Best Consulting Firms for Benefits

Every year on April 7, the World Health Organization sponsors World Health Day: a day to raise awareness for the importance of health coverage and access to health care. As World Health Day 2019 approaches, we thought we'd take a look at some of the consulting firms that rank the highest when it comes to benefits offerings.

For our 2019 consulting rankings, we asked almost 17,000 consultants at some of the world's leading firms to rank their employers in a variety of quality of life factors, on a scale of 1 to 10. With respect to their firms' benefits offerings, we asked them to consider health insurance and 401(k) plans, as well as additional incentives like on-site childcare or employee discounts at fitness centers. The following are the five best consulting firms for benefits in 2019.

1.) McKinsey & Company (Score: 9.791)

Selected quote:"McKinsey offers great compensation, but it's the benefits package to write home about. The firm is very generous with health care benefits, including covering all premiums..."

2.) The Boston Consulting Group (Score: 9.765)

Selected quote: "BCG's health insurance is unbelievable. I've had doctors shocked that my firm covers so much..."

3.) DayBlink Consulting (Score: 9.696)

Selected quote: "I have worked at many consulting firms over the years and I believe that DayBlink's benefits package is one of the best I have encountered. Insurance is fully paid for, [We even have] even pet insurance options."

4.) Bain & Company (Score: 9.613)

Selected quote: "Having eight weeks of parental leave as the nonprimary caregiving parent is huge. The health benefits are incredible. I compared [them] to the ones offered by my wife's company, and Bain's plan was much better."

5.) Putnam Associates (Score: 9.523)

Selected quote: "Competitive salary, and salary progression. Very laid back and casual culture (including dress code). Great medical insurance."
