I'd be alittle leary using Auditors for Penetrations anyway, I'd opt
more for a Security Consulting firm that specializes in Penetrations and
who will gladly offer references since it's their livelihood.  They may
even do a limited scope "freebie" to show what they can offer and they
should be able to thoroughly explain their results, if they can't you
don't have to go any further and you're not out any $.

How can companies decide which auditors really do a decent job

I'd first ask the auditors to provide references, and then
contact those companies. If the auditors aren't willing to
provide references, I'd be suspicious.
