The people at L.E.K. are the absolute greatest, I hang out with a lot of my colleagues after work and on weekends


Downers

L.E.K. could have a little more client contact for the associate level


Comments

High-level, fast-paced strategy--rapid fire cases for a ton of different industries. Definitely why I signed up and in my first cases I saw everything from aviation to tech to retail, it's a hell of a ride!

Uppers

The People. Engaging work. People. No travel. People


Downers

Unpredictability of hours. Cold calling. Sourcing. Lack of vacation days. No significant gym reimbursement


Comments

I am fortunate to be surrounded by incredible co-workers and do engaging strategy work. Hours are actually reasonable. I love the fact we rarely travel for work. You will be exposed to a fair amount of private equity work.

Collegial and highly collarborative environment with incredibly personable and intelligent colleagues

HOurs can get long, little to no downtime between cases, limited vacation days and lack of unconventional benefits (no childcare or gym onsite, no 401k matching)

Uppers

The culture, the people, and the interesting work


Downers

Some tough hours


Comments

L.E.K. has come a long way in the last 5 years. The firm has progressed from its healthcare and due diligence focus and is a leader in many other areas like retail & consumer goods and aviation. L.E.K. gives its people earlier opportunities to manage staff, lead workstreams, and interact with clients that its key competitors of McKinsey, Bain, and BCG. The experience gained in the first 2 years after a MBA or undergraduate degree at L.E.K. is unmatched in the industry.

Intellectually challenging and stimulating - I am always learning new things, even after 5 years.


Downers

Stress levels can be high at times, but you have great teammates to help you through it.


Comments

You will get a chance to take on a lot more responsibility than you expected early on, as well as coaching and guidance to help you take advantage of it.
