Complete Australian Consulting Salary Data (2022)

In this post, we compare salaries across Australian consulting firms. We cover the “Big 5” (Deloitte, PwC, KPMG, EY and Accenture) and “MBB” (McKinsey, Bain and BCG) firms and share data in Australian dollars.

These data are sourced from the Australian Financial Review’s Consulting Salary Guide, 325 Consulting Salary Guide, Glassdoor, and LinkedIn salaries.

If you’re looking for US data, check out our McKinsey Salary Data Table, Accenture Salary Data Table, and our Deloitte Salary Data Table.
