hierarchy


Comments

If you are an advanced degree candidate in the life sciences and are interested in eventually working in biotech or pusuing entrepreneurial enterprises in the space, I would argue that there are four firms that should be in your "must apply to" category: the big 3 (i.e. McBain Group) and L.E.K.

Lack of client exposure

You will get a great breadth and depth of work in a short period of time, but you may not get the client exposure you want

great people, minimal travel, competitive salary, great exit opportunities, top business school placement

hours can be long, but typical with industry average


Comments

L.E.K. is an incredible firm to work for, allowing consultants to build upon a variety of skill sets and assume significant responsibilities early on as a result of the smaller size of the firm. Its strong quantitative and analytical capabilities provide a well-rounded experience that allows the firm to derive more substantive and data-rich recommendations. L.E.K. also has a noteworthy private equity focus across a broad range of industries. L.E.K.'s business school placement is superb, placing candidates in the top business schools. The firm provides great exit opportunities with many transitioning to startups, finance positions, PE firms, and industry. Although the hours can be long, it is fairly aligned with industry standards L.E.K. does a good job of helping employees maintain a work-life balance through implementing programs such as a weekly "Out by Six Day"

Comments

This is a great firm for post MBAs, especially if you have prior management experience and don't want to go back to being an individual contributor. Associates at L.E.K. are doing the work that post MBAs do at most other firms
