Bain & Company once again earns #1 spot across all three of Vault’s consulting rankings in North America, EMEA, and APAC

BOSTONFebruary 21, 2024—Bain & Company has received the number one spot for each of Vault’s 2024 Consulting rankings in North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia-Pacific (APAC) for the second year in a row. The firm also ranked highly in subcategories focused on quality of life, firm culture, career development, and diversity efforts within its respective regions.

“The Vault consultant rankings are a reflection of how our extraordinary teams experience life at Bain, and we are delighted to receive this global recognition from them for a second year in a row,” said Kara Gruver, Bain & Company’s chief talent officer. “I was particularly thrilled to see such positive feedback on our training and mentorship programs, our benefits, and our unique firm culture. This inspires us to continue to keep pushing on our commitments to make Bain the best place to work.”

With unmatched expertise and reputation, Bain provides an environment committed to employee growth and advancement. Employees laud Bain’s collaborative teams; access to mentorship, professional development, and career growth; challenging work; and opportunities to engage with clients.

Vault’s rankings in North America, EMEA, and APAC are based on each regions’ annual Management and Strategy Consulting Survey. 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, among others. For the purpose of the Vault rankings, a weighted formula was used to combine findings from both prestige and quality of life rankings to create one “Best to Work For” category.

Bain & Company has earned recognition around the world as a great place to work. The firm ranked as the top consulting firm on Glassdoor's list of 100 Best Places to Work, ranking #1 in the U.S. and UK in 2024. It is currently the only company in North America to earn a number one ranking on six separate occasions, and the firm has consistently ranked in the top four since Glassdoor founded the list in 2008. Bain & Company was named as one of Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” in 2023. Additionally, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation recognized Bain as one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality” this year, with the firm earning a perfect score on the organization’s annual Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for 17 consecutive years.
