McKinsey: Operations salaries same as strategy salaries?

Anyone know if associates in the operations practice have similar salaries and benefits as those in other "prestigious" practices within McKinsey?

Tons of general data on Glassdoor but not for this specific question

Hi Anonymous,

McKinsey has a very rigorous salary structure. As an incoming Associate you will be compensated the same as any other associate. The only exception would be if you were hired as an Expert.

I was given the salary for an Ops consultant and it was baselined at $110k, which is higher than the management consulting analysts @80k, is this a change for McK? — Emily on Jan 28, 2019
