Asia's top consulting firms to work for

It goes without saying that people are any consulting firm’s most important asset. Meet the top consulting firms to work for in Asia.

Recruiting the brightest talent and keeping them onboard is instrumental for the success of every consulting firm in Asia, and as a result, consultancies of all sizes in strive to be a top workplace for their consultants and staff.

So what makes firms a best workplace? In consulting, it relates to a wide variety of criteria, in particular the quality of leadership, the culture within the firm, the impact a consultancy makes at clients, the type of clients and projects offered to consultants, compensation packages (salary and bonus), career development opportunities, and diversity, equity and inclusion.

Other factors that can set Asia’s top consulting employers apart from the rest include work-life balance, secondary benefits, international office transfer opportunities, collaboration and trust, performance management policies, as well as the extent to which a consultancy makes a positive social impact in society.

Asia’s consulting industry is home to dozens of surveys, assessments and benchmarks that evaluate how consultancies score on good employership. Consultancy.org tracks these assessments globally and in Asia, and based on our unique database, we present the industry’s top consulting firms to work for.
