Best Consulting Firms in Each Practice Area

Consultants across the nation rate the top firms in their practice areas.

    Vault asked consultants to rank the best firms in several areas of business focus. These areas are economic consulting, energy consulting, financial consulting, human resources consulting, management consulting, operations consulting, pharmaceutical and health care consulting, public sector consulting, and strategy consulting. Consultants were allowed to vote for up to three firms as the best in each area, but could NOT vote for their own firm.
