As Kenway continues to grow, we are humbled that our greatest asset – our employees – recognize our ongoing commitment to the Guiding Principles and company culture that sets our organization apart.”

Vault’s 2023 rankings are based on anonymous survey results of 16,000+ current consulting professionals at 120 consulting firms around the world. The methodology considers each firm’s industry reputation as well as its employees’ satisfaction with key factors influencing their professional lives such as company culture, work/life balance, compensation, overall business outlook, promotion policies, and the ability to challenge.

“First and foremost, our culture sets us apart from the competition,” noted one survey responder. “I read that a great career is equal parts challenge and support, and I believe Kenway does the support part better than anybody. This is because of our mission, ‘To Help and Be Helped,’ and a strong attachment to our Guiding Principles. The fact we live these principles has created a very familial, collaborative and supportive environment, where employees enjoy working and socializing together. This love of Kenway also manifests in better client delivery, because we care more.”
