Bain & Company has earned recognition around the world as a great place to work. The firm was named as the #1 company in Glassdoor’s annual “Best Places to Work” list in 2021 and has consistently placed in the top four since the ranking’s inception, earning the #3 spot this year. Bain & Company was named as one of Fortune’s “Best Workplaces for Women” in 2020 as well as one of Fortune’s “Best Workplaces for Diversity” in 2019.

The “Consultant 50” rankings are based on the results of Vault’s annual Management and Strategy Consulting Survey. A record 17,139 consulting professionals of all levels assessed their peer consulting firms on a scale of 1 to 10 based on prestige. Respondents were unable to rate their own employers and rated only firms with which they were familiar. Consultants also rated their own firm’s quality of life in such categories as firm culture and compensation, among others. For the purpose of the Vault Consulting 50 Ranking, a weighted formula was used to combine findings from both prestige and quality of life rankings to create one “Best to Work For” category.
