List of consulting firms in America

PREVIOUSLY I created a list of certain consulting firms in Australia. I have decided to do the same thing for the United States. This list provides quick access to a list of the top consulting firms in America and provides a short description of each. I hope you find it useful.

The list of consulting firms is long, so I divided the firms into 5 categories. I have only listed each firm once, but some firms could easily have been placed under more than one heading. The breakdown is a pretty ad hoc, but hopefully it makes the list a little easier to digest. Within each category, the firms are ordered as they appear in the Vault Guide to the Top 50 Management and Strategy Consulting Firms (2008 edition). Let me know if you find this list helpful.

Without further ado, the 5 categories of consulting firms are as follows:

  1. General business and strategy consulting
  2. IT consulting
  3. HR consulting
  4. Economic advisory and executive education
  5. Litigation support services

List of consulting firms in Australia

AN IMPORTANT step towards obtaining a job in a consulting firm is to create a target list of firms that you would like to work for. This can be a very time consuming process.

With the view to saving you a couple of hours, I have prepared a list of consulting firms operating in Australia. This is not an exhaustive list, so if I have overlooked any good consulting firms (I have), let me know.

To make it easier to find the consulting firm you are looking for, consulting firms have been grouped in one of four categories: Strategy and general business, Human resources, Information technology, and Sustainability. Where a consultancy could have been placed under more than one heading, I have placed under the heading I thought was most relevant.

Although some of the consulting firms listed below operate internationally, I have created this list specifically for Australia, but don’t despair! I intend to create specific lists for other countries, for example, India, the UK, USA, Singapore, and China. I plan to do this over the next few months.

Of all the firms I looked at, I have only included the ones that appeared to be of good quality. If you have used any of these firms, please let everyone know what you thought of them – the good and the bad.

Since there are quite a few firms, I have broken the list down into four categories:

  1. Strategy and general business consulting
  2. HR (human resources) consulting
  3. IT (information technology) consulting
  4. Sustainability consulting
