Bain Takes Top Spot in Consulting's Best Firms to Work For Survey for the 11th Consecutive Year

A little like the Oscars, which turns to the movie industry to tally its votes, Vaults list comes from a survey of consultants who are asked to rank their peers and competitors. Vault ran its survey from March through July and gathered votes from 5,000 consultants at 60 firms, ranging from giant companies like McKinsey and Bain to small outfits like Bates White in Washington, D.C. For the prestige ranking, consultants were not allowed to vote for their own firms, and they were asked only to rate firms with which they were familiar. Vault has been running the survey for a decade, and every year McKinsey has come out on top.
