    Pros

    Management seemed to care about the employees; they provided weekly breakfast, monthly birthday celebrations, social activities, and quarterly update meetings.

    Cons

    The offices were dark, not the best set up to stay connected to coworkers, though I understand this has been addressed since I left.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on employees. I never ran into anyone who had a bad thing to say about working at Moss Adams. I think that says it all.

    I worked at Moss Adams LLP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - 20 days PTO for non-manager CSS roles
    - 401(k) company match & profit sharing
    - work from home flexibility
    - annual ~3% bonus in January
    - specifically within my team, great camaraderie

    Cons

    I absolutely loved my job and manager at Moss Adams, and I would've loved to stay at the company longer than I did. While there is an extremely set in stone and clear cut path for the accountants and tax professionals, promotions within CSS are totally dependent on "business need." In my 1.5 years at Moss Adams, I did not see one marketing professional get promoted. When I brought it up with my manager, I was informed that it "does not matter if my competencies are there, it could be years before I'd earn a promotion." Unfortunately, as an eager professional looking to move up in the ranks--and as someone who is good at cranking out copious amounts of quality work--this lack of opportunity does not work for me. There are many "entry level" professionals at Moss who have been in their roles for 5+ years without movement, and have asked leadership for guidance on "getting to the next level."

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your CSS professionals more--and reward them for it. Annual 3% raises in cities like Seattle, LA and SF just aren't enough anymore.

    Pros

    Great benefits.
    Open concept seating even partners don’t have an office so everyone can have a seat with a view.
    Great snacks.
    Get to work with lots of advisors and see how they handle different problems.

    Cons

    The expectations from advisors is vastly different and it is hard to figure out what they want.

    Advice to Management

    Get the advisors synced up on expectations.
