To compile the list, Ivy Exec surveyed current and former employees of over 300 global consulting firms. We narrowed down our list of nominated companies then asked participants to identify the top firms to work for within the industry in the coming year. Firms were divided into two groups according to the number of employees, with firms employing approximately 1,000 consultants or less classified as boutiques.

Each of these firms was then scored according to: the number of votes it received, a proprietary Market Index formula developed by the Ivy Exec’s Research Team, and a “grade” based on insights collected from current and former company reviews. For these company reviews, employees rate companies across five factors: Work, Culture, Money, Leadership, and Prestige.

Other top-ranked Consulting Firms include: Mercer, CBPartners, Keystone Strategy, Censeo Consulting Group, and Decision Resources Group.

As well as rating the companies, professionals included personal reviews on the five aforementioned metrics. For example, one Boston Consulting Group employee weighed in, “Experienced and insightful consultants, total commitment, tons of know-how, and a strong international network. Most of BCG's clients are not one-time relationships. They come back again, which proves that BCG creates and delivers value to the client.”

Ivy Exec has posted employee feedback on each firm’s Company Profile page, which can be found by clicking on a company’s name on the ranking list.
