Europe: Best Consulting Firms in Each Practice Area
For the 2009 Vault European Consulting survey, we selected a
list of top consulting firms to include. These consulting firms
were selected because of their prominence in the consulting
industry and their interest to consulting job seekers. This year,
over 2,400 consultants participated in our survey.
The Vault survey was distributed to the firms on Vault's list in
spring 2009. In some cases, Vault contacted practicing consultants
directly. Survey respondents were asked to do several things. They
were asked to rate each consulting firm on the survey on a scale of
1 to 10 based on prestige, with 10 being the most prestigious.
Consultants were unable to rate their own firm. They were asked to
rate only those firms with which they were familiar.
Vault collected the survey results and averaged the score for
each firm. The firms were then ranked, with the highest score being
No. 1, down to No. 25.
Remember that Vault's top-25 European consulting firms are
chosen by practicing consultants at top consulting firms. Vault
does not choose or influence the rankings. The rankings measure
perceived prestige (as determined by consulting professionals) and
not revenue, size or lifestyle.
