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!

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.

Uppers

The team-oriented environment, the intelligence of my co-workers, the high number of cases we get to perform, and the ability to focus on life sciences


Downers

The hours


Comments

All five U.S. offices have a different culture and the location of the office influences to some extent the types of cases you are staffed on. So, it's important to understand how that works before selecting an office.

The projects we complete are very similar to case studies, so take the preparation seriously.

People value creativity so don't be afraid to think outside the box during your interview.
