BCG named Best Small Company on FORTUNE's '100 Best Companies to Work For' list

The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) has been named the Best Small Company in America and one of the top 10 overall on FORTUNE's annual 100 Best Companies to Work For list.

Strong employee development, a supportive culture, intensive investment in training, and progressive benefits helped the firm rank 8th overall, up from 11th last year.

Ernst & Young LLP rose to number 25 on the list of 100 companies, and ranked number 8 on the large company list. Ernst & Young is the only Big 4 firm that has consistently been on the list for nine years.

Bain & Co (45), PricewaterhouseCoopers (58), Booz Allen Hamilton (63), Deloitte & Touche Tohmatsu (76) and KPMG (97) were also on the list.

Google, the internet search company, was ranked the top company to work for in America largely due to amenities offered to employees, such as laundry, dry cleaning and automotive services, a swimming spa, gourmet meals, on-site massage and free on-site doctors, FORTUNE said.

Ranking second was Genentech, the biotech company that topped the list last year, followed by Wegmans Food Markets Inc.

The list was compiled for Fortune by the Great Place to Work Institute in San Francisco, using survey responses from more than 105,000 employees from 446 companies.

Two-thirds of a company's score for the list was based on what employees said about attitudes toward management, job satisfaction and camaraderie.

The Boston Consulting Group

BCG scored high in pay and benefits for salaried and hourly employees. Major women and diversity initiatives, a generous parental leave policy, full domestic partner benefits, and backup childcare also factored into the rankings. "A push to hire more women resulted in a 25% rise in female consultants from 2004," noted FORTUNE.

BCG founder Bruce Henderson is credited with establishing the firm's culture and focus on career and personal development. He envisioned BCG as a place for "those few who value most a sense of accomplishment and the ability to make the world a better place…. We dedicate ourselves to supporting them, reinforcing them, honoring them and multiplying their effectiveness."

BCG is the first consulting firm to be ranked Best Small Company in America. FORTUNE defines small companies as those with between 1,000 and 2,500 U.S. employees.

Ernst & Young

For nearly a decade, Ernst & Young has been recognized for its People First culture, which is based on a simple principle: when people achieve their best as individuals, clients benefit and business prospers. Ernst & Young fosters an inclusive and flexible work environment that values the individual contributions of its people. By making learning and development high priorities, the firm works to provide every staff member with a challenging and rewarding career and the flexibility they need to achieve their personal and professional goals.

Ernst & Young was also ranked among the Working Mother's Top Ten Best Companies for Working Mothers and Training Magazine's Top 100. Ernst & Young has been named to DiversityInc's Top 50 Companies and was recently recognized by the Human Rights Campaign as one of the 2007 Best Places to Work for GLBT Equality.
