Vault Banking 50

The VAULT BANKING 50 is compiled using a weighted formula that reflects the issues banking professionals care most about, combining quality of life rankings (such as culture, satisfaction, work/life balance, training, and compensation) with overall prestige.

  • Survey Methodology

    When Vault asks banking professionals what matters most to them in choosing an employer, they continually tell us that although prestige is important, it's not the only determining factor. As a result of these findings, Vault has compiled a weighted formula that reflects the issues job seekers care about most. We believe that this formula showcases those banking firms deemed the Best to Work For.

    The Vault Banking 50 is based on the following: 40 percent prestige, 20 percent firm culture, 10 percent compensation, 10 percent business outlook, 10 percent overall satisfaction, 5 percent work/life balance, and 5 percent training.
