Great challenging job, often fun, but managers can be disrespectful, brutal, and even a bit mean.

Consulting Manager (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsThe work is very interesting. Projects are fun and challenging. The firm hires smart, talented people. Anyone, regardless of where they are in their career can learn a lot about business. Employees can strengthen their ability to analyze and interpret information allowing them to solve complex business issues for clients. Employees can learn a great deal from their managers and partners. The partners and employees deliver high quality audit and consulting services.

ConsThere is only major downside to working at Moss Adams. Managers can be very rude. They are allowed to raise their voice and use foul language with staff when they are angry, even in front of peers. Hateful communications occur face-to-face and through voice mails and emails. This behavior is allowed even when managers have erred in their conclusions due to misinterpreting the facts or receiving bad information. There is no such thing as an apology. These same managers often refuse to hear explanations leaving the offending employee unable to address the horrible comments. Employees have no recourse but to wait until the manager "gets over it" or moves onto screaming at another staff member. This is extremely demotivating. Even employees with successful track records of completing projects on time and on budget and gaining referenceable clients are treated in this manner by some partners, even managing partners.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe firm should adopt a zero tolerance policy prohibiting screaming and/or foul language in all business communications especially when disciplining staff. Management can discipline and communicate critical performance issues in a professional manner even when the message is highly punitive. In cases where managers scream and swear at staff, ensure employees know how to safely report the event in a timely manner, not having to wait for upstream reviews which might be months later.

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

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Scottsdale, AZ

    I have been working at Moss Adams LLP

    Pros: Small enough firm you get a firmer grasp on the fundamentals and get to work closely with clients. Similar… Cons: Compensation is low and definitely not linked with the market (public and private industry). There are no bonuses for bringing in business or coming in… Advice to Senior Management: Partners do not operate the firm as a "business" and instead make many short term decisions that are dilutive to the value of the firm.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    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
