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

Comments

L.E.K. offers the best place to immediately gain immense experience and responsibility, and small case teams, with minimal un-allocated time. Entry-level employees have the opportunity to work in a large variety of industries in a short amount of time. However, entry-level employees have very little say over what type of case they work on.

Consulting is tough hour-wise no matter which firm you join. You will feel it only when you are experiencing it yourself. At least 2 years of consulting experience is great to have for everyone.
