Ernst & Young LLP debuts on Consulting magazine’s “Best Firms to Work For” list
New York, 20 September 2011 — Ernst & Young LLP announced that it has been named among Consulting magazine’s “Best Firms to Work For” for 2011. Ranked on the list for the first time ever, the firm has the highest debut at 11th place among the list of consulting companies. The results are based on a survey of more than 13,000 respondents representing approximately 350 organizations.
Ernst & Young LLP also ranks third in the “Multi-Service firms” category, one of six different types of firms including Multi-Service, Operations Management, Human Resources, Strategy, Financial Advisory and IT Consulting.
“We are proud to have received a number of ‘Best Of’ honors, but the Best Firms award is especially meaningful because it’s based on the responses of our people,” said Bob Patton, Ernst & Young LLP’s Americas Advisory Vice Chair. “Our people culture is truly our ‘bottled lightning’ that sets us apart and drives our success. It underscores the commitment our people have to delivering exceptional client service and reinforces the pride our people have in making a difference for each client.”
The survey asks for feedback in multiple areas of employee satisfaction. A key reason for Ernst & Young LLP’s overall standing on the list came from Career Development, for which the firm ranked sixth among all participants.
“We are attracting the best and developing the best at all levels,” said Carl Smith, Ernst & Young LLP’s Americas Advisory People Leader. “Our collaborative culture and passion for providing our people with the learning, experiences and coaching they need to develop their careers have been key contributors to our growth and success in the past few years. “
