Vault Consulting 25 Europe

Which are the best consulting firms to work for in Europe?

  • Survey Methodology

    There is no question that prestige is important when choosing an employer. At the same time, we have found that prestige alone is not always the determining factor. It is clear that the selection criteria highly credentialed candidates use to choose a new employer have changed significantly. Did you know that for 43% of consulting firm candidates firm culture was the most important factor in selecting an employer? Other top factors include practice strength and work-life balance, in addition to prestige and compensation.

    In order to properly reflect the rising importance of these selection criteria to in-demand candidates evaluating consulting career options, the Vault Consulting 25 Europe is based on the following weighted formula:

    30 per cent prestige
    15 per cent firm culture
    15 per cent compensation
    15 per cent satisfaction
    15 per cent work/life balance
    10 per cent overall business outlook
