If you want accurate benchmarks you need to go to management consulting firms like Aon Hewitt, Mercer, Hay, Towers Perrin, HRBS etc.

For eg. there is no way an average IT guy can hit $125k in 6 years like what they report. High fliers possible, but as an average, no.

I agree even mid and back office jobs in banks make a lot more than outside, but you loose credibility when you quote a recruitment agent.
6 years to hit 125K is not impossible. But it's whether you have the luck to enter such companies & whether you can tahan. Esso and UBS offer such kinda salary.

My fren in earned 6000 after 6 yrs in Esso plus his bonus everything it's more 125K. Another fren of mine in UBS, 7K after 7 yrs ...also abt 125K .
