Vault's annual consulting survey is now well underway and, as usual, our consultants have plenty to say about their competitors! We ask consultants to detail their observations of other firms, which we publish in our company profiles as The Buzz. In selecting quotes, we opt for a balanced approach, choosing quotes that are representative of the majority opinion—both positive and…less positive.

Here are a few choice Buzz comments about our top firms that have come through so far. Can you guess which firm these are describing? (Note that while consultants seem to love to trash their fellow firms, they're still giving them high marks in the prestige department!)

"Work-hard, play-hard, youthful culture"

"Frat party focused on fashion."

"Highest compensation, lousiest culture and atmosphere."

"Consistently have to prove they're smarter: they're not. But they have a great brand."

"Somewhat technical in approach. Nerdy.""A mile wide and an inch deep."

Our survey is still going on, and we'd love to hear from you! Here is the list of firms included in our survey. If you work at one of those firms, we want your feedback!

You may have already received a request from your company to participate in this survey. But if you haven’t, please contact us and we’ll be happy to send you the survey link!
