Uppers

Diversity of casework, calibre of colleagues, the international opportunities and the exit opportunities


Downers

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.

Early responsibility


Downers

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
