Moss Adams Becomes a Part of the Big 5, No Doubt Because of the Company's Hard Work, Dedication, and Culture.
Seattle, WA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


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.


Downers

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.

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.

Moss Adams: Gaining the Full Tax Experience (And Then Some!)
Seattle, WA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people, the work, and the many firm events


Downers

Not having enough work to always feel busy, and that it couldn't last longer


Advice to Potential Interns

Don't pick a firm based solely on its reputation; make sure to find the right fit for you and don't let people sway you into a choice that may not be best.

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.

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.

Memorable and exceptional experience
Los Angeles, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Getting to know fellow employees/interns. Also learning about los angeles' business processes


Downers

The traffic


Advice to Potential Interns

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.


Advice to Management

Not much, Moss Adams did a great job with everything. I would say allowing interns to work overtime.

Shannon getting her feet wet and really experiencing life as a MA staff
San Diego, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

actually getting into audits, going to the client, not just doing busy work


Downers

we did not get as many reviews as I hoped. Maybe give an evaluation once a week so we can learn and grow from it


Advice to Potential Interns

MA knows how to get and keep people. MA wants you to love to work, not HAVE to work.


Advice to Management

Maybe do more intensive hands on training. Felt very uneasy going to my first client.

I enjoyed working with a wonderful group of audit professionals in a friendly and encouraging environment.
San Jose, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

One of the best aspects of the internship were the people I met. I met so many kind people at the office. I enjoyed being around such positive and encouraging people. Another highlight was working on real audits and going to fieldwork. It was exciting to use what I had learned and see the finished product of an audit.


Downers

I enjoyed my internship thoroughly. I only wish I could have stayed longer but I had to go back to school.


Advice to Potential Interns

Moss Adams is nice place to work and the people there are friendly and professional. They want you to succeed and they will help you perform well.


Sample Interview Questions

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!
