Vault Rankings Methodology

Every year, we ask employees to rate their own firms on a scale of 1 to 10 based on firm culture, compensation, work/life balance, overall business outlook, satisfaction, and 15 additional employment factors. We also asked consultants to rate the prestige of peer firms and to select the strongest firms in 15 specific practice areas; for the prestige and practice area rankings, consultants were unable to rate or vote for their own firms. The Vault Consulting 25 Europe rankings are based on a weighted formula that combines each firm’s prestige rating with its scores in several key employment factors to come up with an overall list of the Best Consulting Firms to Work For.

More Asia-Pacific and European Rankings In the Coming Days

This week, we’ll announce the Best Consulting Firms in Asia-Pacific and Europe for Diversity, Innovation, and Firm Culture as well as the Top-Ranking Consulting Firms in the Data & Analytics, Health Care, and Environmental practice areas.
