Vault Accounting 50

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

When Vault asks accounting 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. In addition to prestige, accounting professionals find the following factors extremely important: firm culture, type of work, location, work/life balance, compensation, business outlook, and training opportunities.

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 accounting firms deemed the Best to Work For. The Vault Accounting 50 is based on the following:

  • 40 percent prestige
  • 20 percent firm culture
  • 10 percent work/life balance
  • 10 percent compensation
  • 10 percent overall job satisfaction
  • 5 percent business outlook
  • 5 percent formal training
