Early responsibility

Lack of scale

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

Variability of hours

Comments

While the hours are variable and can be long for certain projects, 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.

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"
