No other industry offers as clear-cut an argument for creating a great workplace as the consulting and professional services industries. Success in this sector rests upon firms’ abilities to attract and retain the most talented employees available so their companies can deliver market-beating knowledge-based services and win clients. Great Place to Work®’s Great Rated!™ is proud to celebrate companies leading the way in this sector with the announcement of its People’s Picks: 20 Great Workplaces in Consulting and Professional Services list, released today. All rankings are decided by employees themselves through statistically significant and anonymous surveys. The Boston Consulting Group, Cooley LLP and Kimley-Horn and Associates took the top three spots for the large companies recognized. ALKU, Visionist and Convergence Consulting Group are among the top winners for small companies.

“The companies on this list recognize that it is a business imperative to make remarkable investments in employees in order to compete in their marketplaces,” says Kim Peters, CEO of Great Rated!™.  “In doing so, many pay particular attention to professional development opportunities, work-life support, giving back to their communities and providing rewards that go beyond a traditional compensation package.
