Award Methodology
The rankings are a result of Vault’s annual Accounting Survey. Conducted from November 2014 to February 2015, the survey asked more than 8,300 accountants of all levels to assess their peer accounting firms on a scale of 1 to 10 based on prestige (respondents were unable to rate their own employers and were asked to rate only firms with which they were familiar). Accountants were also asked to rate their own firm in various quality of life categories, including firm culture, compensation, overall satisfaction, training, diversity, hours, and work/life balance, among others. To calculate the Accounting 50 Ranking, Vault used a weighted formula that combines a firm’s prestige and quality of life ratings, creating an overall “best to work for” ranking that we call the Vault Accounting 50.
