4.2 of 5 stars

Boston, MA | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

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.

hours (not total hours, but occasional or consequtive 18-hour days - killers)

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.

Primary sourcing

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.
