Best Consulting Firms to Work For

Which firms fare best on these individual rankings of key employment factors?
Survey Methodology

When it comes to a satisfying work experience, there are many different factors that come into play--everything from a job's ability to challenge an employee and the training and mentoring to the number of hours spent working or travelling each week, and the compensation that the employee takes home for doing their job. All told, we have identified 22 separate "Best to Work For" factors--each of which is represented by its own ranking. These rankings help to build a picture of the firms consultants find the most amenable to a fulfilling, satisfying work experience.

Survey respondents were asked to rate their own firm across a variety of factors that affect their daily working lives. Those factors are:

Exit Opportunities
Firm Culture
Firm Leadership
Formal Training
Health & Wellness
Hours in the Office
Informal Training
Interaction with Clients
Internal Mobility
International Opportunities
Level of Challenge
Overall Business Outlook
Promotion Policies
Relationships with Supervisors
Travel Requirements
Work/Life Balance

Firms were then ranked in each category based on the average rating assigned by their own consultants.
