HR leadership needs to go, hours can be long, smaller firm means less case variety

I have been extremely pleased with my experience at L.E.K. Compensation is attractive, the path for career growth is clear, colleagues are accomplished and supportive, and we work in exciting practice areas (aviation strategy, cutting edge life sciences, ancillary revenue). L.E.K.'s stature and reputation continues to grow and I am excited to see what happens in the next 5 years.

Fantastic personal and professional growth opportunity

4.6 of 5 stars

Entry-level in Strategy | Boston, MA | 2016 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Early management responsibility, strategy focus, limited travel

Downers

Lack of diversity

Comments

L.E.K. is truly a great experience to get early management responsibility and not burn out by all of the travel typically associated with the industry. The strategy focus and generalist approach allows you to see a lot of different areas, and the short tenors of the projects allow you to work with a wide range of partners and manage numerous individuals. The longer I'm with the firm, the more I realize the flat, caring nature of the entire upper management team. L.E.K. is an amazing opportunity!

At L.E.K. you'll likely have more projects (and therefore more experience), as well as earlier managerial responsibility than other firms.

Uppers

the people!!! the office culture. the low travel. and the early managerial opps

Downers

lean teams with more managerial opps sometimes means long hours. less awareness of brand than top 3 too

Comments

In addition to everything else that is super important, it's worth reviewing firm's staffing policies. We get to give our preferences, but we are staffed by an allocations team. Some firms require you to network with partners / apply to get staffed on projects which may not be ideal for someone looking for more"general" strategy or consulting experience. It's worth the question to various firms during the recruiting process.
