Midlevel in Strategy | Boston, MA | 2015 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

My colleagues are crazy smart, I have the opportunity to learn a lot, I get immediate & significant management opportunities

Downers

tough, short cases (hours / expectations), lack of diversity (mostly at Manager / MD level)

Comments

As an Associate I was extremely well-prepared for business school. Now I am back with the firm & hoping to learn as much about managing teams and client relationships as I did about Excel, PowerPoint and analytical thinking. L.E.K. is challenging (tough work / life) but the work is interesting & problem-solving with a team of incredible people is the fun part.
L.E.K. is different from its competitors in that cases are shorter, more PE & high level strategy development. Also, as Consultants, you get immediate management responsibility.

Great people, very interesting work, and excellent compensation.

4.2 of 5 stars

Entry-level in Strategy | Boston, MA | 2015 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

My favorite part of working at L.E.K. is the people. We get to do the same strategy work and interesting due dilligences as at other firms, except everyone is the office every day. So we get very close with our class and build friendships that extend beyond work

Downers

We do work a lot, and that can be challenging - especially as a transition from right out of school - but I have to say it is rewarding as well, so take that for what its worth

Comments

If a candidate is interested in L.E.K., I would recommend that they find someone within the firm to reach out to. Anyone here would be willing to share their experience, and that is really the best way to evaluate a firm. Get the honest truth straight from the horse's mouth, as they say. The people here are great and are happy to help anyone who is interested in applying or signing, just ask.
