Wait what? No way that they calculate dollars per hour and compare it...

It's probably based on hours worked.

BCG op, it's supposed to be total comp, but keep the source material in mind. Charles Aris makes its money putting consultants into industry. They have a vested interest in making industry exits look attractive to consultants

like

Also, they are probably comparing your last full year of consulting salary to your first year in corporate - at MBB each year in consulting can be 20%+ salary growth, so a 5-10% bump followed by a wait until your boss retires or dies promotion trajectory is very different

Stay away from Charles Aris...they have commoditized us into dull Strategy Jobs with limited future. Very bad for consultants.

From my experience with recruiting, I'd say it's accurate but with the caveat from Bain- Industry pays higher especially for pre-MBA roles, but slower trajectory.
