Pros

People at Moss Adams are extremely bright and intelligent. You are surrounded by competent, hardworking professionals who will help you build and develop your career.

Cons

There is an unwritten guideline which is strictly followed by management about promotions and advancements based solely on the number of busy seasons worked at the firm. This leads to some people promoted too early and others too late.

Advice to Management

Need to base promotions on performance on the job, not strictly years of service.

    Pros

    Good pay, very relevant training at the right time, nice raises, opportunities to teach and get promoted, scheduling works very well. It is the perfect place for those who want a long-lasting career in public accounting. The life balance is very good (no, really!).

    Cons

    This office is very conservative. While very professional, it doesn't have much personality and can get boring. The promotion time lines are slower than at other competitors. The benefits are slightly worse than at other competitors. The new coffee machine sucks. The places to eat around the office mostly suck and many are overpriced.

    Advice to Management

    Should consider jeans/casual Friday. The office environment could be more relaxed. The new coffee machine is terrible.

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

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    There 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 Management

    The 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.
