ScottMadden Named as Top Ranked Firm by Vault

August 30, 2016

ScottMadden, Inc., is ranked among the top 50 best consulting firms and one of the top 20 best consulting firms for energy consulting by, a career website that ranks the top 50 consulting firms annually. Rankings are compiled from a broad survey of consultants who are asked to rank their own firm, peers, and competitors. This ranking combines a firm’s overall prestige score with several factors, such as job satisfaction, culture, training, promotions, diversity, and pay.

This year’s rankings highlight the best firms to work for in the industry, as well as the top firms across various quality of life categories, practice areas, and diversity. This year ScottMadden ranked fourth for firm culture.

The Boutique Consulting Firm ranking provides insight into life at a smaller firm—a better work-life balance and quality of life. Each of the firms is generally considered specialists in their practice areas, and all had fewer than 750 employees at the time of publication. This year ScottMadden ranked seventh among the best boutique consulting firms.

“This is the third year in a row where our firm has ranked in the top 50 best consulting firms,” says Brad Kitchens, president and CEO at ScottMadden. “Every one of our employees contributes to this steady, high ranking, and I appreciate all they do to make ScottMadden one of the very best management consulting firms.”

According to Vault, “ScottMadden has been building a strong reputation in the energy sector for a number of years and shows no signs of slowing down—its headcount is growing as it continues to win work and create a positive feedback loop with clients. As an employer, meanwhile, that reputation ensures that employees have challenging cases from leading clients to work on, even as the firm retains its boutique feel. While it still retains the four-day travel schedule, the firm’s size is such that most employees feel they have both the visibility and the support to ensure that occasional time crunches don’t turn into unmanageable work-life situations. Those same schedule and size issues, however, do come with one drawback (or benefit, depending on your perspective): most of the training you’re going to get at ScottMadden will be the on-the-job variety.”
