Vault Ranking: Big 4 Firms Keep Things Respectable-ish Among Consulting Employers

No, they aren't Bain, Boston, Booz, or McKinsey but the Big 4, especially Deloitte and PwC, manage to hold their own as an employer of consulting professionals. That's according to the latest pecking order out of Vault, anyway.

Here's the top ten for your disputing pleasure:

1. Bain & Co.
2. McKinsey
3. Boston Consulting
4. Booz & Co.
5. Deloitte
6. Oliver Wyman
7. A.T. Kearney
8. PwC
9. Analysis Group
10. Censeo Consulting 

Other notables:
19. Accenture
38. Navigant
42. FTI Consulting
48. Ernst & Young
49. KPMG

Oddly, the Big 4 do much better in the Prestige ranking, with all of them appearing in the Top 10 with the exception of KPMG who was 11th.

1. McKinsey
2. Boston Consulting
3. Bain & Co.
4. Booz & Co.
5. Deloitte
6. PwC
7. Ernst & Young
8. Accenture
9. Monitor Group
10. Oliver Wyman
11. KPMG

The methodology for the flagship ranking breaks down as follows:

  • 30 percent prestige
  • 15 percent satisfaction
  • 15 percent firm culture
  • 15 percent compensation
  • 10 percent work-life balance
  • 10 percent overall business outlook
  • 5 percent promotion policies

In other words, the Big 4 do well in the fancy pants department but less so in some of these other areas. Adjust your shallowness accordingly.
