IB vs PE vs HF vs VC creme de la creme

Hi everyone, I've read some topics on PE vs HF vs IB vs VC topic. My question is, usually for most of the things out there there is a hierarchy right ? For example, which is the most prestigious consulting firm ? It's MBB (tier 1) then ATK, OW, RB, etc (tier 2). Likewise, if I were to compare the exclusiveness/prestigious among IB, PE, HF, VC which would be considered to be on top of the chart in terms of Pay without any bias ? They are different industries yes, but which one of it comes at the top of the hierarchy or if you were to rank them? Thanks.
