L.E.K., one of the most challenging and rewarding places to launch your career in business

4.4 of 5 stars

Midlevel in Retail & Consumer Goods | Boston, MA | 2015 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Broad industry exposure, fast pace of learning, international opportunities & great culture

Downers

As with most top-tier consulting firms, hours can be long

Comments

I strongly believe that the associate position at L.E.K. is one of the best introductions to the business world that you can get out of college. I can think of no better place where you can build such a solid foundation of core business skills within a 2-4 year period. After nearly three years at the firm, I still find myself challenged on a daily basis and have been amazed by how much I’ve learned in such a short period of time. I also cannot speak highly enough of the international opportunities available to associates and as a result there is a strong sense of community among L.E.K.ers around the globe. Whether I’m in London, Sydney, Singapore or nearly any other major city in the world, there’s almost always at least one L.E.K.er I know and I find that international network invaluable.

The speed at which you are given responsibility on your case teams, to manage associates and also manage the entire team. I also like that I do not have to travel very much in genearl.

Downers

The hours can be tough sometimes, though they are likely better than other firms.

Comments

L.E.K. is a great place to get experience in consulting, espeically in certain areas where we are especially strong - namely, life sciences, healthcare, and airlines. There are some great people here, so you can make great friends and have a pretty good social life. It is nice to work somewhere where you generally like everyone around you and everyone you are working with.

Plenty of responsibility in a collaborative team environment.

Comments

L.E.K. has a reputation of being a tough place to work. The firm has spent considerable effort addressing these historical concerns and has made real improvements. Consulting can be a challenging industry, but in net, it is not any harder at LEK than other firms

Broad experience, rapid learning curve

Office culture and short projects

Downers

Work hours can be long

Comments

A key consideration with L.E.K. is the low travel model. While many young consultants find travel appealing, it is a major cause of burn-out. At L.E.K. the lack of travel helps create a sustainable career path and strong office culture.

Variability and extent of hours, but this isn't unique to L.E.K. and has gotten better over time

The people. Good compensation. Ability to get promoted quickly through the ranks without an MBA.

Downers

Poor communication from leadership. Does not have the prestige of a few other firms but I think the quality of the work we do it superior.

Ideal first job
