For the fifth consecutive year, Meridian Compensation Partners was recognized in Consulting magazine’s recently released list of the “Best Small Firms to Work For” in 2016. The rankings are based on an online survey of over 10,000 consultants working for over 300 firms. Meridian ranked #11 on the magazine’s list.

Consulting ranked participating firms and consultants on six categories: client engagement, firm culture, firm leadership, career development, work/life balance, and compensation & benefits.
