The Vault Guide to the Top 25 Consulting Firms, European Edition has arrived for 2014--the eighth edition of this invaluable career guide. Vault's experts have composed this essential resource of leading European consultancies, covering both international powerhouses and boutique specialists alike. The top-25 firms have been ranked via an exclusive Vault survey of industry peers, compiled with feedback from more than 2,500 active consultants.
With the ongoing economic woes in the European Union, consultants operating in the region face a unique set of pressures: not only must they be comfortable with operating in an environment where austerity remains the watchword; consultants must also have a thorough knowledge of the wider political situation, and be capable of understanding how the shifting ideas and whims of governments across the region could affect their clients' business, and the strategies and decisions that shape them.
Under those circumstances, choosing the right firm is more challenging than ever before. How can you tell which firms are growing, or those that are still investing in their employees' development, despite the wider economic picture? Within this guide, you will find the answers to those questions, and more—and all from the people best positioned to answer them: the employees of the consulting firms themselves. Those insights, plus exclusive insights from Vault's editors, make this guide an essential tool for anyone considering a career in the consulting industry in Europe.
