Best Consulting Firms in Europe to Work For

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

  • Survey Methodology

    When it comes to a satisfying work experience, there are many different factors that come into play--everything from a job's ability to challenge an employee and the training and mentoring on offer, to the number of hours spent working or travelling each week, and the compensation that the employee takes home for doing their job. All told, we have identified 23 separate "Best to Work For" factors--each of which is represented by its own ranking. These rankings help to build a picture of the firms consultants find the most amenable to a fulfilling, satisfying work experience.

    Survey respondents were asked to rate their own firm across a variety of factors that affect their daily working lives. Those factors are:

    Ability to Challenge
    Benefits
    Business Outlook
    Compensation
    Exit Opportunities
    Firm Culture
    Firm Leadership
    Formal Training
    Green Policies
    Hours in the Office
    Informal Training
    Innovation in the Industry
    Interaction with Clients
    Internal Mobility
    International Opportunities
    Philanthropy
    Promotion Policies
    Relationships with Supervisors
    Satisfaction
    Selectivity
    Travel Requirements
    Vacation Policies*
    Work-Life Balance

    Firms were then ranked in each category based on the average rating assigned by their own consultants.
