It's that time of year again: Vault's 2016 Consulting rankings for Asia-Pacific are here!

As with our North America rankings, I'm delighted to point out that both the number of firms and the overall number of consultants participating in our survey in the Asia-Pacific region increased significantly from year to year.

And, as with all our surveys, every response we received came from a verified employee of the firm being surveyed. After that, we simply get out of the way: beyond the weighting for our signature ranking, there are no tricks, algorithms or other editorial input into any part of the ranking process. Consultants rate their own firms on quality of life, and competing firms on prestige. We take those answers, average them, and compile our rankings accordingly: the firm with the highest average score in any given category appears at the top of the list, followed by the next highest, and so on.

To emerge as one of the top firms in our rankings, then, couldn't be simpler: all companies have to do is work tirelessly to keep their employees happy across a range of factors from compensation to work-life balance, while also providing them with the opportunity to grow, develop new skills and make career progress. Simple, right?

With that in mind, I offer my sincere congratulations to each of the firms that qualified in any of our rankings in Asia-Pacific—an honor roll that includes the most prestigious firms in the region,  23 separate quality of life rankings, 11 separate practice areas, 5 diversity rankings, and, of course, the  signature Vault Top Consulting Asia-Pacific ranking, which identifies the best firms in the region to work for.

For a sneak peek of that ranking, here at the top 5 firms for 2016:

  1. Bain & Company
  2. McKinsey & Company
  3. A.T. Kearney
  4. Oliver Wyman
  5. Roland Berger Strategy Consulting

At Vault, we truly believe that researching your future employer is one of the keys to finding the perfect fit that will allow your career to take off. These rankings, and the accompanying firm profiles, are a great way to start taking the temperature of the industry and the firms within it. Who knows: your next employer may be just a couple of clicks away!
