Our Approach

Our approach is designed entirely around delivering accurate, confidential and highly actionable data products.


In addition to all the customary compensation analyses of market means, percentiles and ranges, Vencon Research reports include a full set of raw data per line of business or service line, per career level and sub-level and per component of remuneration. For those clients requiring quick and precise access to only the most relevant information, our reports offer an interactive summary dashboard. Our reports thus enable clients to comprehensively analyse each market’s data in the manner and level of detail best suited to their requirements. Furthermore, our reports’ data tables, graphics and summaries are regularly reviewed and revised in response to client needs.


While providing precise and actionable data, Vencon Research’s reports cover more than 70 countries worldwide, including all of the mature, as well as the key emerging consulting markets. Working with more than 500 of the world’s leading firms, Vencon Research’s clients range from the world’s largest IT specialists, to include global full-service providers and internationally renowned strategy houses, as well as many important independent boutique firms. Our reports represent over 650,000 incumbents ranging from junior administration and support staff, consultants across all career (sub-)levels to senior partners.

Cost effective

Vencon Research is exclusively a remuneration data provider to the professional services industries; our research and production capabilities are designed for optimal delivery and usability. Clients can purchase a full report tailored to their line of business for less than a typical BA sign-on bonus. With a progressive discount structure, firms may purchase a dozen country reports for the cost equivalent of a single MBA sign-on bonus.


Within Vencon Research, data collection and validation is a continuous process. This enables us to produce salary and benefits reports at several points throughout the year containing the very latest information. ‘Snapshot’ data can be provided in new or rapidly developing markets where scheduled release dates are insufficient.


As their primary asset, management consulting firms are necessarily discreet about their professional staff. By observing the highest standards of data confidentiality, including commitment to any confidentiality agreement deemed appropriate by the client, as well as local and international data-privacy legislation and best-practices Vencon Research has been able to establish its position of trust with the leading firms.


Our clients are the elite of the global management consulting industry and operate to the highest standards in the quality of their research, deliverables and presentations. By setting the same high standards for ourselves, we enable clients to use our reports, graphics and tables in their original form when disseminating or presenting the information.

Primary sourced

The principal sources of data are the HR directors and partners of the participant firms. All data are cross-validated against previous data sets to ensure consistency and accurate comparison in the data as presented.


Vencon Research's report data are sourced from the HR Directors and responsible Partners of the participating firms. Our generic reports can also be tailored to meet specific client needs, for example mapping their own data line against only upper-quartile competitors.
