How We Determine Military Friendly™ Ratings.
The Military Friendly™ lists are compiled through extensive research and free, data-driven surveys of employers, schools, franchise systems and cities. The survey results that comprise the lists are independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media. Each year, participants are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of Advisory Boards consisting of industry experts from across the country. A full list of board members can be found in each of the Advisory Board pages. To view a specific methodology, select from the list on the left navigation.
