This is right for TC. With some variations at low and high end based on tenure and performance variances.

Bain levels don’t map 1:1, but at bcg and McK it’s $250k to $330k for top performers. I would guess that if you adjusted for tenure, Bain will fall in a similar range

3-400K ish.

Bain SM is just wider - but rest assured that Bain M1 comp is within $5k of PL1 - they all monitor and stay close to one another

Hope everyone had a good start of the week! I have a quick question regarding MBB referal. I’ve been working for almost a year at a life sciences consulting firm with a PhD in STEM. Recently I've been considering to move to MBB due to project types, team dynamics, client interaction, etc. I've talked to friends in McKinsey and bcg (former case partners), they are very willing to refer me but they are relative new. And they recommend me to network with partners to get better chance.
