall experience as an intern.

- Learning about the profession: as an intern you are treated as first-year staff and get learn the fundamentals of audits and reviews for many sections of the financial statements including Cash, A/P, Fixed Assets, etc.. Some sections are challenging but staff is always there and ready to help!

- The social activities: interns have the opportunity to expand their professional network on trips to Disneyland and Catalina Island with the firm, training at Huntington Beach and Partner Dinners and BBQ's all around L.A.

- My intern class: I walked in to the office on my first day with 12 strangers that over the past 8 weeks have become some of my best friends.


Downers

- LA Traffic. It comes with living in the city.


Advice to Potential Interns

- Work hard in school, do your research on the firm before Meet the Firms/interviews and just be yourself!

Exciting
Seattle, WA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The opportunity to work with a variety of people. All of whom were helpful, encouraging, and fun to be around.


Downers

There was more downtime than I expected.


Advice to Potential Interns

Moss Adams is not just about working hard. It is also about working as a team, getting to know your coworkers (both in and out of the office), and continually developing your skills. If you want to go far in auditng, Moss Adams will help you get there.


Sample Interview Questions

During the second round interviews the "questions" were meant to get an idea of your personality. There would be a routine question or two, like "why did you choose accounting," but the bulk of the interview was a short conversation.

Be yourself and be able to have a mature conversation with interviewers. It is not all about the qualifications but your personality and how well you can get along with the employees and interns.

Great mentor/buddy program that provided solid career advising
Tacoma, WA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Great people, culture, and work place environment. The FT employees are more than willing to give you any advice need and take a genuine interest in your career.


Downers

I wish I spent more time with my career advisor, I did not meet with her once.


Advice to Potential Interns

Start right away connecting with the FT employees of the office and try to find a mentor on your own. That person is a valuable resource that I continue to use even after the internship has ended.
