Listicle of the Day: The Accounting Firms on Fortune’s 25 Best Large Workplaces in Consulting and Professional Services

blocks stacked up to signify a ranking

Yikes that headline was a mouthful, sorry about that. Anyway, Fortune has released its 25 Best Large Workplaces in Consulting and Professional Services list and you might be surprised to learn that only one Big 4 firm cleared the top ten. Actually you might not be surprised by that at all once you learn the methodology:

To determine the Best Workplaces in Consulting & Professional Services list, Fortune partnered with people analytics company Great Place to Work who analyzed the survey responses of over 104,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies in the consulting and professional services industry.

The survey enables employees to share confidential quantitative and qualitative feedback about their organization’s culture by responding to 60 statements on a 5-point scale and answering two open-ended questions. Collectively, these statements describe a great employee experience, defined by high levels of trust, respect, credibility, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. In addition, companies provide organizational data like size, location, industry, demographics, roles, and levels.

Let’s take a look at that Top 10. You’ll note the firms on this list provide a variety of professional services of the consulting variety including legal, staffing, and engineering.

  1. Accenture
  2. Orrick
  3. Protiviti
  4. Alston & Bird LLP
  5. Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc
  6. Deloitte
  7. Plante & Moran, PLLC
  8. Perkins Coie LLP
  9. Modern Technology Solutions, Inc.
  10. RSM US LLP

KPMG came in #11, EY #14, and PwC lagged behind the pack at #18. A few other familiar faces on the Top 25 include Crowe, Baker Tilly, and WithumSmith+Brown.

This concludes your listicle of the day.
