Summer Intern Discovers Public Accounting to be More About People than Numbers
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Some of the best times I had during the internship were with my fellow interns in our shared conference room. It was really helpful to have that shared space where we could become comfortable with one another and rely on each other for assistance if needed.

Another great part of the internship revolves around my experience with the employees at Moss Adams. No matter who I worked with, whether it was upper management or staff, I found myself amazed at their willingness to nurture and teach the interns. I learned so much from them, not only about how to succeed in accounting but also in how to best utilize my time at the firm. They enriched my experience beyond words.


Downers

Parking was $10 a day and our monthly stipend only paid $90. Rough on the wallet.


Advice to Potential Interns

Do not apply for public accounting if you think you can just sit behind a desk all day and never talk to people. Whether it is the client or your fellow employees, interpersonal communication is of the utmost importance. I watched people struggle internally every day because they were expected to actually leave their workspace and interact with others.

Do not let a perceived lack of academic knowledge prevent you from applying for Moss Adams. They have an excellent training program which is fortified by an experienced staff who is committed to seeing you learn and grow.


Advice to Management

Keep it up. I know more conference rooms are planned to be built, which is a great idea.

The best possible way I could have spent my summer.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people at the firm made it very enjoyable. I was able to ask questions openly and be myself around all of the other staff, seniors, managers, and even partners. Everyone was really easy to get along with.


Downers

On one occasion I was given a particularly tedious task which is never fun but that's the nature of the job.


Advice to Potential Interns

Moss Adams is an amazing firm and they go out of their way to be as accommodating as possible.

Moss Adams: My preferred employer with the best experience possible and the greatest company culture
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects of the internship were having the ability to work on a variety of projects that a staff accountant would be working, my co-workers were great to work with and extremely helpful, the flexibility with my schedule, and the training process was designed to effectively allow me to do well on my projects without overloading me with information.


Downers

What I liked least was some of the projects were overwhelming at first, but remember that everyone has been in your shoes and will be willing to help you.


Advice to Potential Interns

Do not be afraid to ask questions. You are trying to find an organization that you fit well with not just a place to work. Moss Adams truly cares about its employees and wants the best for all of them. I would not want to work for anyone else.


Advice to Management

I think the only thing would be about the training because I did not get the full initial training with the office only because of my school schedule. I do not, however, think it affected my performance.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Advice to Potential Interns

Don't focus on what an internship has to offer in the moment. Really think about what opportunities it offers for a full time position.

Compensation is at a fair rate but could be a bit higher

Great people to work with, very inclusive laid back culture.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Getting to get hands on tax experience.


Downers

I loved everything about my internship. If you are planning to do a career in accounting, there are some things implicit in public accounting like working long hours, and hierarchical structure. Moss Adams does thier best to provide a great experience and will treat you better than any other firm.


Advice to Potential Interns

Keep in mind hours are usually long in accounting. I have friends who work at big 4 and they work more hours and get less benefits than thier Moss Adams counterparts.
