Johnston Carmichael made it into the Sunday Times list slipping in at 92.

Ernst & Young is the only Big Four firm missing from the latest Top 25 best big companies to work for league table.

PwC were ranked highest at 5th (11th in 2011)place followed by KPMG at 8th (9th) and Deloitte at 16th (15).

KPMG apparently has the fewest disruptive people working for them out of the Big Four taking 4th place, closely followed by PwC at 5th and Deloitte at 9th.

PwC chairman Ian Powell: "To move up from 11th place last year to fifth this year, with our highest ever scores, is a fantastic achievement. The votes tell us we're making a mark in the areas that matter to our staff."

"The Best Big Companies judges highlighted that the competition gets tougher every year, and PwC's individual category scores this year were the highest ever, particularly in leadership, personal growth and team working. Judges also praised the firm's strong environmental record."
