»10th Anniversary: The Best Firms to Work For

Best FirmsSince we launched our annual Best Firms to Work For ranking back in 2001, 33 different consulting firms have appeared on the list. But for the last seven years, only one firm has appeared at the very top of the list.

Bain & Company’s incredible run as our Best Firm to Work For began way back in 2003 and is still going strong. Only one firm, however—The Boston Consulting Group—has managed to appear on the list every single year. During that span, BCG has never ranked lower than fifth.

Over the years, the survey’s popularity and significance have grown. With survey responses topping 10,000, we’ve expanded the rankings twice—first to include Best Small Firms to Work For in 2008 and to 15 winners in each category in 2009.
