The people! It's a very team oriented firm and people all generally really truly like each other in and outside of the office


Downers

The unpredictable nature of the hours


Comments

I think LEK is an incredible first job out of school. You get very broad exposure across industries and service lines. You are able to "swap" to an international office for 6 months. You are given qutie a bit of responsibility from day one and you meet great people that become true friends in and out of the office.

Rapid development, great people, and sleeping in your own bed at night


Downers

Unpredictable hours


Comments

LEK is a great place to start your career. The experience I have had thus far compared to my friends at other top firms (including MBB) is unrivaled and I feel that I will be prepared for whatever opportunity I may pursue after my time here. While it may not have the name recognition of MBB, it is known and highly respected by all the entities you would want to be known be (PE shops, corporate strategy groups, business schools). If you are interested in the pure strategy side side of management consulting, there is no better place to be than LEK.

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.

Comments

Will get more experience in a short amount of time than at other firms

If you are happy at the firm, the upward mobility is limitless

If you are unhappy, it is a great resume builder, so it's a Win/Win
