What's the ladder at each consulting firm?

Deloitte Consulting:

Analyst (Undergrad) => Consultant = > Senior Consultant (MBA) => Manager => Senior Manager => Principal / Director.

Principal E => Principal D => Principal C = > Principal B = > Principal A.

Director should be (not 100% sure on this) => 1,2,3,4,5.

Deloitte also has the specialist route - for its technology folks that don't want to do Project Management and want to simply stay in the system.

Analyst => Specialist => Senior Specialist = > Specialist Master = > Specialist Leader

I know you can't make Principal this route but not sure about Director.

For McKinsey, the first post-MBA position is Associate, not Consultant. Everything else above is accurate.

From memory, so I could be off.

McKinsey:
Business Analyst -->(MBA) --> Associate (Senior Associate) --> Engagement Manager --> Associate Principal --> Partner --> Director

Bain:
Associate Consultant (Senior Associate Consultant) --> (MBA) --> Consultant --> Case Team Leader --> Manager --> Partner

BCG:
Associate --> (MBA) --> Consultant --> Project Leader --> Principal --> Partner

(EDITED: Thanks for the corrections)

LEK:

Associate --> Associate Consultant --> (MBA) --> Consultant --> Manager --> Partner (technically, the title is VP)

Preferably all positions on the ladder would be really helpful. I would kind of like to understand comp in this industry/firm.
