Boston Consulting Group
Average total pay: $139,921
For: Consultant*
Best companies rank: 8

Strategy consultant to Fortune 500 companies starts new consultants at six-figure pay, and it gets better the longer they stay. Because of a lock-step advancement system, recruits can anticipate their total pay to increase tenfold over 10 years -- they may well be earning a million-dollars-plus annually a decade after they join.

BCG also pays attention to diversity: 34% of consultants are women and 26% are minorities. It created a career database and launched a global newsletter for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees. BCG scored a perfect 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index.
