Best Consulting Firms to Work For

Which firms fare best on these individual rankings of key employment factors?

  • Survey Methodology

    Which are the best firms to work for? For some, this is a far more important consideration than prestige. To determine our Best 15 Firms to Work For, we used a formula that weighed the most relevant categories for an overall quality of life ranking. Each firm's overall score was calculated using the following formula:

    * 50 percent satisfaction
    * 10 percent hours
    * 10 percent pay
    * 10 percent manager relations
    * 10 percent diversity (women, minorities and gays)
    * 10 percent formal training

    Like our Top 40 prestige rankings, our Best 20 is meant to reflect the subjective opinion of insiders. By its nature, the list is based on the perceptions of insiders'some of whom may be biased in favor (or against) their firm.
