Comments

L.E.K. Consulting is a great place to start a career. You will gain many skills in a very short amount of time and if you are good, you will get the chance to have a significant amount of responsibility (e.g., running a small case team or more commonly running a module as an experienced Associate).

Interesting work and good industry focus, but training and client-facing exposure could be improved / increased
