PwC Is Again the ‘Most Prestigious Accounting Firm’

And the award for the “Most Prestigious Accounting Firm” goes to… wait for it… PwC.

It’s the 12th straight year the US branch of the international accounting and business services firm

PricewaterhouseCoopers International has placed first on the annual list of the top 50 prestigious firms.

Produced annually by careers site Vault, the rankings are based on some 10,000 surveys completed by accounting professionals. Among the questions, participants give a prestige ranking to firms other than their own.

From year to year, the firms making the top of the list haven’t varied much. This year’s rankings (for some reason Vault dates the list as 2021) are largely a repeat of last year’s with the big four accounting firms taking the top four places: 1-PwC; 2-Deloitte; 3- EY; and, 4-KPMG.

In fact, most of the firms on the list were there last year. Joining the list this year are Frazier & Deeter in 45th place; Warren Averett 47; and, Squar Milner 50.

What’s particularly striking about PwC is how it dominates Vault’s other lists:

  • #1 on the 2021 Vault Accounting 50
  • #2 on the 2021 Best Accounting Firms for Diversity
  • #1 in each of the three categories on the Best Practice Areas list.
  • Multiple rankings among the top 5 and 10 in the various categories on Vault’s 2021 Best Accounting Firms

So often rated so highly on these Vault lists that in reporting on the list released last week, the irreverent accounting blog GoingConcern suggested, “Vault might as well call it the PwC Most Prestigious Accounting Firm Award at this point.”
