Which firm is right for you? Well, that depends. Are you looking for a firm that focuses on cultivating a cohesive firm culture? A firm that won't make you devote every waking hour to its service? Perhaps a firm that takes sustainability seriously? Is a big pay day your biggest concern? Are you looking for a firm that takes a sink-or-swim approach to new associates, or one that bestows more formal training upon its employees?

We can tell you which firms excel in these and other areas in our annual IT quality of life rankings. Because while a prestigious company name on your resume can set you apart from the pack, it's the everyday details that often matter the most when it comes to choosing a new employer. That's why these quality of life rankings play a big role in our overall Vault IT Consulting 25, which we unveiled a few weeks ago.

In our survey, consultants were asked to rate their own firms in a variety of categories. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, respondents evaluated their firms in the following quality of life areas: Overall satisfaction, firm culture, hours in the office, work/life balance, travel requirements, relationships with supervisors, interaction with clients, formal training, promotion policies, compensation, selectivity, green initiatives, overall business outlook, and firm leadership. A firm's score in each category is simply the average of consultants' ratings of their firms in that category.

Be sure to check out all of our IT quality of life rankings here! We think you'll find them particularly helpful in your next job search.
