Today, we’re excited to announce the Vault Top 15 Consulting Firms to Work For in Asia-Pacific and in a separate blog post, the Vault Top 25 Consulting Firms to Work For in Europe.
Over the course of this past year, Vault worked closely with more than 100 of the world’s top consulting firms to coordinate the distribution of our annual survey to verified current employees around the world. More than 16,000 consulting professionals participated in our survey across North America; Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA); Asia-Pacific (APAC); and Latin America. Over 6,000 consultants participated in EMEA and APAC. Their responses form the basis of our Asia-Pacific and Europe rankings.
Vault Consulting Rankings highlight the best firms to work for in these regions across 37 categories and include the overall Top Consulting Firms in Asia-Pacific and Europe, as well as the Most Prestigious Consulting Firms, the Best Consulting Firms in fifteen specific Practice Areas, and the Best Consulting Firms to Work For in twenty key quality-of-life factors for each region.

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.

Diversity and inclusion are not simply talking points at all-company meetings; they are requirements for the modern workplace. A company can't reach its potential unless a wide array of perspectives are heard and employees with those differing perspectives are made to feel welcome as their whole selves.
