Not the way to build a long term career in business if you don't like politics

Senior Manager (Current Employee) Scottsdale, AZ

ProsSmall enough firm you get a firmer grasp on the fundamentals and get to work closely with clients.
Similar office locations to Big 4 and other colleagues
Strong firm wide training for professionals
Great place to start your career.

ConsCompensation is low and definitely not linked with the market (public and private industry). There are no bonuses for bringing in business or coming in under budget in each office.
Partners do not pass their knowledge down to professional staff or encourage them/by showing them how to network and close deals earlier than at the mid-senior manager level. This is career limiting as a partner to be.
Firm offices are often disorganized and client scheduling is messy and controlled by the clients instead of managed actively.
Talented staff are assigned to the highest grossing partner, as opposed to by engagement, as a result partners take on more risk than needed.

Advice to Senior ManagementPartners do not operate the firm as a "business" and instead make many short term decisions that are dilutive to the value of the firm. The firm should refocus on people and ensure the firm and the partners are investing in growing the knowledge base of the professional staff on a continuous basis and balance that with attracting new clients. No sense on attracting new clients when you don't have competent professional staff to perform the work. This has been lost over the last decade and there is now a significant gap to fill that will take time. Focus on long term partner and firm growth through training and retention of staff. Remember during economic expansions the professional staff will leave if they do not have a reason to stay. Give them a reason to stay and be accretive to the firms bottom line and legacy.

    Was not happy with the way administrative team was viewed by management.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at Moss Adams LLP


    Pros: Good benefits package. Flexible work arrangements available. Cons: The management group viewed the administrative team at the same level as staff right out of college. Discouraging for some as they have many years… Advice to Senior Management: Be honest. Treat "all" your employees well. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    Respected firm with great opportunities for smart and motivated individuals.

    IT Audit Manager (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Moss Adams LLP


    Pros: In the markets where Moss Adams dominates (Seattle, Portland, Albequerque), Moss Adams is almost like a big 4 employer. Everyone knows them, they are… Cons: Like any professional services firm, you need to have a thick skin sometimes to deal with the pressure and the focused feedback on performance. … Advice to Senior Management: Continue building a trusted brand, and expanding into western markets. Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
