Vault Accounting 50

This VAULT ACCOUNTING 50 is compiled using a weighted formula that reflects the issues accounting professionals care most about, combining quality of life rankings (such as culture, satisfaction, work/life balance, and compensation) with overall prestige.

  • Survey Methodology

    Last year, when Vault asked accounting professionals what matters most to them in choosing an employer, they told us that although prestige is important, it's not the most important determining factor. In fact, 36.3 percent of all accounting professionals we surveyed told us "firm culture" was the most important factor, while only 11.4 percent cited "prestige" as most important. Other top factors, in order of importance, were: lifestyle/work-balance (13.8 percent), location (12.71 percent), compensation (5 percent) and training opportunities (4.8 percent).

    As a result of these findings, Vault has compiled a weighted formula that reflects the issues job seekers care about most. We believe that this formula showcases those accounting firms deemed the "Best to Work For". The Vault Accounting 50 is based on the following:

    40 percent prestige
    20 percent firm culture
    10 percent overall satisfaction
    10 percent compensation
    10 percent hours
