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.
