Vault Consulting 50

The Vault Consulting 50 is our signature list of the best consulting firms to work for.

  • 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 50 is based on the following weighted formula:

    25 percent firm culture
    25 percent work/life balance
    20 percent compensation
    20 percent prestige
    5 percent overall business outlook
    5 percent transparency
