I loved the amount of work I was able to do and the help the experienced staff gave me. The training in disneyland was fun because all the interns for the firm were able to meet each other and create a network going forward. Participating in and planning different activities for Food Frenzy in Washington. Meeting with so many different employees at Moss Adams and growing my network. Being in a space where people were helpful, welcoming, and fun.
I did not get challenged as much as I would have like to. I could have been assigned more difficult tax returns to wrestle with. Training was either long and basic which was boring or short and complex so we didn't have enought time to understand what we were learning.
Advice to Potential Interns
If you want to go into public accounting, Moss Adams would be my very first choice, even over big 4 firms. They treat you like a friend and human being instead of a person who is solely their to get their work done no matter how long it takes. They take pride in their value on people and the community of Moss Adams is second to none. Once you receive an internship, give it everything you have. It isn't that long, but there is so much to learn if you put your whole heart into it. Don't leave with regrets.
Advice to Management
The only issue I have is training which I already addressed. It needs to have a greater impact by giving us more time on some of the complex training, and maybe skipping the broad, surface level training, or at least cutting it way down (SIP training).
