Best Accounting Firms to Work For

Prestige isn't everything. These are the firms accountants find the most amenable to a satisfying work experience.

  • Survey Methodology

    In addition to ranking other firms in terms of prestige, survey respondents were asked to rate their own firms in a variety of categories. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest and 1 being the lowest, respondents evaluated their firms in various "quality of life" areas. A firm's score in each category is simply the average of those rankings.

    Firms with fewer than 10 responses for any given question were excluded from that ranking category.
