All self-reported Glassdoor data, very outdated for Bain so I'd imagine for others as well, and it's the median salary, thus post-MBA heavy firms do comparatively well. A real list would probably be entirely made up of hedge funds and PE shops. Even the FB salary survey is more informative than this article

Not super surprising, Deloitte pays way below industry standard for tech roles until you get into the Manager range

I imagine these are heavily weighted because of large salaries at the top.

^Regardless expected more weight from others

It's median not mean so there is no weighting

Not really apples to apples.

This does not a agree with the fishbowl salary survey a couple of weeks ago. Bain was at the top followed by Accenture
