Fortune magazine, with the help of human resources research and consulting firm Great Place to Work, recently announced its 2018 ranking of the Best Companies in Consulting and Professional Services, which featured a number of national accounting firms and related organizations.

Utilizing anonymous feedback from over 339,000 employees via 50-plus survey questions, Fortune and Great Place to Work constructed the list of professional services firms and businesses that look to "keep their employees happy and motivated." Sample questions included: "Do employees trust the people they work for," "Are they treated fairly and with respect," "Are people proud of their work," and "How effective are executives at leading the organization and giving everyone an opportunity to innovate and contribute to the organization’s success?"

To be considered for the list, companies were required to meet the Great Place to Work-Certified standard, with survey results needing at least a 95 percent confidence level and a 5 percent or lower margin of error.

The following accounting and accounting-related organizations were featured on the 2018 "Best Companies in Consulting and Professional Services" ranking:

  • No. 4. Plante Moran
  • No. 6. Deloitte
  • No. 7. Crowe Horwath
  • No. 9. Ryan
  • No. 11. Protiviti
  • No. 15. CBIZ
  • No. 17. Ernst & Young
  • No. 19. Baker Tilly
