Big 4 Shut Out of Working Mother’s List of the Top 10 Companies For Multicultural Women

The Working Mother list of the top 50 companies for multicultural women came out last week, and I honestly didn’t realize this was a thing until I saw this self-congratulatory tweet from PwC while scrolling through Twitter this morning:

KPMG and EY also sent out tweets last week patting themselves on the back for making the list. Without having looked at Working Mother’s top 10 companies, I just assumed, given these tweets, that most, if not all, of the Big 4 firms made the first 10. Nope. No PwC. No Deloitte. No KPMG. No EY. No accounting firms.

Really? That’s kind of pathetic.

Instead, the top 10 companies for multicultural women, listed in alphabetical order, are:

  • Accenture
  • ADP
  • Anthem
  • IBM
  • L’Oréal USA
  • New York Life
  • Procter & Gamble
  • Verizon
  • Visa
  • WellStar Health System

Obviously, PwC, KPMG, and EY were among the top 50 companies listed. But no Deloitte, which makes sense because, well, no tweet. And it’s a little surprising because Deloitte and EY made the top 10 in Working Mother’s 100 Best Companies list for 2018.

First-timer Moss Adams was the only non-Big 4 accounting firm that made the list of the top 50 companies for multicultural women.

Let’s take a look at how PwC, KPMG, EY, and Moss Adams compare to three of the top 10 companies—ADP, Verizon, and Visa—in five different staffing and management areas for multicultural women employees:

Percentage of U.S. Workforce

ADP: 22%
Verizon: 17%
Visa: 27%

PwC: 16%
KPMG: 16%
EY: 18%
Moss Adams: 14%

Percentage of Corporate Executives

ADP: 9%
Verizon: 8%
Visa: 0%

PwC: 3%
KPMG: 3%
EY: 9%
Moss Adams: 5%

Percentage of Senior Managers

ADP: 9%
Verizon: 9%
Visa: 17%

PwC: 10%
KPMG: 9%
EY: 17%
Moss Adams: 3%

Percentage of Managers

ADP: 13%
Verizon: 10%
Visa: 25%

PwC: 17%
KPMG: 15%
EY: 22%
Moss Adams: 13%

Percentage of Top 20% Earners

ADP: 9%
Verizon: 10%
Visa: 16%

PwC: 10%
KPMG: 6%
EY: 10%
Moss Adams: 7%

Actually not bad in most areas, especially EY.

Anyway, congratulations I guess to PwC, KPMG, EY, and Moss Adams for at least making Working Mother’s top 50 companies list. Deloitte, do better.
